En Provence, part 1

I did part 1 of the mystery. 200 and something 4 patches made.
Go check out Bonnie Hunters blog for her mystery quilt, En Provence.
They were actually kinda fun. Mindless sewing. I needed it today to prep myself for tomorrow.

The Magic of Christmas...

So, I have some catching up to do.
13 blocks finished, 4 cut out, 3 printed. 5 more to come. Primitive Gatherings sew along... Lisa says she is going to have all 25 posted by December 2nd... eek... that's so we can finish it before Christmas. That's a lot to do! I am sure I will get them all sewn & put together. Quilted, don't think so. It will have to take its turn in the next room. I think there's like 15 in waiting.

Blackbird Gathering...

Finished Cheri's free pattern up yesterday. 
I didn't embroider the words on.. not sure if I'm going to. I wanted to see what it looked like without. I have to stare at it awhile before I do. 
All in all.. it's pretty darn cute! Thanks Cheri!

Vintage farm girl.....

Finished this one up today...
I have to admit, I bought the book almost 3-4 months ago, maybe longer. Did like 3 blocks and I was over it. I guess bored. Then a friend texted me one day to show off some blocks she had made and asked me if I had heard of the pattern. Well yes, as a matter of fact! Told her the story and we ended up doing them together. Way much more fun than alone!
Now off to finish some others up that were put on the back burner.

Christmas card...

Took pictures today of my little man. I am pretty sure this one made the Christmas card.

A little late..
I forgot to share the treats I made for the girls at work for Halloween.
Aren't they just the cutest!? It's a Pinterest idea brought to my attention from my daughter Kelly.

We had a couple problems. 
Someone got stuck in the elevator the 2nd night.

Had some WONDERFUL firemen come to the rescue. Kelly had came to visit me and we just sat back and watched. The next night, I'm alone recovering from like 16,000 steps... ( and didn't even see it all) and the stupid fire alarm goes off, only for a minute. Then an all call says false alarm. So I go back in my room and my heart is beating normal again and it goes off again! Crap! This time the all call is saying to evacuate. Crap again! Grab my shoes, room key & purse.. take the stairs down 6 flights with everyone else in their pajamas.. lots of them grabbed their purchases from market believe it or or not. And we get outside and we see people still in the bar. huh?
Seems someone burned tortillas in their microwave on the 7th floor. Only 6th floor and up were evacuated. So while we're watching the fireman AGAIN, knowing that there was no fire, they started passing out glasses of wine to all the people. After like 30 minutes we were escorted back to our floor by one of the fireman. 
But other than that Quilt market was FABULOUS ! We were within walking distance to the convention center. 
Made a few purchases... not as much as some of the other girls... there were 5 of us.
But all in all... I would LOVE to go back.
