L@@KEEEE almost there

Here is the top so far--I have to trim the outer edges and then add the borders--I did NOT enjoy assembling this--too much on the bias stuff going on! hehehehe
tomorrow will play with the borders--I am going to change those around and make it wider and not as long (I think)...I wont worry about that now! toodles

THIMBLEBERRIES catching up!!

the pictures here are of month's 11 and 12---12 already because our time together in Dec will be partying and eating and sharing ---nothing unusual about that, but it is Xmas that month! :o) All that is left to do is assemble the top!. what in the world is dogtooth? looks like flying geese to me...I was so tempted to leave these out after seeing all the cutting, sewing, marking, etc that was required. Still looks like geese! Glad I didnt leave them out--the top needed them! hehehe
If I get the top assembled, I will post a pic before Turkey day--if not--have a wonderful one, stuff yourselves, be thankful always!

Here is Judy's #8 block! YIPES--this is all of my second attempt--doesnt match up perfectly like the others but it will have to do or else I will stress more! LOL no 2 actually looks 85% better than no 1. but I can settle for a B instead of an A....
and because I lured you here to the *desert*--here is what we have for FALL right out our front door. on the left (orange) are Mums, on the right is a Nandina (Domestica) and at the top are Mountain Marigolds! I love Fall up north but this will certainly do in a pinch!

the usual stuff

this is what I will be using for the challenge in the local guild. you can see I have everything I need for the time being...I guess what remains will be what kind of stitching to do! I am in the process of binding two quilts, too!! I would swear to it that the log cabin quilt came back bigger!!
tomorrow I will be working all day :o)........I hope there will be block 8 before the holiday break begins!! Thimbleberries Party is in Dec---top should be done by then....have to assemble block 11 and assemble----in Jan it starts all over again! Looking forward to it already!!


well, they say, better late than never! LOL--this went together much easier than I first thought--and this makes blocks over the 1/2 way point! we get a break over the holiday season (darn) --- not sure when it starts, but wanna make sure I am caught up with everyone else, for sure...

Below are pics of some of the items I have been working on. previously, I worked 6 days a week at the quilt shop for 3 weeks and then last week only two and I could be found catching up on other things as well. Also, my daughter introduced me to a site that I can play games and such with friends and family around the world! THAT has been much fun and it is addicting! If I am not found posting on lists, I bet you can challenge me to word games and find me playing! Keeps my brain in tact thus far! LOL
the crocheted hat is for a friend in Idaho--Interesting colors that are more vibrant that what the pic shows...after a time, hubby refused to model it for me--guess he thought I was catch a pic of him in it! LOL---The TB strips are the makings of the french braid top for the quilt shop and the block is for the Oct TB club project....on Saturday we begin to assemble the top! OH BOY!!

Lizzie found a house and had an offer accepted and I am delighted. today I began helping them pack up! 5 kids is a HUGE move but this shoud be the last time for years to come....I wish them well and I get make lots of new things for the kids! and mom and dad of course....

going to see what poll results show and play with some hand applique and crochet
I will try not to be gone so long next time! (LOL-I do have another BOM to make already)
