Wednesday Preview!

How is your crafting day going?  I took the day off and slept in until 5 am.  After watching a little golf and reading the morning paper, I finished decorating the tree, did a load of laundry, and made a double batch of pumpkin bread.  I sat down at my sewing machine at 7 am and worked on a quilt called "Louisa's Attic" from this months McCalls Quilting.  Here is what I have finished so far. All the blocks are complete and two rows sewn together.  I have one more row to add and then wait for some border fabric to arrive.  I used up a bunch of my Fig Tree fabric.  I know that it isn't a Christmas quilt, but one goes where the spirit moves!

 Last night I finished sewing on the binding of a little table runner.  I used Moda's Wintergreen!

To wrap up the afternoon, I went to the doctor and got a clean bill of heath.  No issues, just my annual check up!  I have some homemade mac and cheese in the oven and some salmon fillets ready to bake in about a half an hour.

It's back to work tomorrow, and then the week end is mine!!


  1. Not a very big sleep in on your day off !! You were very productive and everything looks lovely . Glad your health is ok.

  2. Sounds like a perfect day off!

  4. Gosh 5 am is not a sleep in! I haven't seen that time for years. Your quilts are beautiful. I often love what you've been working on. The table runner in gorgeous. I have some Wintergreen waiting to be made into a quilt.

  5. Your quilt top is wonderful and I really like your table runner made of Wintergreen fabric. I fell in love with Winter green and have the fabric just waiting to make just the right quilt ;-)
