Summer Stitch In too soon over

well..maybe not. I am EXHAUSTED!!! 6 days of sewing. I tried to post a picture but alas, it's not working (again). I finally completed a project on Saturday afternoon. It is a Schnibble of a pattern called Huble-a giant star. The fabric is so cute. Not a clue what I will do with it. I also am the proud recipient of one of the coveted Ka Ka awards. I really would like to show that. It is a tradition of our little band of Thimble wacko's. It is a vase/jar filled with snippets and scraps. we all trhrow into the vase during the week. I am also happy to say that I did not win any of the left/right/center games thank goodness. Saturday's game came close and I was really sweating it. I won last year and even cutting the blocks smaller ala Bonnie Hunter did nothing to improve the blocks. I finally game them all away. Maybe I will figure out how to fix the picture thingy.

Pat, Pat, Pat....what day is it???

It is hump day!!!   This week is summer stitch in in Silver Thimble Club land.  6 glorious days of sewing, laughing, eating and just plain having fun.

I seem to have made the naughty list...go figure!  I also can't seem to make the blog work right tonight.  So I'll keep writing here.  I am not getting much accomplished.  I broke the Lady GaGa ruler on Monday morning.  Marty let me borrow hers.  I cut out my pattern, worked on it today and I HATE it!!    Maybe I should just find a quiet corner and read Chris's new book. 

We have a great location with lots of room to spread out.  Today we formed the Silver Thimbles Singers.  We worked on our first song "Soft Kitty".  It need some work!

I cracked Pat up this afternoon.  It was good to see her get falling down laughing.  I have no pictures of the quilts being produced.  I was too busy whining about my lack of progress.  Pat has some great stuff on her blog, Silver Thimble Quilt Co.

Movie Date

 So before I get to the details of the movie "date", I thought I should show that I actually got some sewing done.  The block of the week was a bit behind!  I am now all caught up.  # 43-46 done!!  3 more blocks to go.

When I was up in Dalonega, I got the blue fabric for latice.  The pattern read 32 strips of each and I got enough for that.  Problem was it should have been 64.  Back to the drawing board.  I changed the nine patches to five inch squares and will finish this baby as a Just 4 U.  I need a couple of borders and it is done.  I found a piece of fabric at home that goes much better with the nine patch blocks I made.  I will finish that and it will be incorporated into a backing.  I am thinking it will be on the top that I plan to make at Stitch-in next week.

Now to the date.........are you ready???????

Emma and I went to see Despicable Me 2 this morning.  What a cute movie.  I love the minions.  I can't remember the last movie I saw.  Now I want to see the Smurf movie too!  I am sensing a pattern.

Happy Fourth

Most independent cat (Senor Wild Willie) contemplating a very wet day.  He decides to sleep in-so what else is new.  He also lets me know that anything I make, he is entitled to cover with his fur!  Before I put the table runner on, he NEVER lounged on the table.

Just a lazy week

Hump day and what have i accomplished this week?   The only thing is the table runner from last week's workshop.  I attempted to quilt it the way Edyta demonstrated.  Well, that didn't work but I did quilt it and I am satified as it is a first try.

Speaking of hump day-I just love that commercial with the camel in it!  Marty asked me what it was advertising and I did not know.  Had to wait for it to come on again.  (It is for Geico).

Summer Stitch-in is in a couple of weeks and I am still working on what projects I am going to do.  As of now, no clue!

Maybe today I will get myself going.  I am headed for the pool this morning and then we will see!
