Happy Fingers

Yesterday was a happy fingers day...stitchin',  stitchin' and more stitchin'!  Turned out that HH had a pair of magnifier glasses that he used on his work bench and they are perfect for stitching over 2 threads on linen!  It is getting easier and easier for these older eyes to accomplish one of my dreams for 2013!

5 of us girlfriends met at BJ's Quilt Basket for the first Saturday of the 2013 BOM. I signed up for the Fall Mystery.  There is a registration fee and then it is free each month as long as you complete the previous months block.  You do have to buy your background/focal but the other pieces are provided and more importantly it is a monthly way to make contact with friends.  For those with sensitive dispositions  use my preferred word "derriere" for a**.


The slide show is from the 1st Saturday event and although the photos are the best they will give you an idea of the variety of quilts that come from one pattern and fabric provided.  It is the natural instinct to try and make these quilts your own...so quilters will pick different layouts and different border fabrics.  One of my goals is to complete each months homework my the second week of the month...rather than waiting till the last minute!  BUT, this months block is actually 24!!!  Yes, 24!!! small blocks...well, I guess I had better get stitching! lol Today HH, Enzo and I are heading out to the construction site and then I need to prep more wool projects!
