Day 2

It's now 11:00 in the morning and I did get the corners sewn on the William Morris

I like these corners, there are 3 that look like this

But I'm thinking about redoing this corner. I'll see how I feel about later, if its still bugging me I'll redo it

I have had this book for awhile and I find it very helpful. Helped me remember how to do mitered corners.

So now I'm at Sager Creek hoping for others to sit and sew with but it's not to be.  I'll go to the store on my way back home. It's in the 50's today and I think it's Chili weather.
When I get home I will start on the boys quilts and this quilt.
 Some Kind of Wonderful.
Back in awhile

I'm back, groceries away, ate a little something and just digging these cool temperature outside. It's drizzly, gray and cold. Makes me want to sew even more. But the first thing Ill do is get together all the pieces I have ready to sew on SKOW

Some of the blocks I still need to embroider on and then I have a mess of squares to put together as filler blocks
That is what I'll work on now.

 I Wanted to show this again, this a Dear Jane done in Halloween fabric by a lady at the Quilter's Harvest Quilt Shop  in Higginsville, Missouri.

Back later

It's 8:30 P.M.
I was able to get a good start on the filler blocks. I believe I have most of what I need cut and I started sewing the sections together. 
My plan is to work on this some more tomorrow.

I had to get the boys quilts up and started. Theirs will be an easy quilt. I thought the pattern was so cute and boyish but this was before I went to my daughters and saw how she decorated their room. Has nothing to do with cars. I need to make them thou anyway. Maybe someday I'll make ones to match their room, (spaceships) 
This is my NewFO for last month.

So for dinner I made Taco  Soup. If you haven't tried this recipe I give it to you and you can then. It's one of those easy recipes and prefect for times like this when you just don't want to waste time cooking but you do want a good meal.

1 pound hamburger                               1 1/2 cups water
1 large onion, chopped                           1- 4 1/2 oz. can chopped green chilies
3 - 16 oz. cans red beans                        1 pkg. taco seasoning mix
1 - 16 oz can whole corn, undrained        1 - envelope Hidden Valley Ranch dry salad dressing mix
1 - 16 oz. can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 - 15 oz. can tomato sauce

Cook beef and onion until browned; drain, mix beef  and onion with the other ingredients in a large pan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and let simmer for 15 minutes. (can go longer) Makes 3 1/2 quarts and this soup freezes well and can be kept frozen for up to 3 months.

Now that I'm done for the evening sewing on the machine I think I'll watch some TV and work on the "little dudes" Christmas stocking.  I just started this one so is doesn't look like much, so I'll just show the picture on the package.

Till tomorrow


  1. I love what you've done with the William Morris quilt. The border is stunning. And I can't see a thing wrong with that one corner. I love doing those felt stockings. That one is really cute.

  2. These are all great projects. I think you did a great job with your mitered corners. I'd leave it alone. And I love your NewFO. Great boy's quilt.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
