Day 4 Where did the time go.

Love this picture

It's hard to believe it's the last day and I feel like I haven't made a dent. I figure you could lock me in my sewing room for a year and I probably still wouldn't have it all done.  I think I need to make this my motto

What do you think.

Being that it is Sunday I'll get my sewing done in spurts. 
I'm going to get in a early start, now 8:30 and see what I can done before church, then afterwards I'll get back and give an update. Until then let the fun begin.

Alright it's 1:30 and I'm ready to get back to sewing. This morning I was able to get this months Stash Bee blocks. I hope I was able to get them bright enough for her. They were very easy to put together, and 12.5 " block

Now I am going to make the small churn dash blocks to go on the side of one of the applique block of Scandinavian Christmas I finished a while back

We'll see how much I can get done before I need to go help "the man of the place" load up a few calves that we are going to take to the stockyard this afternoon. I hope and think that these are the last of the calves we need to take until next year.
Till then I'm off .

So it's almost 9 and I have been done for awhile. We had to take a few calves to the stockyard and today they had boys helping on horse back.
Can hardly see the boy helping on left.
I took this picture while sitting in the  truck.

Now for what I did get finish after the last update.
Completed the churn dash blocks

I have small square to still cross stitch to add the the others.

I also prepared 2 more blocks to be appliqued

After these 2, I have only 4 more to go and I can put the top together. It has been a productive time for me and it felt so good being able to sit and sew these past few days. I hope to keep it up and if not at least partake in November's Quiltaton. 

This is me now.

Thanks for following my progress

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.
