Happy thanksgiving

No sewing today, just cooking and cleaning and getting ready for tomorrow.  Roasted veggies for pre-Thanksgiving dinner, best way to eat veggies in my opinion!

First mini quilt quilted by me! Finished it on Monday.

Free Motion Quilting

I took a class yesterday, look what I did!  I can "free motion" quilt my projects now!  I couldn't get my machine to do this on my own.  I have an old machine with no manual, luckily one of the instructors of the class has the same type of machine and knew just what to do.  I am so excited!  Just like getting a new toy..

Davies Manor Plantation this weekend

My guild is having an event at Davies Manor Plantation outside of Memphis, TN, a quilt show at the beautiful historic manor plantation.  If you are in the area stop by and look at some gorgeous quilts and tour the house and grounds.  The weather is cooperating, very pleasant and sunny.

I have been working on the cornerstones for Town Square, may have to add another border after this one, DH says it needs to be just a little bit longer.

Not much sewing going on around here

one seam on Town Square yesterday, one the day before that.  I try to at least sit at the machine once a day after work, dinner and playing with the kids.  Town Square now has two borders, hope to get another one on today and one tomorrow, then the wider border around that, and sandwiched by the weekend.  Wish me luck!
