Wool tulip basket table mat:  all ready fused and ready to do the hand part
Scrappity do dah:  in Thornberries we have started a new swap.  you can find the pattern HERE.  there are 4 of us swapping.  all my blocks are done! 
Scrappy CheddarBut mine is PINK!!!  I follow Tattered Garden.  I fell in love with this quilt.  I look where I keep all my scrappy precut squares and mercy, the 2" drawer is over flowing.  So I am using this as a leader ender project! 
Mom's red and cream quilt:  When I left, Mom had all the rows sewn together.  She was going to work on the sashing and putting the quilt together! 

lots of 2 patches 

turned into 6 patches and 14 patches

turned into a scrappy block.  I love them!  I made about 5 blocks and have lots more to finish.  not sure of the size yet.  So if you are wanting to swap some 2" squares, give me a holler!  I have several people asking if I will embroider in the center square.  hmmmmm, not sure yet on that either.  Good idea though. 

this is scrappity - do - dah.  The swap with Thornberries.  well, I thought 6 people were swapping.  there are 4.  cutting 1 strip of batik the WOF, gave me 7 6.5 squares.  so in my mind, I might as well make the 7th block I will just make my quilt a little bit bigger.  ok.  well, I made 62 set of 7!  I only needed sets of 4!!!  Yikes!!!  I am going to make a much bigger quilt!  LOL...  I will share pictures of the block later.  They were sooo pretty.  I am anxious to start putting the blocks together.  not sure how long we will be swapping on this one....... 
Well, next week I will be spending with Vicki.  In Williams.  In the cool mountain air.  By ourselves!  Sewing, and sewing, and sewing!  All Halloween stuff.  We are getting ready for the Wicked blog hop.  She signed me up!  LOL.....  She knows me so well...  I love Halloween.  So lets see how much we can get done.  Now, I have lots of Halloween UFOs and we are starting a few new ones.  Wish us luck!
