    Hello RockingLou,
    Glad to see your post. Wondered why you weren't posting. Saw your lovely daughter in that cute red dress. Very nice.
    You and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving. Kathy

    Hi friends, I've missed you all! My mom came to visit for 2 weeks and I've been sewing up some clothes for the kids...

    I had to make a white dress with a blue satin sash for my daughter's debute in the school talent show. She had an amazing performance!

    I've also helped a friend who designs patterns with testing a few out, with great results! It is fun but time consuming.
    DD made the cover page of this one though:

    I'm catching up on work projects these days and getting my head above water in the classroom as well. This full time job, long term guest, part time pattern tester is crazy!!

    Other highlights recently... Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was here IN ENGLISH, and I loved it!! I've also started a 3000 piece puzzle. I'm crazy!! LOL!

    I really like the border quilting. I hadn't thought about paper templates. That will be a good way for me to do some quilting on my Tiara. Thanks for posting.

    Sylvia.... I found the paper template on line... And the corner I drew out on letter size paper. I printed out about 24 pages + 4 corners to get all the way around the quilt.. which measures. 53 x 60 finished.
    No binding.. just did the turn method (sewing front to back with wrong sides out then turned everything so right sides were out).

    I hope to get better photos soon.. it's gonna rain the next couple of days..

    JCY, I thought I had watched the first episode of season 29, but I just checked the website and can't find any from this season. My DD and I LOVE The Amazing Race. It was always our special time.

    Last night I made a string of Christmas bunting for my GS - got it sewn on to bought bias binding tape and when I was measuring the finished item I realised the "fold under" part was only scant 1/8 inch so I didn't catch it when I sewed it down IYKWIM.

    Can't decide if I want to unpick or just sew another line just on the edge on the basis that it won't be seen when it's up on the wall!!! Sigh!! What a dilemma!!!

    I am finishing up the quilt panels with tree and reindeer with lights for my grandchildren for their rooms . The oldest GD came and got hers yesterday, she was very happy and surprised. And then I got to get back to my many UFO s.
    I too have really missed amazing race. I haven't heard why it is not on this year.

    What pattern are you using for the reading pillows? That might be a better alternative to the pillow pet for the older kids.[/QUOTE]

    I thought I had posted info on the instructions, but I can't find the post (maybe I did so on Facebook.) I will get the information to you, either later today or tomorrow.

    Sylvia you bed quilt is awesome! Your fmq is amazing!!!!!

    I've been away again. We moved our son to Toronto, so now the house is empty. I've been looking for work, but that's not going as well as I would like it to be. Ah well. I've been busy making Christmas gifts. Slippers, scarves, aprons, tea cosies and microwave bowls . I'm making some pretty good progress. We put up the tree on Sunday, which makes me smile because I really love the Christmas season. I've got 9 oversized Christmas fat quarters (3 different fabrics, all coordinating) that I've had for a long time. I'm thinking of making a tree skirt with them. Just going to make a 36-40" square quilt and maybe trim the edges like Jenny shows in the tutorial. As of today I am busy overthinking the pattern as usual....

    My latest finish was the Cutting Corners baby quilt. (Pics have been posted and a new album.) I have more FQs & fabric left from that project, so I'm cutting strips to make rail fence blocks, which I plan to alternate with blocks of other fabrics. I found some other FQs today at my LQS that will coordinate.

    I took my DSM in this afternoon for its annual cleaning & check. It should be ready tomorrow to pick up after my dental appt. No time for any sewing today. Tonight it's my weekly reality TV show: Survivor. I've been missing The Amazing Race. Anyone have any idea why it's not on this season?

    I bought some modern Christmas fabric for my daughter and made 2 quilted stockings to hang in her hallway then went on to make bunting to match. She is a very happy chappy! She never asks for much and is under a lot of pressure at present so it was a lovely use of my time to see the smile in her face when I gave them to her - she had no idea I was making them!!

    Now I REALLY need to sandwich and Quilt my growing mound of UFO's x

    That's going to be awesome. Can't wait to see it finished.

    Love that brim to the sun hat! I have all three grandchildren 's quilts finished and two of the three fabric baskets they will be gifted in. Should have the last basket finished this weekend.
    I have two table runners to finish that I could use for gifts this year or put away for next Christmas. I have to fill one more order for a kitchen towel hostess set, and 1 lace angel that was ordered at the craft fair. I'll start on those today since the hostess set is for Thanksgiving.
    My Christmas sewing is just about done, now just some monetary gifts for the kids and grandkids. I'm hoping for a less stressful holiday season and looks like it just may happen this year!
