    Lou, sorry to hear about your grandmother. Glad you at least were able to visit with her before you returned home. Love the jackets you created.

    Almost there! I got side tracked when that darn stomach virus came back and got me again. It was even worse the second time around. It got my DH too. I was too sick to do precision work so I made a string quilt when I started to recover. Then I had a major loss of confidence when it was time to attach the big circle to the outer frame. After reviewing all the possible options I decided to try freezer paper for stability. It was nerve wracking, but it worked This is my first time ever sewing a complete circle, all as one piece.

    Now I just need to add a border. Not sure if I will use the fabric in the kit or use a Jinny Beyer border fabric.

    I completed another set of 6 placemats. These are for my daughter. I have a friend making custom block printed napkins to go with them - daughter doesn't know about those!

    RockinLou,
    Saw the jacket and hoodie you made. Really nice. Like that sherpa minky too. Going to be making jackets for the GS's 2&3 later this month. Being that we live in S.W. Fla,they will probably wear the "fall" jackets into the winter,so no chance of using that nice sherpa minky. Have a good day,evening, night whatever it is were you are. kathy

    Lou, so very sorry about your Grandmother. How blessed both of you were that you could spend a day with her that both of you remember. We never know what God's timing is, but He does. May you feel a peace about your Grandmother's passing. I loved seeing your finishes. The wall hanging is lovely, and the jacket and hoodie are both so fun!

    The runner is lovely! I always keep a quilted runner on the table, it feels less messy to me that way! This one is fun, great fabric choices!

    very cool! I love placemats and napkins, we use cloth napkins in our home, we don't even own paper ones... I hope this set gets as much love as you have put into making it!
