Ok, I'm still working on my UFO #4- Nostalgic Garden. On Saturday, I went to pick up my BOM for January and they had a sale on fabric. I decided to get some extra fabric to make pillowcases to go along with my quilt... I try to make pillowcases for each quilt I make but that doesn't always happen. This one will be my quilt and it will go on my new bed. I bought a sleigh bed and I'm looking at mattresses now. We are going down from King Size to Queen Size. I didn't realize how much difference in size there was until we started trying out mattresses. Quite a difference...I want more room in my bedroom so this is one way to do it. It's alot cheaper than reconstruction on the house.
Here's my block 10 of the Marti Michell BOM I'm working on and my pillowcases.
Anyway, I went home, made the pillowcases and made my BOM for next month for this group. I sat down to eat lunch and afterwards worked on my block 8. I made the mistake of turning on the TV and I got interested in a movie so I continued working on my embroidery blocks. I finished block 8. I had to stop for awhile and make a dessert to take over to my son's house. We were going to watch the Cowboys game and have supper at their house. So I made a quick dessert...Rice Crispy Squares. I haven't made these in years and had forgotten how messy they can be. I had to laugh at myself cuz I had all these rice crispies on my hands and couldn't get them off. (Yes, I put butter on my hands but that didn't work too good for me.) So, I just decided to eat it off. I had forgotten how good these were! My DH came in and caught me doing this. He laughed at me and told me I had some on my nose. I did get it finally made and cut up. I wasn't sure if this was a good enough dessert to take over until I went over there. It was a big hit with my grands and son and DIL. I brought home an empty dish. After we put the kids to bed, I was able to work on block 9. I got it almost all done while there. Yeah, the Cowboys won too!
Sunday, I finished block 9 and started on block 10. I'm so happy to be finishing this project and my blocks look exactly like I want them. I'm on schedule with my blocks so far. Monday night, I finished block 10 and started block 11. I called my sister and told her I was working on block 11 and asked her how far along she was. Can you believe that she called me a dirty name? She said she had just finished block 1. I didn't remember that she only collected the blocks along the way and had never done any of the blocks. She said it might be Christmas before we had lunch to celebrate her finish... We'll see.
Here's blocks 8, 9 and 10...only 2 more and I can start putting together.
Til next time....
