I got off early on Friday and did some errands. I went to a two great shops too. One was the Stamp Asylum to pick up a rubber stamp but I didn't get it. The one that came in was too small and not the one I wanted...I'm going to use this stamp to do my siggy blocks and it just wasn't the one. It was fun anyway. I'm trying to do some cards and scrapbooks too. I want to incorporate all of my crafts together. Maybe use some tatting on a card or some sewing on a card or whatever. I'm going to experiment and show you when I do...I left there and went to a great quilt shop. Believe it or not, I didn't buy anything. I planned on going back on Saturday...I stopped on the way home and ate as I planned on sewing when I got home. I got home and thought I would check my emails and look at some blogs and got caught up in that. Some new TV shows came on and I watched those too while still at the computer. Sewing time just didn't happen, but I did enjoy my Friday night TV time! Does that ever happen to you? I can get on the computer and totally lose track of my time. Before I know it, I've been there two or three hours!
I have got to stop that or I won't get anything done.
I did get my blog back to where I could find things again. And, I got to where I understand the new editor system with blogger better. So, I'm happy with it for now. I had to play around with the pictures to get them where I wanted them but now I understand it. At least, until next time...
I woke up Saturday to some much needed rain. I didn't want to get out in the rain so I just went on up to my sewing room. I thought I would whip out the 9 patches and put the quilt together then go to the quilt shop. Well, it kept raining and I just kept on sewing. I put together the big 9 patches, then onto the next step.
Then, I had to make 24 - 5 1/2" blocks of this: these are a variation of the Log Cabin block....
Once these were done, I put them together with rectangles and squares to make 4 of these blocks:
I used the other blocks in the other steps...I finally put it all together and it is now a finished top. This is called Baked Alaska:
I also bound the last one of my finished quilts too. Table Manners is now finished completely, bound and labeled. Onto another UFO. OMG, I just remembered, I have to do my BOM by Amy. Gotta go, have to get off this computer and do some fast sewing. til next time, happy sewing!
