Last night, I went over to the church and sewed and hung out with my friends. I took along my OBW to work on and got alot farther along on sewing all the blocks. I think I might have twenty blocks left to sew now. I'll be ready for next weekend by this afternoon, I hope.... It was fun to see all my friends and see what they were working on. I try to take something with me that's easy to sew or work on because I just can't concentrate and have fun visiting at the same time. These OBW blocks were just the trick....I'll lay this out on my design wall later for you to have a sneak peek but I won't be putting these together until next weekend when we all get together and play with the layout of the blocks...
Yesterday was also the last day of the Pick tour but you still have time to enter the giveaways on some of the blogs participating in this book review/drawing. Go here (Sue's blog) and you will see a list of all the blogs you can still enter...So far, I haven't won any of the drawings but I've still got my fingers crossed. Believe me, it's been really hard to do things with them crossed too! Anyway, hurry over to the other blogs and comment or follow them to win this great book. Good luck to you....
Before you go though, comment on my blog a few posts back,( here's a link to get you there quicker) I'm having a drawing for my followers. Today is the last day to sign up. I was going to show you what you would win but everyone seems to like a surprise so I'll just keep that to myself until the drawing. I'll show you what you win before I package it up and mail it off. Now, go comment on my blog to win some surprises. Be sure and let me know where you live, I'm just interested to see where everybody is from, no big deal...just curious.
I don't have the grandbaby today but my DH is off today. We are going to go do a little shopping then I'll be back to work on several items this afternoon. I want to finish my OBW blocks, I have some naked snowmen to dress (very sexy, I'll show you those later too!) and I have a very cute stuffed doll to make for two wonderful granddaughters. Beth over at Love Laugh Quilt posted a tutorial of a rag doll she made that I just can't resist making. She just keeps calling my name. I saw her yesterday and dreamed about her last night. Since little Carmen isn't with me today, I'll have time to go to my sewing room and pick some cute fabrics for her a sweet dolly. I can't make just one as I have two sweet granddaughters. Alayna is six , so her dolly will need to be a little bit more sophisticated, I'll have to really work on hers. And, I love dolls too, so I'll be making a third one for me! Oh well, I'm just a big kid at heart. I have big plans for today so I have to get busy, have a good day sewing and being with family. Come back and see what I've done later and I'll be drawing tomorrow morning for my winner so stay tuned for that. Happy Labor Day!
