And, boy, did I need it! I actually slept until after 7:00 this morning! Gasp! I know! Haven't done that in eons.
Finished the third pumpkin block. I have to embroidery the stem caps on Blocks 2 and 3, but I can do that later. Fixing to prep the third block of All Things Christmas. (Chuckle here - Jane hates it when it say "fixing"!)
That's the problem with appliqueing. I applique in spurts because once I start, I don't want to turn on the sewing machine. Okay, tomorrow I sew!
Speaking of sewing machines -- well, sort of speaking of sewing machines, check out this new gadget that's coming soon to the Fat Quarter Shop. The SideWinder!
I usually load up about a dozen bobbins at a time, but darn it if I don't run out right in the middle of something important. That means unthreading the machine to wind bobbins. Voila! I can't wait to get one of these. Best invention since the rotary cutter!
I was invited to dinner last night with Ginger, Linda and Jane. We had a great time. We went to the Macaroni something. I forgot the name of it! LOL. But it was fabulous. I had the twice-baked lasagna. It was enough for three people, so guess what I'm having for supper tonight.
Don and I talked for an hour today. He's had the second cataract surgery, and is just amazed at how clear the world is now. He said the only problem he has is he still puts on his glasses out of habit, and can't see a thing through them. LOL. Gail is still in the cast on her arm. Did I mention they were in a car accident three or four weeks ago? She said her chest is feeling better now, too. It was so sore after the accident that she could hardly breathe. No broken ribs; just lots of bruises. There's one spot in a breast that still has a really sore spot and she feels a lump. She thinks it's just from the seat harness, but she's going to have a mammogram next week just to be safe. It's their turn for some good luck. He's carefully watching the Hurricane Dean news, although if it stays on its present course, they won't be affected by it.
The blogger picture button doesn't seem to be working today, so I'll get a picture of the pumpkin block posted another time.
Yawn! It's 2:30 in the afternoon, and I feel like I could take a nap. Hmmm, maybe I will!
