Wild and Wonderful week

It's been a bit of a whirlwind week here! We are two men down in our business (one quit, and one was injured and had surgery on his hand on Wednesday) So I've been trying to get a little sewing done between night and morning! I'm completely exhausted when I get home so I've not much to show. 



 I got this together last weekend. Next Monday Cheri will share the applique and border treatment ideas. Many of you are sewing along and will no doubt recognize I messed up a couple of blocks.


Gay posted the next set of 1857 blocks. You can get them HERE. My blocks are not sewn, only prepped.


I'm working on a holiday quilt for a designer. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to share, but I thought I could give a sneak peak. A lot is being done by hand, some by machine and a little embroidery. 

Here's my instagram feed this week. 

Our church and town lost a dear man this week very suddenly. He was 52.  
Let your loved ones know that you love them! This life is fleeting.


Love to you all!

  3. The little stockings look almost like they were done needle punch. For all that is going on with your family business, you are still getting something done sewing wise.

  5. I echo the feelings of the others--I think you have accomplished a lot, and I don't know how you do it!
    I'm liking what I see so far on the Christmas quilt.

    We lost the French teacher of our son this week too. She was 59.
    I was shocked and sad by this death. You're right Lori, our family and friends are very, very precious and we must tell it to them.

  7. Sad when we lose anyone, let alone someone so young. Love the sneak peak.....and enjoy your company and run. Schedule says 6 but since you did 7 last weekend, may as well do 7 or 8. I have short mileage tomorrow as doing a marathon relay on sunday and my legg is 6 miles.

  14. Sorry to hear about your friend and coworkers, sometimes things come all at once, so it is good that you take a little time to relax and enjoy your sewing. Love the cross block, those look like fun blocks to do.
