The following is an edited/revamped version of the entry I wrote on the 11th and never published due to lack of pictures. The sun never did come out today (or yesterday or the day before that) but I did my best. The pics aren't too awful. The text in italics is for clarity, as it is no longer the 11th.
"On Monday (that would be October 9th) I started the Homespun Elegance August Blanket for Move It Out Monday. In the wee hours this morning (that would be October 11th) I finished it. I'm amazed at how quickly these little blankets stitch up! (While snapping the following photo I discovered that I didn't give the bird an eye. Clearly an error. And I didn't sew on the charm. So technically this isn't finished. Ack!)
I still need to do the finishing. Actually I still need to do the finishing for the July blanket, too. Would you believe I'm still trying to find the top of the table in my office so I can set up the sewing machine? That's the story I'm going to stick to. (I still haven't seen the top of the table...)
I finished Meri's Queen Bee design on Sunday. (That would be October 8th.) I love the way it turned out! (Good grief, that yellow blotch behind the fabric is a post-it note. Oops!)
I started a little gift for a friend but I don't think I'll post too much about it. I don't know if she reads my blog. No sense taking any chances and ruining a surprise! (After starting said little gift I've changed my mind and decided to go with something else. Not sure yet what I'll do with this project.)
It looks like I will be picking up Terre de France tomorrow. Jeanne is finishing up the framing. I can't wait to see what it looks like! (I did get TdF from Jeanne and it looks great! I had it less than 24 hours, dropping it off at Mom & Me last Friday. I'll get to see it again on Saturday, hanging in the show.)"
That catches things up to this past weekend when I attended the retreat in Mattoon. Ah yes, the retreat! I'll post my project pictures tomorrow before I leave for the show. Promise!
