Today is the first day of the Circleville Pumpkin Show. Rain is predicted, but I hope it stays nice. Tomorrow I am taking a couple of machines from the shop and doing a demo for a couple of hours. We are making postcards with of course Pumpkins on them. The shop has been buzzing with projects coming and going. Last Saturday night was our first Mystery night of the New International Mystery Series II. We visited Belgium. We dined on Belgium Endive apple salad. chicken paillard, Blegian potroast & potatoes, grilled veggie pasta. I made a carrot dish, but forgot to serve it. For dessert we had Belgian waffles and Belgian cheesecake. We served two Belgium beers (Apparently they don't do wine) and one was from the company that took over our local Busch bottling company. In November we are doing a patriotic theme and just may be eating red, white and blue food....
This week we are cutting kits and making samples for three new projects. We are cutting Carol Hopkins Aunt Sukeys socks. This is made from reproduction fabrics. We are also cutting a Patchabilities pattern, The Candy Cane wallhanging. These wallhangings go very quick and finish at 6 x 22 inches. Since these kits are tiny we include the backing and the binding too. Our big project for the week is a quilt from the Jelly Roll book. This book has so many great quilts in it that when we were looking for a new sample Sharon narrowed it done to five for me to choose from. Five quilts that she loved from one book. That is a great book!
Friday night is our free sew in and then Saturday is our Dear Jane at the shop. No, I am not caught up on all of my blocks, but I am getting very close. I think I will be caught up by the end of the year.
Have a great week!
