What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

I decided to go ahead and put the blocks together on these 3 quilts.  I will probably add borders but will decide when I'm ready to quilt them.  Two of the patterns are from Kim Brackett's books, the 3rd is called shortcack by Cluck Cluck Sew.

All about thread. I just watched the Guilt Show from yesterday and my head is spinning!! Becky Goldsmith did a wonderful show on thread. She gave so much  information that I will watch it again and again. 

If you haven't seen it yet, please take my advice and find it. I even used the Closed Caption option to help me get all the information since my computer doesn't seem to play things loud enough for my old ears.

That really looks good with the pieced blocks  in it.

My goodness, you have been busy! All three are so bright and cheerful.  Lucky someone who gets them.

They all look great. The last one is my favorite.

One of Mr. Pirate's extended family  (for the genealogists among us, it is his first cousin twice removed) is getting married this October.  There is a bridal luncheon being held for her this coming Wednesday (like .. tomorrow!!).  

She isn't on a gift registry (yet?) and I don't know her well and I really do just hate shopping in person these days (too lazy to get dressed, drive, park, walk and walk and walk ....) so I decided that I would make her a set of 4 reversible placemats and napkins.  Honestly, it was just easier for me to do *that* than go shopping.

I finished everything over the past weekend, made the card and boxed it up.  I have absolutely no idea if she values homemade things or even likes placemats + cloth napkins, but that's what she's getting.  LOL!


Here's the front.  The body of each placemat is different.

The reverse of each placemat is a plain neutral.

And here's the card I made.

Now ... back to the quilt on the longarm, since my spool of bobbin thread has arrived!  :-)

So this is a bridal shower for Mr. Pirate's cousin's granddaughter.

Hope she's planning to have plain white china and not a pattern involving red barns, chicken coops and sunflowers.

Sorry for the rude response but one cousin's granddaughter lives in Virginia and I'll never be invited to any wedding (or shower) so I can't imagine getting lured into any such family gathering. (Another cousin's grandchildren live in the Seattle area and another cousin's family is in Florida ... you get the idea that many of us Hoosier descendants have become very widely scattered.)

You are exactly correct!

We/I know the cousin very well.  We/I even know the cousin's daughter very well, which is why we have been invited to the wedding, etc.   I know the bride-to-be from family gatherings but just not a whole lot.   I think it was very lovely of them to include us in the guest list; I was just griping about the shopping.  :-)   I enjoyed making the placemats & napkins very much.  :-)

wow...those look incredible! She'd have to be a troglodyte to not appreciate them.

I do not exactly love to shop but I have to get out of the house and see other humans or I will clobber DH. Even a friendly smile from a store's greeter is better than spending a whole day with Mr. Grumpy.

It's only a half-mile to the local Meijer's (mid-west version of a big box store) where I can purchase groceries, birthday cards, magazines, pick up Rxs or hulled sunflower seeds for the bird feeders.  I could have picked up a cool gift for a bridal shower if I had needed one. wink

That one hour excursion out of the house greatly improves my disposition for the next few days.
