We had sew night again,

Look at Angela's Thanksgiving quilt. What a fun quilt. The turkeys have loose legs and there are other 3D elements.  I have not seen this pattern before.  She said she bought the kit with the pattern but she had enough in scraps to cut out a second smaller quilt.  Good deal.
Jerilu is so awesome.  Remember last week she was cutting out the squares for this quilt.  It is done.  This quilt is an advent calendar. She said it was so much fun to do.  It is certainly fun to look at.  

Helen made this cute hat for a grandbaby.  She is such a good sport she even modeled it. 

Loretta made this almost all from scralps.  It was a class at Quilt Walk.  She used her embroiderer machine for the flowers.

She also made these baby boots and shoes. 

More projects from her embroidery machine.  . 
Mary Lou put this quilt together from blocks Helen gave her for her birthday.  

Here is another view of Jerilu's advent calendar quilt.  

We don't usually meet the 3rd Wednesday but with Thanksgiving next week we decided to meet.  I was not able to stay and sew, because I had another meeting,  but could not resist going to take some pictures.

Yay another sew night

Karen has made aprons for all the girls in her family.

All the little girls in LaVees family are getting these sooo cute P.J.s.  The blue is really pretty, it is getting harder and harder to find trico for these projects anymore.

 She also crocheted this bracelet.

And sewed on the binding for this quilt.  Busy girl.

Helen is making this stocking cap for a grandbaby.

These are so cute they are part of a set of six that Donna is doing. 
Becky is making a black and orange quilt for a friend who is a big fan of Oregon State.  (I hope I got the right Oregon College with the black and orange)

Jerilu cut out fabric for this advent quilt.  The pattern looks hard but she said it is fairly easy.  It almost made me want to try it.  Since I have the fatquarter shoppe christmas BOM from last year only barely started, I am going to hold myself back.

Marylou is doing another tube quilt.  I really like how fresh blue and yellow are together.

this is so cute but sorry I can't remember what craft she said this is.  She can do almost anything. 

Lana had found this quilted  apron to show us. 
It was a good night to get out and visit.

We had our annual craft fair on Saturday.

The place was jam packed.  It had been moved to a smaller venue (the social hall) this year as the courthouse staff have taken up residence in the fair building while the courthouse is recieving its makeover.
I didn't take many pictures but I did get a shot of Holly's booth it was very cute.  She even hung the quilt I made one of her girls for a back drop. 

She had the most awesome books for sale and kits to make them yourself. 

This train is all hand crocheted  and so are the ornaments on the tree.  Elsie Hatch made these.  This train was already sold but they let me take the picture anyway. 

It was fun but I was glad to get home.

Fa La La La La

Jerilu brought these pillows she has been making to sew night.  Look at the fabric in these, especially the red.  I asked how she cut the letters and she said she free hands them.  I was trying to figure out how I could cut them with the cricut, me free handing with sissors would not be good.

Shannon is making a tee shirt quilt.  Aren't these great tee shirts.  I can't wait to see this one done. 

Love the In and Out Burger front and the red ones. 

Most of us were just glad to get back to sew night and had hand work so we could visit.

What was I thinking?

Actually I love this boot pattern but get a look at some of the prints I used in the boots.  Oh my!  They must have all been in my, at the time, very meager stash.  These blocks are from at least 10 years ago.  Yep, I ran across them when I was playing with my fabric the other day.

I still have a yard or so of this yellow and green. 

I will confess to being the worst procrastinator.  I made 19 blocks.  One more block and the quilt would be ready to go.  At this point I am going to rethink it, and use 16 blocks.  I thought at one time I might do the broomstick cowboy poem on the 20th block but the boys have grown and times has changed. 
Do you have blocks that you look at and think, oh my, what was I thinking? 
Have a good weekend all.

This has to be my favorite fat quarter bundle.

I have not seen it before. Well except that I bouught it and it is in my stash.   I love blue and white and it has such a vintage feel to it. 

I love how they wrapped it up using the lights on one side and the darks on the other.  I couldn't bring myself to open it because it looks so good.

I also found these awesome bali pops, I probably should have gotten two the same color but it was too much fun to buy pink lemonade and cotton candy.  Now what am I going to do with these.  I am a newby to batiks.

Highlights from my stash. Found one Ruby

Ruby fabric is the new bliss.  What am I going to do with this fabric?  It is almost to good to cut into.  I will have to wait until the right project comes along.  Do you think it will speak to me "use the Ruby."

And a fat quarter bundle of Sew Cherry.  What a great line.  So far I have not ever used any fat quarter bundles.  I have always used yardage and guess I will just keep these for a while.

Just think of the possibilities.

This piece is my very favorite of this line.
