BUSY WEEK!

Where does the time go?  I can't believe it's Saturday already.  I finished two projects that I posted about before.  This Divine Felines wall hanging is now posted on Ebay to sell.







The table runner is now living on my coffee table. I should have stood on a chair to take the picture.


It is a good fall/halloweeny color.




Thursday we went to the Texas State Fair and it was in the upper 80s and too hot for us.  The bird show was good, but not quite as impressive as the last time we went.

Big Tex greets you when you come to the fair - yes, he talks!  Last year he burned down, so they made a new one.


I started quilting DGDs Bricks and Stepping Stones quilt and got about half of the inner part done.  I might get back to it today, but I have a special project to finish first.  I'm making a dress that I will be wearing to demonstrate quilting at a Harvest Heritage Festival in a couple weeks.

Have a nice weekend!

As always, your piecing and quilting are both wonderful! I love your new blog header too! With it, I'll get to study that Virginia Bound quilt every time I visit. Thanks for sharing Big Tex. I haven't been to the State Fair in many years! Your upcoming Festival sounds like fun too. ---"Love"

What lovely projects! I had to lol when you said the Texan greeter burnt down. How does something like that catch fire?
