Happy Thanksgiving to all us Canadians this weekend!!
I got together with my Friday stitch group yesterday. This is the first Friday that we have been all together (there are only 5 of us) since before the summer. So I came away with gifts from all the summer travelling of my stitch group.
It it not a great picture -- I got a piece of fabric from Dorothy from Prince Edward Island - which is actually purple not blue. Trudy brought us each a little "I love Quilting" broach from Arizona and the little Petruska dolls broach is from Russia, from Barbara - and from Dianne a Mouse pad Calendar. It was nice to finally get all together again. I have been not able to make many Fridays since I started this new job. And at the stitching group I started a DJ block.
Here are two more examples of what I did in the Curved Piecing workshop. I really like the curved log cabin blocks. They really make a nice looking quilt when it is all together.
This one is just a small four inch curved seam block. These blocks are actually much more tricky to put together than the long curves. These are done with freezer paper templates and adding a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Judy Morningstar gave us a great tip on how to cut the curved seams with a rotary cutter.
I am working tomorrow and Monday so there is no Turkey dinner in our house this weekend. I could have cooked a dinner tonight but that would have left Jim with all the clean up Sunday morning and then we are leaving to the Oregon coast on Tuesday morning. So I promised Eric (middle son who loves turkey dinners) that I would cook him a turkey when we got back from Oregon.
To everyone else --- A Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy the holiday weekend.
