Thanksgiving Eve

What a good day for sewing!  I finished the "Autumn Splendor" quilt that I'd started quilting just before mom passed away.  It turned out much prettier than I expected.  The colors are gorgeous and the leaf fabric in the center of the blocks really pulls everything together.  I sewed the top a couple of years ago and put it aside for when I'd finally get a long-arm.  I had sort of forgotten what it looks like, just remembered that it wasn't one of my favorites.  I guess that's because I got tired of it long before it was finished.  In the end, it's not a bad quilt at all!

This afternoon I stitched up another jumper for Marley.  She's definitely a size 1 and very cute in her little jumper.  Jenny picked up some flannel this afternoon, so tomorrow I will make a jumper for Catherine and, if there's time before we start dinner for everyone, I will stitch up the two dresses with the fabric Jenn bought.  Then this weekend I'll make a couple more dresses for Cakibug.

Finally, I spent a little time on the computer and found a couple of interesting quilting blogs that I now follow.  These are hosted by quilters from the Quilting Board, which I've been reading for some time now.  In fact, today I earned the title "a regular here" on the board.  That means my LAQ information will appear on the QB for others to contact me for long arm quilting services.  Hopefully I pick up a little extra work through the QB.

Nope, not a bad day at all!  Happy Thanksgiving!
