Block ~11

I think all of my sewing yesterday just tuckered me out! I haven't really accomplished anything today. I piddled around the house all day, sat on the couch and stared out the window watching the horses. I was lazy and just fixed deer burgers for dinner. Around 3:30pm I decided to get off my rump and sew. I finally got the August block finished. Now I only have ONE more block to go and then I have to add borders to all 12 blocks.

This is probably the only block that I will do today. Chantal and I have to take mom's car down tonight and leave it for her. She will be coming home tomorrow, sometime. I talked to her earlier and she said she wasn't sure what time they would dock. For those of you that are new to reading my blog, my mom is a cook on a tugboat. She is on the boat 28 days at a time and then home for 28 days. They push coal, gasoline, and other stuff up and down the riverways.

I have my tops that I have finished packed and ready to take to show her when she gets home. Then I guess I will let her rest up for a few days and then we will start making our list for Thanksgiving dinner.

That block is beautiful. You really do very nice work.

How cool that your Mom does that. I know you must miss her, but .. how cool is that? I would love spending so much time on the water. Well, I think I would.... but you never know, til you're there.

Have a great you've done a lot of piecing this

The work on this block looks great. It appears to have very sharp points in all the right locations.

I know you will be glad to see your Mom. Just another thing to be thankful for...right?

Your block looks great!! Then again they always do. I can't wait to hear about all the things you and your mom do while she's here.

The fabric in this block is great. I am not surprised that you were a little lazy after yesterdays sewing.
