Sewing right along...

I got to sew off and on all day Friday!!!! I loaded another Christmas gift quilt on the frame yesterday but did not start quilting on it yet. But it is ready to go. I can't show a photo of it until after Christmas!

During the Friday night sew-in, I worked on handsewing some binding down. I have several that need to be done by Christmas so I've got to get them done. I changed the photo to black and white, I didn't want to take a chance on someone figuring out what there gift was...

Between some Christmas sewing yesterday, I started working on Bonnie's mystery! I had picked out some fabrics for it and even cut some of it out but with all of this other that I have been trying to get done, I had not had time to sew on the mystery quilt at all. So between some of this other stuff I thought it would be the perfect time to sew the string blocks that the mystery quilt requires. So I sat my box of scraps by my machine with the papers and I would sew a block every little bit to give me a break with working with the others....I need 60 of these blocks but I only have 5 done, at least it is a start.
It was a good oppournity to use up some of my older fabrics, look at this one from 1998, I'm sure there are some in there that are older.

Check out this photo of Donkey that Richard took last night!!! Crazy cat! He lays up there waiting for someone to come down the hallway and then he swats them or jumps on them!!! I think he is awake in this photo but he usually sleeps like that!!!
Got to get back to sewing!!!! And get ready for some snow!!!!!!

Donkey is so funny! My kitten is starting to do that too, they are so much fun.

You are getting a lot of sewing done. YAY!! I like your Mystery blocks. How are you doing on your Threadhead quilt along? I really want to do that one but I just haven't had the time.

Your blocks look great!! You know what? I didnt even know that is a black and white photo of your quilt binding!! I just thought it was a white quilt with a grey binding!!

I LOVE Donkey!!
