The green card sampler is almost done! I wanted to start the next one just for fun. I am glad to get three out of this piece of fabric which was left from another project. I got about 20 minutes in on the green one while I waited for my dentist appointment then I stitched a couple hours when I got home. Here is where I was on Wednesday morning and where I am now.

I needed to get some serious time in on the Xmas card stitching so it was a way last evening to just relax and stitch. I think I am finally recovered from my four day weekend. Here is where I was on Tuesday with the stitching and where I am now. I feel pretty good with the amount I got done.

I was tired when I got home from work. I managed to do a load of laundry and get something to eat. I did get a bit more stitching done on the little pieces for Xmas cards.

I tried to get something accomplished every day while I was off. I was pretty tired at the end of every day so I guess I got some stuff done! Thursday I finished sewing together two pillows for my brother and SIL, made the inserts which I didn't stuff and got the box packed up for shipping. I straightened up and unwrapped the carpet squares in the garage so they could air out and tried out the new used sewing machine.

Saturday I drove to a suburb of Cleveland and bought a backup sewing machine. It was a great price. I haven't gotten any time to sew with it at all. My goal over Thanksgiving is to give it a workout.

It was 62 when I got home so I decided to try again to coil up the hose. The gray hose was not a problem, but the black hose had a mind of its own! It was finally pliable enough I was able to get it wrangled! It's the little things that can make your day! LOL!! The hose is now in the garage for winter.

I didn't have enough space in the scissor block Uncle Frank had made for me a while ago, so I asked him to make me another one and a couple more for gifts. I needed one with a couple bigger holes for my sewing scissors and for the one pair of scissors my sister gave me for my birthday that had the beautiful wooden tip protector.

The backing was pressed, batting cut, and then the layers assembled so pin basting the I Spy quilt has begun. Yeah!!!

I spent most of Friday evening and Saturday until noon cleaning, doing laundry and straightening up for the company that was coming Saturday afternoon. I had made a trip to the grocery store for deli meat for sandwiches and made a lemon ricotta blueberry cake for dessert.
