Well I tried

 This project has frustrated me from the beginning. We saw a sample in a quilt shop once and my quilting buddies and I loved it. So I worked on it and then put it away. Which is a common problem for me. Especially when I don't get the project done in time for the holiday.

So this year I decided to take another look. I ended up ripping out part of it, just to make it work. I'm not totally satisfied but it will have to do.

Have you ever had a project frustrate you to the point you wish you never started it?

Happy quilting anyway :-)

Happy Thanksgiving


So once in every year we throng
Upon a day apart,
To praise the Lord with feast and song
In thankfulness of heart.
~Arthur Guiterman, The First Thanksgiving

Wishing you a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving!

Sew much fun!

 A friend of mine passed along some quilt panels. I found this Christmas apron, which I made for my granddaughter.

We had a lovely time making cookies.

Grand Kids get creative

My Grandchildren made projects for school where they created and designed something that defined the project.

Granddaughter made a Donut. She picked the word Delectable.

She presented it on stage to her whole class, Her word means delicious!

Grandson had a story parade. Retelling the story to his class,

Drive It! Fix It! Racing Ace, An Acorn Book was the book he chose to tell.

It was so fun to see what they did for this project. I'm sure Mama helped because she is very creative too.

And of course little guy isn't ready to do school projects. But he gets in on the fun too.
