My sewing table had gotten to the point once again where I could not even think of cutting fabric for the hexies nor getting the accuquilt out to cut the hexies! A little clean up had to take place. I see a few things hanging on the ruler hanging that I might have to pass on to others – I don’t use those plastic hexies and never have! why did I get them I don’t know – a few patterns hanging there to remind me they are there and I have no plans to make them right now! It will soon be time to go through some things I think. Anyhow I got the table cleaned off as much as I could and got more hexies cut and put in the storage box ready to use. (I think I actually remembered how to put the photos in to enlarge them by clicking once or twice on each photo for you all that have asked if I could do that – I think it is working)
All of the Halloween pumpkins – one large and two small got baked and cooled off Halloween night after all chance of treaters was finished. Then yesterday I got around to putting them through the food mill and grinding them down to pulp – 10 cups – 4 bags 2 cups each for Thanksgiving Pie and two bags one cup each for something like bread, muffins etc.
Work on The Final Frontier was continued and progress made – still a bit to do though. When I get to the very end of a quilt I unpin it from the back railing and pin to the batting – this keeps me from accidently quilting it to the feeder fabric – I pin the feeder fabric to the batting so it will still support my laptop as I watch Netflix while quilting.
The work with the pumpkins seem to take forever and took up time so not a lot of other work was done. Today is helping Mike with some cement work again and laundry – housework too? we will see. One diamond was appliqued in place on Williamsburg Beauty but no photo forgot! Seeing as I needed to take that quilt off of the wall so I could work on it I put the Handful of Scraps back on the wall and rearranged the hexies that were not sewn in place still. I have three more sets of hexie flowers cut out ready to baste and get to work on. All but one are going all the way across the top – I see I forgot one on the lower left. I had taken them all off the wall and then pinned differently to see what they were looking like and forgot it. I am linking up to Sew Fresh Quilts today and Jo’s Country Junction and Quilt Fabrication: MidWeek Makers and My Quilt Infatuation.
