Arrivial and finishes

Well it seams that it was a long wait for this little guy to show up in the mail...... but long weekends to tend to cause some delays......... but some things are just worth the wait

don't you think sew too....
Thanks Selina  for such a cute fall themed post card, we were part of Sheila Fall Post Card Swap. She even found a little envelope to tuck it into to keep it safe from the weather. It will be up with my fall decorations.
Sheila is going to do a Christmas themed post card swap. Sew if you are sew inclined pop on over and sign up.

As for some finishes this week. We finished up Painted Prairie the group project that we were working on for Culture Days. It finished up at 50 x 100 inches. It was interesting learning that we could quilt on painted fabrics and that many talents can create a beautiful work of art. It will be displayed at the performance that the Arts Council is hosting this week and then it will hang in the seniors lodge that is attached to the hospital here in town.
My other finish kind of surprised me....... On Monday evening I pin basted one of my scrappy quilts and then Wednesday I started to quilt it and Friday morning I finished the binding sew now the only thing left is a label. I thought it would take a week to quilt but it seams that I was in the groove to quilt. It helps when your machine is happy too.

The next project on the sewing machine will be to work on my Wicked project and post. My turn will be October 29 but the hop starts this week .... stay tuned to the line up and see what wickedness is going on out there in Blog land.
 Sew now that takes us to Saturday night ... watching the ball game and knitting a little
