Friday Feast, on Saturday

Appetizer: What is a word that your framily uses that would not be considered common? My sister in law goes by YaYa (which means Grandmother in Greek) She is a first time Grandmother. Two of my kids had names for their blankets. Holly's was Bee and Kyles was "Gee" the g being pronounced like "goat". Soup: What theme of calandar do you have on your wall this year: Quilting at home and Harry Potter at work. Salad: Name 3 people you speak with on a daily basis. Amy, Mom and all of my children. Main Course: If you could put a new tatoo on someone you know who would it be and what would the tatoo be of and where would you put it on them? There is one girl at work that I would tatoo "WHINER" on her forehead. She is the most irritating person I have ever known and now that she is pregnant she does nothing but complain and goes on and on and on....like she is the only woman in the world who has ever had a baby! My Gosh...I've had 4 and two of them I went completely natural with! Desert: What is the last beverage you drank out of a bottle? I honestly don't know. I'd say beer, but I pour that in a glass with tomato juice, so that's not it.

Halloween bag complete

Hello again.
As you can see by the previous pictures one Halloween bag was completed. Unfortunately, due to family circumstances, I was unable to have anything else ready for the Sept 1 dead line to teach classes in October. This has lead to some mistrust from the district coordinator, not that I blame her. I asked her last night at the teachers meeting what I should work on for the November and December classes and she declined to assign me anything, stating, very diplomatically, that she didn't know how well the classes were going to go and that we should just wait and see. I have decided to stitch up some fall and Christmas shirts on waste canvas as she did mention that they are trying to push that in the stores. I think people will be more receptive to clothing decoration anyway in a sewing store. So I need to get out and buy some sweatshirts. I've also thought of getting a few button down the front denim shirts to stitch as well. I really want to prove myself to this lady as I am the one, through no fault of my own, who has caused this mistrust and false perception of myself.

Finished the Hancock Project.

Well here are the pics of the finished bibs, towels and bookmarks. I'm happy to have them done. Now I have to start on the waste canvas projects and the bread cloths. The waste canvas is going to be on bags...they'll be cute. I've never done waste canvas...so wish me luck!
