Making Progress....I think.

I can't seem to keep up with how fast time is slipping away these days. Monday comes and the week starts filling up with mostly fun activities and then before I know it is Friday.
Yesterday I had a fun "Sew-Day" with Pam and Jenny.
We had a great time. Check out the terrific solid color quilt that Pam is working on, it is spectacular. And Jenny pieced a few more blocks for a long-time project. Very beautiful blocks.
I decided to start block one of a BOM called The Night Before Christmas. I have been collecting these blocks for seven months but haven't even started block One.. I spent the day making six 6 inch finshed ohio stars, one is in block one and the others are in future blocks! Didn't seem very productive but managed to get all the block piecing done this morning and applique pieces are prepared so I think I may have block one finished soon :).

Block One

I  also started machine quilting my Strawberry Basket quilt and it is taking some time.

Pin basting..not my favorite part..


Ready, Set, Go!!

I'm pleased with the results of using a paper guide for the cable but it was time consuming and removing the paper was tedious!!

I'm quilting a row of baskets each night. Tonight will be row two.
Hope I can find a good movie to watch tonight., while stitching.

I just have to share some photos of an outing Hubby and I took last saturday to Whidbey Island. It was a beautiful day. The  ferry line was long but once we
got onto the island it was soooo worth it. Here are pics of our summer saturday.

Last one on the Ferry!!! :-)

Beautiful Hollyhocks!!! Wish these beauties were in my garden. Maybe next year : )

Tall ships visiting the Coupeville harbor for the Arts and Crafts Festival.

What a beautiful view!!
Thanks for visiting and stay tuned for more progress on these projects.
