Messy Studio, Full Life

This week filled up with lots of doing, but not much quilting. Here are just a few things I did get to this week.

First, I had to tackle my messing sewing room since I couldn’t get to the cutting mat to continue with Bat Moon Rising!

I did get the mat cleared off, but not the rest of the counter top to the right of the mat.

Anyway, that gave me room enough to cut out more Bat Moon Rising pieces.

I only got a little bit of piecing completed.

Sunday was a day spent with family. Birthday celebration and a Train Show. Our granddaughter thought the Hodges Hand Cars was the best part of the Train Show. Here she is riding a Hand Car.

You turn that wheel round and round to go around the track. She thought it was great fun. Husband thought it was great exercise and a fun way for kiddos to run off some of their energy! LOL

Our grandson, not yet big enough for the Hand Car, sure enjoyed watching the bigger kids!

He stood there going “whoo whoo!” He loves anything with wheels and loves to imitate the sounds too.

Woot! I finished stitching Dropcloth Sampler last night.

I’ll figure out how to frame it, most likely an embroidery hoop, after Thanksgiving. I’ll try to remember to keep an eye out for a hoop while shopping this weekend.

Next up – Thanksgiving baking! Remember those Pumpkin Dinner Rolls I posted last Tuesday? I’m making them today, and putting together the dressing. The turkey is defrosting in the fridge.

I hope you are all enjoying gearing up for the Holidays!

    OMG!! That little guy watching the train go around is just SOOOOO sweet. I just want to scoop him up and have him tell me about the choo-choo. That hand car does look like excellent exercise and great fun, too. It looks like your grandson was all decked out for the event, with his engineer bibs and scarf. C.u.t.e. No one would ever know that your whole table isn’t cleared off by the cutting mat. The picture left out all the mess – and Bat Moon Rising is so much fun. Thank you for linking up today. Enjoy those littles and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. ~smile~ Roseanne

    What fun to take your grands to an event that they enjoyed so much – your photos of them are so cute! I love the Drop Cloth sampler – it turned out great. Happy Thanksgiving!
