sunday stitching

Spent last night sorting through the many scraps accumulated from the past two retreats and scrap bags from friends. I sorted by color, pulled out strings, cut squares and dropped scraps into appropriate containers to wait their turn for a quilt top.   I put the strings by the sewing machine.   I like to lay them on small tv table so I can sew a few each day.
Today, Sunday,  I am ready to sew.  First on list is Grand Illusions mystery quilt.  Second is sashing string quilt blocks.  Only have 8 to go and I can then sew rows together.

Happy Sunday Sewing!

Thanksgiving Friday

House is cleaned.   Wonderful Thanksgiving Meal has been shared.  Now to find the stuff I moved around and "out of sight!"   I sewed on my new treadle Singer sewing machine made in 1904.  It will be fun to stitch some quilt tops using this little lady.
