Time To Get Moving!

This morning I was up and went to help my neighbor. I spend a good hour and a half chatting with her before coming home.

When I got home, I knew I needed to get a few things done. I went downstairs to see if I could find an easy or quick block that I can do in Brazilian embroidery. I found the book that had some really pretty flowers in it. I decided to make a few of them for the quilt. I made an enlarged copy of a couple of the pattern. Then I cut the fabric and marked 3 blocks to work on. I need samples for the demo next week, and this way I can give the block over for Felicia's quilt.

I started one of the blocks. I was going for "fall" theme on this one. All I have to do now is get the flowers done. Then I'll start on the next one. The flowers shouldn't take too much. I hope they like it. I wasn't too thrilled with my fabric. It's too thin because one can see through it. So, I'm being careful on how I finish them on the back.

I worked on my cross stitch as well. I decided to take a photo of the back for Instagram. A lot of them were complaining about how the back looks doing the method I do or even the other method. I don't see it being a major problem. It looks okay. I could do with a better back work, but happy with the way it looks.

I was working in this area today I'll get a better photo later. I'm happy with it so far. I'm loving this and so sorry I can't get to work on it as much as I would like.

Tomorrow is QOV, and I'm thinking I won't be going. I would, but the last couple times I went, it wasn't so much fun. I won't be do as much as I thought I would. I have to work on more eagles, and right now I don't have the time. "Should I go or should I stay?"

Tonight I really want to get moving on my cross stitch.

Tonight is Halloween! Not sure if we will get any trick or treat-ers. We didn't have any last year, so it will be interesting to see if we get any coming to the house tonight!

Happy Quilting!

Dad's Surgery Day

This morning dad was due to the hospital for his knee replacement at 5:45 am. I didn't go with them this morning. But I did meet up with...
