This is a nice long holiday weekend here in the States, but I haven’t done as much sewing as I might have liked. Thursday was Thanksgiving, a quiet one here, but somehow I managed not to sew much. I did blog, in case you hadn’t notice. (And I did start that giveaway. Go here to enter.)
Friday was Black Friday and included a #bfsi (Black Friday Sew-in), but that was our big family day. We all gathered to binge watch the new Netflix Gilmore Girls episodes. It was a Gilmore Girls themed day. We had given our eldest daughter a book called Eat Like a Gilmore: The Unofficial Cookbook for Fans of the Gilmore Girls for her October birthday so she made food and beverages from there. I can tell you that the apple tarts are worth the price of the book! The other recipes were pretty good too!
Four 1.5 hour episodes, discussion of said episodes and two meals pretty much ate up the day, so there was no sewing there, either.
But today (Saturday) was football watching day, which usually includes hand piecing. I spent some of the morning cutting fabric for the hand piecing session. Because this rosette is getting so large, It took me slightly longer than the length of the game (I stop stitching to look up at the plays, so I am really watching) to complete the round, but here is the rosette at this point:
All that is left to complete this Rosette 2 is a partial wreath of the purple stars with different centers. I may get to work on that some tomorrow, although I do have some sewing left to do for the church auction which is next Friday night, December 2. I guess it will depend on whether I am driving my husband to church and waiting for him there or staying home.
What have you been up to this weekend?
