Sewing This Weekend So Far

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:

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?

Quilt on!

    My favorite size block is 9 inches.

    I didn’t get much sewing done on BFSI either. I was tired after preparing for and hosting Thanksgiving. We had to tidy up, had a visitor, the YM was home, you know. I worked on a bag for a swap I am in and that is looking good.

    I have decided to make the star part of my rosettes (still a theory at this point) white throughout the piece. I saw a blog post about choosing fabrics for the La Passacaglia and she did that. I thought it was a good idea. I want a light feeling since there are so many pieces. What are you doing for the star points?

      My star points are all dark purple. I didn’t want black so much and I figured that dark purple would be good with Tula Pink fabrics. In case you hadn’t noticed, I am choosing the other fabrics as I go along. Just all from Tula Pink fat quarters, not enough of anything to fussy cut.
