Yeah its the weekend for me ;)

I am so happy I have my 12 four patch blocks done ... They are the ones that I am making for Lisa.. they are completed and now all I have to do is make my siggy block to send along.. I hope some of you other wonderful women have chosen to help Jane with her endeavors to make quilts for Lisa :) I know it only took me one 30-45 min trip to the Hobby Lobby after work one nite.. and a couple of hours this evening to do these lovingly donated blocks for Lisa... so what are you waiting for??? One block or a dozen any will help ;) Jane has also said she could use other donations like batting :) Maybe some backing fabric also :)
Tomorrow is a Dr day but when I get home I am going to work on my Halloween blocks a tad :)
APP has to start working on the blocks.. I am in three block swaps and my tote swap and two Annie Swaps.... So the APP is busy busy busy sewing away!! Then really really soon... we will be doing another challenge on Pins.
I will be hosting the next one also.. Looking forward to finding something fun for all of us to do :)
Did I also mention I have been working on Bubba's and Big Daddy O's Christmas presents. I am hand stitching some of the blocks.. There are 12 hand stitched blocks per quilt. I have 6 of the 24 completed. Pretty good for only working on them a week or so during my down time at work :) Which is not often... Sunday is my slowest day.. but for some reason today was busy busy busy!
I am hoping to have all the hand stitched blocks done by the first of Nov... because I will probably need a couple of months to get all the quilt blocks put together and quilted. I have 3 blocks to finish hand stitching for Step Monsters Quilt... Yeah.... I have promised my self I will do 6 of the guys and one of Step Monsters until all blocks are completed. Step Monsters blocks are the most fun :) I will try and post a photo of some of them soon :) I am having a really fun relaxing time hand sewing these blocks ;) I just hope my family loves them as much as I have loved making them :)

Lots of stuff going on at your house. I do most of my hand stitching at work too. Less distractions there.

Just stopping by to say hello and see what you are up to. I miss our chats. I'm still having some issues with blogger, but eventually it will all work out.
Wishing you a wonderful week. Gizy's going to the Vet tomorrow morning to get a chest X-ray to see about his heart to make sure he doesn't have congestive heart failure...Pekingese are prone to that and he's pushing 13, so the Vet said it would be wise to do that.
Love and hugs to Miss Pitty :-)
