Lot's of Jabbering!

Friday- hard to believe, the week has just flown by. I ended up not going to the Lone Star class on Thursday evening. Earlier in the afternoon my throat started getting really sore, so I figured I should stay home and take it easy. Doe called and she did an over the phone diagnosis - probably from my flu shot! She must be right- I was much better today! Houston is coming up next week and I don't want to take a chance and end up being sick. I did make some progress on my Lone Star though . Only three more points and then I can add the background. It goes together so nice!

This evening was my late night sewing with the Monday girls - I know it's Friday, but once a month we sew late on Fridays:-)! Lots of good snacks to eat . One of the girls brought a pumpkin bundt cake from Sam's Club that was the most amazing cake-yummy! And of course I had to bring the World Famous Ball of Cheese!!!
Somehow we get lots of jabbering in, and maybe a little quilting. Here's a quilt that Jennifer made with the Chelsea Boutique fabric by Moda using Moda's Chocolat pattern. Such a beautiful quilt! I had intentions of taking more pictures, but between the jabbering and eating I forgot!

I am slowly getting decorated for Fall. I got the Halloween quilt up that was on my "finish what you have" list. Love his little whiskers out of rick rack of course. Got this really cute pumpkin light at a gift shop close by and I will try to get a picture up the next couple of days.

It really seemed like Fall was here, but today our temperature was in the high 80's, with the forecast for the next couple of days even higher. Come on Fall I know you are out there. Thought I would give an update on my Liquid Amber watch. Slowly they turn, step by step, inch by inch ...........................
ok, I better go to bed I'm getting wacky! Later gators :-)!

Your cheese ball looks yummy...will you share the recipe. Sounds like a very fun sewing night...doesn't get much better than chatting, eating and a little sewing thrown in. Have fun in Houston. I'm really missing going this year, this is the first time in 8 years I haven't gone to Houston for Market.

Jennifer's quilt is so pretty! I love the way she switched the fabric groups. Yummy cheese ball!

mar said...

what a wonderful way to use that line, it's beautiful! Your Halloween hanging is adorable!

Cheryl said...

I've had several emails about the world famous ball of cheese so I'll post the recipe tomorrow or the next day. It's really yummy and really easy :-)!

Leanne said...

The cheese ball looks very yummy what more could a girls wish for chatting, stitching and eating.

Lisa said...

Beautiful Lone Star. I have one I started ages ago and need to get back to it. This is really lovely. I'll check back to see the finished project.

Doe said...

So, when are you taking me to Sam's Club to get a Pumpkin cake? That was delicious just like the world famous ball of cheese! Yummy!

Cheryl said...

Let me get a card and I'll pick you up!! We need to buy mass quantities of pumpkin cake :-)!

Kim said...

Glad to hear you're feeling better--well enough to get together with the gals to sew. Love your Halloween wallhanging! Oh, and your friend's quilt using the Chelsea Boutique fabric is great too. I've "collected" a bunch of that line and want to find just the right pattern. Yes, I'll look forward to the cheese ball receipe. Totally low fat and no calories, right?!

Carole said...

Glad you are feeling better! Your lonestar is coming along! Lovely quilt by Jennifer! Quilting bees are always fun even if very little quilting gets done. I tend to bring hand work with me. Otherwise, I won't get anything done if I bring my machine! Have a great day!

Cheryl said...

Like I told Carol after 5:00 the cheese ball has no calories - just the rule of the cheese ball Kim :-)!

Cheryl,
Your lone star looks beutiful. Can't wait to see the finished product. Are you almost ready thursday will be here before we know it. Can't wait.

Cheryl said...

I'm getting very excited Donna! Finally found a pair of jeans that I don't have to have hemmed!! Got the suitcases out on the extra bed.....almost here! I have one more point and I was going to call Susan and have her walk me through the background, but think I'll wait till I see her Tuesday.

I love Jennifer's quilt. I didn't buy that fabric and I have regretted it ever since.
