Spinner Block - Layer Cake Quilt along.

I spent most of Friday sewing.  I got quite  a lot done to.  Finished my first spinner block for the Layer Cake Quilt Along on Moose on the Porch quilt along.  I think it came out pretty nice and was fairly easy to accomplish. 

Here is the first block.  Looking forward to the next one.

Adding links and buttons!!! I think I got it!!

Well, finally, I think I have it down pat now.  Thanks to Moose on the Porch, he gave a very good tutorial in adding his quilt along button and pic and it worked.  I also added the Rusty Thimble's picture and give away.


Now I am off to sew, I  have spent hours doing my pictures, uploads, blogs, flickers and shutterfly's this morning and the sun is high in the sky.  Great day outside and I also need to rake leaves Ugh!

Pot holders for Christmas gifts

Here are a couple of pot holders made using Oh! Fransson's method.  I have tried a bunch of patterns and this one is by far the easiest.  Came out beautiful and I will defintely being making more.  I had planned on giving a pot holder and two tea towels I have made.  Nice gift for the girls at work. 
I would love to add a link to Fransson's site but am not good enough at here is her address.

Hopefully you can find the site and try the tutorial.

Halloween 2010

We had a great time.  This year with Halloween being on Sunday we went out early and were home just as it got dark.  Treating during the day is not as much fun as at night, but the kids are still little and it's not easy to scare them after dark, they tend to get crying and that's no fun.  Maybe next year we can go at night!! and say BOO!

I put this book together on Shutterfly!  These are great books and make a great gift.
