Nov 8th Design Wall & NaBloPoMo

Design Wall: 
Designs to play with
On my design wall, I have the different quilt designs I might use on my dresden plates. In Houston, I bought several more designs so I am stitching them out to see which one I like best for the quilt.
New tools
i am planning ... on moving my sewing tables so that I can work on Saint Stars while the other machine quilts/embroiders the designs on Dresden plates.
John Flynn templates
outside my window...the north wind is blowing and it is warmer outside than in my house. Our furnace isn't working.
i am thinking...which design should I use for the dresden plate.
New book 
i am thankful for...all that I have been granted by the Lord.
i am wearing...sweat pants and sweatshirt - my favorite attire.
i am remembering...all the things I saw this weekend.
i am listening to...zydeco.
i am on my Saints Stars and Dresden plates today.
i am currently reading...blogs
i am hoping... the cars all start working properly. My Element wouldn't behave for DD#4 so DH & I had to rescue her again. She is w/o a ride so...

i am looking forward to...using the new ruler I bought to make interlocking borders. 
i am proud...of my daughters. DD#1 has really struggled with the Phaff machine I gave her but has not given up. She studied the problem, figured out what she needed and found help in Houston even though the Phaff salesperson didn't know what the heck he was talking about. 
one of my favorite things...getting up early and enjoying a cup of coffee in the quiet. Then sewing quietly in the studio.
i am I got non-family followers and if my blog is interesting, funny, and/or creative or none of the latter. IDK! 

accomplished today...less than I wanted but more than usual considering I had to drive to Lafayette and back and will have to do it all over later this evening.
my mood...optimistic and climbing out of that hole at a quicker rate. (2 up and only 1 down)
Lator, Gators. Have a blessed day.


  1. I like the format of your post today. Thanks for sharing the photos. I haven't seen the Trash to Treasure book before.

  2. I love all your fun new things -- especially your new tools! I'm a self-confessed gadget-a-holic! Enjoyed your list -- hope your cars are working properly! :)

  3. The book looks interesting! Pine apple blocks - well, one day I'll try... Hope the furnace is up and running. Thanks for reminding me/ us of so many things we take for granted!
