24 quilters, machines fabric, notions, and other needful things filled the classroom to capacity and we sewed the last Saturday before Thanksgiving 2015 away!
When I asked the ladies what they would be doing one week from now, they exclaimed “WORKING ON ALLIETARE!!”
Yes, we are that close! Clue #1 goes live in FIVE days. Oh boy!
And while there was much mystery talk and speculation, our energy turned to the project at hand:
Texas Tumbleweed from MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders!
We started out with 4 patch centers for alternate blocks, moved on to mirror image stitch and flip corners ((Oh, that mirror image thing gets people confused at times!)) and were stitching together our alternate blocks by lunch time!
Corner squares marked, in place and ready to stitch!
Pressing matters at the ironing stations!
Stitching away on our day to play!
After a lunch break and some Show and Share we got down to the nitty gritty, pulled out our color and let them play in the main blocks!
Now we’re cooking!
This is when things get fun!
What an awesome day, ladies!
We had a ball!

I am also happy to say that it felt so good to end my 2015 travel schedule on such a high note with this wonderful group of ladies not-too-far up the road from me.
It was a quick drive home, and I settled right in to doing some more quilting on our Mystery quilt. Oh, you are going to love this one, and I’m not saying this to bait you. I’m really excited about it and ready to launch this party next FRIDAY!
On deck today: Writing clues! And preparing binding. And generally getting things ready to leave for the cabin tomorrow evening after picking my dad up at the airport. And oh, yes. There is a crown replacement happening, or beginning – tomorrow as well.
And all of the Thanksgiving grocery shopping happens between the dentist and the airport!
No…it’s still a whirlwind…but I’m seeing a light at the end of the tunnel!
Have a great Sunday, everyone!
