A DAY OF QUILTING AND FINISHING PROJECTS

today i am working on those mug rugs from the couple posts ago...all 13 of them....

i have been waiting for a thread order before i could finish them...i have almost all quilted now except the last 3 and about half with the binding on....taking a break from them right now so i dont get stressed out...lol

this machine quilting takes a lot of thread and if you work with a lot of different colored things it takes a lot of variety of thread....been trying to make room on my thread rack for all the quilting thread with 96 pegs to put the spools on you would think i have a lot of room....but it has to hold decorative thread, regular thread and now the quilting thread and i try to keep them seperate....i guess i dont have a pic in the computer to show at this time....

i have also been sewing some small bags to use as tuck in gifts....i like to keep them on hand for graduation gifts and for other times of the year...with a little gift of money to put inside i am good to go with no stress lol....


speaking of stress i went to the grocery store out of town yesterday and was shocked at the price they had on a small container of strawberries....$5 a box....now i know they are out of season here and they are grown in florida and california and so far no bad weather to make the price go that high so i went to Walmart to see what they had....hmmmm, theirs was $4 and pennies for a container twice the size of what i was looking at in the grocery store....i think the store was trying to make more than a couple bucks on each box...needless to say no one was buying them...one lady looked at me and her mouth dropped...you could almost read what she was thinking lol....
not a lot to talk about here today....unless you want to hear about the laundry i have to do and the other fruit i am cutting up to take to my daughters tomorrow lol....more later.....
HAPPY THANKSGIVING
