Block #3

Here is block #3 from the Be Attitudes Quilt. I am behind and have to catch up. This block was very appropriate because I was losing my patience as I sewed and the fabric on the letters kept fraying. For me, the blanket stitch is a very slow process. Accuracy is hard as you approach turns. I guess by the time I finish these blocks, I should have a pretty good handle on the blanket stitch. (I hope!)
The baby quilt was delivered today so that is one more project out of the way. I still have not decided on what to make for the next baby shower in October. The father of the baby had called my daughter and asked about my making a quilt for his future son. She told him that she thought I was intending on making one for the shower. I guess I cannot get out of this one. I just need ideas for a sports theme that is still childish. I need inspiration my fellow bloggers!

Tomorrow is my library group so I will work there on their block of the month. Hope to have it finished and will post it.

We did attend a Labor Day barbecue at the home of one of my son's friends. Lots of food and a DJ. At one point, the DJ said he hoped everyone was having fun because the party was not over until 4 am . Could you imagine? I would just be turning over in my bed for a few more hours of sleep at 4 am and would be very annoyed to hear music until that time. Oh well, I am glad we do not live near the party. It was nice and quiet when I fell asleep at 10:30.

Between Bonnie Hunter and Judy Laquidara, there has been a mystery quilt and a block of the month. I want to do it all, but can not seem to fit it in with my other projects. There are bloggers who have participated. Check out Bonnie's and Judy's sites to see those who posted their work.

I know what you mean when you say you want to do it all! Alas, we are only human! lol I have so many things saved to my "want to do" file that I had to get a second file folder! :D
