So what did you do for the holiday? We didn’t do much beyond going to eat with other family members who were hosting for the day. Mr. F-I has been off all week so I haven’t done much either although I did make some linen napkins and a tablecloth. I had planned to post another challenge yesterday to finish out the week’s theme but my subject was non-compliant. Maybe I can work on it tomorrow. It may be a bit controversial but hope people can appreciate the dark humor of it. Next week’s posting theme should be reviews. I’m way behind on several review projects. I’m also planning a give away of a newish pattern making book so be sure to keep an eye out for that.

Since I didn’t publish an archives entry last week, today’s post of all the entries published on this site over the past six years is a bit lengthy. Perhaps between leftovers and resting, you’ll have more time to read. See you next week.

  1. Other than a delightful Thanksgiving with friends, I’m spending the majority of the holiday weekend completing a project for the homeless. The pattern layout and construction instructions are short a few graphics, and I need to slam out a full-size prototype from the half-size mockup (note correct use of terms, thanks to recent clarification from Kathleen). We’ve got people lining up to sew them, including the Presbyterian women’s quilting group in Hastings, Nebraska (no, it’s not a quilt).

    My studio is comfortable, but I’m keeping myself lightly dressed so a tad chilly, which is a great motivator. It also reminds me to be very, very grateful.
