Tumbler flag.....

I know I promised pictures of the little stockings, but I forgot to get them down today and snap some pics ~ sorry.  Will try for tomorrow, okay?  In the meantime, this is a project we started a week ago today ~ thanks to a note I got from Sharon about this idea.  Tracey used the Accuquilt to die cut the tumblers with some red, white and blues she picked out.  She took it home that night and brought the top back the next day!  Sew....Saturday Jan layered it up (right sides together) flipped it out and made some tabs.  I picked it up then and quilted it and sewed the tabs on.  It's our reminder to all of you in the U.S. about Veterans' Day coming up soon, and also, to be sure to vote next week!  We are working on pre-cut tumbler kits....watch for those next week.  Isn't it cool?  And we FINISHED something!!

Today was fun!  Harriet and I played with another *work in progress* we've got going.  It's a scrappy runner with a holly applique at both ends.  I've just about got the middle done and now we've got the applique ready to put down.  Not sure if Alicia and I will get to that tomorrow.  The Just Takes 2 group will be there in the morning and that's always lots of fun.  Freight?  Well, new batiks galore, new cats, and some pizza and cupcakes (sounds like a tummy ache, doesn't it?)  Did I tell you the new Quilts and More magazine is here too?  It's always a good one for projects, and it doesn't disappoint this time either.

Hope your weekend is a good one.  Hey, we get an extra hour too ~ don't forget to *fall back* Sunday night.  I think I am going to use that extra hour to sew....how about you?
