A little sewing goin' on

Wow, finally got to sit down at the machine this morning and work on a quilt that has a deadline.
I need to have this completed by Nov. 9, and I knew I had to get busy to have it done in time!
No sweat, right??
This is just a little 'teaser' photo, I'll post a picture of the entire quilt when it's finished!

My weekend at the Novi Sewing Expo was well-spent. I took two classes with Pati Palmer on garment fitting, another seminar on sewing pants, and enjoyed Sandra Betzina's trunk show of
garments and listened to her tips and tricks presentation. Meeting some of my fellow PatternReview members (Hi Melody!) was a bonus to the weekend! I'm happy to say that tho I did help the local economy some by shopping the vendors, I only brought home one cut of fabric! That must be a record for me, but then again, I have enough in my stash to sew for a year at least. Absolutely nothing tempted me in the quilting dept, I really didn't see anything new or innovative there. Looking forward to next year!

Summer's over!

I can't believe that this is the first day of Autumn. Where did the summer go to? It seemed to scream by so fast, and I like the summer to be hot and sunny which didn't seem to happen much here in mid-Michigan.
I have been out on the golf course a little more this summer tho, and my tennis game is getting better and better! Maybe that's why I don't have any finished projects to talk about. I 've been knitting away on my CP Hoodie, the back and both fronts are done, and I'm knitting the sleeves two at the same time. I'm planning on wearing this sweater this fall!
The Novi Sewing Expo is fast approaching, too. Friday I'll be going with my quilting friends, about 6 or 7 of us, and we'll be having our parking lot tailgate for the 3rd year in a row. Then on
Saturday I have 3 garment sewing classes scheduled, 2 of them with Patti Palmer, and I'm really excited for that. My niece's wedding shower is on Sunday....and there is another weekend gone!! But I know I'll come home from the Expo motivated and inspired.

The American Cancer Society:

In October, my husband and I will be joining our two daughters in the Making Strides cancer walk in Chicago, IL. My girls have been walking for a couple of years now, and we are looking forward to joining them in memory of my mother-in-law Martha Pozolo, who passed away at the young age of 59. If you are even a little bit interested in supporting this worthwhile cause, please click the link below and take a look at my personal page:
