Busy week!

I finished my Heartwarming jacket!!! It came out a little big, but there will be plenty of room for bulky sweaters, sweatshirts underneath. I'm happy with it. Don't mind my jammies, lol

I also made 6 blocks for the Block Lotto (see sidebar link). I did this for a long time in the past, and now I am happy to be back. It is a fun swap and you get tons of ideas for new blocks. These are called woven bars.

We took a 5 mile walk at Biltmore on Sunday. It was surprisingly not too crowded. Folks must be waiting for the leaves to get more colorful. I was walking along and Dave told me to turn around, and took a picture. Then he posted it on Facebook with the caption...Which one is the smart ass?...I didn't notice the donkeys in the background. He's soo funny. Ha.  Ha.

It was a beautiful day though. Look at that sky!! Totally Carolina blue.

Saw an article about the new fashions (yeah, I look, but I don't wear, lol. ) They said it was a good year to mix prints. Thought it looked somewhat familiar for some reason.

Then I looked through some of my old pictures and behold!!! I had the same outfit as a girl, though I chose shorts instead of a skirt. I was so ahead of my time in the fashion sense, lol.

You can see the car that would become mine, in 4 more years, in the background. I worked for 3 weeks at Manners Big Boy to save 50.00 to buy that car from my sister. And she bought it new in the year the picture was taken!!

This week I want to finish sewing the quilted fabric panels to make Kenzie (the sweetie in the picture at the top with me) a jacket. I need to piece a quilt top for a baby shower. And I have 2  tops to quilt for a paying customer. So I will be busy.

Beautiful jacket - and I really love the way you did the blocks on it. I have never done that before but hope to try soon!

Love the pictures. The jacket looks great! I bought a car from my sister, too, about 3 years old, for $400. LOL Big sisters are useful, aren't they?
