Friday's fab 4 from Feb 8. I was to tell of doneness and do more on feb. 15
Here was my fab 4 for Friday Feb. 8
1. get test pattern made up (as of today it is about 1/2 done or close to it)
Got this about 1/2 done. Still working on it.
2. decide on what pattern i will use for my guild challenge fabric
I know have about 5 patterns to choose from. I'm still thinking about this but plan to
start one after my holiday.
3.get all my stuff, including library, ready for guild meeting
Got this all done and to the meeting....heyheyhey
4. make a couple of cd's for my parents to take with us .
Got this done as well and will be taking 3, I think.
Unfortunately I'll have to wait till I'm back to do another fab 4 , but NancyRose, it is a good idea.
I just need to print it out as well so I keep it in mind as the week goes by. Thanks for the idea.
This is a friendship block that I did for Kathy S. from my guild. She wanted folksy material so these 2 prints were skaters. I took it to the last meeting and since it was Valentines day alot of people were missing. She was one of the missing so it is still with my meeting stuff. Hopefully she will be there next month.
This is a friendship block that I did for Pam H. She was at the meeting and received it. I am still a few behind on the older friendship blocks but I plan to get busy on those when I get back from my holiday.
We fly out to Tampa tomorrow morning at 8am. So being the early person my husband is....will be at the airport by 5am I'm sure. One advantage of Dave working at the airport. We can wear our winter coats and leave them in his office, work over to the airport terminal inside the building all the way. Then they are there for our return.
Dave is very worried about leaving the kids and that things could go wrong with the house.
I think they will be fine. I usually don't start worrying till we are away....like in the air. He started about 1 week ago.
This block still isn't sewn together. I don't think I'll have time before we leave and now I don't need it till Mar.12 or so. This is a 6 inch block for Sheila G.
I did her a 12 inch one by mistake. Gave it to her anyway but now I'll do a 6 inch.
Well, this is short but I guess that's it for now. I'll have more pictures and work after my holiday. Happy sewing while I'm away.

out as possible choices but I'm not sure what I want to do yet .
Likely make a wall hanging or table runner. not sure. We are to have the item done by our June potluck.
So that's one of my job's this week. Thanks for the fab4 idea NancyRose. Maybe I'll get something done.
Guess I'd better go for now.

I should have rotated this before I uploaded it from the camera, I wasn't thinking. Oh well. This is my friendship block, long overdue for Sue Kemble. "Antique Bottles" She is an original member of our guild and we did a year of 20th anniversary blocks for originating members. She is about the 3rd of 4th last one I still have to do.
This one is for Pam Hinton. She wanted an Ohio star with blue, gold and green. She is first on our new list.
So then I got really ambitious and did another one in different colours.

I had a great day on my birthday and hope to write more on my upcoming days off work. I have a rest day tomorrow after the kids and husband are off to school and work. I hope to get a little more sewing done. I have 1 more friendship block partly done and want to finish it before the meeting on thursday. I think I will be switching to days from evenings on thursday. Now I'll be able to go to my guild meeting. I do hate to miss those.
Anyway I'll try to post more tomorrow and maybe some new pictures.
Bye for now.
