Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; And confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, confirm the work of our hands.

FNSI:October version

Been missing the Friday Night Sew-In of late and I thought I would this month too. TCC's fall show, Spoon River Anthology, opens tonight so I'll be at the theatre each night this weekend. However, since the show runs without an intermission AND since the actors never leave stage once the show starts, I have nothing to do while I'm there. Doesn't matter if a seam rips or a button pops--- I can't do a thing about it until the show is over. So I sit. So I will sew. I have been bringing the hexies with me for the last few shows and I've started putting a few rows together; even though I'm still not sure where I'm going with them. I might work on those or I might sew the binding onto Kal's quilt, which I quilted yesterday.

Before quilting- Kal's top, pilliowcase and a throw pillow case:

If I do that, it might be a quilt first around here-- I started Kal's top at the beginning of summer--if it's done before his birthday (December) I think that'll be a record for me!

October Update

Yes, I've been sewing some. Mostly hexies for that 'someday-I'll-use-'em' quilt. Put together a few more pincushions for the Etsy shop's re-opening.
Been costuming, too. The fall show is an odd kind of play that really isn't a play; it's a collection of monologues and the costuming is sparse. Really, the October news is simply this beautiful little girl:

Leia Elise, grandchild #2, born October 10, 2011!

With her big brother, Kal-El (22 mos.)

I am a blessed woman~

And,oh yeah, happy 27th anniversary to my beloved B. I'd do it again. In a heartbeat.
