I finally cut the new Gratitude & Preservation fabrics yesterday.

I cut lots of Mini Dresden petals for my next quilt.

 Betsy is a lot of help.

She keeps the string of petals wrinkle free until I can get to them.

Today I’m trimming and pressing

but I could use some elves to help me out!

Do you know of any?

What have you been doing this Labor Day weekend?

The carnival is in town so we’ve been eating well!

And of course as always, David shot the star out so we have a new addition to our family.

And as always, the prizes are huge!

This guy takes up my entire 4′ drafting table!

Everyone needs a 4′ sea turtle, right?

It won’t be here long.

I mentioned Clare giving maybe giving it to one of her little babysitting friends that’s turning 3 this week and although she already bought her a very cool gift, she’s excited that she’ll be the hit of the party when she shows up with the huge turtle!

She and her big sister will be able to sit on this guy at the same time and still have turtle left over!

[and I’m excited too ;)]

Just keep sewing…
