Got two more blocks done and a few more cut and ready to sew.  First the paper-pieced block.  It's really different and the picture doesn't do it justice!
Now the hand pieced diamond.  The smallest pieces are
 3/4" x 5/16" finished.  The diamond is 4" x 7 3/4" finished.  I thought it would be hard but it's not. 

So much fun!!!
Unfortunately the holidays will interfer with my sewing but not too much.  I have a lot of greens but I can already see I need a lot more!  Now I have to clean and  get ready for Thanksgiving!

I've been busy since my last post!  I finished my paper pieced owl wall hanging.

I created this snowman table runner/wall hanging for the quilt retreat and made a quilt top at the retreat! 

I also learned how to make these napkins at the retreat so now I have new ones for Christmas.  I just need one more color for another set so that I'll have 12.

Now I've started a paper pieced quilt in greens for my daughter.
These are the first two blocks.

And I've also started a hand pieced Quilted Diamonds quilt.  This is the first block.  Both quilts are really fun!

I've also read several books.  I listened to Another Man's Moccasins and The Kitchen House and I just finished Nora Robert's New York to Dallas.  I'm now reading Laura Child's Skeleton Letters.
Now I'm off to do my weekly shopping so I can get back to quilting!
