Before I start my little chat here I want to take just a minute to mention that everyone in the path of Gustav needs extra prayers and good thoughts. I can't even begin to imagine what must be going through the minds of all those people that lived through the Katrina catastrophe. Three years and here they are again...faced with another huge storm. Lots of prayers...lots of good thoughts.
I've been sewing away..The inside of the star quilt is all together...ready for the half square triangle border and final border...
This is so fun to do and I love the way it's turning out...the stars float and that makes me very happy. I'm going to get this done before I leave for Birmingham on Friday...how about that for a goal. I've been doing more Hopscotch blocks at the same time...but I'm not going to have that one done before I go.
Well, here's the little Labor Day Weekend Giveaway...3 charm packs (the 3 different colorways)...Thimbleberries newest 3's Company...the group that the newest Thimbleberries Club quilt will be done with.
So leave me a comment by midnight tomorrow night (Labor Day...my man will pick a number and I'll post the winner Tuesday morning early. Make sure you have an e-mail address included if your comment is "no reply"...otherwise I won't be able to contact you.
Off to sew a bit more before we join friends for dinner. Have a great evening!

I love how they float, this quilt seems to be going together so fast, glad you have time to sew again.
I agree, we all need to send good thoughts to all the people that will be in Gustav's path...
lets hope it weakens real quick. Lots of praying going on for the Katrina victims that may have to go thru that again, just can't imagine it at all.
