6 days to Go

OK, let me hear a big WAHOO!!!  I have finished machine sewing the binding on Izzy's quilt.  Today I will hand sew the binding down while watching children's television.  I love to hand sew because it is so relaxing for me.  If I'm doing charity quilts or quilts for nieces or nephews, I will machine sew the binding.   But for my immediate family, I hand sew the binding.  Makes me feel like there's a little extra love put in.

So, what to do next?   I took stock of my Halloween fabrics this morning, and have decided that as a surprise for my family, I will make Trick-Or-Treat bags for all of us to use at Disney.  I've found a couple of free patterns on the "Net", and today will decide which one to use and print it out.  Hoping to "assembly line" them over the weekend.

Yesteday, after much frustration and cussing at my printer, (we have a hate/hate relationship), and with help from daughter Mary, we managed to get the envelopes printed for our Mousekeeping tips.  I designed my own envelopes for all of us to use.  I made a list of what we need to buy this weekend.  So, I'm feeling like I am finally accomplishing something.  Hopefully pictures of the quilt and the bags posting on Monday.  Have a great weekend.

We'll be there for almost 7 days. We arrive shortly after lunch on Thursday and leave before dinner on the following Wednesday.
