Everyone is making progress

Yesterday, Lin and Deb joined me to continue working on their versions of Autumn's Bounty.  Lin has her houses and over half of the turkey tracks done.  She started her baskets yesterday, so she will be ready to set them soon.  I love her rich fall color choices.
Deb is done with her houses also. 
She made one turkey track yesterday, even with jet lag.  She just returned from her sojourn in England.
I'll be calling the quilter I have selected to trust my Autumn's Bounty with today to make an appointment.  It was a hard decision to make to give up control over this one, but I know I can trust Carol.

Everyone is into houses these days.  After reading a blog yesterday morning, I found myself at Sue Spargo's website purchasing this pattern, Saffron Hill, and more of her hand-dyed woolens.
SAL participants are making progress on their blocks.  Here are Chi's latest additions.
And Rosie has 11 done.  You go, girl! 
And Anne-Mette has made her first block.
I posted the instructions for the LeMoyne Star block yesterday,and will post an alternative #13 block--Flock this am. Make sure you read the hint under Flock.  I think it would have looked better with all the fabrics being dark.  Make it in lieu of Kansas Troubles if you don't want to deal with the small HSTs.
I'll leave you with this cartoon I found out in blogland yesterday.
Hopefully, a few live outside of it as well!
