    Wow, you got a lot done! It is amazing how some projects can slip off our radar, but can be picked up again quickly.

      Hi Christina,
      Agreed! Don’t you find that sometimes you get bored with a project, or it just isn’t coming together. Then if you take a break, and start back up it all goes together quickly. I often have that happen. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Oh, wow, what a busy week! I was so saddened to hear of Nancy Zieman’s passing. That block is a beautiful tribute to her and I love the idea of an embroidered N and Z on the heart block! I also can’t stand taking my gloves off to get to my phone, so I snipped a little hole in the tip of the index finger on one of the gloves. It allows my finger to contact the touch screen, but doesn’t affect my quilting ability with the gloves. The bad part to all of that is I am too easily distracted by my phone when quilting since I don’t have to take my gloves off to deal with the notifications that I hear!

    Dominic’s stocking is so sweet, and how great to get that done before December even arrives! That snowman runner is so cute, I can’t wait to see the progress with that!!

      Hi Christine,
      What a great idea, snipping the little hole in the quilting gloves. I hate to be distracted by my phone as well . . . but it always happens. The snowman, a.k.a. cutter project, is kind of cute. It should be finished for January display, I hope. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Sounds like something a quilter needs to invent – quilting gloves with special fingertips that work on your smart phone or tablet! I enjoyed getting a peek at your projects!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Diann,
      Thanks so much! You know, we could make a million bucks with that idea – wanna go on Shark Tank?! I have no clue how to implement that, but we’re the idea people and other can be the make-it-happen peeps. Happy Thanksgiving! ~smile~ Roseanne

    I am impressed with your progress as well as your list of goals for this week. Kudos for the Nancy Z block. I think it would be sweet to add her initials. 🙂

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Cindy!
      Thank you, and I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving. I will be spending as much time with that little guy as I can. ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. Kathryn says:

    You achieved so much. Yes once those gloves go on, really its a good excuse to stay focused! I only saw Nancy once or twice but she was very good, love the idea of her initials somewhere on the block. I did smile about the putting of the stars on upside down not once but twice. I guess because we probably have all been there! Enjoy thanksgiving.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Kathryn,
      Yes, really?! Twice incorrectly was enough for me. Hello! Perhaps that wasn’t the best time to be sewing . . . HAHA. I did just walk away. Who knew that the phone would not respond to those rubber tips of the gloves?! I thought for sure they would, but a big NO. Learned something for sure! ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. Love your GK heart block and I think it is a great idea to put a NZ on it to honor Nancy. Even though I never met her I welcomed her into my house via television so often she felt like a member of the family. No working on my blocks this week as I will be traveling to GA to spend Thanksgiving with family. Will try to play catch up when I get back. Looking forward to post of your holiday time, especially with pictures of Dominick.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Peggy! Ooh, to GA for Thanksgiving. That sounds wonderful, and I’m happy that you will be surrounded with love and peeps. Just a small little NZ that later on I’ll wonder why the heck I did that! HAHA! Want to hear the coolest thing? Pat Sloan actually commented on the block on her website!! Can you believe that?! Out of her closest 100,000+ friends . . . wowee. ~smile~ Roseanne

      • You have joined the quilting star status with a comment from Pat Sloan. Lucky you. Next you will be on her Christmas card list. LOL You know I am only kidding and I am happy for you.

      • Roseanne says:

        HAHA – yup me and 100,000+ of her closest friends. Be safe in Ga, please! ~smile~ Roseanne

    I am looking forward to seeing that cute animal quilt!

  8. Vicki in MN says:

    It’s all good progress!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Vicki!
      I was wondering how you were doing this weekend. I hope you have having a lot of progress yourself. ~smile~ Roseanne
