Post Thanksgiving Projects

The only things that I dislike more than I dislike piecing are 1) waking up early 2) shopping.  Guess who was up at 3 am for my first, last, and only foray into Black Friday shopping.  We've been looking for a new TV for about a year.  Bought the grand-daddy of huge TVs for 1/2 price.  Merry Christmas & Happy Birthday Harley Dude.  Our daughter-who-wins-everything was with us which probably explains why we were in and out of Sears in 30 minutes despite the crowd.

Meanwhile, back at the sewing machine, I'm about 1/2 way finished with the mystery project.  The grand prize winner is:

One of those code things for mobile phones. Not being up with technology, I don't know what they're called but I know what I mean! They're rectangles made up of black and white patches. Ah, maybe "mobile template"? If you press settings on Blogger then the "email and mobile tab", you'll see one!

The code takes you to this blog!  
Runners up who win some batik charm squares include Ethne and Sallie who correctly guessed, (although days after Lynne). Other winners include Julie's guess of a drunken panda, Salley's Greens-eating Pterodactyl, Celeste's Crossword of Cross Words, and Amy's multiple guesses involving Atari, Wii and Micky Mouse. 
Send me an email with your address.  These are the main colors in my stash.  Let me know if you have color preferences and I'll do my best to pull together some of your favorites.

I'm a little over half-way finished with the piecing.  Unfortunately, I'm not sure that I have enough of the dark fabrics so I may have to start counting squares remaining and dip into fabrics set aside for other projects.

Well done on your Black Friday foray. The Australian equivalent is the Boxing Day sale after Christmas. I, too, prefer not to do that kind of shopping.

So a 'something' code quilt. Don't remember what it's called, but I know what you mean. So my question is, when used, where does it take you?

Thank you! I've sent you an email. What a creative idea! Congratulations to Lynne for figuring it out first! Also, congratulations on your Black Friday buy!

Ohhh I am so excited. Thankyou from the vegetarian lizard.
Your design is extremely interesting. Now that it is enlarged I love the soothing colours and the purple-y pink bits. A one of a kind design!
Well done on the telly hunting and Your turkey looks yum.

Now that you show us... those are just beginning to be used in Japan ... mostly on security passes for office buildings and fancy clubs which I have not much use for. (good thing that wasn't on my senility test for driving)
I do have a fondness for blues and greens...

What a great idea! I love this quilt. I would love to make one of these for my son with his information on it. What fun!

Cool idea! I got a little slip of paper with "my" dates on it a while back and thought, maybe I could make a quilt out of it? Now that I see yours - I think maybe I should really try it? Your quilt will be lovely !!!

Oh no! I hope you don't have to dip too deeply!

Thanks for the gift certificate - I will email you tomorrow when I'm more awake!
