I love this time of the year!

Soon it will be officially autumn. I adore this time of year! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. October is my birthday month. November has Thanksgiving and my oldest and youngest sons' birthdays. December is not only Santa Claus time, but also my husband's birthday. What a wonderful, busy time of year!
I finished September's block of the month for the "My Favorite Things" block:
I worked on a lot of renfaire sewing today too. I didn't take photos yet. Perhaps when I am done I will model what I have done!
That's it for today! Until next time, happy sewing y'all!

More empty plates

My mind has been preoccupied with the quilting of my Froo-Froo quilt, otherwise known as "My Tweets". I actually have the backing sewn together now and the top and batting are centered and ready for basting.
I can't tell you how nervous I am about quilting this beauty. I have put years of work into it and now the final step is there in front of me. Will I muck it up or do it justice? Only time will tell. Until next time, Happy Sewing Y'all!

Disappearing Plates

Oh bad quilter, bad bad bad. I didn't even touch the Dresden Plate blocks this past week. I am just stuck on how to proceed. I tend to go in streaks with machine sewing. Since I want to try to machine sew the Dresden blocks, I need to be in the right mood to sit at the machine. Maybe next weekend.
I am still getting my fabric therapy though. I finished block six of the Folk Art quilt:
I am working on block seven. This is the block maker's drawing:
Instead of making those tiny yellow petals in the middle, I decided to try reverse appliqué. I hope it works. It is very challenging to me!

And this is all I have to share today! Until next time, happy sewing y'all!

Not my good china plates

Another weekend has come and gone and I did nothing with the Dresden Plate blocks. Can you see me? I am hanging my head in shame. I am seriously thinking about cutting off the blanket stitching that I started and doing machine appliqué instead. Because I haven't committed to that, I have done nothing. Perhaps next weekend I will get back to it.

We've been super busy. Last weekend we went to Kansas and played music at a renaissance faire.

That's my son on the left, the Mister in the middle, and me!
We took our RV out for the second time since we bought it back in May:
We had a good time and played well.

I finished the flip flop block for the My Favorite Things August block:

I also finished block six in the Folk Art BOM quilt:
I haven't done much else. The summer is going out with a bang and I've been just a hopping to keep up with things.
I hope you are finding some sewing time too! Till next time, Happy Sewing y'all!

More Paper Plates

We took an impromptu camping trip this weekend so I don't have anything to report this time. See you next Sunday or Monday!
Happy Sewing Y'all
