Closing October


These trees are now bare and the corn fields have been harvested.  The Canadian Honkers have been coming in to feast on the freshly cut fields, fattening up and recouping for the next long leg of their journey.  The furkids are spending more time indoors, finding the extra blankets put out great napping places.  Yes, the smell of snow is in the air - heck, we've had snow!

Let's see how I did with my October goals............


The RSC15 monthly color was brown.  Since most of my projects had their block amounts, this was the only one that got visited.  Actually, most of my RSC blocks were shipped off to Sarah's group.  I have plenty to keep me busy and they make great use of those blocks very quickly.


I finished my little project for Let's Book It.  Some fun with little pieces.

 Slow Sunday Stitching

I failed miserably with Slow Sunday Stitching.  I did do one hand stitched binding and the others I finished up with machine.  But I never touched the melon (pumpkin seed or orange peel) blocks


I guess it was because I got distracted in making the 'Country Roads' with Lori at Humble Quilts.  Yup, a little baggy of scraps just took me off into another world.


And Jo @ Jo's Country Junction always has a Bonnie Hunter UFO challenge - finish up one of those projects before the new BH Mystery comes out.  It made me get that lozenges flimsy quilted - finished!!  


I managed to keep some secret sewing from you all.  My wallhanging and pillow for the Halloween Haunts Blog Hop.  Wasn't that fun?  Actually I have another secret project that was done in October, but that won't be shown until Nov 3rd.  And NO, it's not about cats.


This guy - remember he gave us a scare in October - he is sticking to home these days.  Still loves a good box, pile of scraps, or the snuggle blanket now 
on the couch for a good nap. And I will be sure to keep an eye on him on Halloween Night - maybe my furkids need some treats. 

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon
