September Ends - Thank You

It was a very long and busy month that I am so glad is over!  Mental note - do not book events on every weekend of a month ever again!!  And I paid the price for it - 10 days of being sick and hopefully on the up swing from it.

I got very little self time and got very little sew time in.  It seems that once the Harvest Moon crest, we went right into full blown Fall season.  We've had a few nights of frost on the pumpkin and days went from HOT to sweat shirt/jacket weather.  I love sweat shirts.

Didn't finish my Let's Book It project

Got started on the Mod Bear Paw QAL, but not as many blocks done as planned.  This one is to enjoy, not rush.


Did get to visit a local shop.

Some scrap play with Bonnie Hunter's HourGlass Block Challenge.

Kept on schedule with the '365' circles - done on my travels.

I laid out all my Circa 2016 blocks - think I am missing a few.  I have more than enough HSTs for that outer border, but they need trimming.

The new Westering Women block came out today, but I will be re-drafting that one so no stress of Y-seams.

And worst of all - I did not get to my Granddaughter's big girl quilt.  And no Birthday kisses for her as I was too contagious for grandie time.

Yes, glad September is over,
Sewingly Yours,


  1. I hope you are feeling better soon, Sharon. xxx

  2. All is looking so good, the blocks, the paws,a visit, Bonnie's blocks, and most of all,hope you are all better now.

  3. Yes, busy were you! Glad you are better and planning a new month :)

  4. What a month for you! Love seeing these wonderful projects and especially love your Bonnie Hunter quilt. Hope you are on the mend and that you can relax and sew in October without giving up all your weekends!

  5. I get it! This month has been so busy, I've barely had time to do any crafting and I'm feeling the withdrawal. Here's to a sewing-filled October!

  6. Glad you are feeling better. Hopefully October will let you catch your breath and catch up a bit before the holidays kick in.

  7. Amazing amount you achieve for a month with very little sew time. Hope you really are on the mend.

  8. Hope you are better soon. Rest, relax and stitch.

  9. Glad you are on the mend. Hopefully you'll be at 100% in no time. You got quite a bit of sewing done with your hectic schedule this month.

  10. Well, you got a lot done in spite of such a busy month. My past two weeks since getting home from our trip have been kind of crazy, and so I can sympathize with that feeling of not enough free time. Hope you're feeling better by now, although a bout of illness can take the starch out of you even when you're feeling better. "Drink lots of water," as my mother would say, and she was a nurse, so she should know.

  11. Your monthly wrap up posts are just like a fun new quilting magazine arriving in the mail.

    I hope October is a healthier month for you.

  12. I agree with Barbara about the water thing. It's amazing what dehydration even in small amounts can do to the body.
    I think you still got a lot done, even with busy weekends. Loved some of those blocks.
    May I as about the "Lets's Book It", does it hae to bee quilting
    or can it be any sewing to link up? Thaks and have a good week end.

  13. I think you did pretty good despite the busy schedule!
