In The Making
I have a commission for two different size special bags for a young lady who loves horses. I had just picked up this horse print (ESP?) and had this wonderful feather print from Wendy Sheppard's de-stash. I have one bag done and the second is in the 'scratch pad, math' mode and hope to have that completed in the next day.
I have another commission for a photo memory quilt, too. That I can't show without permission. I would like to have that done by the end of September as October is a very full month of events. AND then November/December I hibernate as usuall!! OMG - thinking to the end of the year which is fast approaching!!
I did manage to get the JR Race quilt top done for the Jelly Roll Day. It's a little plain, but I like VAL'S raw edge flowers and may add some to this for a little perk-me-up. But that will have to wait for a later time.
The next block for the Patchwork QAL came out - Grandmother's Choice, which a great heritage block to play with. I am working these as leader/enders while I am making those bags.
Mother Nature is making quick work of the changing seasons. These maples will change in a blink of an eye and then be totally bare.
This tree has been dead for a long time, but the old grape vine loves to use it and we leave it for the wild life and birds. Once a wonderful green now going into purple, it still is pretty.
I zoomed into the neighbors. Those maples are actually our property line - coloring out. And you can see bits of color in the mountains as well as the corn in becoming 'golden' - harvest time.
One of my guild members had gotten a wonderful photo of my Hall of Fame plaque block. Here is the scrappy pineapple in all it's glory - finished block size is 12.5", so yes those are little blocks. I wouldn't want to make a whole quilt with these, maybe another mini down the line though.
And I am very proud of my daughter - she passed her test (soon we will be calling her doctor) AND got word that she is entered officially into the Boston Marathon! And to think - I hated school and couldn't run across the lawn if I had to!!
