September Goals

The scent of Fall is in the air.  Our trees are starting to show color, some even losing a few leaves.  This is my favorite season - colors, smells, fruit of the season, cooler temps.  A lot to inspire the month's stitching.

 2014 NewFO Challenge

My official NewFO will again be my project for the Doll Quilt Swap Group.  This will be my last swap for the year - sitting out for a bit as there are other committments that will fill my plate.

Never too hot to Stitch!

My projects for Something Old, Something New will be non-stitching.  I have been terrible with re-loading my EQ on the new computer - which isn't so new any more.  So my Something Old will be to commit to loading up that disc and using it. I do hope this old dog can learn  some new tricks!

My Something New will be to add a new tab to my blog.  In participating in the Tuesday Archives I have noticed there are a lot of tutorials over the years.  So I will be using the month to get those into a list/tab.  


I pulled out a lot of books thru August, looking for the right project for September's Let's Book It.  I had four I really liked/loved, but went with something for the season.

I just love Jim Shore's figurines, and have bought a few over the years for my Mom - really should pick up some for myself.  A lot of these projects are LARGE, but I want to stay with a simple project so I am making some adjustments.

Boy it is hard to photo a glossing page!  I love this runner, but it is 62" long and I really don't have anywhere for such.  So I am making this into a wallhanging.  Pumpkins and HSTs - orange is a color I have trouble working with, so a challenge.  Not sure I will use purple, but we will see what inspires.


RSC14's color for the month is orange - will help with pulling fabrics for those pumpkins.  And can't wait to see what the next block is for the Quilt Doodle  project.  This one is getting close to a finish.

I have a small project picked out for the Make it Handmade Christmas Challenge.  A small project, but I plan on making a few.  Some QALs in progress with Marcus Brothers and the Country Corners - and a new one Charming Stars which will be done as a leader/ender project.  Not sure I will be doing some of the others (new buttons on the side bar).

I will be posting on the 15th

My projects are ready and waiting for my day - Sept 15th.

We will be participating in the Airing of the Quilts in Schoharie and you can read about it HERE and HERE.

Just a few projects and events that will keep me close to home because - waiting for that new GrandBabe!!


Departing summer hath assumed
An aspect tenderly illumed,
The gentlest look of spring;
That calls from yonder leafy shade
Unfaded, yet prepared to fade,
A timely carolling.
-  William Wordsworth, September

Sewingly Yours,

Another busy month, the non-sewing projects always take so much time and concentration.

Scrapatches said...

Your are sew organized ... and sew accomplished! I am always inspired when I visit your blog to be better organized and you have such great ideas and beautiful quilts, I always want to start sewing my own version of your creation. That table runner idea looks wonderful and I am looking forward to seeing what you sew.

Fall is my favorite season. I love everything about it ... the colors, the juicy apples, the scent of baking pumpkin pie, the crisp air, the crunchy leaves.

If I had the time, I'd love to follow the airing of the quilts trail. What a great idea!

Enjoy September ... thanks for sharing ... :) Pat

Making a list of monthly goals is a idea I should try. I'll keep an eye out for the new buttons.
Still hot here, but it won't be long before it's time to start using the crock pot. (hint hint)

I am always amazed at how many projects you are able to complete in a month. Making a list is something I should try. Creative Stitching Bliss...

It will be fun seeing your projects come to fruition this month. The Airing of the Quilts looks like a huge, fun project. Can't wait to see yours.

Sounds like you've got some great fall plans. Happy stitching.

I need to check the calendar to see if I can make the drive and see the quilts. I think it would be a ton of fun.
