It is so hard to believe that we are this deep into the year, but I do love the Fall season. I had hoped to keep my goal list short as I know I have obligations to care of my Mom after her next surgery and our Quilt Guild's quilt show that I want to help out as much as possible (plus a demo time). But as I wrote out my list - well, it filled the page.
NewFO for the month will be my project for the Monthly Doll Quilt Swap Group and the theme (already agreed upon with my partner) for the month is 'Farmer's Market'. I usually do these up as my first project done for the month, but because the first 2 weeks of the month I am extremely busy this will be further down on my list. BUT it will be done, sent, and received before the end of the month.
I failed horribly on this last month and will use my projects again this month. OLD - load my EQ and start using it. New - get those tutorials on a tab.
I had several books pulled and then narrowed it down to four. Then something came up and I found the pattern I want to use in one of those books.
I won this from Sue when she announced it's publishing - gosh, I am not saying how long ago.
And this is the pattern I am going to use. I can't say more, or show the fabric I am using - blah, blah, blah - as it will give everything away.
I will be making a small, simple project for the Make It a Handmade Christmas Challenge. And the Simple Small Monthly Project is a quick table topper. These should be good projects to work on during my busy first couple of weeks.
All the blocks for all the QALs - but some of them are wrapping up:
RSC14 , Marcus Brothers, Country Corners, Charming Stars
Speaking of wrapping up, you will start to see some of those buttons on the side bar disappear and new ones pop up. As the year winds down, so do some of those activities - and I am trying to catch the new QALs and SALs for the next season as well as I am starting to see some 2015 announcements coming out.
I am participating in the 'Black Cat Crossing Hop' - my day is Oct 23.
AND - this is my blog anniversary month - so there will be a give away coming up.
I hope the Fall season of October inspires you,
