October Goals

Thankfully October isn't as busy as September was, but I do have events so I am keeping my goals light again.

RSC15 - the color for the month is BROWN.  As you can see, my browns are on the light side - even my yardage on the shelf.  But I only have one woven heart and two houses to make - all my other RSC projects have the 'block count' I need.

Slow Sunday Stitching

I think I will use Slow Sunday Stitching to finish up those demonstration melon blocks and maybe even get them put together.  I am planning this to be a full hand stitch project - even the piecing.

Another mini project for Let's Book It.  A print out saved so long ago.  It is really hard to photo, but here is the Free download for this pattern.  Yes, those are really tiny paper piecing squares.

We set up our two women show today (Oct 1st) and hopefully that won't take too long with all the helpers.  That runs all month and we have a reception on the 10th.

My Blog Anniversary is on the 16th, with give away to be announced.

Our neighboring local quilt guild is having a quilt show the 17th-18th and I have one quilt (Catalicious) for that - so need to get it there and pick it up after.

Oct 16 - 28

And I am participating in the Halloween Haunts Blog Hop - my day is the 26th.  My projects are finished, but I have to photo them - if the rain stops.  Yes, over 6 inches of rain the last couple of days and Storm Joaquin will hit over the weekend - may need a boat. 

Yes, I am slowing down and starting to take my 'Keep it Simple' to heart.  I want to just have November and December a clean up time at a relaxed pace.

Sewingly Yours,

Keep It Simple! That's my motto, too! It really helps in today's world! Looks like you are going to be busy this month, too, so keeping it simple will help you through. Thanks for the link! I really like that block! Good luck with your show.

Like your simple monthly plans.....I am just going to rest on my laurels i think :)

Plenty to do, and that's a good list of goals. You're brave to take on that little paper-piecing project. Stay safe and dry this weekend.

Sounds like a pretty busy month. Your two Let's Book It projects are going to be fun to watch come together. Hopefully you can stay home for the worst of the rain. Sounds like you'll get a lot of rain even without Joaquin.
