I’ve been in complete denial that September is already over, and that we’re already at the SECOND day of October! How can that be?
I had another slow block-making month, but since I’m a bit ahead, that’s OK. But seriously — can you believe we only have 3 more months left in 2017? I’m already way into 2018 planning, and I’m not ready! Waaaahhh!
My total for September is FOUR.
While these do not count as blocks, I managed to complete five more pillowcases for our guild’s charity pillowcase stash:
I finally finished all my Florence Flamingo blocks, and got my top put together at a retreat I went to:
This is an Elizabeth Hartman pattern, and I’m calling my version “There’s One in Every Crowd!”
I’m seriously addicted to Elizabeth’s patterns, so much so that I also bought this book last weekend:
And I bought this book, too. I’m planning to start a Crazy Quilt. What else does a crazy person do, right?
And to distract you from all of that, here’s a picture of my sweet little boy, Ranger. He’s at the back door, asking to come inside, completely forgetting how boring it is indoors for him — and just prior to me snapping this photo, he was licking the glass on the window! He makes me laugh every single day, the stubborn little imp!
And I would also like to confess that I recently discovered these, and after singlehandedly polishing off this entire bag in record time, I’ve had to put blinders on while in the store, or avoid the store altogether to keep from getting more of them. I had secretly hoped they just wouldn’t taste good, but alas, they are delicious, dang it!
Now it’s your turn! How did you do this month? Did you get lots of blocks made? What have you been up to? Are you having a wonderful autumn? Leave a comment or contact me, and let me know how you did.
I’ve gotten the Project page updated with all our latest totals, and our new goal for October is 32 blocks for a year-to-date total of 306.
The August prize winner is Marilyn, who so far has a total of 107 blocks made — woohoo!
I hope we can all get lots of stitching done in October!
