The RSC color for October is brown. I was able to accomplish a brown string star tonight.
I like these.  They may be the only RSC 2016 blocks I get done, as I still have last year's to finish. But I am okay with that. I will still have the fun of playing along, and a few scraps will be used up. Click on the RSC button to see what the other participants are doing.

I hooked a couple more small rectangles from my worms....

And I got one of my sewing machine tables and the cutting table cleared except for the current project.  

I won't show you where all of that stuff went :-((

I am making progress on Allietaire and almost have the bunny rug bound.

My friend, Kathie, gifted me with the most amazing thing. A Zirkle....
It is magnetic, and when you drop your pins on it, they line up, heads out, ready to use. I am in awe. 

Miss Mattie is growing by leaps and bounds. 
She has plenty of puppy toys, but has an affinity for Buddy's big old gorilla.

Poor Buddy...

This week has been difficult for our family, as we received the bad news that Rob's tumor is growing. They will take a wonderful family vacation to Colorado for a week and then return to formulate a new plan to fight this monster.  Once again, prayers appreciated.

Take Care,


  1. your string stars are great! the pin "cushion" is, too!

  2. Prayers for Rob. Enjoy your vacation together.
    That new pin cushion looks great. So handy to have them arranged for easy grabbing.

  3. Love, love, love your string stars! Can't wait to see them in a quilt!

  4. So heartbreaking to hear about Rob. My heart aches for all of you.
    It seems so trivial to mention that your projects are wonderful and furbabies too cute.
    Hugs :)

  5. Lots of chocolaty goodness in that BROWN String Star!!

  6. Both stars are great stash busters. Good going! Love Miss Mattie and her antics. The Zinkle is amazing, I want one. I'll be praying for Rob and the family.

  7. Wow--look at all that space! I wish I could get my sewing areas cleared off, but I'm not sure where I would put everything. I just got a Zirkel too--so far I am loving it (and your string stars too!).
