A Little Slow Stitching

I am trying to get a little slow stitching done before Glorious Gardens meets again next Saturday. (Go on over and see what everyone else is up to here.)

 I have missed the past couple of months and have fallen behind on my goal to get all 92 hexagons done by the end of the year. That will not happen now, but I would like to finish 10 more before next weekend. A couple a day should easily get it done. I’ve got seven cut out, so I need to get three more cut. And I finished a couple yesterday, so 8 to go. These fabrics are so out of the box for me, but I have thoroughly enjoyed working with them.

Reverting back to my more traditional side, I finished off this top and got the backing and binding prepped, so it is all ready to go off for quilting. The pattern, Bricks and Stepping Stones, is a free pattern from Bonnie Hunter 

This was quick and easy...and I love the way it turned out. Everything came from scrap and stash....I even had a batting the right size!

One of the many reasons I love this cooler weather ..

Time for a big pot of greens and some piping hot cornbread....YUM!!!

Got to love this cute cheerleader😍😍

We celebrated Matt’s birthday here this week..

Words of wisdom ...really need to post this in a very visible place in my home.

Take Care,

A Few Things to Share

Thought I would try to share a few things today. I have actually completed more, but haven’t gotten pics of them yet.

I was able to complete the Temecula First Friday blocks for September and October before November’s showed up in my Inbox.

These blocks,so far, have ended up just the right size for all of these months.....until the large log cabin above. It is 1/2” too small. How did that happen?? I thought I was so careful, I starched my fabrics, I sewed carefully. Ugh!! Well, I am not going to remake it yet. I am going to wait and see if I can fudge somehow when the quilt is constructed. If not, it will be back to the drawing board on that one.

Homespun Medallions is coming along slowly. 

It’s a fun, fast project to hook and could be done quickly if I just devoted a bit more time to it.

Scrappy Chickens is a finish....binding and all.

Had a fun time crafting with these gals...

And making these cute little boxes.

It was Grandparents’ Day at Jackson’s school.

Rob is back in the hospital again with yet another cerebrospinal fluid leak and wound infection. He has been pretty miserable, but feels a bit better today. Prayers appreciated for Rob and all of us who love him dearly.

Take Care,
