Fall


I love fall and can't wait for it to start. The days cool off, the humidity goes down, the leaves change, and you know the holiday season is coming soon. I have already started of a fall wallhanging along with getting ideas together for christmas presents! It's time to get busy!

My Schnibbles Times Two book just came in the mail today too and I am so excited! What do I make first? There are several patterns in there i love. Decisions, decisions...we will see what happens!

Moda


I got my first Moda fabrics! I got a Whimsy jelly roll and a Nature's Notebook honey bun! I am so excited and can't wait to get started using them but I already have a few projects lined up to do first.


I have been trying out a pattern for a wallhanging that Sharon, the owner of Treadle Pushers Quilt Shop, has written. This was her first time writing her own pattern and she did a pretty good job. I edited it a little and now she is about ready to put some kits together. A picture will be up here soon. Other than that, not much is going on besides work and try to catch up on all my projects.

Back Again



Wow. So much has been going on that I forgot I had started this. Time has just flown by this summer. I have learned that crafts can get you through anything. Whenever I start feeling down I have learned to tell myself to just keep knitting or quilting through it. That everything will be ok. As long as you are working towards a goal, no matter how small, you can get through anything. That being said, I have a new finished baby blanket and a baby blanket and three quilts in progress!
