Where did Sept. go!!!

It is hard to believe we are almost at the end of the month I sure don’t know where it went but looking at the calendar it has just about completely disappeared that is for sure.

Let see the 2nd Monday of the month my small quilt guild did a shop hop and we went to Manchester, Dyersville and Cascade and visited the quilt shops in those towns.

I have been to the shop in Manchester and really like going there even though it really is bit of a drive. While there I picked up this pattern 6390308

Along with some fabric to work on a different tote and the stiffener that you use in the different totes/purses. I got the Caddy done but did not get a picture of it to show off. Will go for that in the next couple days.

Add to that I am now writing this blog from my second job. I am doing two 10 hour shifts from noon to 10:00 pm so that keeps me busy too with this being the first month for this.

The nice part about this job is if the world is quiet I can bring hand work along and get a few things done. So far I am about 3/4ths of the way thru doing the 2nd Sun Bonnet Sue Quilt I think I have like 5 blocks left to button hole down to the black background.

So that is what has been going on in my world hope you have been busy and getting a lot done in yours.

found some triangles

110905-145814
I had made a table runner out of this fabric and had a group of triangles setting in a pile and so I got them stitched together and then made into a small table runner or Hexagon runner.
I am so found some fabric that were to be done up in runners that were blue design that had a horse theme these belong to a friend who was making some runners for her mother for Christmas.
She stop by before I got a picture of them. The fabric was enough to make a longer table runner and 3 Hexagon runners. so much fun.
I then dug out a project that has been 2/3rd done a quilt top the pattern is called summer Breeze and was fun to put together then the borders needed to be done and I have a strip fabric for that. The problem is I don’t remember the plan of how I was going to finish the borders and I think I cut them to wide. and the corners are mitered and that seems to be a problem for me right now. I am cutting into what I think I have set aside for binding to finish them and so that may be a challenge down the road. 110905-153222
