Wow! I cannot believe how long it's been since I posted! I've been busy. I wish that I was away because of a vacation but, no, just busy with life.
One great thing...I did get a new car! Mine was on it's last leg so I needed to trade it in for a new one. I'll miss the old one, we traveled many miles together over the past 10 years! But, the new one is really nice so I think I can form a new relationship and deal with the change...HAHA!
I bet some of you who know me thought I couldn't remember how to get back onto the blog...LOL! That does happen but not this time!
BUT, I have been doing a little sewing. Not enough but some...
Here are a few WIP's from the past couple of weeks.
First, I did find some good oranges and other fall looking fabrics to work with...here are a few.
I went to my sister's house again and we worked on the same project. A pumpkin banner that she had a pattern for. We shared some of our fabrics. Now I just need to find the time to get a stem on the pumpkin and decide if I want to put leaves or stars (I could put stars on anything!) in the 'dead' space.
Sorry it's sideways! :)
Then I started to design a fall tote. Working on the quilting before assembly.
Nuts! I just noticed those two cream pieces that are the same got butted together. Dang it! Funny how you don't see these things until you take a photo. Oh well. One will be on the bottom of the bag so it should be okay...wait a second...the two greens on the upper left...darn, and the gold! I'm leaving it!!!! If Vera Bradley doesn't like it too bad!!!
Lastly (sorry this is a long one), I had another mystery class at the shop and this was the runner the class made. I am getting ready to sew on the binding.
Hope everyone is having a great final couple of weeks to the summer! The weather here has been lovely!
