Sewing September 17, 18, 19, 20, and 22

That's right...there was no sewing on September 21st!
That day was reserved for the walk...
although I did quickly sew up three more
travel tissue packet pockets because I 
thought we might run short of them at the walk.

My sister and I made about 48 of them to give to all the family and friends
that participated in the walk on Sunday.
I will post a photo of them when I have one to show.

NOW back to what I've been sewing...
What I did was to start pulling out some of
my WIP Halloween and Fall projects to finish.

All of these have now reached the point where they are ready to quilt...
This FALL wall hanging has some really cute fall scraps.
And the word FALL is actually an Americana print!

I am struggling with a binding for this maple leaf runner...UGH!

This one is so simple but appliqueing around those little
eyes and noses...tedious!

I finished the decorative stitching on this next one...
sort of a crazy quilt table topper.
Had lots of fun picking out stitches and used up a lot of 
bobbins with small amounts of thread on them that I couldn't stand the 
thought of throwing away.
I am not sure about leaving the acorns on there ~ but they are cute little acorns.

I also pulled out a Dresden plate that I started a number of years ago.
Never sewed the plates together but I do have them all cut out and ready to sew.
This one is ready to applique onto the back and I can actually make 3 more
blocks like this with what I have ready to sew.

Honestly, now I wish I had more!
I really have started to form a love/love relationship
with the Dresden plate.

I love love them!!!

So this, in addition to taking about 30 minutes a day 
in an  attempt to organize the sewing area and my fabrics,
has kept me occupied and busy.

Happy Sewing,
