It has been so inspiring that I showed you a sneak peek last week of what I have been working, well I finished that project and have gone on to another one. But I'm saving the picture of it for the "Leafs Me Happy" blog hop that starts on Oct. 1st. So you'll have to come back to see it then. ;) But How about about sneak peek at some other projects in the works? Friday was a major cutting day for me and I went to town on my stash of Halloween fabrics. I would have to say there is 5 possible projects on my iron board right now. Now granted
|There's How Many Projects Here... ?|
So other than all the cutting I've been handquilting the baby quilt for my friend ~ Sue from my Quilt and Needle online group, finished the little wall hanging quilt from last weeks sneak peek, playing in Quilter's Gallery Blog Hopping Give Away Party that started today and goes thru 9/3 (button on side).
Then as I was visiting Quilters Gallery , I took a peek at next weeks "Weekly Themed Quilt Contest" for 9/27 ~~ Leaves, Trees and Flowers. I decided to make an entry using the Challenge Mini that I was doing with my beloved friend Gerda. We loved to challenge each other in working outside our normal boxes. And last summer we came up with one that was to include the following: Hand Appliqued using a Lori Smith pattern,; no bigger then 18" X 20" and had to be stashbusting. We as a pair never got to finish the project together and she passed away 6/4/12..... so I finally finished mine and named it in her honor.

Okay on a more cheerful note.... I was honored to have my Homesteading Today.com block posted on Kay Mackenzie's "Show & Tell" page this week. it was the cat in a basket block I made not so long ago. You can see it here: http://www.kaymackenzie.com/wordpress/ .
I'm still trying to play in the Traveling Stash with the hopes of being lucky enough to see what is actually inside one of these wonderful boxes. For more information feel free to click on the "Traveling Stash" button.
Whew!!!!! Sure is a lot going on this week. LOL. But I'm thinking that next month on the 21st I will have been blogging of 6 months and should have a little give-away. Wow!! Where did the time go? I have a couple of ideas as to what I'm going to offer as a prize but for now it's a Surprise ..... you'll just have to come back and vist me on that weekend.
Now I do have a question this week as a starting point in my research for my blog hop participation.
When looking at something that has embroidery on it, are you a "purest" as in want NO crayon coloring on it or if it adds to the piece with things like color and texture ties it all together, you find that Yes you like the look of coloring on fabric?
Please be sure to leave your answers in the comments and know that I'm will respond to each one. I'm looking reading all that you have to say.
Well we have a Thunderstorm rolling in and it's time to put this post to bed for the week. Hope to hear from you soon.
