It is Day 1

The blogs for today are:

I’m going to check out Stacey and Jessica’s blogs and I hope you do too!  They will tell you about themselves and what they like to create.  And they will both have a giveaway from one of our sponsors.  Smile

There will also be a great giveaway from Timeless Treasures on the Sew Sisters blog so check them out as well.

Edited to add:  I think that there is actually a giveaway on Sew Sisters blog every day of the blogathon.  Sweet!

When I told you about my month of September last week I forgot to mention the quilt retreat that I went to.  Three days of sewing and fun in beautiful Haines Junction.  I didn’t take any pictures….  but I can show you some of what I worked on.

A wee bit of quilting…. I hope to have another finish to show off soon!!

I finished the third panel on my Three Cat Stories Quilt.  This one was started in …..2010…  It isn’t quite done yet.  I am still going to put a border on it, but I am aiming to give it away at Christmas so I had best get on with it!

And I put some more of my postage stamps blocks together…. There is a long way to go on this quilt as this is at most a quarter of what I need.  But it does go together quickly once I work on it.

That’s all for today.  I’ll be back tomorrow to remind you which blogs to check out for the day.

  2. Oh, that postage stamp quilt! I found you when looking down the list to see who would be hosting from the Yukon. I signed up to follow you. I'm homesick! We retired and moved to BC last December, nearly a year afo. I think it's time to come back for a visit to the old stomping grounds, lol!

  20. Wow on the postage stamp quilt - how big are the blocks? Do you make the block as leaders and enders while you sew other things, or do you sit down and work on it a bit at a time?? You'll have to show the finished product!
