Upcoming Fun

In case you have been wondering.... I am still around... We have had such a busy summer with visitors for about two months straight and lots of outdoor time.  My quilting has suffered.  But September is coming, along with winter.  We have cool temperatures and the leaves are turning.  And quilting is ramping up.  Friday Night With Friends is on this Friday and I have a quilting weekend with in-person friends Friday through Sunday as well.  Then our big fall four day retreat happens at the end of September.

And I will be joining up with Ida and Irene's Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade again at My Sister Made Me Do It.  It starts on September 4th, so get your pincushions ready to strut their stuff!  I have threatened to make a new pincushion for this year's parade and I even have my idea formulated!

I have managed to do a little bit of stitching over the summer - for instance keeping up with my sewing obligations for the Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap.  Here are the hexies I made for Gail, my August swap partner.


And I finally blocked and hemmed the woven rag placemats that I made in a weaving course last fall.


And there have been some exciting times in our yard...

Aren't these guys cute!!  Here's a close up of the twins.


I passed my 10 year blogging anniversary in June and I have been meaning to do a giveaway to celebrate.  So stay tuned....

I hope you will join in some of the upcoming fun with Irene and Ida for the Pincushion Parade and with Cheryl for Friday Night with Friends.

  7. I totally understand about the busyness of summer. We have such a short time to enjoy the warm weather that all else takes a back seat.
