Happy Sunday! No changes here weather wise, just hot and dry. Prediction is for chances of a weather change for the week. Hopefully some rain!
I have been working on Bats and Boo’s. i am on the last pumpkin. Then I will start on the Bat’s. The tread has calmed down somewhat. But I won’t be buying anymore Weeks thread!
OK now for an update on the Wedding Ring project. On the Third attempt for fabric selection I finally got it right for a controlled Scrappy. I am happy that I did not give up on it. I do not like to give up on a project I had planned to make. When I do throw in the towel it usually is the right thing to do.
So I went back to the Stash Room and found a Focus Fabric – a Robert Kaufman Screen Print I had purchased years ago and that got me inspired. I also spent time watching Shar Jorganson’s You Tube video on making the Wedding Ring quilt and studying the way she did the cutting. Great Video! Here is what my quilt will look like! I have not decided on the colors for the blank spaces. That fabric selection will come after I finish all the blocks I make. I have enough made for 2 blocks. Using Shar’s method of cutting things shall go quickly. Sewing it together will take longer LOL
On the embroidery project – the Moda Holiday Stitch – A – Long I have finished 4 of the 14 blocks maybe by Christmas it will be finished. I enjoy working on it when the day just does not go the way I want it to go!
Well for now that is all there is. nothing going on here other than quilting as it is just too hot and too expensive and dangerous to take a trip. Maybe after November!
Hugs, have a great week! To be honest, I am ready to get out of Dodge for awhile

Bats and Boos stitchery is looking good! And I love the plan for the wedding ring quilt, Nanette! 🙂
The fabrics for the wedding ring quilt are lovely! They would look nice with a soft white or a very light gray fabric. Happy stitching!
Love the Bats and Boos. Years ago I bought Weeks thread and did not care for it, but I can’t remember why! Your fabric choices for wedding ring are beautiful! Glad you found a way to do it that makes you happy.
We finally got our cool front last night, and it’s 69 this morning. Not a drop of rain, so out comes the hose this morning.
Love the color choices for the wedding ring project.
Wedding ring colors are beautiful.
I love the wedding ring fabrics. I often go to a patterned fabric and take inspiration from it for other fabrics. Your embroidery and cross-stitching is looking great. Try to stay cool.
Bats and Boos is moving along nicely,the pumpkins really are cute. I ❤️ your wedding ring fabrics!!! The Christmas blocks would be a lovely finish for the holidays. 🙂
