OMG – 30 September 2022 and Projected October Goals

I will welcome in October and hoping for a wet and cold winter here in South Texas. The mornings are becoming cooler and I am enjoying the morning walk, more and more. BUT I believe that when one is 31 days from turning 78 I had better put the pedal to the metal so that by the time I get to Halloween I am back to my 20 minute mile! I wonder what I will be able to do when I hit 80! Hum, I just want to continue with my daily walk and have fun quilting, knitting, embroidery, and cross stitching.

I have been working on My Surprise Quilt and In The Garden Bunny Rabbit blocks (there are 4 of them). To read the background story of My Surprise Quilt click here.

Here are the Rabbit Blocks completed this month. One more light brown bunny to applique!

I still have more borders to make for My Surprise Quilt, but I have made more progress on it this month. I will have some 1″ border strips and then 2 more block borders and one plain border to end the quilt. It will top out at 80″ x 80″ or 84″ x 84″. – It will be a surprise to all of us! LOL

For October my goals will be:

  1. Finish My Surprise Quilt
  2. Prepare the remaining 5 blocks for In My Garden
  3. Start a hand quilting project (have a few tops that are waiting in line patiently)
  4. Do more hand work, less piecing as it is time to catch up on those UFOs.
  5. Send 12 quilts to Rebecca for quilting.
  6. FINALLY get back to my long arm and finish up the remainder of quilt tops.
  7. Complete my Churn Dash SAL project – I need to put the blocks together in a setting

I hope that the month of October is a quiet month – that means no ISSUES OR PROBLEMS! Any bets on that one? LOL

Have a wonderful week-end and a great beginning of October. We do not have Fall yet, maybe next time!

Hugs, Nanette
