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:
- Finish My Surprise Quilt
- Prepare the remaining 5 blocks for In My Garden
- Start a hand quilting project (have a few tops that are waiting in line patiently)
- Do more hand work, less piecing as it is time to catch up on those UFOs.
- Send 12 quilts to Rebecca for quilting.
- FINALLY get back to my long arm and finish up the remainder of quilt tops.
- 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!
