It has been a whole week since I have posted , a challenging week , joint wise , I don't like to complain but I will say the Golden Years are not all that golden at times . I was not as successful with my UFO's this month as I had hoped but I did make progress . I have done some more work on my Home Sweet Home wool project a BOM from Melody ,still lots to go on that though . I finally made the last block for the Autumn Bounty and took the leap and sliced it in half just like the pattern said , that was not easy after piecing this block that had so many pieces , I didn't want to mess it up .There were two blocks the same that had to be sliced and they are now on the project along with a narrow border and a wider border , want to see ... sure you do .
here I don't have any batting on hand or I might do the quilting on this today , oh well it can wait a bit longer. Funny yesterday when I finished sewing the border on I showed Bill as I usually do when I finish something and he looked at it and said "It's very nice but why are you making that now" I could have said I am getting a head start on next fall but I told the truth and told him I am trying to finish up some projects :-)
I have also been working on the embroidery blocks for the Winter in Blogland project from Ellie's Quilt Place .I am down to the last little block and almost finished with it too , so that makes me feel great as I adore this project , it is still on Ellies sidebar if you want to check it out .I will share photos of those once I finish off this last block.
It has been extra cold here the past while , but we have had some sun so that makes it a little easier to take the chilly weather . Here is a photo I took on the weekend at the beach , if you are having a hot flash this might cool you off ;-)
