December

Here we go.
We are starting the last month of the year.

I always find it interesting that the last month goes so fast
while the first month of the new year goes so slow.

We have been busy.
I haven't sewn since the craft show.

I need to get a quilt quilted for Christmas,
so I hope to get it done soon.

More Craft Show



I made these aprons for the craft show.



They were quick and cute.



I'm hoping, being the weekend before Thanksgiving,
they will sell.
If not, I will use them as gifts.

Maybe I should have Wes wear one.
I think he can sell it.

Craft Show

I have a confession to make.
I really don't like craft shows.

But I also have a problem.
I have acquired a few sewing machines this year.
Not to mention a sewing machine cabinet

.

I need to clean out my basement before the kids come home for the holidays.

So I decided to do a craft show at the local Senior Center.


This means I have to sew everyday.

I have been so busy.
But if you have to be busy, 
you might as well be sewing.

This week:  Bags....there are more to come.



Mug Rugs
I do love a  mug rug.

Happy Fall


I love this time of year.
The trees are so pretty.

Even my sewing has changed direction.

Happy Fall!

I feel Fall Coming

Well, this journey started at a Senior Centers quilt show in Malad Idaho.

I saw it there and have wanted to make my own ever since.

I took my time.

In fact, I'm not done, 
but I have some other things to take care.



When I see the leaves change,
it reminds me that I have Christmas projects that need finished.




So, I will wait to put the border on this quilt
and finish some projects.


Like this one.
I'm so happy I don't have to cook this year,
I'm giving this one to my sister, the cook.


Enjoy the season.

The Last Row


I finished the last row!!!
I am going to put it together next week,
but I am going to wait until after I finish some Christmas projects 
to put the border on it.




We took a drive this week.
I stopped at this quilt store in Afton Wyoming.
Very nice people there.


The colors were changing.



But I loved this naturally distressed look
of a building near the railroad tracks 
in Bancroft Idaho.



I love Fall.

Baskets

I had time to sew the baskets yesterday.

I thought I was done, 
when I realized that I was one short.

I really wanted a gray one.

I love it.




I only have one more row to go.
The flowers.
I am scared to look and see how many 1 1/2 inch squares I get to cut out.

I can't wait to see a finished product.
