Autumn is Coming

Wow, I didn't realize it had been so long since I'd done a post!

Now that DD is back at school, I have gotten back to my routine. I love the weather we're having, nice sunny days and cool crisp nights. I like Fall colors although they aren't my favorite. I've been working with lots of orange, brown and rust lately. Not to mention purple, black, gray and green for Halloween.

I've finished a table runner, a few mug rugs, a tote and a cosmetic bag.





This week I'm going to work with some other colors before I start making table runners for Thanksgiving. After all a little orange goes a long way.

Missing My Routine

I've got so much going on right now it seems everything is half done. DD goes back to school in 11 days. I hope to get back to my routine soon. In the meantime I had to do some mindless sewing today with one of my favorite colors!

I know you’ve seen these pieces from time to time on my blog. They are 2 1/2” square leaders and enders that I’ve pieced over about a year or so.

When I pieced the first one I had no idea where this was headed but an idea soon popped into my head. I spent part of yesterday putting the body together and now I just need to add borders.

I’m pretty pleased with how it looks so far. I really love scraps!

This is Mushroom the cat and his toy monkey Taffy. Made by my DD. He sleeps in an old mint tin and has taken up residence in my sewing room. Isn’t he the cutest?

What’s Working on Wednesday


Wow it’s the almost the end of July! I guess that means the summer is about half over. Besides lots of fabric shopping I can’t say I’ve finished much.

I finally found fabric and put a border on this


I also found a border for this quilt



and I finally ordered fabric to replace the ugly red curtain that has been over my kitchen sink. It was supposed to be temporary when we painted the kitchen about 3 years ago!


See I told you, lots of retail therapy!

I’m linking up with Quiltsy today.
