Here it is! My crazy wool pincushion is done and the drawing is just days away now.
There is definitely a common theme in all the fabrics I am choosing these days, but fall colors have always been my favorite anyways. I am making my Alzheimer's donation quilt out of these. The pattern is called 'Remember' from Mountain Patchwork and it will be 12 little bowties with embroidery in the muslin border.
I have made some progress on my reorganization efforts. Two more buckets of fabric are folded and put in shoe boxes. Yes, I went shoe shopping today with my daughter and came home with a comfy pair of sandals. We wear those year round here. I was embarrassed to find that I had two fat quarters of the same fabric. Not once, but twice! Maybe this organization effort will stop that from happening again. Dream on!
I joined Kathy Tracy's yahoo group sometime back and volunteered to be a hostess for a maple leaf block exchange. It will be hard to part with these. I love the colors and can hardly wait to receive mine from the other participants so I can put them into a table topper/runner. I have a few ideas already. Anyone seen any good settings for these blocks?
And boy did I score at Target yesterday. I came home with this rug for under the sink in my kitchen for only $17.98. Found it on the clearance rack. It looks like a penny wool rug to me and is very thick and cushiony for standing on our stone floors.
Hope everyone had a safe holiday weekend...Cheryl
