Continuing to purge.....


It is not easy to pick and choose which fabrics to save and which to donate. But after a VERY time consuming amount of time, I have narrowed down my stash to what can fit in my new Expedit ( and one tub ....not proud of that, but I just have a hard time letting go)!!!!

There are lots of books too......quilters can sure become collectors of TOOO much stuff!!!!


I found WAY to many projects that I have never finished....better get moving on this one. Word is out that Santa will be filling his sleigh in no time!!!


And since I was in such a Christmas mode ( and since I felt I deserved a treat for all my hard work) I bought this DARLING quilt book.

Best part is....you can use up LOTS of scraps, so I have been cutting lots of greens into squares, and pulling out more stash for the applique.


But then my designer gene kicked in and I thought "why not a Fall version"....so I have been cutting lots of my Fall stash too. Instead of stockings I am picturing Pumpkins and Fall leaves.
So easy to pick and choose my fabrics now that I have them in orderly cubbies!!!!

SEW far there has only been one pumpkin on my mind....so I made her a cute jumper. Did I mention that she has two bottom teeth and actually DOES look a bit like a pumpkin.
She is eating solid foods too...so I made a couple of "towel bibs with applique". She is one messy eater...but so darn cute.

I am hoping the cooler weather and bit of rain puts me into a Fall decorating mode. Still have seashells and sail boats decorating my porch...guess I refuse to believe that summer really is over!!!!

It's over. Embrace the tea weather. Anne of Green Gables and pumpkin bread are calling our name!
