September Summary

A lot happened in September, and for those of you that don't follow me on social media, here are few things that you may have missed...

HIKING- Bill and I took Boomer on weekly hikes on our local Greenway Trail. It's mostly flat with a few very big hills, and I managed to make it farther each week. Woohoo!

ORGANIZING- I went through the house and cleaned out more closets, organized the pantry and few kitchen cabinets and refolded and stacked quilts in every corner. Where did all of these quilts come from? Hmmm.

MUG RUGS- I made these simple mug rugs with tumbler mugs and marshmallows from my recent scraps of Tilda and grunge. I gave them to my co-workers for being so tolerant of my antics at work. They put up with a lot and we laugh a LOT but I like reminding them how special they are to me.

SUPPLIES- I ordered some more thread colors and thread charts from Superior for my longarm. I have lots of colors to choose from, but the sale was amazing and I wanted something autumn inspired.

QUILTING- I quilted 3 quilts for charity and a quilt for a friend. I love trying new designs and choosing just the right shade of thread. I have a couple quilts coming to me this week and I can't wait to quilt them!

FOOTBALL- Football season started and I grew up in New Orleans LOVING my Saints, and now I can't help but love the Falcons, so the overtime game that was a nail biter the whole time was amazing and exhausting! We had great seats on 48 yard line behind the bench. It was so fun to be so close and to have sideline access. WOW.

CLEAR TOTE- I needed a clear bag to take to the game and didn't like any of the ones I found online or at the mall, so I made my own. For less than five dollars I sewed this bag up and it was perfect. The straps were long enough to allow the bag to hang over my seat armrest without touching the stadium floor. It also gave me plenty of room for carrying essentials plus a sweater when the weather gets cooler.

I've also been busy working on the upcoming steps of the Sew Your Stash Along and doing some pattern work, as well as making plans for Market!

IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE AT FALL MARKET please let me know! I would love to meet up with you in person and say hi!

Happy October,
