The glorious colors that we've been enjoying for the past couple of weeks will soon be over, especially with the rain that we're experiencing at the moment.
Is it any wonder that Autumn is my favorite time of the year?
With the cooler weather, it'll just be a matter of time until we start burning the stove in the kitchen which is Frankie and Ollie's favorite place to cuddle. In the interim, their favorite spot to catch a few zzzzzz's is on the sofa in the den just off the kitchen.
Remember this quilt?
I had finished it not too long before my hip decided to fracture. It was my original intention to add a machine appliquéd border but I've since decided against it. As of this morning, it is on it's way to my friend Mary of Quilt Hollow who is going to quilt an edge-to-edge design on it. Mary offered a special on her blog about a week ago and I decided that there's no time like the present to lighten myself of another flimsy!
And before I forget again, for those of you who asked, the name of the pattern is Glory Bound and is a design by Red Crinoline Quilts formerly Bonnie Blue Quilts.
I've been diligently working on a little quilt which I've designed and am making as a surprise gift for a friend. I can only show you a sneak peek because I know that she reads my blog.
I just finished machine sewing on the binding and as soon as I'm finished here, I'll continue hand stitching it down and it'll be done! I think she's going to be surprised!
I always try to make a little extra binding...
to add to my binding jar for those quilts that lend themselves to a scrappy, pieced binding.
It's getting pretty full so I'd better come up with a project soon!
See it there in the bottom right corner? It shares a shelf along with some of my other treasures that keep me company in my sewing room.
So until next time...
