October OMG

Can you believe it’s October already? I sure can’t. The weathers here is still mild, the leaves are just starting to fall and there is just a skiff of snow high up on the ridges.

As of tomorrow it will be one month since my surgery so my goals for the month will have to be realistic since I still have 5. Ore weeks of being in a sling full time. 🥴

I have my class next weekend at the Guild. It’s really exciting this year. I have several of my regulars back again and 2 new quilters starting out. I have patterns printed and my bin of fat quarters for them to choose from. I love teaching these ladies and by the end of winter they will both have finished a Sampler Quilt and learned to do a QAYG method for finishing.

So my first goal was to prepare for a new year of teaching.

My other goals for the month are:

– finish knitting my shawl I started post surgery.

– cut out my next four quilts that patterns are printed and fabrics are pulled for.

Timeless Treasures Fabrics for Quilt 1
Possibilities for Quilt 2
The start of Quilts 3 & 4 (2 baby quilts)

– keep working on sewing hst’s and 4 patches from my scraps. Play with the pieces to start designing a new scrappy quilt.

– keep up with exercising, trying not to overdo it and don’t let myself dwell on the things I can’t do. 🥴. Try not to be short with DH when he nags me to sit down.

– get ready to work the polls on Our federal Election Day. It will be Oct.21,2019 and I am not working the advance polls this year. I checked back in my records and I have been working both federal and provincial Elections for 32 years! I do enjoy doing my civic duty, but the 14 hour days might be getting to be a bit much for me. DH insists I should retire.

All in all, I think it’s a doable list since there is nothing too major on the list. I will have to see if any squirrels visit or demand some attention!

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you all are having fun playing with fabric and fondling it for me 😉 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Hi Carol! I think you are amazing and that you r.o.c.k. Teaching a class with your arm in a sling, and prepping for several quilts leaves me speechless. Plus working on Election Day, too?! That is what I’d like to do once I retire – volunteer at the polls. I can understand why DH nags a bit with this kind of list. So, please be kind to yourself and remember that when you are resting your body is able to heal. It takes a lot of work to do that, and when you are pushing your self to do things, that takes away from healing energy. {{Hugs}} I sure can understand your impatience, though. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Hi Roseanne. Trust me. Naps are very frequent happenings in my life. Teaching recharges my batteries by being able to share the pleasure of playing with fabric. My students are so amazing and enthusiastic it can’t help but make me smile. Working the Election is always inspiring. The last few have had so many young first time voters coming out that it makes me proud of this younger generation and the interest they are taking in our world. So all in all I am the lucky one I think. 😉 Carol
