First of all Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian readers. Hopefully your weekend was full with family, laughter, lover and good food.
My weekend started with teaching On Saturday at my monthly group at our local Guild. I’m excited to have one new Quilter and one novice this season. Both of these ladies amazed me with their progress. Traci is on block 5 of her Sampler Quilt. I get to really challenge her with the block patterns I am providing her. She already knows that her final monthly blocks will include EPP, Applique and a curved block. I know she will be able to do them with no problems. Laurie has been quilting making square blocks, layering her quilt and timing it. She has taught herself pinwheel blocks and I am hoping that I can teach her basic QAYG methods. I am preparing a class for our Guild Members to make project pouches with clear windows, zippers, or Velcro closures. It’ll be fun to see which members do the bags which way.
I will admit that it was tiring to actually have a “normal day”. Since Saturday I have just been puttering around home, cleaning, organizing and restructuring my sewing space. It seems to be a seasonal thing for me doing the furniture move 🥴. I think I do it most spring and autumns when I am doing my “spring cleaning”. This year I am also doing another purge of my stash. Laurie doesn’t work out of the home, so I am going to see if I can find fabric to contribute to her non existent stash.
My project goal for this month is to keep reading Carole at My Carolina Home’s blog this month. Every year at this time she celebrates Autumn with her Autumn Jubilee. She has created a month’s worth of projects for us from quilting and hand sewing, stamping and almost every other kind of craft you can think of. I’m sure you will find at least one project to do if you check her blog.
The other news is that I did my draw for the bundle of fabric from my personal giveaway on the Once Upon A Story Row Along, hosted by Marian Pena. I have emailed the winner and hope to be able to announce the name when I do my post tomorrow for the final post on the Once Upon A Story Row Along. I had so much fun ready posts and collecting patterns to make my next great granddaughter’s quilt with a “Nursery Rhymes and Fables theme”.
