September is here..well yes it is the 10th today.. I know, so we are a third of the way through the month already!!! This a big birthday month for our family. We have 8 birthdays to celebrate this month! All Virgo's except my son who is on the cusp..not sure what that means, but some horoscopes have him as a Virgo and some a Libra. Well I really don't put much stock in the horoscope thing but find it sort of interesting.
Anyway, since my last entry,where I said that I needed to finish some abandoned projects. I have finished a lap size project. This quilt used charm squares and I worked on it at the annual retreat that I take with my small group, Hen Party.
I finished piecing all the squares together into a top, but put it away before the borders were on. I just finished cutting and sewing on the borders this morning and I really like this quilt. It was stepping out of my usual palette, and I enjoyed revisiting the early 70's with these very retro colors. I never thought I could look at avocado green ever again, after having a completely avocado kitchen in our first house. I was so over that color when we moved, but I think I can handle it now in small doses.
This fun and easy project will most likely be a Christmas gift for some lucky (?) family member.
Ofcouse I must now machine quilt it and that seems to be another step in the process where I procrastinate. Well I am a little closer to completion, at least.
I have posted a cute skirt I made for my granddaughter, Scarlett, for her 3rd birthday. It was so easy and cute. I found the pattern on a blog called Jane's Apron.typepad.com. It is called Twirly Skirt..I will be making more, for sure.
I hope every one is having a good month and stay tuned for more progress on those UFO's.
