***************************************************************


This past week I have been up to quite a bit in the craft room. I got 5 things off my to do list..yahooo
With the garden slowing down I don’t feel the need to be out everyday doing something. The weather has been pretty ugly too which makes it easier to stay inside.

Today I am linking up with WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced and @The Needle and Thread Network.  Make sure you hop on over there and see what everyone else is working on too.

My September to do list 
Wonky Bee block – Waiting for my package to arrive.
Picking a Wonky bee block for me next month- I have come up with an idea using a charm pack I have. I have just enough to send everyone a package, but then not enough to test out the block...LOL
Bee Creative 2012 block – Woven block. I will admit to being petty. My August block hasn't arrived yet so I don't plan on starting this till I get it in the mail...I know that makes me a jerk, but I don't think it is fair otherwise so I am being jerky...lol I am sure it is at the post office right now...lol

  1. You have been really busy, and have some great things to show for it. You must be doing a happy dance over there.

  2. What little bit of a garden I had - all is done but a few tomato plants - so cleared out and ready for a mulch over. Glad you got some sewing time in. Really do love the colors in your Christmas quilt.

  3. I couldn't pick a layout when you published all those variations a couple of days ago. But the one you picked is lovely. The border finishes it off so beautifully. Lovely!!

    The Wee Bee arrow block isn't ugly, but the arrow effect got lost. I think if you took two of the arrows and pointed them out, it would fix it. I'll do a mockup and send it to you.

  5. after reading rita's comment I had to go back and look at that block again -- ah yes, now I see the arrows, so yes, the arrows got lost with those fabrics...

    A classic setting for the quilt and I especially like the border you are adding.
