I'm back!

Ooops, I missed last week's update. Time is just flying by too fast!! The good news is that I have had time to visit the sewing cave.

These are August's "Civil War Chronicles" blocks.
This is a stitchery project I finished during the week. It was quick and easy. I haven't decided yet if I am going to frame it or turn it into a pillow.
Here is my "Witches Boot" all stitched up. It was so much fun using different stitches and coloring the fabric. I look forward to another project like this one day.
I met Beth and Nancy last weekend at "The Orange Quilt Bee" and they helped me pick out fabrics to finish it off. I can't wait to get it quilted and hang it up for the fall.
Yesterday I made a mini quilt. I plan on making many more of these so I can put in ............
my new caddy! I think it is the cutest thing!!! Sharon's hubby makes them and she sells them on her site. I can't wait to fill her up with my mini quilts.
That's all I have for today. I did get a quilt returned that I sent to Linda a while back. She did a phenomenal job on it. I can't wait to show it off! I will try to get a binding on it ASAP.

I think the candy corn from the witches boot are the cutest things I've ever seen! Good job on getting both stitchery's done so fast.

As always, your CWC blocks are divine!

I've been thinking about ordering a red caddy....it would match my little red sewing box.

Deb said...

I wondered what you've been up to!! Wow, quite a lot. It amazing me how much you always get done. Love those CWC blocks and you always put me to shame when I see them. :) Love your stitcheries and your little quilt too. And I might have to spring for one of those caddies! I just love them. Give me an excuse to make up all those minis I've been wanting to do, right?

The blocks turned out great and both stitcheries are fabulous! Love the candy corn flowers on Witches Boot. The caddy is a nice idea, many years ago my Dad made one to hold my garden tools, I love it.

Look at you go! If you get a chance, please send a little bit of that mojo my direction. :)

The Halloween boot turned out so cute! And what a great mini quilt-- the box seems like the perfect display spot.
