It's Fresh Sewing Day at Lily's Quilts and time for a fresh start chez Bobbin.
I'm happy to say goodbye to October: it was a hectic, busy, stressful month...and in just a few days time my book manuscript will be out of my hands. I can hardly wait!! November promises to be a happy month.
Today is a day of reckoning...so what did I stitch up in October? Not nearly as much as I would have liked, and certainly no big finishes, but a few little things nevertheless.
I started (another) handsewing/English paper piecing project, perfect for the conference travel we had to do at the beginning of the month:
I'm up to 15 hexagons in this project, and I am going to keep working (slowly) on it...on those rare evening when my hubby and I can watch television!
In October I made a few blocks for the Farmer's Wife QAL, imperfectly pieced on my 1947 Singer Featherweight, but cheerful nonetheless:
And finally, a few days ago I jumped into Lynne's Dead Simple QAL by piecing a Little Apples charm pack with a few coodinating stash fabrics:
I have some Little Apples yardage and Riley Blake red patterned flannel on order for a border and backing fabric, respectively. The end product will be a nap quilt for the littlest one.
Now to some gratuitous Halloween cuteness (October ended with a bang!).
Here is Frida as a pink bunny rabbit:
Her Daddy was a magician:
And her best friend dressed as Ramone (our black cat):
I hope November brings us all peace, joy and creativity!
