A Recap of October And What's on the List


For as busy as I was last month... there isn't a whole lot that
got accomplished in my sewing room.
One of the two things I finished in October was
another quilt from the Scrap Basket Sensations book.
I love it in the Christmas colors and with the polka dot borders.
I used nothing but stash fabric too!
I enjoyed making this pattern again.

My only other accomplishment was a Schnibbles quiltlette.
I call it T and the Ladybug Picnic.
A few things that I didn't get done but would like to
finish up with is.......
the binding on this Vintage Dishes quilt.

I have been making blocks for the sew along with Kellie over at
Charming Chatter. I actually have made most of the blocks now!
I have this wonderful bundle of Nine Dot and I have been waiting and watching
all of the different versions of Swoon... and I think I finally have the combination
I want here. The perfect match for me!
I have loved seeing all of the different quilts being made out there in blogland.
I especially liked a Halloween version I saw.
But this is the fabric that really did make me Swoon!

Yes, I have another Schnibbles started... yes, I am addicted.
This one is Full House, but I will be calling it
Beach Houses.

I actually found a notepad (buried) on my cutting table...
looks like this is what I had in mind plus a couple more.
I think that must be a note to myself for projects that include
November as well as December.
So much to do, and not enough time to do it in.
