SEPTEMBER

Oh dear this was a weird and difficult month
as we had another hurricane--
this one was named Irma--
Dawn and I fled to NY so was gone for 10 days--

We stopped in Hagerstown and seen Sunny and she took me to her quilt shop out in the country and I got to meet Charlie and he helped me pick out some Halloween fabrics--
(sad note here--Charlie passed over the Rainbow bridge 2 days later)




so here is the restart over on the Halloween mystery quilt top--
the fabrics I got at Sunny's shop where the orange print and the black with the bats print--
It's coming together
tops done now it is basted and I have started the hand quilting on it--

and I got these  done--
Sept color was orange



and I got more done on the Halloween door hanging--

There is alot of damage done down at the dock on the beach area and the bank--
sad--
and alot of the apts on the river side got water damage--all 4 floors--
Thankful to God that mine stayed dry--

AUGUST--

 lets see what did I work on here--
In the Patchwork bom I got the 10" one done and the 4 smaller ones made--
to 2 different patterns--one was probably Julys sets??


worked on putting these blocks into a top--
I am not sure I like this--but
I kept going--
then I did decide I did NOT like it--
and totally frogged all the strips off--
still have just the blocks left with the first outside borders on them--

Humm-

got the cat block done for this months color--
and started a pair of socks for Anne-
and here they are done--
and they were mailed to Anne for her birthday--

another block done for the Christmas bom--
and the second one for the month--

a baby sweater--
and I started a Halloween mystery quilt-
but do not like them--
oh well--back to the drawing board--
well--actually back to the quilt shop I go--

JUNE 2017

Lets see what did I do this month--
I changed the borders on this quilt--
Bought this cute display case from Frannie for $10
Got a couple more blocks made for the Christmas quilt--
I changed my mine at least 4 times one the fabrics for this one--
