October WIP

This month I’ve been working on a cross stitch (shock!) Here is my progress on Bent Creek: Snapperville so far. It’s coming right along.

I’ve also been quilting my little Schnibbles Joy Luck. This little Halloween quilt needs to be done before Halloween. I’m trying some fancy-schmancy free motion quilting on it.

The Hexagon quilt has 3 rows completed. These triangles are a pain to work with, but the result is pretty cool don’t you think? It took me an hour to do ONE row. I got to be best friends with my seam ripper, holy moley! That’s okay though, we all have to learn sometime haha!

I have basted my second “quilt from my stash” quilt also, that is patiently waiting for me to quilt it. Sorry I don't have a pic of it right now.

And I wanted to say Thank You to Denise of “My Life in Quilts”. She chose my blog for the Sunshine Award! Awww! How nice. I’d like to pass this on to some of my other favorite blogs as of late. Here are my regular reads if you are interested.

I LOVE your "Snapperville" and all your projects in progress! You really motivate me to get something done...My friend's 100 year old grandmother--who is still knitting for charity, by the way!--says the difference between a good seamstress and a poor one is the seam ripper--so you are in good company!

Hi Heather, Love how you're quilting your Joy Luck - the Halloween theme is so cute (I should probably say spooky - LOL)! Love the hexagons - the fabrics you used are awesome, I think it will all be worth it in the end! Bent Creek: Snapperville is coming along great! I've yet to start my Bent Creek Snappers "months" - which idea, of course, came from your blog (along with lots of other ideas)! See why I gave you some Sunshine! o:)
