Absent but still busy!

 Yes I have been gone from my blog. I took a job and it takes a lot of my time .
The upper photo is of a mug rug trade I was in this last month.
 This was a quilt for some friends new great grand son. They ask me to make for them. Each block is something in the family's life. Ruth picked out the images and I made them into quilt blocks. They picked the colors . They were very happy with it.
DD Jennie and I have been making pie carriers. this is just 2 of many.
 Jennie likes Halloween so she made table runners. This is one of them. I get to do the bindings on them.
 This is 2 more table runner Jennie made.
 This is my mini quilt for a trade I was in last month. I called it Morning Song.
And 1 more table runner Jennie made for the quilt shop. I think the Quilters Candy Shop  had kits for sale.

Working has cut into sewing time. I am sewing quilts for me kids and Grand kids. 10 in all so sooner or later you will see photos of them all.

A little of this and that!

 I made 2 more round place mats for a gift to a friend. I also made a skinny pinny that will fit in front of the sewing machine and hold pins as you work.  out of the left over scraps from the place mats.
 I also made a small quilt ( 10 1/2"sq.)  Missouri Star Quilt pattern tutorial I reduced it by 1/2 .
Last I had to try a origami folded butterfly. My flicker group A Crossed the Pond  are doing them this month.
Fall is in the air. The seasons are changing. I love the cool nights. But not looking forward to winter. I hope we have a very long Fall!
Keep stitching! Flicsha

Disappearing Hour Glass

 At our last Orchard quilters meeting we did Disappearing Hour Glass blocks.
I made 6 blocks and miss cut one. Hate it when that happens!
 So I made a table topper with 4 of them and a small table topper with one. Then I used the mistake and made it into a basket. The block was a jinx I meant to put the pieced on the inside so  the boarder I added would turn down. Well I reversed it . Now I have a whimsical basket! Best of all I don't have to sew 4 buttons on the 4 turned down sides. I like the points!  Some times mistakes are fun!
I am not sure if I will keep the table toppers.  Maybe they are Christmas gifts?

OH Baby!

 Hi All! Here is the baby quilt for a gift to my good friends grand daughter's baby shower. It will be Deb's first great grand child. They have a Giraffe them for the baby's room  He will be called Heath Lee.
 scrappy burp clothes.
 I made them a changing pad. They can pop it into the D- bag. for a change any where. Vinyl on one side and fabric on the other.
 I took Deb a set of 4 place mats. She loves yellow and she has green walls .
Last weekend was a 2 baby showers in 2 days. And a 3 1/2 hour trip each way. It was a over night to C.B. Iowa where both showers took place.

All ways sewing!

 This is a disappearing 4 patch I made for my DD Jennie. It will fit on her round antique table she got from her Grandmother .
 We made 20 of these. We got the Idea and the rule from Missouri Star Quilt Company.
I am going to make them for Christmas. I will send these instead of cards.
 Jennie and I have 2 baby showers this week end. I made a quilt for one of them out of the animal baby fabric so we did bibs out of the Left overs. Then Jennie thought  they needed Halloween bibs also.
I also made burp pads and changing mats for both showers. Photos when I finish the quilt binding and my camera charges up.

Catch up!

It's catch up time. Here are a few off the things I have been working on .
Left over scraps of quilted fabrics. I use them for little pin C's.
I made some very little pinch bowls from 5" or smaller left over sq's.
I did this as a gift for a quilter that is having surgery soon.
This is my Jennie stool. I have a green one so when I got this stool at a G-sale I made one pink for her.
I received this from a swap I took part in . Thanks to my swap partner  Catherine for the sweet needle book and gifts.
Until next time Keep Quilting and Sewing!     Flicsha
