New leaf!

Fall is in the air here. The nights are cool and the days are warm but not to hot.I actually got some sewing done last night. I got a new magazine yesterday at the grocery store. Fon's & Porter's Quilting Celebrations. It was full of good things to make you think and yes SEW!
I was at the $$ store and got this candle for $ .75 . That started it. Came home looked at the book and thought how nice it would look with the leaves for another project in the book. A few hours later this is my version of the mini candle mat . It's just 12"'s in diameter. I made it for a raffle basket at my TOPS group . Now I wish I could keep it. But I all ways think I can make another one if I really want one.

This is my 1st attempted in over a year in my Yahoo group called Abstract Challenge.The word was Rhythm I am a little rusty at doing my abstracted work. The best part was the rhythm of my sewing machine as I was sewing . I love my machine!!!
Taking care of my DA Gladys and DU Al has been a hand full for over a year. DU Al is in a A-Living home now and is doing well. But about the time he went in My DA got bad and her health isn't good. She keeps me hopping!! Going to Doc. visits and test and so on and so forth.

Finishing some UFO's

I had 10 of these in stages to finish from Christmas 2009. DD Jennie sent them in one of my many boxes of things to Florida for me to work on . I am now in Arizona and finally getting around to finishing them. They will be handy for small gifts with a mug or coffee cup!
This is going to be a quilt some day . It was a block of the month at the Quilters Candy Shop were my DD Jennie works a few years ago. It's with Thangles for 1/2 sq. triangles.
It's called "All Most Amish".I only have 3 out of 12 blocks done so it may take me a while to get it finished.
