The 100 Days Hustle

Today I came across an interesting idea (challenge) for helping to finish projects that may have been hanging around the sewing room a little too long and maybe win a prize! Marika with Live, Love, Laugh and Sew posted this: Have you heard about the 100 Day Hustle hosted by Kelsey ? She has challenged us to go through our to-do list, finish those projects to start the new year with a blank page. How great would that be ? She even has link-ups and prizes !!
So here I am joining another challenge with the hope of making a dent to my UFO pile!

This is my list of unfinished projects I would love to have finished before we welcome 2013.
1. 2nd granddaughters quilt

2. Friend's baby quilt (1st boy due in December)

3. Country Star Quilt

I'm going to stop there and  if when these are finished I can always add another project :)

So here goes the start of the next 100 days of being productive!!!!  WOOHOOO!!!!


A little peek!

Here is my sneak peek of my Leafs Make Me Happy blog hop entry.  I don't want to give it away before the exact day, but I did want to show a teeny weeny bit LOL  This blog hop requires a block between 10.5 and 12 inches using fall colored fabric.  This is an example of paper piecing of which I absolutely love to do.  I believe I got this pattern from

I Sewed!!!

You are not going to believe it!!! I actually sat in front of my sewing machine and SEWED this weekend!!!! 

Our 3 granddaughters were over for the weekend and the oldest was playing her favorite character Rapunzel.  She needed a cape that went over her head, so I reached for a dish towel (clean one) and used a safety pin to secure it. I know I know...a safety pin at her neck!!!!  It didn't look right or safe lol.  Sooooo I went into the sewing room and found some ribbon and sewed it right onto the dish towel!!!! It worked famously!! I was soo proud of myself LOL  This might be the start of something LOL

What did you do this weekend?

It's a new season!

Hello everyone.  Fall has got to be my most favorite time of the year.  I love the warm days and the cool evenings. I love the shadows the sun makes because it's lower in the sky.  I love fall colors like oranges, browns, tans, greens...

This weekend I will be changing my summer decor from blues and greens to fall decor of oranges and browns..  It always makes my home feel very cosy :)
I will also be starting on a new blog hop named Leafs Me Happy from October 1-10.  This will be my first sewing activity in a long while... I hope that it will motivate me to do more sewing/quilting projects.  Even if it's just to "start" them LOL    .....more on this later :)
