The Inspiration of Autumn

With all the changing colours of the season, your quilt is going to reflect the beauty of autumn. Here is the progress of your visions

Tumbling blocks like falling leaves!

These lovely fabrics arrived from Arizona. I am so pleased with this selection.

This should make you feel like your jumping into a pile of freshly raked leaves.
Ready to set up on the frames.

With the Cooler Weather on its Way

I've been working on this quilt to add to my layers. I still need a couple more borders to make this a full size quilt, but coming together quite nicely so far.
I love the burgundy and blues combination.

Final borders added and ready to set up on the frames.

Crochet Spiral Beaded Necklace. I see them all the time now.

I  went on an adventure and tried my hand at making the crochet spiral beaded necklace. I keep seeing them all over the place and admiring them, I thought that would be so cool to make. It looked easy enough when I watched the online tutorials. mmmhmmm. It probably took me 20 tries to get it started, but once I got about an inch into it, the whole process had me so amazed and pleased with the results.

Lettuce just see if this works:

Why do I ever question you, oh Wise One?!? For real? Of course, why else would I tell you. So my dear sweet mother randomly tells me that I can grow my own romaine lettuce just by letting the bottom part sit in a bit of water and change the water every couple days. So here you have it, the first one was placed in on Monday and the second one on Wednesday. Today is Thursday and already I am amazed at these little guys. They were cut straight across and now look at them.
Romaine Lettuce is growing in my house!
This is more fun than watching Sea Monkeys grow, because you get to eat it afterwards!

Sunday, call it a week since first one started,  lettuce  peeking over top of glass.

Here is a sneak peek at the next quilt. I'll probably put a bit of blue sashing around the blocks before piecing them together and putting on the final border.

Long Time Favourite

I just started cutting out the pieces and am anxious to start sewing these little girls in place for my next quilt. Sunbonnet Sue is such a timeless treasure that has been on my "want-to-do-one-day" list.
A few Sunbonnet Sue blocks waiting to be  sewn in place.

Here are the girls all together. I embroidered a different little design on each bonnet; ribbon, flowers, zigzags, etc.
