How's it going? I love this time of year. Cooler temperatures, beautiful colors - fall is my favorite season! My mom and I drove to Wisconsin yesterday to visit with some family members at their annual fall "booya". It was a crisp autumn day and the food was delicious. We had a nice time.
I have spent more time reading blogs this past week than I have spend stitching! There are a couple of very tempting sampler projects out there that are calling my name though.
The one that I can't get out of my head is Mary Allen. Terri/Chocolates for Breakfast has it pictured in her blog header; Laurie at Corgi Cottage is working on it and doesn't have too much more to go; Margaret/Days of a Sampler Lover is stitching it too and we know that with her smoking needles she will have it finished in no time; and one more Mary Allen finish - check out Robert's blog, A Gentleman's Samplings. I know I have a lot of projects in the works right now, but how can I resist this one?
I've also signed up to receive the La D Da mystery sampler; I'm just too much of a La D Da fan to pass this one up. I know, I know, I haven't even finished my last mystery sampler yet! I think next year's challenge will be to finish up some of the WIPs I have started this year!
So, while there hasn't been a lot of stitching going on, I do have a couple of pictures to share with you. Remember the quilt top that I shared with you last weekend? I used the scraps to make a table runner. I had some additional fabrics from the same line that I added to it. I used the "quilt as you go" method. It was quick and easy.
And on the stitching front - I'm working on Blackbird Designs Tis the Season. Sorry, I didn't take time to iron it!
That's all I have for you today. Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!
