Oh it's time to pick out a new goal...so many possibilities.

I wasn't able to finish my goal last month but I'm gonna choose another goal.  To finish the quilt for my bed.  This is just at the binding stage.  Hand binding.

Yep...it's gonna be a lovely one.

Very much enjoying girls weekend with my college and later friends.  The core of us met 20 years ago. Wow saying that makes me feel old. :) Binding away and maybe 1/2 way done on the monster #madeincherry quilt


Many thanks to Vicki of Orchid Owl Quilts for longarming this monster.

October: A Lovely Year of Finishes - Finishes Party

 Happy end of October.

So fun to travel for fun and {sigh} work.

Super excited to have fall here in the Pacific Northwest. It's time to get to quilting more and more. I was able to hand-stitch some, not all, of the binding on my largest quilt ever.  Be in Portland when they had nearly 2" of rain in a 24-hour period.  And fog was surrounding us this morning {I may not have seen that as I slept in ohhhh so much}

Melissa from Sew BitterSweet Designs and I are excited to see how's A Lovely Year of Finishes is going for you even with our busy times.  Be sure to go check out Melissa and her awesome finish!

Oh it's time to pick out a new goal...so many possibilities.

Since I actually finished my goal last month and finished three other projects. 
I'm still going to choose something easy.  

This extra work and throw in 2 weeks of an infection and I'm kinda beat down to the ground.

This month I'm going to finish the quilt top of my Metro Rings (pattern by Sew Kind of Wonderful)  with Kate Spain 'In from the Cold'

Oh how I missed sewing.  I just had to zip up some #metroringsquilt blocks pattern and #quickcurveruler by @sewkindofwonderful with @katespain fabric. Love some gingerbread smiles


I have everything cut out it's just the process of adding one background and trimming.
