Hi everyone! Thank you for the positive comments, you made my day

I'm loving the descriptions of the various Halloween projects people have on the go. I have a stacked pumpkins wallhanging I'd like to do one of these days...

WMUTeach - I feel your pain! Hopefully it won't take too long to remedy - its a fab top, I love the colours

BeckyBoo1 - I have never gotten the hang of fork pins, maybe my issue is that they aren't fine enough

So far I've managed to cut out and Heat'n'Bond down my October penguin (needs to be stitched in place to finish the block - plus a tiny bit of embroidery for this month's block - been a while since I've done any of that!!), I've also de-papered the edges of 6 stars (they are EPP'd) in order to square them up and frame them with the green/grey vine fabric. So far I've framed 2 and am absolutely *loving* the way it looks. So am working more on that today (takes longer than you'd think!)

Happy Quilting

Got an entire block finished with the hand quilting last night. Now I'm hoping to get this beast from two years ago basted this morning so it has a hope of being finished this month.

Just see this post this morning, haven't had time to sew yet, but will start the pumpkinpatchbc penguin October block and then maybe take the first hand stitches in a Panda baby quilt this afternoon. It isn't very bright out as some of the smoke has crept back up here, but will get out for a nice walk before settling in to stitch. Enjoy your day everyone!

No sewing at all for me this weekend, yesterday I helped DD price things for a yard sale she is having soon. Today I'm packing for a nice fall break camping trip. Good work everyone! See you next time!

No sewing for me yesterday or Friday. Today I made some good headway on quilting the borders for the big butterfly. Taking a break for now, but hope to get more done later this afternoon.

I enjoy reading all of the posts. No sewing yet for me today. A wonderful reason for no sewing though as I attended the baptism of my only grandchild. I can’t post pics because they only do Instagram.

I have one more diagonal seam on my UFO. I will be adding borders after I trim the top. I’m thinking I may be able to do floating points. 🤞

I havenít sewed yet today because getting laundry started and tidying the house took priority this morning. Iím just eating my lunch before I swap laundry one more time and then I will be able to sew. IĎLl be starting on fixing the seams on the top that needed fixing. If Iím fortunate enough to finish them today, I will attach the borders and glue baste two quilts. We shall see.

Well it looks like a lot was accomplished this weekend. I discovered I needed to make some charity quilts so planned out a couple to work on this week. See you all next month! And I’ll try to put the thread in the correct place next time 😄
