However, I did manage three things in September that I am super proud of!
- Simply Solids quilt top - thanks to a mini weekend retreat with the #nintendoguild at the end of August where I made some advances on piecing this top together, I FINALLY managed to complete the top early in September! I hope I can get this finished before Christmas.
- I did some machine applique and made a Kip & Fig fox. This was for the front of a Michelle Pattern Grocery Bag that I made for my partner in The Fox Swap. I LOVE his eye and his cheeky grin, and I even love the combination of fabrics I used! This was a difficult one to not keep for myself!!!
- Diamonds in Diamonds was a pattern that I tested for the very talented Aylin-Nilya. I had not used templates before so this was out of my comfort zone but once I started I couldn't stop! This pattern has so many possibilities - a very exciting pattern indeed and I will be making another soon! I cut some of my precious Echino for this and I love how it turned out. Now to make this flimsy into a quilt!
September flew by at lightening speed and I can't believe we are nearly in the middle of October already! This must mean Christmas sewing season is upon us. I've made a list of things I plan to sew - have you?
Happy October - and Happy Thanksgiving to my family and friends in Canada.
