Continuing on

I spotted Bonnie Hunter's cute pumpkin table runner a couple of weeks ago and saw that the pattern was half off!  What a deal.  So I ordered and downloaded and let it sit for a bit.  Then I started on the pumpkins and kept going until

WOOHOO!!  It's so cute and I love it though it's not quilted yet and that is NOT my forte.  I hate to screw it up at this point but have considered trying it on my own..we'll see.

Also got a few more Halloween row by rows done but more to go before I'm ready to put it together so will post those later.

Halloween rows

Another "SQUIRREL" caught my eye and I've been making Halloween row by rows.  Seven so far and 4 or 5 to go..MAYBE I'll get the rows together by this Halloween but definitely not the top.  Will just keep plugging away--








Grrr, can't find the picture for the one other made to date.  I will post with the next batch.

Row by row in process

I finally dragged out all my boat rows (with a few more to make) and laid them out to see where I am with this one.

Not really a good picture but what I need to do is sketch is out and see how the sizes fit and decide what more is needed.  These rows are, for the most part 9x36" so with verticals added to the right this puppy will be approx. 90X90.  I'm not a fan of square quilts so modifications will need to be made (one being 2 more horizontal rows and leave off verticals on the right).  That is IF my figuring is correct (math was NEVER a forte for me..ugh).  A few of these were pieced so nothing additional required but I've been working on the top stitching with clear/smoke where needed.  It's coming along slowly but hopefully in a month or so as I'm working on another stuff along with this; we all do that, right? 😄

Final rows of August

Since I posted a bunch of row by rows I completed the first part of August, figured I'd post the remaining ones done this month (since that's about all the sewing/quilting I've been working on).




This one I was debating on leaving the decorative aspect (a bear head and a moose head) off the mugs all the while not even noticing I'd left the coffee/hot chocolate outta the cup.  Good GRIEF!  Wound up putting all in/on the cup so really need another pic.  This will do for now.

Rowing

I haven't been posting very often but I have been doing a little sewing.  This is my fourth or fifth year to be involved in the annual row by row event.  I have LOTS of kits yet to be made and, at this point, no quilts to show for my efforts.  I have so many 'themes' going on over the years and each year there are at least some to add to those themes.  And EVERY year for at least the last two, maybe 3,  I've said I am NOT buying more kits.  But then I see some here and there that are cute and I cave.  Fortunately, I am getting closer to being able to complete 3 or 4 tops as the rows are made.

So, I decided I'd pop in to the old blog and share the rows I've made so far this month.  A few of my themes are beaches, boats, tepees, mountains, hot air balloons, camping, space and more.















Hopefully I'll get at least a couple of tops together before the end of the year!!
