I know I know 
I am supposed to be working on the bear
I DID sew up the head.....
but I had green fabric and black fabric
RIGHT near me............
and I had to check it out
doe he look like Frank?

or a little like Grinch? lol

this was the plan
as a little Halloween surprise in the mail

now off to find some orange LOL

dont judge!

how time changes things

funny when you look back at pictures
you can see changes
like this early picture showing the purple
and no white

not a spec of it at all

and now this is the beautiful show.

that is kind of how it is with my UFOs too

I look back and go WOW

October to do

I forgot I had made these
I think I should just throw all my blocks and starts
in a huge rubbermaid tote and then 
make a kitchen sink quilt LOL
seems every corner I pull out to go through I 
find other things I forgot about
this was a test for a girl quilt to see if I 
could use up some pink and purple stash
and charms

I need to finish up a couple more mats for the cats
maybe Dunks and Pheebes would like pink and purple?

finish up some zippy bags that I had started

find backing and finish up at least one of these turkeys

find a border for this colorful lap quilt
it will keep someone nice and toasty this winter

make myself a stack more of these so I can 
throw out the very used ones

find the book with hockey Santa to finish up the black ones
the rest are done and in the Christmas box already

get back to this beauty and get THREE
of them done
yes I said THREE
I have 3 brothers
and my Dads will be bears
they will go well up at the cabin in Maine
where they hunt

here is one of my brothers. see?
 huntin, fishin and lovin every day

the turkey is calling me
I have to get him done.

and this guy has some hand work and some sewing 
and stuffing to be done
then shopping for a new bedpillow for
his tummy

this guy keeps taunting me
saying make me,............make me....
you know I am adorable
and three is not too many 
and  I would use some buttons

I " hear voices"

Halloween just may need a couple of these done
maybe to say Happy Halloween to my nieces?
we will see

and the candy cane binding on this needs to be done
a big list? yes
a lot to do? yes
can I do it?
time will tell.,............
what are YOUR plans for the coming months

Sept so far was productive

I sewed up some scrappy strips and put them into a 
container to play with later

I quilted up some for zippy bags

I made and gave away some baby hats
to keep someone s little head nice and warm

I found some UFOs and put them to the top
of the pile to finish

I sewed up some charm squares to use them up
ever buy something and later go why did
I get this?  c;mon.......you KNOW you have
me too!

I semi organized the stash at least 
er hm........SOME of it
what I can see I can use right? lol

I "gasp" threw away some things
under this trash was some patterns
and larger pieces
I hid them with the cuttings so I 
wouldnt go trash picking! whatever works, right?

I got one turkey runner further along ready
for back and quilting

I made myself some dishcloths

I started a Christmas gift that is almost done
for my great nephew
it is a tv pillow and I had made his Mom one
many years ago
she dragged it everywhere and I am hoping he will 
do the same

I took some cut pieces of dresdan and made a table runner
it just needs the binding

and Dunkin and I made a jelly roll race quilt top
guess I better get my Oct list ready as I have wandered a little from 
the plan LOL

but it feels good to have accomplished so much.
I hadnt thought I did

this week at the sewyouquilt ranch.....

I plan to move this to the complete stage

I may even find some Halloween colors to make these

and I will try and get the binding on this guy
that will make me feel like something got done

it is the jelly roll race

and so so fun.......
it is from the jelly roll called Lagoon  that I got a while back 
from Missouri Star quilt

I was wondering why I bought so many jelly rolls. hmmmmm   what did I want them for?  well the two plain white ones will be sashing........thats ok but what about the others?

I found one in my stash called Lagoon
and of course Jenny Doan the enabler had the youtube jelly roll race quilt above

so ............

I sewed the long row yesterday..........
and this morning I finished the top in an hour!  yep
I have a beautiful jelly roll quilt top in blues and greens and purples..........

I am in love..........

Am I bad????  similar colors to below only more teal and some greens too
