see you September.........

September came and went. I feel as though I was in the twilight zone.

worked a little on my Thanksgiving apron 
it is stalled until I find the muslin to finish it off
they just used raw edges which I am not a fan of
but the matching potholder is finished!

worked more on my turkey runner
and sewed the parts for a second one
now to hand applique the turkeys on the ends
and get em done

then saw this one.......WHY do I even LOOK on pinterest.......
tell me WHY????  lol  love him too!

hand quilted this baby up. just need to find a lighter blue to bind
to get this done

started researching recipes to cook healthier for hubs
he is not a veggie fan so it has been challenging to say the least

sewed up this piece for a sewing machine mat........

and another blue..........

took out some Fall "decorations"

decorated the front yard a little..........
my one dollar mums and they are in full bloom now
and so pretty

more decorating

bought an avalanche for snow removal this winter...
PLEEEEEEEEZE dont let us get a TON.........

made a couple more bags for the box

sewed up a mystery table topper
now to back and batt and quilt it up

went to a quilt show and bought someone elses UFOs
(I didnt have enough of my own you know.... ***wink***)

and more stash enhancements on the cheap.
some lights and my fav blues......

purged out some unused books and patterns

and am taking care of hubs in between work and rearranging
my room to ready it for the Gracie quilter.
I really need to set it up and get going on my UFO pile
I asked for more hours in a day but the request was denied......
How did your September stack up to what you 
wanted to accomplish?
all in all I am pleased that I got as much done

Hi Dawn--So glad to hear your DH is doing better--recipes are an issue--we all seem to rely on the old standbys! Love how your turkey is coming along...I have never heard of a Gracie quilter either...?? hugs, Julierose
