It’s October all ready and I have been very busy. I have been working on Halloween table runners which are turning out cute but not ready for prime time yet. I have also been busy with embroidery for customer and for gifts. I have this habit of trying to do multiple projects at once and am at it again. I whipped together 40 batik nine patch blocks for a nine patch swap the week after I returned from Denmark. I knew about the swap before I left but did not think I had time to participate. While I was playing catch up on my email, I discovered that the group had extended the deadline by two weeks so now...I might just have enough time to pull it off. So when I started to look at fabric for my "Begining Quilt blocks" class, I decided that I had time and bought extra fabric. I thought it would never hurt me to practice a nine patch block or 40 nine patch blocks.
Now I am writing directions and getting ready. I am really looking forward to it. There is nothing better than teaching something new to someone. The look on some ones face when they “get it” brings a smile to my face!
Happy sewing until next time!
