This And That!

I finished a project that I started in the summer.   This delightful pattern is one of the 5 Fat Quarter patterns published by Jedicraftgirl and Gigisthimble this year.  I loved the patriotic pineapples and simply had to make one.  I made a table runner using the same pattern.  

I finish a top, make the binding and get the backing sorted out and then I hang it on a hanger in the "to be quilted" pile.  Sometimes this leads to quilt tops not being quilted for ages.  I really wanted to get this one quilted as I had the perfect place to hang it.  So, it jumped ahead in the queue!  

My dear friend Joy and I attended Stitchfest Tx this July.  We give each other a gift every day of the retreat.  This sweet kit is one of my lovely gifts and I felt like a quick project one afternoon and decided this would be perfect.  Isn't it sweet?

Sarah over at Sarah Did It! is hosting a temperature afghan sew along.  I am still playing catch up because I was late to the party, but here is my end of August block.

I write the date and the average temperature for the week on the stem.  

Meanwhile, fall is sort of happening outside.  These Maples border our property and are dressed in their fall finest.  So pretty.

I have a lily which seems to be a bit confused about the seasons.  I'll take it though as there are not too many flowers around at the moment.  

I hope you are all having a wonderful week and getting some sewing done.  

Love
Chantal

  3. I can see why your patriotic pineapples jumped ahead in the queue. It's a delightful pattern and I like it done in the red, white and blues. Well, if I was doing a temperature flower today it would include snow and about 20°. No flowers blooming today, at least outside.

  8. I made the cute pineapples, too, when I first saw it! Love it! It just needs binding which I'll get done sometime this winter. One of the cutest projects ever!
