Update on WIP

My quilt top now covers the top of a king size bed. I'm thinking I will add 2 more rows of pineapple blossoms and then just 1 border to kind of frame it. I am hoping to have the top complete by the 31st of Oct. There I have made myself a 'to be completed' date. Now I feel obligated. I would like to get it finished so I can hopefully get it quilted....My fingers crossed XXXX.

Busy Time

September was very busy for me. I joined a quilt guild in my area and I am enjoying it. We only meet once a month but there is lots of inspiration there.
We have had so much rain here in Ky. the grass just won't slow down growing...sooo we just have to keeep on mowing......ugh...takes away my quilting and crafting time.....Our flowers have been beautiful......

Fall has arrived!

The leaves are turning beautiful colors and the weather is nice and cool. That means more time to quilt and knit. In Sept. hubby and I went to Yellowsprings, Ohio to Wool Gathering.. It was great. Lots and lots of roving and wool already spun, in beautiful colors.
