Running Behind

I am not sure how it happens but dang Daphne's birthday is in a few days and I have nothing ready. Can you believe she is going to be 3 on October 1st????

I know we are having a party at home on the 6th after a day of football. Beyond that I got nothing. Which means next week I will be on a CRAZY MAD DASH to organize an amazing party for my 3 year old. We have Minnie and Mickey Mouse theme in mind. Mostly because I have a lot of red, white and black on hand.

Watch out because this weekend I will be making a FABU Birthday Outfit!

Remember when we were all waiting for this?

Happy National Sewing Month!!!

Yep today kicks off the start of National Sewing Month. So of course I have a list of what I want to get done this month. Some quilting, handwork and clothes. What can I say I'm diverse.

Today I finished binding a ZigZag quilt that I will be teaching in Riverbank at the end of the month at A Quilter's Place. I did mine a little different from the pattern. Just to show some options.

I have been on the fence about joining in the Grandmother's Choice Block A Week. I think it would be tons of fun and there will be a lot of Women's History to learn along with it. BUT it is 49 blocks and then to put it together. Maybe if I start now I would have the top done in time for the Centennial in 2020.

Now I am putting boarders on Playful Posies. I took the class 2 weeks ago plus I greatly enlarged it and of course not according to the pattern. I had my own idea. I am hoping to start quilting it this month. I had a ton of fun in the class with Beth (the B in LizzieB Cre8ive) and my friend Bonnie, who got 2 baby size tops done.

And last but not least I have also been working on my first block of HocusPocusVille. Since I am at cheer practice 3 to 4 nights a week and a football game every week I needed handwork. So I keep it in my purse to work on every time I have a minute to take a stitch.
