The weather has changed here. I've had to add an extra blanket to the bed as our temps have dropped into the 40s at night. The daylight hours are shorter as well. I wish I lived in an endless summer world.
Our Sewing With Friends group just finished our last mug rug swap. I made one for Ida and I received one from Sara, This is the one I sent to Ida who lives in El Paso.
The pattern was from Quiet Play.
This is the cute mug rug I received from Sara.
I also neglected to post the beautiful hexie mug rug that I received from Irene.
Our next round of swaps with this group is going to be fabric postcards. We've had so much fun over the last few years doing a Round Robin quilt, a Row by Row quilt and our mug rugs.
With Halloween coming up, our daughter asked me if I would do Ghostbuster jumpsuits for the children. It's so nice to get asked with plenty of time to work on the costumes.
Yesterday was spent mending - very boring sewing in my opinion, but I have been working on a Valor Quilt. This was from a block that I liked from our Gridster Bee. It starts off with little flag blocks and grows as you add the stars around it.
The sashing comes next. The pattern can be found HERE.
We watched the five little ones for a few days and I managed to have some fun sewing time with the girls while the boys were busy building dominoes.
My Temperature Quilt is quite colorful this month with our highs and lows. I'll share it in my next post.
Farewell to September. I welcome a new decade of my life in October. I'll ring it in properly!
