Fall...

Fall is definitely here.  It is so cold out this morning it is shocking when you step out the door for the first time. I love fall, but the weather has been so odd this year I guess I'm not quite ready for it yet.  And where have I been?  Well, school has started, soccer has started, and I guess I wasn't quite ready yet for all the homework and running that goes with all of it.  We spent quite a happy summer at home this year and it takes a bit to get back into the routine of it all.

Here are my WiP for this Wednesday...


Here my Farmer's Wife blocks and fabrics sit.  I'm waiting for the sale on the rest of the templates from Marti Michell.  Once I receive those, I will be off and running again.  I have 8 of 111 blocks completed.


Ah yes, the Honeycomb quilt.  I haven't given up on this one yet.  I have all my 1/2 hexagons with an adjoining triangle on them, and I just need to sit and fight sew them into strips.  I think it all has to do with how you press them.  I'm hoping they go together much easier once I figure out the best way to press.


I have been working on my Vignette Mystery quilt.  I have most of the hanky linen cut, I just needed to find the right fabrics for the other embroidery blocks.  I think I have found them and hopefully will be stitching soon on them as the 4th issue of Vignette magazine should be here any day!


Still been working on the Vignette hexie quilt too.  I have 66 of 140 flowers done.  Over the weekend I cut more hexies out and am planning to baste Friday during my son's soccer game. :)


Yep, another pile of fabric.  This one should go together quickly (I hope).  It is an easy piece and should go together with lightening speed...HA!  I decided I needed a project that I could start and finish in a short period of time...as it seems I like quilts with hundreds of blocks (see above). 

This Friday is the September FNSI...join us...I have plenty to work on, it is cool cold outside, and its the perfect time to work on something warm and cozy.  I'm also linking with WiP Wednesday.  Happy Stitching!  --Kristen
