Fresh Sewing Day October

Wow how is it October already! Time flies. Fall is upon us, which means it is my favorite time of year! I love all the colors and smells of fall - vibrant oranges, deep purples, the aroma of cider. It's a little bit different living in California, but I will always remember growing up near Chicago with the crisp days of autumn marking the start of school and football season.

September was a really busy month for me at work, but I am happy to say I accomplished quite a lot in my free time! Maybe I work more efficiently when I'm busiest. Yarn projects made a comeback since I traveled a lot, and I got some "must do" projects done like the large quilt and baby gifts.

October is going to be one of those times when work is really going to take priority, so it will be interesting to see what I get done. I did join up with the 100 Day Hustle, so I already have a list of projects I'd like to finish. I'd at least like to start cutting pieces for our Amsterdam quilt and baste/start the hand quilting on my Modern Medallion quilt.

  4. Hi Alia

    I'm here from the Small Blog Meet, it's lovely to meet you.
    You've been so busy, and you're doing the Medallion quilt too!! It looks wonderful, you're so much further on than me. I'm going to add you as a contact on Flickr too - if that's ok.
