I am still around, just super busy with life. I have been working 3 days a week this month. I am also organizing a silent auction for the parents association of our dance studio. both are taking up a lot of my time. boo hoo. In the evenings I am running the girls to their dance classes or soccer games/practices. We have some household changes happening too, again a time sucker!
After next week I hope to get back to my sewing machine and a bit of normal routine. I miss my sewing.
before all this business started I managed to get theses placemats finished for my mom! I just had to wait for them to get across Canada before I posted them. Right mom!!
well back to working on auction stuff and tidying the house.

It all started when I saw a wonderful pile of leaves outside my kitchen window. (which have now blown away) We are finally having a beautiful sunny fall. Most of the leaves have now fallen but the golden hue in the valley with the sporadic green of evergreens is still beautiful to look at. These colours inspired me to make a fall quilt. (like I need another project")
My "leaves" were these bits and pieces of fabrics. Inspired by Bonnie Hunter's crumb piecing method. (www.quiltville.com)
Some blocks became even bigger as I grabbed some strips and kept adding.
I am winging it as I go, I don't know how this will turn out. Not sure of the size, the lay out or anything.
Kind of like a pile of leaves blowing around, who knows how they will land! Stay tuned to see how this turns out!!!
