September was a month full of making bee bocks and swap items! And of those most of them were stars!! I tackled paper piecing and even took a class in embroidery with Aneela Hoey herself. My favourite items were the Zakka Nesting boxes in Blitzen Christmas fabric and a variety of linen fabrics. I am getting prepped for Christmas at a slow and steady pace :)
I am most proud of making a paper pieced star [ET Phone home] for a bee block. I was terrified of making that block so at the 11th hour I buckled down and just got on with it and miracle of miracles didn't cry while making it! And it actually looked pretty good when it was finished. What a relief! I also loved the end result of making the Open Wide pouch - a Noodlehead pattern. There are so many fun - and free - things to make out there.
And that is the ninth month of 2012 finished. Wow, 2012 is going by so quickly. Three months remaining to try to complete all that I have on my many lists so I can go into 2013 with a clean
I must also mention that I managed to complete 2 out of 5 goals on my 3rd Quarter Finish Along with Quilter in the Gap - yay! Two isn't bad - I made two in the last quarter as well so at least I'm consistent! My finishes were the Brit Quilt Mini Quilt and my Pretty Pleats Tote Bag. Sadly I did not get my Mod Sampler done despite great efforts last week. Never mind - I'll just have to add it to the next quarter :)
Here is to a GREAT October!
