Seriously Having Fun




September is National Sewing Month and I MUST sew. :-) It's important that I do my part - are you doing yours?



Today I spent the entire day in my sewing room - practically from sun up till sundown. I'm very blessed with a husband who says "you must sew". He had leftovers for lunch and hot dogs for dinner. This man is very low maintenance - a definite keeper. LOL




I was ready to get busy with my Vintage Modern pieces/parts (remember I've already made two quilts - Picnic and Boardwalk - out of the fat quarter bundle I have). I needed the green w/white dots so a friend put a chunk in the mail yesterday afternoon and I got it today. WooHoo!



I started measuring, cutting, sewing, etc and by sundown I had the guts of my Vintage Holiday quilt. I'll order the border fabric early next week and it'll be an official flimsy very, very soon. I decided I needed to add corner stones - Mr Daze says this makes it mine. :-)

This week has been all about BIG Christmas packages and BIG Christmas ornaments. :-)

I've managed to keep my Happy Place very tidy however tomorrow I have to do a little dusting and vacuuming, much to Cooper's chagrin.


Thank you so much for popping in to visit - please enjoy a pieceful day.


In Friendship!

I love that, it really does remind me of the old type of baubles we all used to hang on our trees years ago.

I'm new to your blog and I love it! I have a huge passion for quilts and after 49 years of sewing, I find I need to make them. Maybe, too, it's the long history in the family of sewing and quilting. Anyway, thank you for sharing your posts and all they entail!

I did not sew yesterday but did do a bunch of much needed cleaning up in the sewing room.
