Moving On....

I started out just piecing the center house block.

I then proceeded to attach the applique pieces to the house.

Took it outside since it was sunny which lately is a rarity.

We still have our small pond out back.

I also got a few blocks of my cream and red queen size quilt finished. Only 41 more to go!

A Little Behind

Yes I am a little behind in my Lori Holt quilt "Autumn Love". But not to far as to lose sight of the finish! Here is my milk can block all finished and cut to size.

It has been so dark and dull the past few weeks that I don't even bother trying to take a picture outside anymore. I have the next two blocks glued down and buttons picked out. The maple leaf block....

And the sunflower block.....

I have also finished four more blocks for my red and cream quilt. Now I only need 44 more!

All for now  chatter later, Martha.

Thought I would share the wall hanging I donated to the Mustard  Seed in Deerwood, MN.   It is my color wash  with a wool cross and crown in the center. I have also finished my blocks for Third Saturday Sewing Group. When put together they are to large for one picture , so I folded in half and took two pictures.


                               This is one block. Next my two pics......

  We already have snow on the ground!  The next six months are going to be cold! Chatter later, Martha.

Halloween Ahead

Halloween is dead ahead of us. I have one project I would like to get finished. I bought some fat quarters of Tula Pink's line Del la Luna. As with my Jen Kingwell fabric, I like to use one of Jen's patterns. So as with Tula , I like to use one of her patterns. I found one in her latest book with Angela Walters. It is called "Sugar Skulls"!

                            Rows here are not sewn together.

                               Borders are on in this picture.

                               This is the  pieced backing.

I also have my milk can block glued down and am working on stitching it down.

Chatter later, Martha.

Two More

I have two more blocks glued down so that I can applique down. In the the pictures I only have the buttons glued in position not sewn down yet.

Acorn foliage

Fall Foliage

I used brown leaf stems instead of  the  green she said. I also used blue buttons instead of the green she said.  Doing my own thing there.  Chatter later, Martha.

An So On

My scarecrow block is finished!

I have some stars sewn on the Autumn block!

Usually my back yard is flooded and water is up to the log my hubby has placed for the ducks to sit on. Even though it has been raining every day this week!

I have a woodpecker at my feeder just now, hope you can make him out....

Weathermen have told us to look for snow the end of this week. Chatter later, Martha.
