October's goal for ALYoF, a blue beauty...

...last year's blue beautyGAAQG 2013 volunteer quilt...

My goal for October's ALYoF is to help 
Christa finish the 2014 GAAQG volunteer quilt.
Once we have it all pieced
I volunteered to quilt and bind the quilt.
Still lot's to do before the end of October.

We are using the same pattern as we used last year
Zuckerwatte (Cotton Candy) by Bonnie Hunter
from her String Fling book.
We decided to make the quilt this year without the scalloped border.
This quilt has a lot of paper pieced blocks...
I have the paper removed from rows 6 through 10, my half of the quilt
...messy and not fun!!!
The outer border is pieced, the binding is made.
We will be stitching together sometime this week.
Hopefully we will have a finished quilt top by the end of the week.
(sorry about the shadows...picture was taken in my basement)

I love this quilt and would be 'over the moon' excited if my name is drawn...

I'm linking up with Melissa and Shanna.

Enjoy your week!!
...it's always fun to stitch with friends...

September's ALYoF, and my heart is singing...

Well... let me say I've waited to the last hour again....

My September goal for ALYoF was to
embroider 3 of the smaller blocks of  Vintage Tin by Crabapple Hill
...and I am happy to say I made my goal.

Crabapple Hill VINTAGE TIN Stitchery Quilt Pattern

Since September is National Sewing month
I have been stitching and sewing a LOT!!
I started the motocycle block and
I'm sure, I know...it will be the last block I finish!!
Here are the blocks I've finished so far...

Blog hopping catch up day and a vintage find...

I am finally caught up reading and commenting
on the "See you in September Blog Hop".

I feel like I cheated when I visited Mme Samm's pinterest page...
before I read all the blogs.
Wow...there is some awesome RBD gingham goodies
included in all the summer sewing projects!!
For sure I knew I had to go and read all the postings!!
I'm happy to say...I did it
and after leaving everyone comments, I am blurry eyed but
so inspired!!

On one of our visits to Canada this past summer we took the
scenic route home and stopped at a few antique shops.
This is one find that I couldn't pass up...
a child's ironing board.
It is very sturdy and folds flat.
 Here it is again
...the cover is a wee bit grungy...
maybe a lot grungy, definitely needs refreshing!!
I am going to make it 'happy' with some RBD gingham.
I want to be able to use the ironing board 
beside my sewing machine.  It is the perfect height.
I vision a cheery, bright gingham one...
probably with a bit of embroidery...something like this.
What do you think?  
I have some medium red and some large yellow gingham, 
but I'm thinking I NEED some small aqua gingham...
before it is retired.

Thanks for stopping for a visit!!
