It has been a rainy week, and I have so enjoyed it.
I went to dinner with my friend.
Our October walking schedule has been planned, and I am looking forward to those days.
We are also planning a craft day on Monday to make bird seed ornaments to donate to a school that said they would like to have some.
Then on Tuesday, we will have a craft day to make fabric pumpkins.
My friends liked the fabric pumpkins I made for my grandchildren.
Last night, my grandchildren received their fabric pumpkins in the mail;
and I heart that the pumpkins were a great hit.
Each grandchild went to sleep, hugging their pumpkin.
My youngest took it to Share and Tell today.
I have also spent time reading and watching tutorials on both modern quilts and artistic quilts.
The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilts by Sherri Lynn Wood.
Tierney, of Tierny Creates, posted information about this book, and I am so glad she did.
I have read and reread this book, and I am learning so much. I shared it with my sister, and she and I are discussing it.
I also have been studying a book by Shannon Brinkley, Scrappy Bits Applique.
Shannon is a fabric designer and quilter based out of Austin.
My friend, Nancy, and I ran across some of her fabric at a quilt store in Austin.
Nancy has made some pillows using Brinkley’s fabric and stencils and she has one posted on her etsy store.
I am interested in trying out a collage type quilt.
Right now, I am just drawing some trees and landscapes, to get an idea of what I want to do.
I also made myself another fall pillow.
I can use this on my comfy reading chair.
On my table right now, I have some fabrics that I think I will use to make me an autumn tote of some kind.
My brother is spoiling me.
He sent me another box of fabric!
I need to get busy!
