September, a fond farewell.

September, a fond farewell.

It's Fresh Sewing Day again at Lily's Quilts. It seems that I have made a lot more than I realized this month - loads of blocks, and two quilt tops, and coasters. I have found this September so busy at home and at work that I am really happy to have had time to get any sewing done at all.

I have more blocks to make this weekend - I am finishing my September bee blocks, and I am making prototype blocks for my month as queen bee in the Aqua and Orange Bee. I have some blocks to make for Karen's Kind Stitches project and I have to finish off some more coasters for a talented friend in a private swap. Then I have a massive trip to the post office to mail all that and the 5 x 4 blocks off, I think I counted 19 or 20 packages!

I also joined more swaps, seems I am having fun with them (and one day soon I know that packages will come to me from the swaps I have been doing over the summer, cross your fingers, ok?)

The Modern Christmas Tablerunner Swap 2011 will mean that I finally will have a Christmas Tablerunner, and should put me in a holiday mood. The Scrappy Swap should be fun too, I send a fat quarter's amount of scraps and a small item of pincushion size, and no extras, and I get back the same - interesting scraps of things I might not have chosen.

I am planning to spend some time this weekend looking at everyone else's September recap, I hope you will also go over to look at the Fresh Sewing day posts, there is a talented group there.
Fresh Sewing Day
Best,

Leanne
