Plodding along

Happy to say all the ripping out has been finished. Now all I have to do is sew them all back insanity of it all.
I have finished piecing 6 fall placemats. One of them is quilted and waiting to be bound. The pattern has them being enveloped and then quilted, but I think a binding is so much nicer...besides I wanted to throw in a third color to the pattern and this was the best way to do it. Have a peek.

Colors are a bit off. Four of them are going to be for a fund raiser for upcoming retreat. Hoping to sell tickets on them at the next guild meeting. I am keeping 2 for the Mr. and myself. I put some lovely bird fabric on the back of the ones I want to keep...what do you think? Should I back them all in this? It makes them totally reversible for differnt look.

Got to go picking wild blueberries with a friend (thanks Glenda!) this week...a totally unexpected surprise. I thought I had missed the berries altogether, so this was a real treat.

Also picked up a book from the library this week. Kind of nice to cozy in on these blustery fall days with a good read.

Moving back home tomorrow til Thursday and then I fly out to Regina til the first week of Oct. More about that later. Got to run...............
