The view from here
October 27, 2014 § 9 Comments
I’ve almost forgotten how to blog, it’s been so long.
The seasons keep changing.
November arrives at the end of this week leaving only two months left of this year.
It has gone by so fast!
A lot seems to have also changed.
My mom passed away last January.
My best friend moved away last month to care for her mother.
I’ve gained new friends that have become so dear so quickly.
The holidays will be different this year.
I’m declaring this last week of October UFO week to try and finish a few projects.
I’m trying to not do much of anything else but the bare minimum so that I can spend maximum time sewing.
It’s only Monday, but at the moment I’m feeling content about it all.
This quilt above was finished a week or so ago.
The blocks were made by the lovely ladies of the Faith Circle of Do.Good.Stitches.
The tutorial for the castle block is over here.
It will be sent to Restore Innocence, an organization that rescues girls from human trafficking.
The binding fabric came from my mom’s stash.
The backing fabric I found on sale at my local Ben Franklin and is quite wild.
I wish I lived somewhere exotic because it felt like this quilt needed to be photographed near a castle or a cathedral or some majestic building.
But I live in a suburb where there are no majestic buildings.
So my shed comes to the rescue again.
And the sun made a short appearance today among the rainy days of the season.
Have a lovely Monday!
