I jumped right in when Lori @ Humble Quilts blog announced her 50 Shades of Brown SAL but I didn't quite get it finished on time for her Linky Party. But it's the perfect little quilt for October's mini.
I had plenty of pre-cut 1-1/2" squares and started sewing them together in 4-patches in no time at all. Then I added 3" squares . . .
But because the center was so dark I deviated a bit and instead of adding 4 different fabrics for the border I added this light leaf stripe all the way around.
Another monthly mini--done! Thanks, Wendy, for keeping us all focused! Make sure you visit her blog the end of the month :) And thank you, Lori, for another fun SAL!
On another note--or two . . .
The last of fall colors in our driveway. This was one of the features we liked when we bought our place 20 years ago!
A Shaggy Ink Cap mushroom in my daughter's yard. So strange . . .
When I was about 4 years old, I wore Aunt Midge's majorette uniform on Halloween :)
And here is Aunt Midge (my mother's youngest sister) about 1941.
I had that uniform until last year when I brought it (and other vintage clothing) to auction during the arduous task of de-cluttering our house before our move.
Lastly, a good friend in MS asked me to join her in a virtual Run for RBG. This was just what I needed! I signed up for the 87-mile walk/run at your own pace/place. Results have to be submitted by December 30th.
I've been into fitness my entire life and continue to walk every day so doing this distance will be a fun challenge as long as the weather holds out!
87 miles. . . and counting down :)
Enjoy your week and . . .
