September has not been a heavy sewing month for me. We went out west for a nine day vacation (Vegas, Grand Canyon, Sedona, Flagstaff, Lake Powell, Zion Park and Boulder City.) Much time was spent planning and then packing. We had a GREAT time but, of course, came back exhausted. I am just getting back into the studio and trying to get a rhythm going again.
I have done several blocks for a batik quilt using a block of the month from Craftsy I downloaded a couple of years ago. The fabric is the batik version of “Bobbins and Bits” – see the sewing motifs? I love how bright it is. I’ve never put together such large blocks! This won’t be done for a while, but I am enjoying it.
A good bit of my time has been spent prepping for the two fall retreats – Quilt & Sew-in Fall I and Fall II. One of our guest bedrooms is filling up with all the goodies and I’m really looking forward to once again being with all the wonderful ladies who will be attending and I get to meet a few new ones this year too!
And now for the winner of my Island Batik Ambassador Blog Hop – Linda W. from the Shenandoah Valley! She wins a pack of 60-five inch squares of the Solstice collection. Congrats and enjoy!I have contacted you by email for your address. Start planning your project for these batik beauties!
