A lady I work with asked if I could make an adult bib for her mother. Here is the prototype for her to try out. I will make a couple more for her once I get the thumbs up on the design. It is made out of some flannel I have had for years. Hawiian printed flannel - I thought it was kid of funny when I bought it. The majority of this flannel was used on the back of the first flannel quilt I ever made.

It dawned on me yesterday that October is almost gone and I need to get crackin on the disappearing nine patch quilt if I am going to get it done by Xmas. Thank goodness I pinned the drawing I had made up on the wall or I might have struggeled on how to set up the strip sets.

I was so tired last evening, but I forced myself to finish sewing together the light pink 16 patch quilt top. I am glad to finally have this top sewn together.

I went on a road trip on Saturday. I picked up a couple family members and headed to a quilt shop. I needed some fabric for lining some boxy pouches that one of the fellows at work would like to buy.

I only managed to get two rows of blocks sewn together, but that is better than a stick in the eye!

I finally got the dark pink quilt top sewn together. Gee wiz it has taken me way too long to get this top sewn together.

I finished quilting this section of the 2010 quilt. I am quilting by eye so there will be some variance in the size of the space between the rows of stitiching which I am fine with.

I had a doctor's appointment yesterday afternoon. She was running behind so I was glad I took the 2010 quilt to work on while I waited. It is hard to see the long tan piece I started on so I am showing you the back stoo. Afterwards I went and got sushi for my reward.

I didn't get as much done as I wanted this weekend; I was tired. Here is what is did get done. I wanted a nicer bag to keep my counted cross stitch project in so I made this mesh bag. I used some leftover fiberglass screen. I dug around and found some double bfold bias stape to cover the seams. This will be so much better than a plastic bag.

I finished stitching the sampler. It still needs to be hand washed and pressed so it can be framed. I did use dsome artisticic license. Can you figure out what doesn't belong? I started working on this August 21st with only a little bit being done at that time.
