October will be here tomorrow, cannot believe that September is over. Time seems to fly by as we try to work on our projects with the busyness of the season. I love the cooler days of October, I love to watch the trees with the changing leaves, I love taking the grandchildren to the pumpkin patch and carving pumpkins, I think I love everything about fall.
I am working very hard to keep up on my projects, Starting to get new ideas for new projects but also finishing up all of the old. Starting to make a little bit of progress on the binding on the quilts on the ironing board.
Today I gathered with some refugee women from Africa who did not know how to use a sewing machine, with very few words in English, it was so much fun to sit down to teach them. Even though I couldn’t understand most of what they said, it was so much fun to hear them chatter back-and-forth in their language as they enjoyed learning how to use a sewing machine. The smiles on their faces were priceless. They were so proud of what they accomplished, just a great afternoon.
So now to tell you about the book sets, Joann fabrics along with my Publisher has published in very limited number a set of quilt books. There are three books in the series, they are called, stripes and square block sampler quilt, triangle block sampler quilt and Star blocks sampler quilt.
Each book contains 25 blocks from the Civil War diary, Civil War love letter, and the Civil War anniversary quilt books along with instructions for piecing the block and the project together.
I have approximately 10 sets for sale if you’re interested, each set costs $38.97 for all three books. Just drop me an email. Ryquilter1@msn.com
Enjoy your day today and I hope you find some time to stitch.
