September is here!!!

But the nice cool weather is not:

 Fall is definitely on my mind.  Made a few purchases to help the yum factor of the fall season.

I sadly have gotten a few more since then and have found a few dozen things that I want to do. Like this yummy one in Love of Quilting:
and this lovely piece jumped into my cart:
Yep, there is purple in there.
Of course.
And Lola came to play a couple of weeks ago and she is readier (we will go with that poor grammar) than I am.  Look at her cute little stitchery.
I am still plugging along with what I am supposed to do. Made some evil boo boo on my black and white checkerboard strips. Thought I might just rip my hair out, but I finally changed tactics and went for something easier.
 So these little lovelies that are all about a 1/2 inch too long:
turned into this nice checked flag fabric that I can chop to the exact size, so hopefully I will be done with it real soon and can get on to other things.

So, lots to finish and even more on my wish list. What am I doing sitting here.
Hope everyone has a nice holiday if you are in the states and a extra special weekend if you are not.

I love fall but I don't like winter. Can we just go from fall back into spring please? LOL


I thought that all one had to do was 'buy' the fabric and touch it--
and that it would make itself into something 'cute' while one was sleeping!!!?????
Happy stitching-hugs, Di
and that miss gracie
