Hi Quilting Friends,
October was a very slow month in terms of stitching and quilting. I may have lost my sewing mojo, at least for now. No worries; it will be back before you know it!
I’ve been slowly recovering from a shoulder injury that I got this summer when I fell partway out of the attic. (How clumsy of me!) The pain level is decreasing, and my range of motion has improved, so I’m hopeful for a complete recovery with physical therapy. (I can definitely advise against falling out of an attic, in case you were considering it. Gravity is not always a friend.)
Instead of sewing, I’ve been working on my physical therapy, organizing our guest room, catching up on some home maintenance projects, and making my “wish list” for a much-anticipated sewing studio in our upstairs game room. It’s going to take a while to get everything sorted and organized, but it will be worth it for sure.
I’ve done nothing on the projects that remain. Nothing, and it doesn’t even bother me.
White / Cream Scrappy Basket
I had some fun this month, sorting my cream & white scraps and making this brand new cream & white scrappy storage box. It was a logical project, since the scraps were being stored in a drawer unit that needed to exit the guest room. I got a little off-theme on two sides, and I’ll admit that using just cream and white was a stretch for me, but I am very happy with how it turned out. 😊
Sewing scrappy baskets might help my sewing mojo to return. I still plan to make two more neutral-toned scrappy baskets to finish my collection.
Scrappy Road to Oklahoma
All done! My October “One Monthly Goal” was to stitch down the binding, and it’s finished.
My “One Monthly Goal” for November is to add borders to this quilt -in-progress, to make it ready for quilting.
October’s color was LIME GREEN, so I made two pretty LIME GREEN Sawtooth Stars!
And I had enough little strips to make 12 more string blocks, all in LIME GREEN!
Here’s my task list spreadsheet for October, which hasn’t changed since September:
