Design Wall Monday

WELL!  It’s been many moons since I posted (well, not MANY but about 1 1/2), so let me get right to it:

TRAVEL:  We took a 10-day cruise out of Boston, visiting Maine, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island.  We had a wonderful time, but I took very few photos because the fall colors hadn’t happened yet, and due to some back issues, I didn’t bring my big camera.  We traveled with two other couples (whom we love) so we had a fabulous time.  A shot of our ship in Sydney, Nova Scotia:

QUILT SHOW:  Our Prior Lake Quilt Guild had their second ever quilt show in October.  I quickly finished a 10-year-old UFO I named My Charming Garden.  Just four (if I remember right) charm packs sewn up with sashing and borders.

We had a Blue Ribbon section for any guild members that won a blue ribbon at past Minnesota State Fairs.  I showed my Autumn Garden from 2010:

SEWING:  Yes, I have been busy!  I made a Swoon Patterns shopper’s tote (free pattern, by the way) for a friend.  The link will take you to the free patterns, but you might want to check out the for-purchase patterns as well.  They are a cut above!

I just made some Halloween card wallets for friends.  They may get a coffee gift card slipped in before mailing.  🙂

And I did quilt and bind the green charm pack quilt I showed above.  Now I’m busy doing some prep work on a 4-year-old wall hanging that has been ignored too long.

PHOTOS:  Fall is always fun for photography.  Some of my faves for the past month:

That’s it for now.  Oh, Dear Hubster had a second hip replacement, so I forgot to show my nursing hat!  (haha, he wishes he married a nurse)  He is doing very well in spite of me.
