Happy September! I was just looking over my posts and realized that I only posted 6 entries in August, compared to 8-10 every other month of the year. Sheesh. I'm not really sure what happened there. There was some traveling, and me being sick (I still am coughing a bit--I wish this bronchitis would just let go!), but I'm not sure why I don't have more to show. Maybe it's just that I've been plugging away at things, like the project above. That's my in-progress labels for the Yellow Brick Road quilts my gramma and I pieced back in June. Yes, June. I have just finished the labels, so need to attach them, piece the backing, sandwich the quilts, quilt, and bind. Between those two and the scrappy quilt I'm still hand-stitching (3 sides down! 1 to go!) I hope to have 3 quilts completed this month!
I finished my replacement apron a few weeks ago, but have yet to photograph it. One thing I have finished but can't show you is a special little project, pictured above. A friend of mine has a birthday coming up. She has also lost over 40 pounds recently! So, she asked me to make her a softie out of her favorite chinos: a hippo. Full reveal to come in a couple of weeks, after she's seen the little guy. I must say, though, that I have fallen in love with him! And I am back on a little train of softie-making, so expect to see more soon.
