October Projects

October is here, and I've decided to be slightly less ambitious this month. Wisdom, pessimism, lack of motivation, ...who really knows! I see fall break, halloween, room mom responsibilities, pumpkins, a dirty house, a huge pile of laundry, a marathon to run in San Francisco, etc in my near future. It doesn't seem my sewing machine will be getting much of my attention this month. However, in order to remain somewhat hopeful (and, quite frankly, knowing that I will need some quilt therapy), I have a few projects that I aspire to finish this month! So here goes, and please wish me luck:

The Year of Schnibbles project which is the Cindy Lou Who (I love the name!) quilt made with The Caroler fabric by Mary Engelbreit.

Next up are 2 Halloween treat bags for my kiddos. These will be the first done, I'm sure. Somehow, I have a feeling I will be getting some reminders about these until progress is made. As in, "Mom is my treat bag ready yet?", or "Mommy what will I do without a treat bag on Halloween", or "Look, Mom, there's a cool Hannah Montanta treat bag since I don't have anything else to use yet." They really are very subtle!

And, last, but certainly not least is the Gobble Gobble quilt that I wanted to finish last month, but didn't quite get around to. I'm hoping a second time is a charm in this case, plus wouldn't it be nice if it was done before Thanksgiving! It's the fabulously cute Sweet Escape pattern by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co, and I can't wait to see the finished product. My fingers and toes are crossed for this one!

So, there you have it! We'll see what happens! Enjoy your fall wherever you are!

Oh, and GO ROCKIES!!!!! Roctober is here again!


  1. Excellent projects! And I can relate where life sometimes takes us away from our sewing machine but as I mentioned before to to other Chraming Girls this is for fun and not to stress over. Do what you can but enjoy doing it!

  2. Those look like fun projects to do. Sweet Escapes is one I would like to do! My son just ran a 1/2 Marathon over the weekend. I get to go see the next run at the end of the month. You will be busy with all of that!
