A Look Back on October and November 2021...

 This is a quick recap of October- start at the top left: Family trip to Marquette MI, our volunteer pic from Boerson Farm, visit to my friend Lolo, fall outdoor decor, in my sewing studio-my SAQA auction piece, Ufo embroidery finishes, playing with plaid, the UFO's, prepping wool and embroidery projects for winter.

Here's November 2021- hike the day after Thanksgiving with Kevan an Meghan, visit with John, Maureen and Kathy, the turkeys are out!, Ken's most delicious pizza- my fav!, fall indoor decor, Thanksgiving at Dawn and Jeff's, table decor and the last 2 are a bag I am making.

A Look Back on September 2021

Made some Ash bags for my sister- a friend of hers died from cancer and  7 friends were taking her ashes to spread on some trail rides they all enjoyed together

Our son Kevan and his partner Meghan came for a visit over Labor day weekend and helped out at the farm we volunteer at.

Another 3" Mini Quilt

UFO finished and sent to a friend- small angel pillow

My piece for the SAQA Trunk Show 2021- it started out as a feather but turned into a Pod.

Had a great visit with 2 friends at the Milwaukee Art Museum to see the Quilts of Pauline Parker exhibit

Finished my sister's 60th Birthday quilt- she turned 60 in January of 202 but we all know how that went! Will take it to her in October when we go for a visit. She saw the cover of the Quiltfolk magazine and asked if I could make her one like it. It's made from all scraps.

My little Fall decor
