Yeah, we are back on track now, I think. Three of our babies came over on Sunday; Colty is in semi-isolation because we don’t want to get GG sick. How did it get to be the very last day in August??!!!
We got a chance to spend some quality time working on Addison’s ballerina quilt this weekend. Saturday morning, I posed the question on Instagram about using yellow or purple strips as sashing on the smaller cornerstone pieces.
The overwhelming vote was for yellow, which we love as well. However, a certain sweet girl’s favorite color is PURPLE. What to do, what to do? Use both colors, of course!
Are you wondering what response Addison had when we shared an update with her??
As promised, an appearance on my sewing table is a hexagon shape using background fabric that truly was cut in March. This is the first of several table toppers in my very near future and this is our very first one celbrating Halloween.
This particular topper features Frankenstein, a friendly green witch, and a mummy. Sue has been busy creating a stack of items for me to buttonhole once I finished some very important ballerinas. You’ll have to stick around to see how the second Halloween topper is different.
Yesterday was Sue’s Mom’s official birthday but we had a celebration on Sunday. What was on the menu for the party, you ask?? Coffee, juice, and brownies with cream cheese frosting. All of it was a hit but especially the frosting!
First, Dominic had to assure GG that he was ready to sing Happy Birthday before opening presents. Then, he was ready to blow out the candles while little brother, Chase, carefully watches. Chase wants to make sure he’s ready for the next birthday celebration. Shortly thereafter, the brownies were cut and eaten, and presents were opened with assistance from D&A. GG said she had the best birthday EVER.

Since we completely missed Patty’s Elm Street Quilts OMG linky party for August, you can bet your sweet bibi that we will come up with something for September! Thankfully, we have until tomorrow to decide. Two options spring to mind . . . like the two projects shared above. We’d better decide!
To-Do for the week of August 31st through September 6th:
- Add borders to Addison’s ballerina quilt
- Continue appliqué on the Halloween table topper
- Celebrate a nice long, relaxing holiday weekend
