Fall Pumpkin Time
I used a layer cake called Saltbox Harvest by Kate Strain I was given as a birthday gift a couple years ago.
Saw this block on a video and seemed simple to do. I have two runners pieced.
This is the smaller runner. I am adding some pumpkin applique to the sides.  Have a different plan for the longer one for my dining room table. Hope it goes to plan!;-)
Here is Big Boots kitty inspecting my seams up close!! We hope he has stopped growing he is 16 pounds and very tall!
So DH caught the pumpkin bug and made this last week. Was yummy!!!

Have had so much going on here have not got all my Fall decor pulled out and up yet.
Hope to do before weekend!!! Also have some secret sewing to finish up this week as well!
I am hoping to get in the sewing room in next few days!!

July Sewing
My pal Deb had a birthday on Aug 2nd. So I set to work in july making her gift.
Did the fast table runner. She is into owls these days and bright colors so when I saw this fabric it screamed her name!
Made a couple place mats to match for her and hubby to use. She was tickled with them so I am happy.
My DH baked her favorite cake so she was a very happy gal indeed. When we left she was getting into that cake! ;-)

Savanna Overnight Bag
Made this for our granddaughter to use for her sleep overs at her pals.
 It is roomy and has a tie closure so she can use for bigger items out the top.
It is a reall fun  looking bag with lots of color. Pics do not show it as well.
Room inside for whatever she needs to pack.
This to me was such acute girly fabric.  She loved her new bag but did not get a pic when they were down here Labor Day!!! We had a family cook out and enjoyed a good time with our kids.
Here is our cutie being silly. :-)

Some Summer Sewing
One of my Summer sewing projects was this runner and had on the table for Summer.
These blocks were a very old UFO in my closet! I had received  some log cabin blocks in a long ago swap.  They needed some work to be able to use. So I put them aside for another day! Well the day finally arrived  I un-sewed and re-sewed and was able to use enough of them for this runner.
Worked well for the summer place settings!

I am working on a new Fall runner now. Hard to think it is almost October already!!!

We finally got some much needed rain out here.
Other towns in our area are having flooding issues.
We have been very hot so hope we can cool off a bit now also.
