Block of the Month Sew-In!

Last Saturday, our block of the month group gathered to begin our final journey together - putting our blocks together into a quilt top.  This fall, we'll be sandwiching, pinning, quilting and binding.  It was wonderful to see them all come together - to see the fruits of the past year ripen.  Here are some pictures of the day:

Rosanne will begin this journey again in January 2014 with a new group - will you be joining her?

Summer Sewing Academy....

.....has ended for the summer.  It's been a fabulous, flurry of classes for kids.  So much fun and sewing going on.  My camera hasn't always been available when I wanted to capture a picture of a quilt....or a mug rug....or a zippered pouch....or one of the many other items made this summer by talented girls and boys, so I'll share one of a special girl who is so proud of her drawstring backpack:

And this week?  Back to school classes!  Today we made reusable snack bags....more pictures to come!
