Another post...Oh my!!

It feels so good to be back in my sewing room after a long absence! I carved out time this extended weekend to fulfill my creative nature. As stated in my last post, I caught up on my Art Journal Challenge and now here are my September and October blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. 
September's color was baby blue.

October's color is black!

I even spent some time quilting my nieces wedding quilt. It has been pieced for quite some time. I'm about 3/4 done with the quilting. Hopefully pictures soon!

Normally, my DH and I are camping in Door County this weekend. Not so this year as he is on a business trip to Thailand. This gave me time alone (with our Nellie) to put school work aside and be creative. I must admit, I miss Door County and the beautiful colors that are spectacular this time of year and all our DC camping friends! Here is a picture from last year.

Checking in with an update

School has kept me quite busy and away from my sewing room for the most part. Recently, I have been able to steal away some time to play catch up on my Art Journal challenge. I am finally able to post my finished August calendar. 
In order for me to remember what has happened each day, I keep a list on my phone so when I have time to actually fill out the days I am not trying to remember because I can barely remember yesterday!
And speaking about school, my September page is all about apples! In first grade, we spend considerable time learning about apples! We read lots of books, do reading/writing projects, apple math, and science projects. Next week we will be making applesauce! YUM! 
Here is the before picture
and then all filled in!
Since I was catching up, I didn't do anything fancy with my entries...just wrote them.
For my October journal, I decided to do a fall leaves theme. I love the colors of Fall. So pretty!
Our school is off on Monday for Columbus Day so I will use this weekend to catch up on a few more projects in my sewing room. 
Oh, how I miss quilting!!
