Falling Behind

It is Fall and I find myself falling behind in my quilt alongs and challenges. School has been busy, we took our annual trip up to Door County, and the Chicago Cubs are in the playoffs. All these have contributed to minimal sewing time.  Yesterday I took a day off from school thinking I would have time to catch up but I found that I really needed to get some household duties done first. This  only gave me a couple of hours in my sewing room. 
I was able to complete my pink little spools yesterday 
and this morning I worked on my Milky Way QAL star called Sol. The QAL is sponsored by Blossom Heart Quilts.
These challenges/QAL will soon come to an end. Here are all the little spools together. All arranged neatly in rows with the purple and reds spools stacked. How do you arrange your threads in your sewing room?
Here are all the stars so far in the Milky Way quilt.
Now to get caught up on my Grandma's Kitchen Sew Along blocks and my October goal for OMG. 


  1. Great blocks. Those Spool blocks are gorgeous!

  2. I really love your spools. They look so fabulous all together but they even look fabulous each alone.

  3. It's amazing how realistic those spools look in the photograph! You've done a fabulous job stocking your thread cupboard this year!

  4. Everything looks beautiful Dawn. Love your little spools. Life is busy all the time it seems isn't it. We did get all of our house projects done for the most part. At least we are living without dust! We still have a few things to do or redo before life gets busy with the holidays and the weather turns cold. Sewing has be slow for me but am trying to move a few things forward. When I see your RSC project I want to always stop whatever I am doing and go make a block of something. You inspire me. At the moment I'm working on my denim/calico/old shirt pinwheel quilt that I started ages ago. I wish I were better at finishing things but learning to just enjoy the time in my sewing room what ever that turns out to be. Joy in the Journey !!! Take care. Janita
