Last night was trick or treat in our neighborhood. We had a fair number, but not as many as usual. In our community, several neighborhoods decided to trick or treat on Saturday, so I think it was a bit confusing for those who drive around to the different neighborhoods and that cut down on the number we saw last night.
Since yesterday was Halloween, that means today is November 1st. On the one hand, I'm thinking "EEK, What am I doing for Christmas stuff!" and on the other hand, "Whew, glad October is over!" Kiddo played volleyball for school and is on the local swim team. Other than fall break, we've had volleyball and/or swimming every weekend this month. So with having only one day to keep up with the house and laundry, my sewing time was pretty curtailed last month. Volleyball is over, and I have some vacation that I need to take or lose it. So, I should have more time to do some sewing this month.
So what's up on the design wall? My leaders and enders project, the purple and yellow quilt, is still up. Not much progress on that. I did make some progress on the 2008 BOM.
That's what's up on the design wall, the last 2 borders for the 2008 BOM quilt. Somehow I didn't do the math right and have to cut one more strip to finish piecing these. So almost finished with this quilt.
I'm behind on my BOMs, so these need some attention. After finishing up a number of UFOs, I think I'm ready for some new projects. I really want to do Judy Laquidara's mystery quilt, but I haven't had time to pull fabric for it, much less do the all the cutting. I have pulled fabric for the Layer Cake Quilt Along which starts tomorrow. Bonnie Hunter is also starting a mystery quilt later this month and I've always wanted to do one of her projects. I may have to just print out the instructions for that one and save it for later. Check in next week, at this point there is no telling what might be up on the design wall.
