August sewing with Sandy


Well, we’re finally caught up after all the trips, family visits and just plain ‘ol summer shenanigans.  

You may have noticed that we have picked fewer and smaller projects this year.   That was intentional so that we could also work on other things that we have in our stash.  Sandy is managing to put a dent in hers…  Me?  not so much.   Not sure where the time goes.  

Anyway, here we go for August show and tell.   As always, Sandy’s are first.

This is a new pattern from Buttermilk Basin.   It’s part of a BOM called “Simply Words”.   This one is “September”.   It measures 6” square.

Next up is an old pattern of Buttermilk Basin’s called “A Collection of Flowers #1”.   We saw them stitched up at Karen’s house and both fell in love with them.

We both love bowl fillers and when Cheri came up with these new ones, we both immediately ordered the pattern.  It’s called “Summer Gathering”.  The pattern also has a cute little quilt that Sandy did.  You can look on Anna’s blog from yesterday to see it.

And last, but not least, is another banner from Buttermilk Basin in the series we’ve been doing.  This one is “October”.   Now…this is where you will see a huge difference in our interpretation of the pattern.    Mine is exactly like the pattern, and Sandy’s isn’t.   Need I say more?   He he.

Quite a difference, huh?   Oh that Sandy is quite the creative one!  Looks like she’s not too wild about ghosts and pumpkins.   LOL

I’m so ready for fall to arrive.   We’ve had so much smoke here in Bend from all the fires in the Pacific Northwest.  They are burning all around us so it doesn’t really matter which way the wind is blowing.   Hopefully with fall arriving and the cooler temperatures, those wonderful firefighters can get a handle on them.  

Thanks for stopping by.  

Hugs, Anne

Love all the fall stuff! I am ready for it here in Ohio! Could you tell us the pattern for the star quilt underneath the Fall Pincushion? Looks lovely - thanks for sharing!

Wonderful project choices! They are all lovely. Continued prayers for your firefighters and community. It's a scary year for all things forest.

Lots of fun fall pieces, and bowl fillers are nice to make and give as gifts.

Love seeing your monthly projects! I especially enjoyed the bowl fillers. I think our fabric stashes are like salads from a salad bar: you keep eating and eating but you never seem to make a dent in it!

I know what you mean about the smoke . . . we have had it here where I live, just outside Portland. I was hoping the forecasted rain storm would assist the firefighters, but the 2" of rain they predicted never seemed to materialize. My husband went camping at Timothy Lake on Mt. Hood and noted that many people were still having campfires, even the the ban in place. Thankfully, the weather has cooled down somewhat; that should be a welcome relief for the firefighters.

Warm Regards, Lisa in Lake Oswego

You never fail to impress me with your abundant projects for the season! All of these are wonderful, but I especially like those adorable pin cushions. One can never have too many. :)

Love all your works, especially the Halloween quilt. It makes me a new idea for horror decorations for the event.
