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.
