Sewing, sewing, and more sewing

While we rode out the hurricane last weekend, I did a lot of sewing.  A LOT!  (We never lost power and didn't have any issues or clean-up from the storm...we were really, really lucky.  So I got to sew for 4 days.  Really, really, really lucky!)

I got my do. Good Stitches blocks done (October was my month...I picked Ashley's Converging Corners block...)
I worked on an improv project (sorry, no pics)...I got a million blocks done. (Ok, maybe it was only 10...but it seemed like a million.)

After all the improv, I needed a structured project.  So I whipped up a little patchwork number with one of my Bella FQ bundles.  (more pics to come)
I machine stitched the binding again....I'm starting to see improvement in my skills...baby steps to getting it right.
And today I picked up some nice fall colors to make Thanksgiving napkins for my brother-in-law. (He's hosting this year!)  I haven't started on them yet, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to want to keep them for myself!
Well, I'd love to stay and chat but I really have to get back to my sewing...(you didn't think I'd had enough yet, did you?)
