September......

Wow.... it is hard to believe it is September..... I had a semi-busy summer... I got lots of my own work completed and was very busy with customer quilts.  We have had a rainy, rainy summer and we now have tons of mushrooms in the yard.  I just love them!   I need to check out the different varieties online because of the different ones I have spotted....

Yesterday we had a beautiful Blue Heron land on our beach..... just such a serene bird..... 

This little project was a kit from Connecting Threads.... and was hand pieced!  The hexagons didn't take quite as long as I thought and I really enjoyed making this little purse.

I also finished my applique towels for the swap that I am in for December....no pics of those yet... cause the receivers won't be getting them until later.....  All in all, it has been a productive summer... I will have some more exciting news towards the end of the month.

Lovely pic of the heron, they are beautiful - we were lucky enough to see one on a visit to BC a few years ago. We have had lots of rain recently and mushrooms are springing up here too, but I don't think they are edible!

Great bag Debbie. I am so looking forward to the towels. Thank you for sharing such lovely pictures. I always love the pictures of your home and town.

I love to see the mushrooms pop up too. My daughter laughs at me and says she has never seen someone get so much pleasure out of a fungus.

Cute bag!
