Great book find!

Hello everyone, Have you ever just happened upon a great book find, on sale? This is a book that I have wanted for a long time, Constellations. There are so many quilt block and other patterns inside, all based upon the zodiac's 12 constellation stars. This book was only $9.01 including tax. If your local stores do not have it, the book can be found at: Fancy Tiger Crafts {not an affiliate link}. Hoping that you are all doing well and enjoying autumn.

Monster Mash Blog Hop: day 2

Good morning to you all! Today is day 2 of the Monster Mash Blog Hop. This is well, part of my project. Due to having fallen and wearing an arm brace, I did not finish the rest of my project. Many apologies. The metal can is hand-painted and is decorated with a crow label (graphic: Graphics Fairy) . I speckled some vintage white paint to make the can look a bit aged. Many thanks to Joan for hosting another fun blog hop. {As soon as the rest of my project is finished, I will photograph and publish that}. Thank you so much for visiting. Be sure to visit today's blog hoppers to see their wonderful creations. Here is the list of today's blog hoppers:

Tuesday October 24- Scrapdash, Words & Stitches, Homespun Hannah's Blog (you are here), Domestic Felicity.

Welcome Autumn 2023!

Way back in 2018, I participated in the Autumn Jubilee hosted by Carole of: From My Carolina Home. The stitch along was for a wool pumpkin, and I made mine into this little flower pocket. Somehow, 'never got posted on this blog. Carole even mentioned the pocket on her blog {belated thank you} in a wrap-up post. Now, some 5 years later, here it is. Wishing all of you a happy first day of the Autumn solstice. Autumn is one of my favorite seasons. Is the weather cooler where you live?

Two cradle quilts

Good morning friends. 'Hoping you are all having a wonderful week. These are two cradle quilts for a drive hosted by Carole of: From My Carolina Home. The little quilts are going to a group who make wood toys for childrens' Christmas gifts. The 18" SQ quilts will go inside the cradles and other wood toys, each along with a teddy bear. Carole expressed in her post that printed fabrics for little boys would be especially appreciated, so one of mine has the tossed footballs print on it. The little quilts need to be received by Carole no later than 9th November, 2023.

Old thread spools

These are some old wood spools that I found at a thrift store many years ago. Some of them got posted, but the ones in the front row (the smaller ones) did not. Isn't it funny how some things can by accident get overlooked? This photograph was originally to be a blog header, but that never happened (lol). 'Hoping that you all are having a wonderful day. Thank you for all of the sweet comments and visits to this blog. Regardless of what the world might say, blogging is still popular.
