November OMG - UFO

I am not late.  I am just really early for next year...  :P   My goal this month is to turn this flimsy into a real quilt that the kids can snuggle under next fall.

I want to border this in black, using up the batting from my current design wall.  I have a few large chunks to piece together for the backing.  Binding is still TBD.

October OMG -done

This month went by quickly!  I sneaked home to finish this up before trick or treating...  Not sure I'll be home in time to post later, but better pics soon!

Here's a close up:

September OMG - done

Found them!

I have been sorting through my piles and boxes and more boxes.  A bit ago, I found the missing pieces buried deep at the bottom of a box I thought I had sifted through before.

I also found the layout, but I remember when I started sewing the triangles together, I forgot to mark which way was up...  So I might need to improvise a bit.  :)

This past weekend, I finished up the rest of that row:

September OMG - Halloween spiderweb quilt

Early last October, I took a class at my LQS on spiderweb quilts.  I got half-way done before Halloween came and went.

So I set it aside and moved on.  Seriously, I packed up all of my stash!  ...and the rest of the house too, plus kids and cats, of course!  We only moved one town over, but I was not very organized about packing, so I'm still searching for some things, like the other blocks-to-be.  They are buried in a box somewhere...

I know where the rest of the row in progress is:

I even labeled the pieces so I know what order to sew them in, yay!
As well as the box of scraps I was using:

My one-monthly-goal for September is to find those other 15 blocks!   Thanks for hosting, Patty, and encouraging me to sew more!  <3

I completed my goal of taking apart my UFO and re-sewing it.  Now it looks like this:

And the little one that was this:

13 years

Today marks my 13th year in the Air Force.  Only 7 more years to go until I can be the crazy cat lady that I have always wanted to be!
