We'll September whizzed by really quickly. I was away from home on three of the four weekends. I also joined a gym and have started going to Aquafit again. The pace in the classes is pretty rigorous and I'm finding myself tired as I adjust to the new level of activity. Cyndy and Wendy have told me that's normal at the beginning. I certainly hope so.
What all this means of course is that I have fallen behind on my quilting and blogging goals, but it's a new month and October promises to be a little less busy. I've been using these first early days of October to catch up.
On Wednesday Wendy and I will be delivering this group of colourful quilts to the sexual assault unit. You can read a bit more about this program in the tab comfort quilts at the top of the post.
I took advantage of the clear skies to take photos of each individual quilt for our records, and I will be ironing labels on to each quilt later today. These quilts were made by members of The Royal City Quilters Guild. I did not make any of these quilts but will have two quilts in the next batch, including my Rainbow Rose quilt.
On Saturday Wendy, Cyndy and I got together for a day of sewing and I worked on some blocks for a group quilt for the small modern group. Yesterday I spent some time playing catch up on the Meadow Mystery by cutting the fabric. The Meadow Mystery is a Quilt Along run by Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs. She is a wonderful pattern designer and if you would like to have a chance to win two of her newest patterns you can go here.
I felt so happy as I cut this fabric which I suppose is because I love the fabric so much, but it could also be because I made it to Ken's meditation group in the morning where the focus was on being observant of the simple good things that we experience in our lives.
My goals for this week are to catch up with the Meadow Mystery and to figure out 8 at a time 1/2 square triangles so I can make some progress on the Mod Bear Paw that Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts is holding. I'm linking this post to Main Crush Monday hosted by Beth of Cooking Up Quilts.
