Today is September 11.
"A day that will live in infamy." to quote FDR.
We all remember where we were when we heard the news.
I was home cleaning house an doing homework,
when I got three phone calls,
one right after the other telling me to
TURN ON THE TV!
(I don't watch daytime tv so if anything big happens they call and tell me.)
I watched in shock and horror.
Those are the emotions I feel to this day.
We Will NEVER Forget.

Last night was the monthly Friday Night With Friends
Hosted by Cheryl!
Thank you for inviting us!
So, I worked on Izzy's stocking-almost finished with the last snowman on the first row!
Then I made a 9-patch for the Civil War WISP.
So far I've made the 7 above!
This one a day thing is working well!
Only 14 more and I can begin sewing the sashing together.

My favorite coffee mug! I try every day to follow that advice!
I didn't post August goals and while I did pretty well getting things done I think it helps to have it here. I just always bite off more than I can chew when it comes to the "Want to do" list.
Anyway, for September:
Rainbow scrap challenge Hash tags, big blocks and flip flop blocks in red.
Cross-stitch: Izzy's Stocking
Civil War hand piecing very old UFO: finish all the 9 patches for the sashing. There are only 24 and I'm doing one a day so as long as I can keep that up I'm golden.
English Paper Piecing: Flower garden, a WISP-8 flowers finished
Paper Doll Quilt: A new project (also for Izzy) 8 blocks complete
Small Project:A table runner. I need something quick and finished!

I had to go up to Independence to have blood sucked-oops I mean drawn,
as I have an appointment with my primary care doctor in two weeks.
Then, I went SHOPPING!
First, I went to Joanns.
Where they have completely re-arranged the store and nothing is in the same place!
I did get almost all the thread I needed to finish Izzy's sock,
including the all important 666 (red)!
Then, it was off to the cross-stitch store: C C and Company.
Hoping to get both the last thread and some needles.
I like to use a very small needle with my cross-stitch as it seems to slide through the fabric easier, but they can be hard to find
I scored both and some sale kits and patterns.
All of you, especially Lin, with your pretty pincushions made me want some of my own!
Then, it was off to the Quilt shop- Quilter's Station.
I needed red fat quarters to add to the tiny bit of red in my drawers for the RSC blocks this month.
The square piece on the bottom is for Izzy's bear. I've dressed a bear for each of the Grands but for some reason I missed doing Izzy's and I need to fix that.
I also got a new pattern book
I can not pass up anything that has to do with the Rockies, I love them so much! The photo at the top of the book is of the front range at Estes Park Colorado. Strangely, the designers were all from Utah! None from Colorado, Wyoming or Montana. I find that very disappointing. Not that I have anything against Utah just I love the other states more.
