I used to have a little part in my profile in my Etsy shop that said something like, "most of my quilting is done in the winter when the rain keeps me indoors, summer is time for gardening, being outside, etc....." but I then took it out when I amazed myself with how much quilting I actually accomplished this summer. But as we turn to fall, I now see why I had that comment in there and realized that I should have said that fall was my away from quilting time!
I just canned 14lbs of green beans this week and am currently dehydrating pounds upon pounds of apples. I haven't touched my machine or a piece of fabric in over a week- maybe two! So while I am enjoying the great fall weather that we have here and all the other fun things I have to do, part of me is looking forward to this winter when we will probably be getting close to our yearly average of 6feet of rainfall, keeping me indoors with my stash and my machine.
I did list a new item in my shop this past week though. I actually finished it over a month ago and just hadn't taken the photos to get it listed. It's yo-yo Christmas tree garland! Take a gander....
What a fun way for us fabri-holics to add something great to our trees this year!
