I'm Singing, I'm Dancing...Can You Tell I'm Happy?

I said at the beginning of the month that I would be one very happy girl if I completed all of my October goals for Charming Girl's...and I am overjoyed to announce that I DID!!!!!!!!! I got them all done! What a great sewing month...and I feel like a weight has been lifted...all those bits and pieces of things are done...moving on to new things...YIPPEE! So here they are in no particular order...

The binding is on the Spools quilt and the Zig Zag Quilt...the Zig Zag is all ready to be given as a Christmas gift.

Sadie's Sampler is all caught up...there's one more set of blocks to come and then the border and that one will be done.

Belle Meade blocks are all caught up. I'm loving these blocks. This has truly been an out of the box experience for me...there are pieces of fabric in these monthly kits that I never would have chosen, but I'm using them and they're wonderful.

Antietam is all caught up...I think I may start putting some of these together...these are the strangest blocks I've ever made...I've never seen construction quite like this...it's going to make putting them together easy...but they sure look funny.

The Designer BOM from Fat Quarter Shop is done for this month and I sure am having fun with this one...love the Glace fabrics.

And I'm really dancing over this one...Simply Sophisticated is all put together and my wonderful Quilt Holder is doing his job.

So that's it...October goals DONE...on to November...oh did I tell you Hampton and Camden are coming in November???? LOL!

Quilt Hollow said...

Oh Carol...your quilts are just right up my alley! Naturally I'm loving all that you shared today. Tell me your energy secret!!! :-)

Carol,

I'm singing, I'm dancing and can I tell YOU how happy I am that you're sharing such lovely work? You do fine, fine piecing my friend and to see some of my favorites "in lights" really makes me sing and dance and, well, it makes a girl proud to know a gal like YOU!

Now, I do have to say, before I leave, that you're really right about those fabrics I'm seeing for Belle Meade. There's really nothing like a kit from BB to show you what can be from what is, ha? It's like a "fabric study class" I think. At least that's how I feel looking at what you're sharing!

You should be so, so, so proud at all you've done! You ROCK!

Lisa D. said...

Wow - you got made a lot of progress on some really beautiful projects! I love Sadie's Sampler.

Oh Carol your "Simply Sophiscated" is so beautiful! Now I need to finish mine. I am many, many months behind. I sure wish I would have joined "Sadie's Sampler", it's wonderful too! You are an inspiration to us all! I love Darlene's comment about "dancing across the desert"....that's great!

Congrats on all of your hard work! It is too hard for me to pick a favorite because all of them are awesome!

Ohhh...I know that you are so excited to have the Little Ones coming to visit.

Karen said...

I can see that you have reason to do the Happy Dance. I just finished my last project for the Charming Girls's Club for the month. Didn't think I would get it all done but did.
Those are strange looking blocks in the one picture. I am waiting to see how things go together.
