It's been one of those weeks where I've felt like I haven't stopped but for some reason I've accomplished very little! lol With Christmas just around the corner I really need to do better! I think I need to start making lists!

Carrie P. of http://apassionforapplique.blogspot.com/ has prepared a wonderful coloring on fabric tutorial using the "Sweet Nostalgia" October block, which you can find here http://apassionforapplique.blogspot.com/2009/11/coloring-on-fabric-tutorial.html. While you're checking it out, have a look at all of her wonderful applique quilts. Thank you Carrie. She has decided to make her blocks a little smaller and to color them using Crayola crayons. Here is a photo of her September block


Doesn't it look wonderful. I think I might try that technique on my next stitchery project.


Bye for now. I'm off to start making my "must get done before Christmas" list.


Edited November 21/09 - Carrie P. just posted this photo of the October block on her blog. Doesn't it look fabulous? Thank you Carrie for sharing it with us.

I know exactly what you mean, I feel like I'm running in circles lately! Going fast but getting nowhere.
Carrie's block is awesome! I want to do mine with crayon too.

These are super to do. I need to get them copied, so I can get them done. I hope you are getting along fine, since your website has not been updated.
