Past the Halfway Mark

I hope everyone is enjoying awesome weather in their little corner of the world.  Temperatures here are in the mid 20 degrees, and yesterday was the first official day of fall! 
Harvest is in full swing and combines are running all over the country side. 
It is time to turn my thoughts to cleaning up the yard and gardens......but first I had to show you a quick peek at my progress on my Pomegranate Quilt.

There are now nine finished blocks, and there are a total of 16 in the quilt....over halfway there!  Chances are this will not be finished anytime soon, but it always sits next to my chair waiting for me to work on it!  I am going to try to add a little touch of purple (a nice muted purple, nothing bright!!) to it. Not to much, just a flower center or two.  I will let you know how it looks:)

New Freezer Paper Templates.  I thought it was time for a new set, the old ones were starting to get too fuzzy and were not sticking so well.

Next Block ready for stitching

Happy Stitching to all.  Make sure you get a chance to go out and enjoy the fall colors.  I have seen some beautiful fall quilts while checking out different blogs.  It really makes you want to pick up and start a new project, with some oranges, golds, greens, get the idea!!

Until next time,

We Have a Winner..

And the winner is.........(insert drumroll!!).....woolensails!!  

Thank you so much to everyone who left a comment for my first draw.  It was fun to wake up every morning, grab a cup of coffee and sit down to see who left me a little message.  It is amazing to me that technology can bring so many people across the globe, with similar interests, together.  

I haven't been doing much in the way of quilting this past week, so no pics to share :(  The kids are heading back to school on Tuesday so hopefully I will be able to steal a moment or two and fit a little stitchin' in!

Happy stitching,
