Leafs Me Happy!



Welcome to October ... and what a way to start!

 
Leafs Me Happy Blog Hop

Hosted by Cherry of
(where you can find the complete hop schedule)
 
First, to all of you sending me
get well wishes ... I sincerely thank you!
I'm still trying to shake the bug that has
taken me out, as I hear so many others
are fighting too, but I think I finally think
I'm seeing the end of it ... yay!
Enough so that I can return to my day
job as I gotta go to work to pay the bills.
To those who know me best, this
may tell you most ... this week,
as I missed so many days of work
due to illness ... I found I didn't
even turn on my computer at home.
 
I KNOW!! 
 
Glad to be back!
and to be back with so much fun
to look forward to this week ...
 
Without Further Adieu
I share with you today my
Leafs in a Wreath block:
 
 
The pattern comes from Nancy Halvorsen's 
Acorn Hollow book for Art to Heart.
I used batiks from my stash and am in
the process of turning this block into
a table topper ... just couldn't get
it done in time for pictures for posting.
Hopefully, I can share later this week.
 
 
I know, I know ... just one block???
 
Yep ... and one block I am lucky
to have after the week I had!
However, not to be disappointed, 
I share with you the rest of today's
marvelous artists for inspiration
in this beautiful time of year we
are experiencing (or wish we were!)

 
Monday 1
Why-Knot-Kwilt (you are here...)
 
Thank you Cherry for your cheerleading skills!
 
Each day until the 10th, there will be more
Fall inspriation to enjoy ...
 ... join me?
Happy Hopping and thank you for your visit!

  2. I sincerely wish you were better, but a very nice block nevertheless! Oh I'd say it is better to complete one block than to attempt 100 and fail them all! Get better soon!

'The' quilt is pieced, it needs to be quilted yet. Not sure how I am going to quilting it. Looking forward to my favorite part...the binding. I love how it turned out. It wasn't that bad after I got going. Thanks for sharing in the hop...hugs Pauline
