A Very Productive Week - Autumn Wool Stitchery

I finished this little wool autumn wall hanging the other day. The border was a bit darker than I would have liked. Why is that when you order a kit, you discover that they have substituted different fabric from that depicted in the original photo?  It will be fine though if I hang it in a bright area.

 A woman in our quilt guild coordinates efforts to bring quilts and pillowcases to the children of soldiers being deployed. The three on the right are made of a fun pirate treasure map fabric.

Here are four comfort pillows for breast cancer patients. While looking for something else in my sewing room the other day, I came across a bag of colorful, six inch batik blocks that I had worked on several years ago. Why I hadn't assembled them into a quilt back then, I don't know. Anyway, they are now up on my design wall, and I have begun sewing them together.

Best part of this week? Learning that I don't have to wear the big, black boot on either foot any longer and that I may start taking Emma for walks again!!!

Go Pats!!!!!!!!!!!!!
