Indian Summer

DSC04593    2

The weather man says today will be the last day of Indian Summer....changes are coming!  Which means staying inside in the sewing room.  Not a bad thing, really, as Christmas is looming up on the horizon.  How is your gift-making coming?  Would you like some more tutorials?

Fee from Designs By Fee has the most darling little needlebook tutorial -


so sweet!

Melody from The House On The Side Of The Hill has a very sweet owl scissors keep and needle book!


Shell from The Raspberry Rabbits has a beautiful Friendship Stars Tutorial, done up in a lovely table runner!


Linda from Buzzing and Bumbling has a great tutorial for an insulated lunch or gift bag, very clever!


Elisa from Bits From The Scrap Basket has a great tutorial for making the perfect 1/4" border, I need to try this, very striking!

Jocelyn from Happy Cottage Quilter has a darling fall leaf garland tutorial!

And for the crocheters, Yarn Muse has an excellent tutorial for a Crocodile Stitch Scarf,  I so want to try this one!

Karen from Flamingo K's Blogabout could use your prayers, her newest grandbaby Miranda is in NICU - bless her, she seems like quite the fighter.

And now for my news - the quilts are DONE, labeled and ready.  Today I'm finishing up the last project with the remaining blocks, then I just need to find a box!  Stay tuned!

Hi Allie! Such gorgeous fall pics I've missed here.... it's our last day to live, so to speak, as well! Hope you've made the most of it. I look forward to seeing what a confinement to your sewing room might yield. And thanks, as always, for sharing so many helpful links!

These are cute projects and my favorites are those two owls.

Gorgerous tree! Is that in your yard? We have a couple of trees that are almost that color, but actually they are dead.....drought and heat.

Hillbilly Tonya said...

Thanks for the links! I think I need to check out that owl one first...

jan said...

The tree is gorgeous! Hard to believe that we are coming down the home stretch of 2011!

Karen said...

So far I haven't made anything for Christmas yet. My next month challenge is going to be to get my christmas sewing done! I'm sure I'll be searching through your tutorials then for some ideas.

Mama Spark said...

Wonderful links! Thank you for sharing them!!

VivJM said...

Oh Allie, you are the best and finding great tutes!

Karen said...

When I lived in the north, a fall Indian Summer day was my favorite time of year. Warm and full of color. Now I just have warm and full of green.

Linda said...

This weather is amazing!!! You are so right Indian Summer indeed!

Stitched With Prayer said...

Thanks Allie for all the great links. They are all wonderful but I especially love the Friendship Stars table runner. Friendship Stars are one star block that is so easy I can even to it without problems, LOL. Big Hugs...

Michelle said...

What a gorgeous tree! And a terrific picture. :-)

Hmmm...nothing to say but LOVE YA girlfriend!
Can you move to NC and be my neighbor so we can play every day! Oh pretty pretty please! hee,hee,hee.

what beautiful colours. In our part of the world, we don't experience the colours of autumn or spring. Not as brilliantly as other places, anyway. Enjoy the last of the warmth - we are heading into the hot part of the year. Never my favourite! Are you likely to have a white Christmas? I think that would be so lovely. Enjoy the sewing.

Sharon said...

Love your tree!!

Thanks for all the great links. I really like that 1/4 inch border one. . .very clever!

em's scrapbag said...
