Fresh Sewing Day, The October Edition

September proved to be another productive month. Lots of little things made, and three quilts finished.
Learning to knit socks has been my biggest accomplishment. I have a lot to learn but I love the relaxing peace that comes with knitting...except when I mess up and have to rip it out or look for a dropped stitch. But, so far...I am hooked.

1. Quilt for 100 Quilts for Kids. Donated to Alexandria House
2. 2 low volume bee blocks for Hadley in the Stitch Tease bee
3. 2 Economy Blocks for Leanne in the Modern Stitching Bee
4. Baby uilt for my cousin in Slovakia's new little boy
5.My first pair of knitted socks
6. Leather Accent Tote
7. Modern Geese Quilt 
8. 2 pumpkin coasters made for a swap

Throw in 4 days in Utah at Sewing Summit and my month was pretty full.

I also made 30 jars of fig jam, most of which was donated to the local chapter of our Children's Hospital Ladies' Guild boutique sale; 24 jars of Hot Pepper Jelly and my new found favorite drink...Kombucha.

I still would like to write a blog post about making Kombucha and maybe I'll even write about my time at Sewing Summit, but right now I am preparing for house guests...a lot of them over the next 6 weeks.

Linking up with Lynne's Fresh Sewing Day.
