Manic Monday

My DH mentioned the Bangles “Manic Monday” song and now I can’t get it out of my head!  Design Wall Monday’s continue to be a great motivator for me.  My first DWM post was back in August 2009! Hop over to this week’s DWM link up on Judy’s blog here.  I have some new First Saturday blocks on my wall this week. 

I completed the Sept alternate block and both the main and alternate blocks for October, woo hoo!

I’m leaving for a retreat Wednesday and I spent some time calculating yardage for my setting choice as well as cutting the fabrics for the Civil War BOTW quilt by Barbara Brackman.

And here are the three in-progress projects I’m hoping to complete while in Shipshewana…….I can do it, right? The brightly colored project is Judy Laquidara’s Topsy Turvy Nine Patch which I worked on at retreat two years ago.

Here’s to many hours of sewing, companionship and laughter in Shipshewana!
