Friday!!! And the Winner is....

...The winner of the Buttermilk Give Away is Nancie Anne Quilts!!! Congratulations!!!  send me your mailing address and I will forward it to Stacy West and she will be sending it to you directly!!!

I somehow have developed a broken right shoulder is screaming!!!  But, I didn't let it stop me from doing a little stitching.  Remember this Sashiko project?  I stitched it on Maui in February...then I made the butterfly applique in Sylvia Pippin's class at Empty Spools.  Combining the 2 and a lesson from Robin on piping and I have a finished pillow for my sister's birthday :)

Mr. Chillingsworh arrived home just in time for October decorating!  Doesn't he look perfect in my entry way with the Halloween banner?!

I was blessed to spend a few hours of my birthday with my Berries stitching away.  Like the Woolies, the Berries are talking about making UFO's a priority.  We brought a project that we identified as the UFO we are going to work on whenever we stitch together...starting next month.  Cathy brought this beautiful basket quilt that just need quilting and binding...lucky girl!

Nola has a beautiful Kathy Deggendorfer fabric that needs a few more blocks, quilting and binding.

Ginn brought some blocks that need hand stitching, setting, 
layering and quilting.

Cathy found a second quilt she really wants to get off the ol' design wall...wonder what border she will decide on???

My UFO will be Stars and Sprigs...a 2015 pieced and appliqued quilt...
maybe I will finally get it done!

Karen gave us a little show in is her first quilt!!

 I love this 2 color quilt she made...has a real Scandinavian feel!

 Nola shared a table topper exchange she was doing with 
quilters on the sweet!

I am already thinking about my word for 2016...whoa...did I say 2016.  I know,  I know...I should take each holiday and month as it comes...but, I can't help but plot the disappearance of some UFO's in 2016!!!

Have a great weekend and we'll see you back here on Monday!


  1. Congrats to Nancy Anne.what a great group of ufo's you will be working on.

  2. Congratulations to Nancy! Love the pillow, that is beautiful and she will love it.


  3. The stars and sprigs is on my bucket list of quilts to make. Always loved that design! Looking forward to seeing the progress on yours! :-) I've got to say that I did not start with a word for the year (officially) though I have adopted your "release" frequently through this year. Thanks for all of your inspiration and encouragement!

  4. Oh my gosh! I'm embarrassed! How did I miss your Friday post and not realize that I was so very lucky as to have been selected the winner of Stacy's adorable pattern! I could have been doing the happy dance all weekend had I seen the news! I'm soooo excited! Thank you Stacy and are both SEW wonderful!

  5. Your pillow is just precious -- what lovely work! I'm hopping along through blogs today and saw a link to yours from Cottons 'n Wool. Happy Wednesday! :)
