Elephants Abound

What a busy week sewing I've had.

Last week Michelle posted this baby quilt along with the instructions.
Thank you!
I just had to try it and am happy that I did.


A friend of mine asked me if I could make her a baby quilt for her niece.
The couple doesn't know what they are having so neutral I needed to go.
 I think this fits the bill nicely.

I'm hoping that the aqua border works. 
I am second guessing myself.
I also can't seem to come up with a name for this quilt.


I've used the elephants before in a different baby quilt that I made called Elephant Walk.

Yesterday morning we had the most wonderful looking moon going down.
Somehow, the pictures never look as fantastic as it does in person.
It was still fairly dark so this as good as it gets.

 
On the long weekend in September I took a trip out to Radium to visit my mom and dad.
They have a trailer out there and it is a beautiful place to retreat to.


The weekend was lovely - good company, food and weather!!


You can see I was working hard,
or hardly working!!

I have decided that I like Fall.
I think Fall grounds us. 
It makes us look forward to the year ahead and sets our focus.
It's a time to prepare for Winter and think about what we want to accomplish.

I even find myself wandering through the bookstore and eyeing 
the neat pens, folders, and sticky notes.
Always was a sucker for those kinds of things.

Enjoy your weekend and all that it holds for you.
I am linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts who is hosting Finish it Up Fridays.

  3. Lovely baby quilt, Shauna and the aqua strip makes it 'pop!' Tricky one to name if you don't want to use 'elephant' in the title ...there's a nice bit of advice I found for you here:
