Progress was made on my One Monthly Goal, but it is not a quilt yet. Good thing there are a few more days in the month. Might there be more progress made before December? We will see.

I went into the sewing room planning to finish off the black star block. Alas, I left the black fabrics on the cutting table 3 weeks ago and 'someone' showed his displeasure with my lack of sewing time this month on it. It has now been through the wash twice and dried... so I cut and made the brown star block I needed.
While there, I had these bits of Kansas Troubles fabrics on the cutting board, so I sewed them together and got this 6 x 6.5 inch little mug rug. Instead of a binding, I did the easy turn method.

I did add a little stitching to this on Sunday. I did not pick it up last night at all.
Greg has been doing the running this week and took Emily to school to feed the animals Monday and Tuesday morning, then took the dog to get his nails trimmed Monday and took Aidan for his first cavity (filling) at age 14 and some sealants added to his back teeth on Tuesday. I got the guitar lesson trip Monday night and might do the animal feeding driving Tuesday afternoon. We will see. It is nice to not be running here and there all the time!
With F1 racing done for the season, Aidan and I were chatting about his F1 subscription on the way home last night. Turns out, they have the old races available for watching so he pulled up a race at Spa from 1998 I think. Lots of crashes and only 6 or 7 finished the race! Lots of comments on the lack of safety measures and the picture quality. Was it really that bad... I guess we have improved things a lot in the last 25 years!

It is a rainy cool day today. I am being a wee bit lazy today and resting. I did get up and watch the last F1 race of the year this morning. Grandma came and picked up Emily for the day. Seems Aidan was up chatting with a friend online until 3AM and is quite tired today!
I should go sew the last 2 16 patch stars in the sewing room... but I think I'll put on a movie and do some hand quilting on the Bear Paw quilt today instead!
I did make some progress on EPP and Brimfield Awakening this week. I need to prep some more fabrics to keep moving on this as well. I'm planning to try this flat back stitching when I put them together.

I've eagerly been awaiting a Mystery bundle from Missouri Star Quilts to arrive. I figured a variety of fabrics would be a fun way to spend my birthday $ this year.
I was very happy with the bundle and Emily was kind enough to lay them all out. Quite a variety of fabrics, batiks, some cute chickadee and snowmen and a lovely Dr. Seuss in the kitchen. It will be fun to add these into scrappy projects. Quite a few are half a yard or more. Only one is a 4 inch WOF.
I also got my fabric bundles I ordered for the Bonnie Hunter mystery this year from Cotton to Quilts. I'll add a bit from my stash as well, but this will help to add some variety in the purple, light teal and oranges. The orange and purple really needed some enhancement! There is an adorable orange with white spider webs from the above mystery bundle that will get added to the quilt too!
