Late Maniac Monday

I am a few days late with Maniac Monday but I  wanted to post anyway. I have had a good week and have gotten a few things done. 

But first I wanted to thank everyone who stopped by my blog for the dots on dots Blog Hop. The turn out for me was so much greater than I could ever have hoped for. I had 80+ comments and a few people even decided they liked what I do and became followers. THANK YOU!! 

This is the block I made for my September partner for Block Swap Adventure. She asked for 30's or 40's fabrics in an older style star. I love the way this block turned out. 

For Parma Quilters Anonymous, a quilt group I started in my home town, we are doing a little quilt along. These are August and September blocks. I made three of the September blocks. I can't wait to put this quilt together. It will finish to look like this one.

For Saturday Sampler at my LQS this is my August stitchery. I love the ants. Someone's husband said they look like tiny cows. HA HA

I finished my September Schnibbles before the end of the month. I used a left over Halloween charm pack. This pattern is a new pattern by the creator of Schnibbles. It only uses the new "Candy" 2 1/2 inch squares Moda is coming out with. So fun!!

This is one of the two Plus Sign quilts I am making for a charity my church is giving to for Christmas. It is huge, my husband had a hard time holding the quilt and he is 6' 3"! 

I also recovered my mini ironing board. This was getting bad and the insulation was showing through. 

I also made a pillow to go with my daughter's Senior quilt. 

Then this morning I redid my wreathe that is hanging on my front door. I love Fall so this needed to be all orange and yellow and red. I have discovered an cool cheap trick. I used orange and red Loofah's to cover the wreathe and as a bow. Very cheep and easy to work with. I hope this helps get everybody in a festive Fall mood.

So for my list I got a few more things knocked off!
