sweet gum, noodles, and progress

Fall has been very strange weather wise. I haven't really seen the beautiful fall leaves that I am used to and love. It seems, this year, the leaves are green and, then, overnight they fall. My sweet Gum hasn't made up it's mind, and it is November. strange.

For my Grand daughter's 11th birthday I made chicken and noodles, as this seems to be her favorite. Our visit was so much fun, playing games and cuddling. She is a bright spot.

This is an incredible hexie quilt made from 1/4 inch hexies. I saw this on line  but I can't remember  where. Oh my!

I have been slowly sewing scrappy hourglass blocks for my scrappy Leader/ender project with Bonnie Hunter
I have cut 288 Dark purple, blue rectangles 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 for Midnight Flight also a Bonnie Hunter quilt all cut from 2 1/2 inch strips. Now I need to cut nearly 600 2 1/2 in squares for sew and flip corners.

And I have all the string blocks ready for Blue Skies also Bonnie Hunter design.
But, mostly, having my husband home on sick leave has thrown my attempts at a schedule for a loop. So I am not getting much sewing time.  Plus, I am pondering my quilting life a bit. I think I need to stay on task more, and face my finishing "fears".  I want to try some more applique next year.
