September is National Sewing Month!

September is national sewing month. I know I plan on doing a lot of sewing this month. How about you? What projects do you have going on or coming up?

Some of my future projects include:  working on my Stars Quilt-a-Long quilt, a couple of mug rugs for swaps, a couple of aprons, a bag or two, maybe start some other quilt-a-longs (haven't decided yet), work on some Christmas runners for a holiday boutique, start on some quilts for Christmas gifts... I could probably list many more items. I've definitely been bit by the sewing bug. I want to sew everything! I wish I had more time and money!  :)
Did you know that Melissa over at "Happy Quilting", is offering an AuriFil Thread Giveaway. Be sure to go check it out and enter for your chance to win! 

Have you noticed the "Ghastlies Blog Hop" button in my left sidebar? I am planning on participating this October. I ordered my fabric over the weekend and it shipped today. I can't wait to get it and get started. I will be making an apron with it! Perfect for Halloween or all year long! If you're interested, or curious, click on the button to go check it out.

I haven't gotten much sewing done the last couple of days. I have been designing a mug rug for a swap I'm in. I know what I want to do in my mind but not sure if I know how to do it. So instead of sewing I've been searching the internet for tutorials, etc. I now believe I know how I want to proceed so I will start with that tomorrow. Wish me luck!

I'm not the type of person who likes to beg but I just started blogging a couple of weeks ago and would really love it if you would "follow" my blog. It would really make my day! There's a place to do so to the right. Let me know you're following me and I'll be sure to return the favor. I plan on offering a giveaway when I reach 100 followers... only 96 more to go... lol!  :)   Help me please!  Thank you so very much!   :)

Until next time...
Cherise  :)
