September Step

This is my September Step. I've already been at work on it for a couple of hours, and all of the blue and yellow sections have now been quilted. All I have left are the red, orange, pink and purple sections. Yay! I might just meet this goal for a change. That would be SO nice!!

I'm actually hoping to be finished with the quilting by tomorrow, so I can bind and label it on Thursday. It needs to be delivered to the County Fair by Friday. Goals, and all that... ;)

I've gone through my dozens of spools of thread and realize that I don't have any orange quilting thread. Can you imagine? What am I thinking, not stocking up on orange! As soon as I'm done here, I'm off to see if I can find a spool of variegated orange. I'd also like to find a more interesting purple. The one I have on hand is "wisteria" and if it's variegated, the color changes are so slight I can barely see them.

And then it's over to Michael's to pick up some foam core to mount my photographs. I got brave (or foolish) this year and had a few printed for "competition." I put the word in quotation marks, because I use it loosely. My branding photos excite me, but it remains to be seen if they excite anyone else.

And I guess that's about it. Good luck with September, Steppers!!

Well last night I dyed a piece of fabic wisteria and it is like no color at all! So then I made a dye solution with 1/4 tea of brown and then one of 1/4 tea of black I hope that they turn out better. Wisteria is forever off my radar.
