WOW – September 4, 2013

Can’t believe its September already. This year has gone so fast.  Ian and I have our birthdays in a week and you know you are getting old when your son turns 23 and is buying his own place.  We had a meeting yesterday with the loan officer and everything is approved and now just has to go to escrow.  Ian and I have accomplished so much in the last three weeks.  The closing is September 26th and he will be moving in on the 28th. 
I found a photo on my camera of the dress that I made Catherine.  It was not complete when I took this you can see pins on her shoulders but better than no photo. 

I still managed to get quite a bit of sewing done this week.  I finished the fourth Chateau Hexagon block.  It came in the mail on Saturday and I had it done before I went to bed that night couldn’t help myself. 

I have made a little progress on the second block to my house quilt. Sill quite a lot of sewing to do on this one. 

Monday my husband went fishing and the kids went to PAX so I had the house to myself and I decided to put the top together for my Betsy’s Closet quit.  I forgot how nice the fabrics I picked were they have been sitting in a bin waiting to be made in to something for months now.  This photo is kind of strange because I had it over another quilt on my design wall.  I will have to take better photos of this it’s so cute. 
Lastly my Dr. Who quit center is complete and I started working on the border. 

I wanted to share with you a few photos of my daughter Chloe.  She made this costume for PAX this weekend.  It’s the character Alice form a video game.  The blood is just paint no real killing going on.  I think she did such a great job making this character come to life. I took the close up of her so you could see her eyes she used contacts to make her eyes a different color.

Ok everyone have a wonderful week.  I’m going crazy over everyone’s Love Entwined quits.
