Quilt blocks and RAK!

It's a blustery Autumn morning here in Ireland; a good day for sorting things out and that is what I have been doing with my Autumn quilt blocks, pattern by 'Heart to Hand'

I finished off the cornucopia last night and then got all my completed blocks out to see what they look like......only 4 more to prep and sew!!!
Please excuse the colours, they look somewhat faded, but I had to use my phone as I can't find the plug to charge my camera. They say creative people rarely have an organised house-that's my excuse anyway!

This is block 7

....and block 8

A picture of the first 6 completed or thereabouts-I'm seeing a little something I might like to change!lol!

Yesterday morning, I got the most lovely surprise! Postie brought me a little package and you all know I just love getting little packages in the post.
my good friend Wendy (The Quiet Room blog) sent me a RAK, a just because, in her own words 'everyone needs a few more pumpkins'. Just look at this adorable set of pumpkins, which I have proudly displayed on my front table for all to see when they enter the front door. Sorry I can't seem to do anything about the blur, no matter how many times I took the pic.

I just love them Wendy and thank you once again for your thoughtfulness and generosity-I might add though, she has enough pumpkins to share with her village! I shall say no more, we all have our obsessions, don't we???

Happy stitching/creating or whatever makes you smile,



  1. When you get that needle in your hand you certainly go for it! You have got on so brilliantly - those blocks are just gorgeous - makes me wanna quilt too!
    How lovely of Wendy to 'grow' some pumpkins for you!
    Enjoy your sewing time!

  2. Just loving the wool pieces! I love Kathy Campbell's patterns!!

  3. SNAP!! I received the very same pressie from Wendy yesterday too - what a lovely surprise they were. Wendy is such a sweetie!!

    I had to tweak my cornocopia thingy ... wasn't doing it for me, so I made a basket instead, looks okish!
    Soooo glad you liked your Pumpkin Surprise ... got to spread the Pumpkin Lovin' ... hahaha

    I could have a very contagious (?sp) case of Pumpkinism :)
