October NewFO Chalange

October NewFO Challenge Linky Party and Giveaway

 2014 NewFO Challenge

It is time to Join the fun at Cat Patches with my new projects for October.  It is not necessary to finish a project, just start. I did a lot of both!

I did a lot of playing in October.  I played in the flower garden.  The Hexie garden.

Then I played in the pumpkin patch some more.

Then I played with my Yo-yo.

Then I played with my kitty Meow.

My daughters niece ask me to make her a Halloween costume. 

  It is from the Movie  The Ring
I did not get a photo of her in it
When I got tired of playing, I made two table runners from a kit, Not so Spooky.  

 It is  a Kimberbell design.

Then I started on Christmas. I am making 10 stockings for my daughters extended family.   The blue ones are for the adults and the red ones for the children. They will have the names on the white cuff in silver. This is a McCalls pattern

I also started on doll cloths for the younger niece in that family.

Now for my official NewFO!  Hexi Garden quilt  was featured at our Quilt Sitters Circle.  It was made with 4.5 inch hexagons.  The ruler had several sizes you could make.  I have been making miniature quilts and really enjoy them. 

 Those are cut 1.5 and finish at 1 inch.  That is a quarter in the center.

This is the 'lap' size on the block size design wall.  After I finished putting it together, it had issues.  the next to last row is not the same size on both ends.  So I have to make at least one and maybe  two blocks over.  I hope to finish it this weekend.
