September is here, the kids are back at school. The last couple of months of the year always seem to race by. The planning for the upcoming holidays, time to spend with family. Getting started with all the Secret Santa projects....
Before all that starts, we went for a long walk, along one of the nature trails over the long weekend. It has been hot, humid, so instead of staying indoors, we headed out early.
Lots of wild flowers are blooming, the colours bright and beautiful.
Met this frog on the banks of the stream, he was just relaxing in the shade. Did not hop away, like most frogs do. He was no afraid of humans. Saw many people walking with dogs, including one that was having fun playing in the water, with a big stick. He kept taking it back to his loved ones, he made sure everyone got a turn to toss his stick!
Also got a chance to sew a few more blocks for Stars in His Crown. This will be a nickle quilt, using leftovers from the charm quilt.
One block almost done. Still have to add the cream fabric to create the square.
A quarter segment, of one block.
Playing with a background, it was a white muslin. Will try the cream as well. The blue fabric next to it, is the fabric for the alternating blocks.
