September PSQ charm swap

 Are you ready for the September PSQ Charm Swap?

Have you been cutting squares like a mad (wo)man? 
I have lots of charms already cut and stored in boxes and it was quite easy to fill up small plastic bags with 100 charms in each - ready to fly out of Mauritius. :)  

You can read more about the swap here 
... and here is all the info you need BEFORE you sign up for the swap.

OPAM finishes for August


Where did August go?! I must have been busy! Actually I have; house & garden, and quilting - of course. One week went by to paint the bedroom walls and while doing that, 'Nina' was in for a long overdue service. Got her back yesterday and I'm ready for more productive days. :)

Autumn is my favorite time of the year and I love the colors. I'm definitely living in the wrong country; no such colors here in the tropics. 
I've been working with autumn themed fabrics lately and here's a few items...

Set of 4 place mats

Table runner

I've had these flannel fabrics for ages and decided to turn them into a baby quilt. 

A finished UFO table topper. You can see it here as a UFO.  

Enough snowman fabric for a candle mat

A set of 2 Christmas place mats

These items are for sale in my Etsy shop

I'm currently working on some Halloween mug rugs. I thought I didn't have Halloween themed fabric, but yes, I found a few! :)

Do you stick to your fabric diet so far this year? I had forgotten I'm on fabric diet and have bought way too many fabrics lately, but how to avoid beautiful autumn- and Christmas fabrics?! I hope to do better the rest of the year and ONLY buy what I actually need! :)
