farewell October

October is my busiest month.  Truly, every year.  Perhaps it's the ramp-up from the summer, with August, September and October each building on the last until we reach full, holiday speed.  I love October - the hints of fall and our anticipation of family traditions.  But, oh, how it gets me each time!

Today I made October bee blocks for the Love circle of do. Good Stitches.  Thank goodness, Jacey asked for really simple stitch and flip triangles.  I sorted out my blue, green, orange and yellow triangle scraps from all the others,

sewed them to opposite corners and finished the blocks up with a good trim.  So easy!  If there's anything I like as much as being a part of this do. Good team, it's using up some scraps each month.  And, if there's anything I like more than using up scraps, it's using up triangle scraps.  Wee!

So that's one more thing crossed off my list!  I'm relieved it got done in October.

Only four months left now till baby is due.  Doesn't that seem like such little time?  I asked Brandon last night and he said it still feels like a good bit of time. 

That silly man.

  1. Simple but effective blocks! I remember when I was having my first (and my second too) and I got to 3 months to go and got a bit panicky, feeling 'I'm not ready for this' and 'I don't know how to look after a baby!' but it passed by again after a short time. As it happened for both I figured it was just my hormones messing with my head, seems to happen a lot when you're pregnant. And you're right 4 months will pass in what seems like no time.

  2. Love these scrap busting blocks. 4 months is a good amount of time, but you'll have all the festivities in that time that will speed things up more than if it was 4 months in the middle of the year, if that makes sense. Can't wait to see your Fall unfold. :)

    1. Yes, that is what I'm thinking too. These next two months always fly by every year so...

  3. I have about four months left too. It seems like everyone I know who is pregnant is due in January to early March. I like the block too. I love easy bee blocks. Unfortunately, my queen bee asked for a 24" block which seems rather insurmountable at the moment.

  4. I have four months left too, February 20 is my date. And I am starting to freak a little, no sewing yet, no crib yet... I need to sort my scraps to make something with them.

    1. Wow, so many of us due around the same time! Crossing fingers for you that you get to have a go at some baby sewing soon. I hope to get to the sheets this week.
