Welcome to sewing Saturday... the weekly round-up around here. The hexie star above is very Fall like isn't it? I looked back and saw the hexie star project of mine is pretty vintage! So what? Hand work is all about the process.
A few recent blocks...

I also sewed a button on DH's shirt... yes I do that too. Only now and then.
As to this year's Halloween quilt... it's been difficult to let go of the lattice project but
I researched some ideas for this year's Halloween quilt and I think I'll do some big applique blocks from this
I blew the pattern up to large enough to showcase some of my fun prints.
IF I can stop with the lattice quilt.
I'm finding out it takes a long time to sew 400 blocks together. But I'm driven and it's looking pretty.
I sewed all the blocks into 9-patches and some are dangling above the top as my wall is too small for this.
I sewed the far left section of 9-patches together row by row and it was a job but blocks look so pretty when finally sewed
That's about it. It's been a very frustrating week for me, having a really difficult time with our washer. First wait for 10 days to get a repairman out, then told Samsung isn't good in CO as our cold water rinse freezes the gel holding the stability balls causing it to go off balance then bend the drum.
We must buy a new machine.
Off to Lowes which is a trial in itself as they had the lg the repairman suggested, but then they couldn't find one of the three their computer said they had, then they found one, then put in the order, get a call back the pedestal box had no hardware, call all the other local lowes as they won't do that for us, none available, have to do the installation in stages which means each stage could then be messed up or something damaged. And the time. I am not enjoying it here. Oh and the too young inexperienced clerk at Lowes said, don't worry this happens all the time. Why?
