1: Having made the muslin once already, the directions were so much more clear the second time around

And above that you can see the medallion block fused, and I've started machine-appliqueing the berries. I am happy to say that the majority of the fabric for this came from my stash (some of those reds are OLD!). I have a sewing weekend planned in Nov. with some quilting buddies, maybe I can get some of the quilting done then!
Here we are heading over to the U/M vs. Purdue game last Saturday..... after an early morning tailgate. Too bad my daughters couldn't join us to make it a family affair, maybe next year. We were able to meet up with some old dental school friends that we hadn't seen in MANY years, and that was the highlite of the day....well, that and a U/M victory!

These pictures were all taken Saturday night after tennis
and before Matt left to join his friends for dinner at
Ruby Tuesday's and then on to the Homecoming Dance held in the high school gym.

And here we are having lunch.......I love a tail-gate! Also, the fourth sewing buddy to join us was Margaret, and here she is joining us for lunch. It was a lovely day spent with dear friends, and now I am inspired to find more time in my week to SEW! I managed to score some fabric for a coat, exactly what I was looking for.
The one on the left is actually more blue than green, I plan to use Simplicity 4403:
and the lovely wide-wale corduroy on the right is more orange than brown, and I hope to make one of the shorter jackets with the wide collar as you can see with Butterick 5087, or perhaps a nice corduroy jumper!
