At the end of my hallway--September

My younger sister took some family pictures for us just recently.  Let's just say it was pretty chaotic, and she even brought her husband for crowd control.  I debated on what to have everyone wear.  The day before I decided to make skirts for our girls from some Chicopee corduroy.  I'm participating in a little blog hop with Westminster/FreeSpirit later this year.  Due to a mix-up, I received the wrong box of fabric in the mail for my project.  Instead I received four different yards of beautiful Chicopee corduroy prints.  My correct fabric was resent just a couple days later, but they offered to let me keep the Chicopee, which I was thrilled about.   I learned this just the day before our pictures so I frantically whipped up simple skirts for the girls with two of the prints.  I must say I adore the skirts and want to make myself a skirt with the orange plaid.  The prints are really fun and perfect for fall.




I love October.  I think it is my favorite month.  Generally the weather is pretty reasonable, the leaves continue to change, and I get to start wearing sweaters again.  I have lots of projects to share this coming month that I've been saving up for a while including two finished quilts I'm taking to Sewing Summit.  I also just finished a quilt that will be heading to Market so I'll share pictures of that at the end of the month as well. I received my name tag in the mail just today for Quilt Market and am very excited. I'm definitely looking forward to the coming month.

So what is hanging at the end of your hallway this month?  Share your favorite project for September.  I may just pick a lucky winner from the links this month and send you a little package from Sewing Summit Shop Hop!

  4. Your family photos are priceless!! Just adorable! Also love the month of October. Athough I live in a country were the weather is mild, December and January are quite cold so when September comes to an end and October starts there is a feel good lazy melancholy that makes me wanna stay at home and enjoy just being there. With a good cup of hot tea in hand..of course!

  15. Those are wonderful pics! The skirts are great - I didn't even realize the corduroy was available yet - I'll have to look at some more shops - that is at the top of my wish list.

  16. Your pics turned out so cute! I love the one where your younger daughter is snuggling her big sister. Precious. My daughter LOVES skirts--I think a new corduroy one sounds like just the thing, and so satisfying to make because it is quick and will get lots of use.

  18. This skirts are just too cute! I love the corduroy. I had a shipping mix up recently -- sent me two yards of fur instead of 22 yards of linen! I didn't get to keep the fur, but I was OK with that -- it shed all over my floor, lol :)
