It is day 3 of the Ultimate Blog Challenge (UBC). Also, the third day for the cozy fall decorating challenge. On the UBC the suggestion is to blog about what we do during this season that’s different.
Since I encourage women to follow their heart and do the activities that bring them joy, I take my own advice and sew and/or attend quilt shows. While I did check out the quilts at both the county fair and state fair, there were no pictures taken. Also, have not attended a Quilt Show yet this season.
Since I haven’t been to a show, I have been sewing, which is why my dinning room table is a collection of sewing ideas.
When I run out of room of the table for my projects, or projects to be, the living room furniture makes a perfect stand-in. Currently the rocking chair holds a quilt project and most of the fabrics that will be added to it.
In an attempt to “decorate” and fully participate in the Cozy Fall Challenge, I decided to work on the table in the corner. Technically it’s a sewing table, it used to house a Singer Treadle sewing machine. Now, it’s more decoration than anything. I topped it with a quilt of mostly fall fabrics, a candle holder, my fall flowers, and the bear. The grandboys called my husband Bear, and I have several bears scattered throughout the house in his memory.
Later the toppings will change, but for now, for this challenge, this is it. Oh, by the way, the railing behind the table isn’t really a rail of any kind. It’s part of my quilting frame, which may get put up later this month. After all, fall and winter are perfect quilting seasons.
