Finished early

 I finished September a few days ago. I don't know why these circular designs go faster, but they do. I will be taking a couple of small trips in Sept and Oct. so it's alway good to be ahead of the game.

I need to put a little flower in the Sept. block, not much room there. Maybe a small Black Eyed Susan.

I received an email yesterday that my SAQA Auction piece that I showed last week has sold. That's always good news. 

I'm linking up with Off the Wall Friday.

SAQA Benefit Auction

 It's that time of the year where you can buy some wonderful affordable art from the SAQA Benefit Auction. You can read all about it here.

My piece, All Buttoned Up, is in Section 1. Bidding is between Sept 18- 24. Please read all the bidding info in the link above.

It is 12 inches square, as are all the pieces in the auction. Mine is comprised entirely of hand sewn buttons, sewn on in an ombre effect. There are tabs on the back that allow you to hang it in any direction.

 Finally finished August. All those fiddly little flowers took a long time. I'm looking forward to Sept when I am going to make circles that encompass more than one block, as I did in June. But I think I will use autumn colors. I know I am going to look at my quilt with the embroidered circles for inspiration.
