Today was the debut of the Second Saturday Stitchers at the library where I work. We’ll meet monthly on Saturday mornings and bring our stitch work along to work on. It was a wonderful experience for me, the organizer of the program.
I am happy it’s September. Happy for lots of good reasons, like summer is behind us and the kids are back in school. Life has returned to normal. For me, as a librarian, that means that soon we’ll be helping kids with homework assignments instead of explaining that there are no Diary of a Wimpy Kid books on the shelf because they are all checked out and other kids are reading them.
Even though the advent of September doesn’t really mean the hot weather is over here in Texas, it at least means we have hope that the heat will break soon and we can smell fall in the air. September also means it is National Sewing Month.
I am obsessed with half-square triangles! They are the most versatile quilt block around and I have been happily designing quilts, pillows, placemats and potholders using half-square triangles. Before I show you the easy way I create half-square triangles, let me show you my latest project using them.
