Fall is in the air and

lots of projects getting done in the sewing room!

Playing with the embroidery machine and  
 Napkins and coasters get done ...
Then it's time for new place mats.
My sister introduced me to this pattern  

and I made 12 using the Wild Rose by Blackbird

I really like the shape of these. They fit so well on the table.

 My second daughter Liette has been fond of Anne of Green Gables since she was a little girl and it it still holds true in her adult life. She has a collection of Anne of Green Gables paraphernalia so when I went to PEI, I found the fabric... 

Perfect for place mats.. this is work in progress. I even think Anne inspired Liette to become a teacher ♥♥
So fall for me means a routine and lots of projects on my "want"
to-do list...


  1. I have loved the Anne of Green Gables stories for many years. Wish I could visit PE.

  2. I discovered your blog through a friend that was at your quilt show in August. Your placemats are beautiful and I love the Anne fabric. I picked up yards of it in July when we were on our annual vacation in PEI. I must look up that pattern. It is so different.
