Fall 2021 Current Project #2, Weeks #3 & 4

I’m behind a bit on posting my progress so I’m combining two blocks in one post. This was the second Fall 2021 Current Project to begin. Week #3 block came out last week and block #4 came out yesterday. This wall hanging/table topper is Snowmen & Silent Night. Jacquelynne Steves is sharing this project via email.

October 2021 – Goals, UFOs & OMG

It’s hard to believe that Fall is here. Nights are getting cooler and daytime temperatures are no longer in the 90’s. This time of year you need to dress in layers as it might be chilly in the morning, but shorts & short-sleeves are required during the daytime. Speaking of daytime, we are approaching shorter and shorter days with later sunrises and earlier sunsets. This month has many things requiring my attention other than sewing, but I will get in as much as I can. In addition to APQ’s UFO Challenge and Elm Street Quilt’s OMG, I’m planning on trying to keep up with my Fall 2021 Current Projects.

(OK, for those not in the quilting world – UFO stands for UnFinished Object, and OMG means One Monthly Goal.)
