This month's Table Scraps project is brought to you by the color aqua and the letters P and Z!
In my continuing quest to use up orphan blocks this year, I came across these pieces:

Good morning, friends! I'm joining in with LeeAnna and friends at Not Afraid of Color for I Like Thursday.
I really liked finishing up this little fall quilt for the table this week! It was one of those Drop Everything and Make It projects that I just had to make.

After my last To-Do Tuesday post, we went out of town for a week, so I didn't have a lot on the list that I was expecting to get accomplished. Since arriving back home, I've been working on getting some little projects done, and things are moving along well!
Miss Jo March (of Little Women fame) is here to show you that one cradle quilt is finished, and the second is very close! The only thing left on cradle quilt #2 is to machine finish the binding.
- Happy Blocks for the Compassion Quilts block drive at Quilting is More Fun than Housework
- The napkins to match my niece's placemats
- Send all of these items off and get my sewing area cleaned up and ready to move on to whatever's next!

I love Fall - it's my favorite season! I'm celebrating the beginning of fall today with some slow stitching projects. I've been working on this Autumn Stamp from Melisa at PinkernPunkin Quilting this week. The pumpkin, crows, and a sunflower (which is the next thing I will work on!) are perfect for a fall stitch!

I've been away from my sewing machine this week, but hand-piecing was possible and this little bowtie block is the perfect one to represent our trip!

We are back home this morning after a week away on the Oregon Coast. It was a really enjoyable getaway, and we had a great time wandering and exploring all over the place, visiting favorite places and seeing new sights.
We have a favorite little inn we stay at in Depoe Bay, and every room has a view of the bay - it's always changing.

Good morning, friends! It's To-Do Tuesday and time to share my progress on last week's list and then see what's next.
I was partially successful on the past weeks list! It looked like this:
- Work on RSC aqua blocks. ✅️
- Make some Happy Blocks for the Compassion Quilts block drive at Quilting is More Fun than Housework. ✅️
- Make napkins to go with my niece's placemats. ❌️ Nope. Would you believe I never got to the quilt shop to look for the fabric I need for these? I'll keep this on the list.

I finished stitching the Mini Squirrel Sampler this week, and love how it turned out! The squirrel reminds me of the little guys who run around our yard all the time. They're very entertaining! This one has an acorn - in our yard they are usually carrying an apple from our tree.

It's always fun to dig into a different color at the beginning of the month. My aqua stash isn't very big this year, but I found enough to get started on the zipper blocks. I've just been making three of these each month, and they will continue into 2024.
