Red Rosy, Red Rosy

September's RSC block challenge is inspired by roses.
Red and gold roses.

September Kite Tail #1: Owl Rose
September Kite Tail #2: Dragonfly Rose
My August blocks are hiding there under the roses. It is a full pizza box, which means we are getting close to assembly!
Summertime Kite Tails: Majestic Watermelon Roses
Last month, our blocks were inspired by Purple Mountains.

And my Baby Courthouse block for August turned out kind of cute!
this is my 300th blog post! I knew it was coming, but I did not prepare a proper celebration. My bad!
I sure wish I could invite ya'll over to celebrate.

I enjoy the social side of blogging SO much, and feel fortunate to meet quilter's who live all over the world, right from the comfort of my home. 300 posts is a lot of writing for someone who does not actually enjoy writing! Sometimes I wonder how many more quilts I could finish per year if I did not blog (a reoccurring thought, generally right before a post is due). I  always come to the same conclusion once I've thought it over: The rewards of documentation, conversations, laughter, and resourceful friendships are well worth the time spent. Although I've had to cut it back this year and have not been able to participate in hops, giveaways, or QAL's much, I am considering some options for One Monthly Goal in 2017 to improve all that. For now, my sincere appreciation will keep you all at bay!

For the friendships, encouragement, kudos, and virtual hugs, I sincerely want to Thank You!

I will be back with another update soon so I can share the house blocks I have been working on!

Quilting is more fun than Housework
