Here are some other stuff I'm working on. This is the Sept BOM at the Carol Doak group in Yahoo. This is paper-pieced. I find myself now leaning towards paper piecing than doing the traditional rotary cutting process, even if the block can be rotary cut.

This is my X string quilt project. The pattern is from (for sale pattern). I'm finally making good use of my strings and scraps.

This kept me busy the whole month of August. Hubby and I replaced the carpeting with hardwood flooring. Pergo, that is. People said that it's a weekend project and that it's as easy as snapping on the planks. They lied.

Snapping on is not that bad but they didn't mention the measuring and the cutting and making templates to fit around the nasty old doorjamb to the closet, or our weird shaped and slanted walls. They don't make square or rectangular rooms anymore.

I also discovered that my husband is a perfectionist and I'm not. My motto is " Do it right the first time AND do it in the quickest possible time".

We finished the family room, living room and dining area. Whew! Even my craft room is done and all my fabrics and yarns in their own shelves and containers.

I also found out that I enjoyed going to Home Depot, Lowe's and Ikea. It was scary. I started hanging out at such places and actually loved every minute of it. My husband worried that I might take over his favorite stores. I tell you, I didn't visit any quilt stores during this period.

Here is the picture of the mystery quilt class I took at Country Sewing. The name of the quilt will remain a mystery.
