It can't be September!

It's been a while since my last post. I've been keeping up with reading the blogs on my Bloglines, but posting my own is another story.

The last week-end in August, Jim and I, along with my brother and two sisters and their spouses, were on a Tigers Fantasy Bus to Toronto to see two Tigers/Jays ballgames. We stayed at the same hotel as the team and were able to get many pictures and autographs before and after the games. Here's Connie, Jhonny Peralta, me and Armando Gallarraga. Unfortunately, we lost both games, but they were exciting and close. We also had Willie Horton from the 1968 World Series Champion Tigers and Dan Petry from the 1984 World Series Champion Tigers on the bus with us. What a fun time!

Projects I've been working on include block 9 for the Civil War Tribute Quilt, the center block for the Medallion quilt, a seasonal wallhanging, mini using leftover HSTs and my next set of swap blocks. (no pic of those yet)

The weather has cooled down nicely and fall is definitely in the air. I love the fall season and hope it lasts well into winter.

Love block 9 of the Civil War Tribute quilt. I haven't heard of that one. The pattern is amazing!

Glad you had fun at the ballgame.

Happy stitching,

Looks like a fun bus trip to the game. I love your medallion center and the little HST quilt.
