Tonight we had our Young Women in Excellence program. The girls shared one of their projects that they did from their Personal Progress this year. They were all awesome. I was asked to speak on how completing the Personal Progress requirements as an adult/leader has blessed me. I truly LOVE the Young Women's program and the opportunities it gives each of the girls!

Happy Autumn or Fall!
Finished the school bags, they are going to be filled with school supplies and then go to children in places such as Haiti.
I have been making lots of these tissue paper flowers for our up coming Young Women in Excellence program next week. I will try to remember to take pictures to share next week. I learned how to make them from a friend who got the idea from the Martha Stewart web page.

It was a beautiful day at the beach on Isle of Palms here in South Carolina and many people thought so too!
There was plenty of room for surfing or fishing!
It is always a good idea to have a surf buddy!
Ken is one of Darren's Surf buddies.
I do like how this one turned out it does help to have your back to the sun!
I know this is a small wave, but I did catch him on the top;)
I think they like their job!
Soon to be Grandparents and loving it!
It's hard to say goodbye to summer, but we do welcome Fall and who knows there may be a few beach days left!

The sun is not staying out as long and that tends to make me blue. I think that is why we have so many pretty Fall colors that help warm the soul a little longer.
This is my June block, now I need to come up with one for August any ideas would be appreciated. It is our anniversary month and I am not sure how to tie that in.
Here are a few more I-Spy blocks still looking for a swap to join.
These are fun little bags to make. By using two fat quarters you get 4 of them. The pattern came from the Fall Issue of Quilts and More. They have a free pattern there under Fat Quarter Friendly and then Free Bag Patterns. I have plans for more of these cuties. I would love to know if this is something you might be putting on your sewing list for this fall!
I am sewing for a service project this month, we are helping make school bags and donating the supplies that go in them. At the end of the month we will get together to stuff the bags. For more info go here.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
