September snap, it's Fall

The summer whizzed by and now Fall has arrived. September was busy mailing things here and there.

Haven @do.good stitches blocks for Emilee were 2 low volume scrappy trips around the world.

September Birthday Bandy Swap was for Cinda. I went bright and chose orange and pink linen. Did some improv piecing and some embroidery on the shoe bags. I threw some metallic threads into the mix on the traveling jewelry case and made them all bright enough to find in any suitcase. There are a few other little things in the package, but somethings need to be a surprise.

Interior of zippered jewelry case. LOTS of pockets a zippered mini pouch and padding to protect everything.
I also finished and bound 2 quilts and started on a third, but those will be in another post a bit later. (One of them is a Christmas gift and well, can't spoil that surprise).
