See You In September Blog Hop, My Day


Thanks to Shari, aka Fearless Leader and Madam Samm, the creator of this Hop, for giving us a platform to share our creations. We are required to make three projects, one showcasing Riley Blake Gingham. RBD was considering discontinuing their gingham line. How silly was that! The medium gingham has been saved. Alas the small and large patterns will be gone. Hey, we still have the medium, which I find just about right for my projects. The other items we made were our choice.

 My last minute pictures were taken in the rain. The remnants of Hurricane Norbert are passing through today and tomorrow. I won`t be covered in dust, a bonus.

I crocheted a warm, cozy  hat with a pom pom on top.  Just for me. The dog carried it to bed a few days ago. A stamp of approval!



A hot pad for my daughter in law. The pad is lined with Insulbright and Warm and Natural Cotton Batting. I`m also going to make her a matching table topper. The fabric was given to me a few years ago. I like the quaint print. I love my daughter in law!




I made this table mat for me.  The gingham is Riley Blake. The print is Moda`s Glamping. It`s lined with flannel and backed with lime green Kona Cotton. I liked working with scraps.

Below is the list of today`s presenters. Please visit them and enjoy their creations.

I haven`t been able to visit previous posts for this Hop. I promise that I`ll catch up with all of you.

    1. It`s been as cold as 11 below zero Fahrenheit here. Our winters are usually cold and dry. The hat`s great. I love to crochet. Too bad the dog likes it too! Thank you for commenting Madam Samm.

  7. Great winter hat...are you sure Sam brought it for you and not as a way of telling you "he" needed help to put it on LOL. It looks very soft and warm. Super hot pad (nice fabric) and table topper. I love the medium-sized gingham too! I'm so glad some RBD gingham is here to stay!

  11. The cap with the pompon is sooo nice, I know it can be very cold in the desert in winter time, I lived some years in the Namibian desert and I never froze that much without heating..... I would have been very happy to wear such a lovely crocheted cap, really.
    I love your quilt, nice with the gingham!

  12. Third time trying to tell you all your projects are spiffy, sweet that Sam took your hat to bed, he must be comforted by your scent.

    Lucky DIL to get that cute pot holder.

    Thinking of you...

    1. Thank you Nancy. My son`s Boxer will be living here as of today. She is 10 and they can`t care for her anymore. Sam will like that. Sorry you had a hard time commenting. I had that problem earlier today. This Hop was difficult. It`s hard me to be cheerful some days or meet a goal. I finished. Yipee!

  15. Cathy I love that print in your gingham quilt! I haven't seen it before but since we're leaving on a camping trip Sunday it really caught my eye. And I admire your ability to make that hat - I can knit or crochet straight rows...and that's all. :) blessings, marlene

    1. Hi Marlene. That trailer pattern is Moda`s Glamping. I thought it was cute. I love red. Michael Miller has a design called Trailer Travel. The dominant colors in that are turquoise, gray and red. My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was eight or ten.

  16. I'll bet your DIL loves having you for her MIL! That is a cute print.

    Your little hat is so sweet and the gingham in red is wonderful.

  24. Great projects! I love the hat. I wish I could do something like that, but I don't have the skills to make something that cute. Thank you for sharing.

  25. Sweet! Loved the table topper with it's happy red gingham. Pairing it with Glamping was perfect. Fall has hit us hard and early - it's been in the 40s at night and stays plenty cool during the day. Sure hope this earliness doesn't mean winter is coming soon, too!!! :)

  34. I own some Glamping fabric and love love love it but have never made a camping quilt as I originally planned. Did you make a larger quilt at some point with that fabric? If so, I would love to see what you made. I can't find it anywhere now. Isn't hopping fun? I love all the great ideas.

  37. What a wonderful hat! I wish I could crochet - just not my thing. Your daughter-in-law is going to be thrilled with the hot pad. Your quilt is adorable. I love the red/white gingham. The green on the back has to be gorgeous. I read that you recently became a widow and you are losing a best friend. I am sorry. I lost my husband a year ago in July. Things are still a mess in my life from it. I have attended two sessions of Grief Share and just started with a different group of it. That has helped or I would be non-functioning, I think. I've been to visit my daughter more - not because of that, just her needs for a sitter. i took my first trip abroad. I'm just trying to put one foot in front of the other. Thanks for participating and sharing a bit of your summer with us. Blessings my friend!

  41. I love your projects! The hat looks comfy. Sam has the right idea! I am getting back into crocheting lately. But up till now I have had to rip up everything I made. Turns out, I suck at crochet! Who knew.....A hot pad is always handy. Your daughter in law will be very pleased with that one!. Your table mat is beautiful! Thank you for sharing your summer.

  44. Cathy, you and I are rowing the same boat with losing our husbands recently. My sympathies to you and your family as I know what you might be going through. Maybe working on the hop projects was some comfort to you? Varied interests to keep you busy.
