what's wrong with this picture

this morning i continued with sewing my strip sets to make more nine-patches, and when i got to the tenth strip set in my chain i noticed something wasn't quite right.
that's right. i sewed my strips wrong sides together. i looked back, and the first of the ten strip sets was sewn correctly, right sides together. but the other nine? you would think it was my first time sewing these things! SMH

on the boards

i haven't had a finish yet this summer, bnt i have made progress on a few things. i even started another new project with some fabric i have had in my stash for a couple of years. i have this obsession with French General and have several in-progress projects at various stages using their fabrics.

most recently,  i have started on this layout inspired by a mini quilt by primitive gatherings. (my second favorite shop next to french general).


little progress has been made to the chateau rouge quilt:


mostly because it was put on hold as i started working with esprit de noel:


now that i have these additional projects in the works, can i get one done before the end of the year? i do have a few more projects planned with fabric from my stash, not to mention the knitting i want to get started/finished now that fall is around the corner!
