The first photo is of DH and me on top of Pothole Dome in Tulolumne Meadows, Yosemite National Park.
And the second photo is the fabric postcard that I made last month for an exchange, hopefully it's been received in Australia by now.
Here are my 30 seconds of 1SE (One Second Everyday):
I finished the Stitch Happens quilt.
I made a fabric postcard for an exchange and sent mine off to Australia.
I took a BAMQG zoom class with Christina Camelli on wedge quilts and got a very good start on a practice one.
I made some more Pantone Project blocks.
I did some road stitching on my handwork piece.
I did some family visiting stuff and also went camping in Yosemite and hiked A Lot with DH.
That was pretty productive for September.

September has come and gone, and here's how I kept myself entertained, interested, and maybe educated. A cornucopia of links to things I've enjoyed online this past month. The photo above is from our time in Shenzhen, China. It was a sign expressing the theme for the development of the free trade zone, a famous saying about why China needed to turn into a more capitalistic version of itself.
Hooray for bringing back the yearly dahlia show at Stonehenge. Beautiful pictures.
Want to learn more about Gelli Plate Printing? There's a Gel Printers Summit happening in October.
This is a really nice looking free tote bag design with a great tutorial to go with it.
I love Lynda Barry, she's a great teacher, not just for learning to draw, but for life in general. `~`~`~`~`~`~`~`~`~
I rather like this table runner design. I might print out the curved template and see if it matches up with the Wonder Curve ruler or not.
Here's a video on how to clean your Machingers quilting gloves, Murphy's Oil Soap, genius!
A really interesting podcast series from The Nocturnists, Post Roe America, on how the Supreme Court's Dobbs decision has affected medical providers. A lot of points of view you rarely get to hear.
