The second event I'm sewing behind the scenes for is this little cutie's birthday party, mid-October!!!
We got to spend some time with her, our daughter & son-in-law and 2 granddogs over the Labor Day weekend! 
The birthday party theme is llamas and cactus, so look for some related stitching, to be revealed after the party, mid-October!!!

The third event I've been stitching for behind-the-scenes is the National Cat Day Quilt Link Party over at Susan's blog, QuiltFabrication. It will start on National Cat Day, October 29th, and run for several days. I have a new Japanese-inspired cat quilt I will share on that day! So get ready to link up your cat quilts and/or quilt cats on that day!!! You can link from a blog or Instagram.

I invite you to come back on these special days!!! Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy
