SEPTEMBER CHALLENGE

I went to a one room school house until end of 5th grade--
and every September my Aunt Grace would come and stay with us for 2 weeks and pick grapes right across the street from the school--
they were the dark purple kinds and they cut them by hand and filled boxes of them--
My Aunt was the fastest cutter!!!
So in honor of her and back to school memories for me--
this months Challenge is--
sewing something using the color of purple--
The project does not have to be all done in purple--
but just use purple in the project somehow!!
Happy Stitching!!
hugs, di and miss gracie

sewed the borders on this morning--
the darker side has dots of yellow and red in it--
wished it had showed up better here--
and this is what you do when you can't decide between 2 different fabrics--
put them both on!!!!

I really would of liked to have gotten it all quilted too--
but have to wait until pay day tomorrow to get the batting for it!!!
So guess this will carry over to an August finish
