Applique Play or is it Appliplay?

I get a bit done here and there.  Some days are better than others.  Saturday was a busy day.  The Ancient Ones got up late, so I felt like I was rushing and pushing all morning.  After getting them settled in for the morning I had to run to the grocery store, then arrived home in time to grab a bite to eat, feed the AO, pick up the boys and run to a birthday party for the youngest grandson Easton.  He turned one on the 12th.

We stayed for a bit, then had to run back home, stopping at the drugstore on the way because DH lost a screw out of his eyeglasses and he can barely see without them.  Once we got those fixed, he and the big boys went to a boy scout event called a lock in and I had the opportunity to sit and relax.

I have been prepping a lot of applique trying to get caught up with the In Our Garden BOM which ended this month.  So far I have these ready to sew.

 September's block was by Life in the Scrapatch

Then there was a bonus block from Life in the Scrapatch also!
