Punkin' Patch....

Took the handsome man to the Pumpkin Patch today...

Wasn't too sure... Especially in the petting zoo. I couldn't get the camera out to take a picture. He was all over me.
But, we had fun!

Give Thanks...

Found this on Facebook I's a Deb Grogan pattern.
I downloaded it from somewhere... Don't remember where..I just noticed my shadow in the middle of the pumpkin. Looks like a big spot but it's not.

Finish it up Friday..

A day late that is..
I finished quilting yesterday and put binding on today. The kit was gifted to me by my sister a LONG time ago. I was always afraid to start it because it looked liked it was WAY over my sewing level. It was a challenge, looks a lot better quilted that's for sure.
And there she is..."Pacific Rim Quilt", 61x61.  Already washed and dried and all crinklie... I LOVE that last part!
Label and all!

Busy weekend....

Started off with the Palm Springs Quilt show, which was amazing... Kinda disappointed with the vendors, not quite as many as last year. I still came home with a couple things.  I think they all chose to go to the Pomona Show. Oh well... Quilts were just AMAZING! Then went to Fallbrook to sew with my good friend Marian. Together we figured out how to take a bag of M & M's and make a zippered pouch out of it.
They turned out so stinking cute! I don't want to give them away.
Finished up my Norma Whaley quilt.
I started hand stitching everything down and my hands just couldn't handle it. I have severe carpel tunnel in my right hand and it took me close to 3 weeks to get not even 1/2 way done.. So, I machine appliquéd the whole thing down in just a couple hours.. Phew! What a relief. Should have thought of that 3 weeks ago. Now to add it to the pile of "need backing" stack. 
Onto the next project now.

What a gorgeous morning to sit hear and catch up on my emails, blogs, face book, Instagram..
I sit here with my latte in my hand wishing it will stay this way all day. I did all my shopping and running around yesterday so I can do absolutely nothing all day today.

Just picked this up from Kerry's house today. I had to send it out to be quilted because it was SOOO large, there is no way it would even fit on my little ol' machine. It's about 94x100. It is going on the guest bed as a blanket. I even used wool batting. 
The pattern is called sweet 16 and is by Sandi Hairgrave. It's just a wonderful way to use up a lot of scraps.
Binding is cut, pressed and ready to go on. I have to do a wee bit more appliqué on a quilt that is covering my table first then I can sew er' on.
The true colors match up with the bottom picture.. I think I'm going to really like this when its done.
