I missed October completely!

Wow...I didn't post even once in October. Where did the month go?

I guess I'll try to sum it all up in a few pictures.

First was my birthday on the 14th! I received a couple of wonderful gift packages from my friends Peggy and Robin.

Robin send me a fun woolfelt candle mat kit and two table top organizers. She also sent a couple fun halloween goodies.

Peggy sent me a patriotic wallhanging kit, Star Spangled quilt book, fabric, thread, a spidey mug, candy, and more!! :)

Also, just look at this beautiful embroidered pillow she made for me! I just absolutely love it! You have to click on the picture to see how beautiful it is!

I demo'd the fabric baskets at my local quilt group. So now I have a few baskets made for gifts this Christmas.

Finally, I made this quilt and gave it to my sister for her birthday. I think she was really happy with it!

My sister and her family came for a visit over halloween weekend. It was lots of fun to visit with everyone, carve pumpkins together and take her kids trick-or-treating!


  1. Sounds like you had a busy October...happy belated got lots of fun stuff...

  2. Wow, you might only post once a month but when you do, you've got some major stuff to report. Look at the haul you got for your birthday. Aren't you special! :o) Looks like you had fun with the kids carving pumpkins. Hey, we have to borrow kids when yours are off at college.

  3. I really, really like your sisters quilt. I only have one sister and could be bribed to adopt another......

  4. Oooh! Aahhh! Your sister's quilt is stunning! Glad you had a happy birthday - and you're right, the embroidered pillow is a real treasure!
