What I've been doing instead of sewing and a quilt show preview
This was taken at the going away party his parents had for him last weekend.
This weekend we dug post holes for the lean-to in back of the new garage. The apparatus behind me is a power auger. It works great until it hits one of the many rocks inhabiting the lower levels of the ground around our house. The rocks to the left (below) are the ones Al has already dug out of some of the holes.
Stitches in Time 2012"
There are over 200 pieces entered this year. I'm excited, as always now that show time has arrived! Even though I have seen many of the pieces at show and tell, I am still amazed and awestruck at the talent on display at these shows!
These are a few of the pieces I am selling at the Guild Boutique- where members sell handmade items. I always buy more than I sell!
Sorry as always about the spacing. I can never get things to go where I want therm.
It's fall- and the leaves are suddenly dropping from the trees. This year, mow them and leave them to nourish your lawn rather than raking them to the curb and sending them to the landfill! Sorry if this one's a rerun, but if I get just one more person to do it every year, I'm happy to repeat myself!
I am grateful for:
Having time to enjoy being mauled by kittens.
A warm day to get outside and pick up the toys from the garden.
Good football games- even when I didn't care who won!
A good joke to share.
My machine and I are getting along very well today.
