Mid October - Hard to believe!
Yesterday, we had family pictures made and Fred and I did a touch of Christmas shopping! Can you believe Christmas is only about 9 weeks away! Life is just flying past and I so wish I could slow it down a little.
The month started out great, with the annual Quilters of SC retreat. I am probably the last person to blog about the retreat, and I don't have any pictures to show, but I can show you something I finished there.
Yeaaaaaaaaaaa...its my Be Attitudes quilt. Well, its almost finished - the top is done anyway.
It is a beautiful day today, so I took some pictues outside, and we have lots of trees in our yard, so please just look beyond the shadows.
I have finished all the coloring and embroidery on my Acorn and Oak leaf Wreath - at least one of them. I am making three which will eventually become a table runner. I will be doing a demonstration on this technique at guild meeting tomorrow night and needed some in various stages for demonstration purposes.
Another project finished is the September Gifts of Grace block - Gentleness (see sidebar for link). Just love the roses on thiss block!
Overseeing the photo shoot is Izzy - my daughter Ellen's little pooch.
We took the kids to see Toy Story Disney on Ice. We rode the Monorail, saw the show and finished the outing at McDonalds with chicken nuggets and icecream. It was a fun day!
From Left to right are Ellen, Tess (5), Malachi (almost 4), Timothy (4) and the Leader-of-the-Pack, Levi (7)
Hope you are all enjoying some beautiful Fall weather.
For me - I am running off to join the circus!!! More on that later......
