Fall Is In The Air!

Finished up another UFO yesterday! This was a kit I received last fall in an online swap. The pattern is Little Bits: Fallen Leaves by Cindi Edgerton. It is a paper-pieced pattern, which I love to do!! It is now complete, sandwiched with batting and backing, and I hope to have it quilted this week. Just trying to decide if I should hand quilt or machine quilt. It is small enough (22" x 22") that hand quilting would be very doable for me.

I finished my 2007 Thimbleberries House and Garden Big Club quilt!!!!! Why I waited so long to finish, I don't know. I've had the inner quilt completed, and the borders pieced and cut, just waiting to be put on. For some reason, I thought the borders were not going to go on very easy...but I was VERY wrong! They went on slick! It is a big quilt, so the photo is not so good!! Didn't have anyone to hold the top up for me, so I had to lay it on the floor, and it was too big for the camera's viewfinder!!! Now to get it quilted. And since I've finished the 2007 quilt, I can now start on the 2008 Thimbleberries Big Club quilt!! I think I'm doing pretty good here, as 2008 is not over yet!! LOL!!! One can hope!

A Gift from God

Happy 23rd Birthday, Jacob!

I prayed for this child,
and the LORD has
granted me

what I asked
of him.

So now I give him
to the LORD.
For his whole life
he will be given over
to the LORD.

1 Samuel 1:27-28

Whew! What A Busy Few Weeks!

It sure has been a busy few weeks! It started off
with a trip to Tennessee and the marriage of our daughter! She was a beautiful bride. We brought our granddaughter home with us for a week, to play with Grandma and Grandpa!! On our trip home from Tennessee, we received word that my sweet mother-in-law had passed away, and so, after a 12 hour drive from Tennessee, we unpacked the suitcase and repacked, so that my husband could fly to Seattle to be with his family. Did I mention that it's a 3 hour drive to the airport!! Only 3 hours of sleep was had that night! So hubby went to Seattle, and granddaughter and I stayed home and played. Ally went home yesterday, and Grandma is recouping!! LOL!!! Oh, to have the energy these little ones possess!!
