And raining... It has been so dry here. We are welcoming the much needed rain. It just makes me want to take a nap when it is gloomy and rainy like this..ZZZZzzzzzzz!!!
I cut out 2 dresden plate quilt blocks. Maybe I will get to  sew them later today.  Will try to post a pic when they are completed.
I am so ready for the cooler weather so I can have more time to for quilting. Bonnie Hunter at will be starting a mystery quilt in Nov. if you are intrested, hop on over to her site and keep watch.  She does some really pretty scrap quilts. I am sure this one will be just as beautiful.
Until next posting.......~~~HAPPY QUILTING~~~

temp cooling down here...........

It's a nice 63degree evening here tonight.. I love it.  Been so busy working at my mom's. We have tore out her kitchen and are putting up paneling and click flooring.  Then she wants cabinets. This is taking awhile but it is looking much better. She has been staying with me until we get her kitchen back together. It's going slow but sure..
No quilting gettting accomplished here for now. I am looking forward to getting back to it though as soon as I can.......
Hope you are having a wonderful fall///

Dropping in.......

My how time does fly.. Its been a few days since I have blogged. I have been helping my mom move back from Michigan. We have been cleaning, cleaning and cleaning.. Now we are lifting, lifting and lifting box after box trying to get things where it might belong until we decide it would be better somewhere else. You ladies know what I mean don't ya?  We gals are always moving things. My hubby use to say he knew to turn the lights on when he came home from 2nd shift because more than likely I had moved the furniture while he was at work and he wouldn't know where the sofa may be.. ( I told him it just kept him on his toes!)
Nothing quilty going on here too much moving..  Although we had quilt guild on the 4th and had a wonderful lady come with her quilt bus and had demonstrations, and of course fabrics to purchase. We had a wonderful day and lots of fun and great food. Our quilters in our guild sure can cook.
Until next time have a great day.....
