Movie ......

I am knitting dishrags and watching a great hallmark movie called "Finding a family". If you get a chance check it out.
 Haven't been posting much just been busy with everyday life.
I will try to get some pics up soon.
Hope you are having a wonderful autumn. :)

Wooo hooooo......

Quilt club tomorrow. Can you tell I love quilting? :)  Then I have knitting one night this week, and quilting another.. WoW... Quilting 2 nights this week.. Can't get much better than this. Well unless it would be quilting everynight. Sounds good to me.. But as you know everyday life gets in the way and I have to lay my quilting/knitting aside and do other things...Well I was in that perfect world for a few minutes...and wow was it wonderful.   :)
I have been making flying geese and trying to get a quilt called "wing and a prayer" somewhere near completion. Although it is nowhere near there. There is like a zillion flying geese in this quilt. If you google it, it will be the one in the brown color family with pinecones and berries. So pretty but lots of pieces. I will be one happy camper when this baby is finished.. Not sure which year in 20??.   But hey as of right now I am determined.....isn't that all that matters? After all it has been shoved to the back shelf for several months. Ever heard of out of sight out of mind? Well that was that quilt until my quilting friends said lets get that darn quilt out and lets finishem.. Ok great idea so we are working on them. One friend has hers finished. Three of us left to struggle through. I think we can, I think we can....

Leaves are turning here and autumn is sneaking in. The temps are cooling which is very OK with me.
Love the beautiful blue sky and the crisp air.
I hope you have a great week and lots of chances to quilt or knit..I'll be back soon and hopefully have some photos. Because if you are like me thats my favorite part of a blog....quilt pics.
