    I love pumpkins and leaves!!! I miss the crisp fall weather that we use to enjoy in Michigan, the colors were so vivid and varied. Oh childhood! Have things changed that much or is it my old eyes? Hate hearing about bad days and illnesses - I will be praying for you all. Praying you have better days and of course happy times! I have canned 23 jars of tomatoes and now am working on stewed tomatoes - 6 jars in the canner. More to do, but decided to take a break and check up on you all.

    My goodness you are all so-o-o-o busy.

    I remember the days of work, then off to run errands, home to cook and clean.

    I am liking this retirement much better.

    Here is a pic of what I have been doing. Top is done, Orion's Star from Eleanor Burns.

    ooooh what a pretty quilt! bet you did that as a quilt in a day right ? LOL... I see lots and lots of cutting and sewing and not a day quilt at all

    Belfrey curious is it all pumpkins or only jack o lanterns that you do not do? would you prefer ONLY leaves? if somake sure your partner is given that information ok? wouldn't want anyone to receive something they are not fond of .. I know she would not like to work with Halloween at all so if you are wanting only Halloween make sure you let me know before I hand out partners! soon very soon.. its coming! Today is my baby girls birthday! she is.. 22. yikes where do all those years go? They grow so very fast enjoy them while you have them. I am now waiting for grand children to be part of my life. Yos my dear girl you dance MARVELOUSLY. and we don't get our todays back so your right tell someone you love you love them right now. Excellent advice. I send my HUGS to you and a big wet smooch grandma like kiss on your cheek.. (should I go put icky cologne on first?).. JUST FOR YOU> talk about scoring girl

    I'll second that, what a gorgeous quilt, love blue and yellow anyway and your quilt is super!! Brat, I didn't get to go shopping yesterday like I thought, but boy did I today!! I am so excited, I went looking for falls and loved so many that I bought yards and half yards of 13 different fabrics! So watch out, now I just have to decide which ones to send. I will have plenty for the fat quarter swap, if I can part with any more, plus should have a great selection to chose from for a table runner. Have a hair cut tomorrow morning but after that watch out cutting mat. I will let you know when I get them in the mail, I know it takes almost a week for anything to get from here to Oregon, so I would think it maybe the same for you. YUMM, the store sure was full of eye candy!

    Thank you for the compliments on my quilt. I loved the pattern, but not the size of the blocks. At 16 and 1/2 inches, they were monsterous to square up .
    You are right- not a Quilt in a Day

    Love all the paper piecing shown. I have not "wrapped" my head around t yet. One day.....

    Yos- with all that dancing, you may cause an earthquake in TX. That flamenco is pretty furious

    The fabric pictures are a real tease. I am still thinking and thinking and thinking.... Oops gave myself a headache.

    sapdoggie, that's a really pretty quilt! Love the way it turned out.
    Got my fabric in the mail yesterday for this swap, now just have to figure out a unique pattern for it! Sorry Belfry, it's pumpkins, but they're not jack-o-laterns, would that do if I get your name? I promise to make it real special!!

    if she doesn't care for pumpkins you can always make them for ME I love them. more than fall leaves ok maybe almost the same but the bright color makes me feel like a kid again. We used to go to pick them in Half Moon Bay as a kid and then spend all afternoon coming up with the perfect design. ended up with like crooked triangles but you knew you were going to have the prettiest one yet. I am sure mine was! I still buy them now .. don't usually cut them any more but love to have them sitting by the front door.. My mom used to make a big pot of chicken soup, carve out a pumpkin fill it with soup, bake it for a bit in the oven then serve it on the table in the pumpkin. boy was it pretty and she would scoop a bit of the pumpkin out into the soup also and top it with the seeds.. I did the same thing for my kids. Some traditions are not so bad.

    Wow! Everyone is showing some beautiful blocks and quilts!! I am still in the stage of looking for the fabric! Waiting for something to jump out at me, plus I thought I better wait and see what me partner wants!
    Sorry I have not been around much, was in the hospital for a couple days with kidney stones! Those things are horrible!! but I am back and getting a bit faster now!
    I am willing to do either a Halloween or a Fall runner and I am good with either one in return since I still have two girls who love to go out! Plus they love to help me decorate the house!!

    Good morning all. An electrical storm woke me at 3, had to get up and close windows and never did get back into a deep sleep. Elliott, my biggest fur ball golden is terrified of thunder and lightning so we snuggled on the couch but his panting kept me on the edge of sleeping. We needed the rain, just not such a downpour to wash gullies in the horse paddock. It's suppose to rain off and on all day so I see sewing in my plans, after I make a couple of pies. A dear friend came over yesterday and we picked a huge bunch of wild blackberries so hubby and a neighbor have requested pies, hubby wants to use so of our abundant rhubarb so I will make rhubarb blackberry pies - that will be after I cut my fat quarters to send out!
