Those are great!!! We went to Galveston Island today. We saw the sculptured trees, ate at a fabulous cafe I never knew was there and still wouldn't if we didn't go see the trees. Drove out to East Beach and watched the big cargo ships. Lil man LOVED it!!! Then we went to Stewart Beach and played in the sand. Lil man and big kid (hubby) played in the water. LOVE 80's and 90's temps in October!!!

once more lovely blocks! Yosemitesa it sounds like a wonderful day. We have a warming up week too going to hit 80 mid week then hopefully fall will come. I am good to 80 after that its air conditioner time.
My advice which you dont have to take skip the head shop unless your comfortable with going in one. I am such a geek I would worry what if one of my friends saw me go in there I would find that wall hanging on ebay first just me.. dork I know sorry Kelly but some of us are a bit older and well .. nope.
I would do a wild batik one bright colors like dyed fabric or get a tshirt if your machine can work with t material and use that as the center part the rest well bold colors. I went once to a horrible concert of theirs, hated it but the X loved them. I was well .. not thrilled. Worse yet my first was born NY's day and they were on tv and while i was in labor the man watched 2 hours of it.. so they are not winning prizes with me lol
last Jaba the first week of November is the hopeful date to get ornies for the seniors together. This gives me time to count, sort etc so we can get them evenly distributed on the tree and room decorations. I NEED MORE ORNAMENTS (anyone hear that one?) for the tree so if you would like to whip up a couple let me know. thanks everyone who has said they could help.
Thank you Abby's Mom. Recieved this wonderful block. You did a great job!!
love the sashing on your beautiful quilt joanelizbay
Hello ladies, I am just stopping by to say Hi, I am loving this! I am being Grammie with my energetic 3year old, Charleigh, she is running me ragged! I got here Friday morning and I am realizing how much I am not the energizer Bunnie!
But I truly love her dragging me around(Today I am the monster Dragon and she is the princess!)
OK time to go will try to check in again! Melinda (Nexxus) I can't wait to meet you! I will call sometime tomorrow, I think today is going to be jam packed full! Birthday part at Noon at the corn maze! Come on by with you kiddo's if you want!
Finished blocks heading home tomorrow to: AnnaQuilts, Roseysue & Nancia.
I have not received blocks from:
areinn (nor received the F8)
If my records are wrong please let me know!
Super far off-topic: I am working through a gigantic box of pictures that we inherited when my great-grandmother died almost 14 years ago - and I found a picture of my great-great-grandmother. I know that seems like, "Well duh" but it's the ONLY picture I have of her - to give you an idea, my own mother didn't know the woman's name. I've been working on our family tree and it took me a solid 8 months of research to find out her name.
So I am going to share this awesome picture with you because I'm just so excited.
I am excited for you! Family trees are one of the best puzzle mysteries ever aren't they? And it feels so good to solve a piece of it. Good for you. I am stuck at the turn of the century on both sides of the family...no hurry to get back to that is there?!?
