    First thing I did was get up and move all of my crafts I've been painting on. I had to move all my stuff because my hubby just got back from Idaho. Had to pick him up yesterday evening. One of the guys got a bull elk. So he will be cutting up elk meat. I know the kids in TN are thrilled. They always get some.

    Now since that chore is done, I've been gathering my things up to put in the shop down town. Have all the good ole errands to do. Bank, pharmacy, grocery store.

    Then when I come back and get everything put away. I'm headed to my craft house to work a bit. And when it gets later, I'll come back down and work on stuff at the house.

    Oh, yes! I forgot. I also have to make some biscuits and fry elk tenerloin. Thought I was going to have hubby home at night. But they changed the shift for him. They are starting a double shift to get the bridge going faster. So put him on night shift. That's means I have to be quiet during the day.

    Oh, change of plans already. I don't have to go out until tomorrow. Yea!!!!!!

    I get to start on crafts right away.

    I'll check back to see what all you are going to do or have done today. I'll let you know what I've gotten done. Lots I hope!!!!!

    Me and my husband had unexpected out-of-town relatives to "drop by" from 3 states away. They were so tired... no way could we not offer for them to spend the night....so I'm trying to figure out what to cook for breakfast. Then work.... then.... hopefully.... begin sewing on a log-cabin quilt that is all cut out and just waiting for me.

    May everyone have a blessed day!

    I have to work this morning, hope to get sewing time later- finishing up a quilt top so I can either start something new or go to my piles of UFO's - that pile is too big!
    Plus house stuff- may or may not get done :)

    Going to work at sprucing up my kitchen cabinets and then probably watch the Nascar race that got rained out yesterday. Maybe I'll lug the machine to the Living room and sew while I watch the race.

    DH and I are 'resting' after a long trip out of state on Sat. to visit grandson for his 11th B-day and an even longer trip home on Sunday. Glad I washed and ironed fabrics for black and white log cabin quilt before I left so after my 'rest' this morning I'll begin cutting strips. Later I'll run over to the farm market for some veggies and chuck chop meat for tonight's meat loaf dinner tonight, will make enough so we can have it again tomorrow night.

    I had some housework to do this morning, am finishing my second cup of coffee as I catch up here, then into the sewing room to finish the borders on my first OBW. Must remember to take a photo of the origional fabric. I have to work tonight so will try to grab a short nap this afternoon.

    Weather is overcast and looks like rain. Fall is definitely in the air. I shudder when I look out and think of all the autumn yard work I have to do--so for today, I'll just keep my curtains closed!

    I think I'm going to be resting my hand for the most part. I worked all the thread ends in on a quilt yesterday and my index finger is killing me. It hurts clear down to my fingernail.

    It's been very sore since I took a reverse fusible applique class in August. I hope it quits hurting eventually.

    So I think mostly I'll read the board and I need to go pay the electric bill this afternoon. I can't go do that until after I get hubby up. He got home at 8:15 this morning and has to get back up and go work for 4 hours this afternoon.

    I am going to work on a baby quilt I am making with pinwheels. Tried to yesterday and I had to rip more on the first 8 blocks than I have had to do with my last queen quilt. Then I sewed blocks upside down. After a few hours of that I gave up and read a book. Maybe today will go better.

    Today is a teachers workday at school so I have the boys home with me today. We are going to meet hubby for lunch (nice change for everyone) and then this afternoon I will let them play with Granny so I can get some sewing done. Tomorrow will be all mine after boys get off to school. I can have a quite cup of coffee and start sewing. Yea!!!

    I'm waiting for the contractor to come by and get payment for the new floors his crew installed for me this last week. Good job guys! Then I'm going shopping and lunch with a friend. I may go to a movie or go to Barnes and Nobles and browse the new quilt magazines. I'll come home and either sew on my applique quilt while watching tv or read. I have no idea what DH's plans are. He is in and out all day.

    I'm not sure I will do much of anything today. Was out of town for 4 days. Had a nice trip but it is cloudy and dreary today. Got my ggd ready for school, put her on the bus, have been on this site for a couple of hrs catching up and have some baby quilts to finish. Might do that today.lol.

    I'm hoping to do outside work, it's so nice and cool for a change. I have a new big cage for my little conures and am cutting saplings for perches. Then weed-whacking time and gathering some garden gleanings. That should do me in.

    Heading to the coast for some good seafood with friends, then up to see my Dad for a game of cribbage. Maybe I will get to sew on a quilt tonight for my new grandson, born Sept 10th, almost 6 weeks early but doing well. Still in the Neo-natal unit in Zurich, Switzerland.
