    OOO, Elisabrat, (I am so in!!) I hope we're paired together next month. I LOVE Halloween. It is one of my favorite Holidays. I just love the fantasy and spookyness of it. We went to Universal Studios to the Halloscream one year in Orlando, FL. It scared the dickens out of me. It was incredible. And very very scary. Did you hear that Krystyna, A HALLOWEEN pairing, maybe....???

    Oh, and I love your sense of humor. You make me smile, okay, okay, sometimes out and out laugh.

    Halloween, I have a super suprise fun quilt already planned. I hope I get someone who likes halloween not just October or I am in big trouble. Last year I made a halloween dq for myself, stitched the center block by the light of a fire when the power went out. I am now blind. At least that is what I blame my vision trouble on. I had to do something to keep busy. Cute little one with mice peaking out of a pumpkin, its a small one maybe 8" but well its hanging on the wall of fame in my sewing room. I am famous somewhere Mine should be in the mail by Wednesday. Long ride home to Alaska, mail takes a couple extra days or it has for me anyways. Its coming! Promise!

    Ljdugas, I have completely started over. The first one is just not working. Mr. Owl is being retired. (wail) It just won't work. It's all wrong. The colors are wrong, the fabrics are wrong. Even the patterns wrong. I have tried to switch gears and still use the cute little owl. But, he has to go. I am brain storming a different idea. I want it to be perfect. And idea 1, definitely isn't going to make it. I hope to have more progress to post on this by the end of the week. And maybe a new sneak peak.

    I hear ya Judith. I brought mine in to sew up and after putting it all together, have decided that it needs something else, looks to "choppy" to me. I have a couple pretty fall embroideries I think would go real nice with the little blocks I have. So, need to make the embroidery machine work tonight while I do salsa. Praise God my children are getting the ingredients chopped up for me. They picked the garden today since it is going to freeze and skinned the tomatoes, chopped the peppers, shredded the cucumber and waiting for me to get home to finish up the mixing and processing. I still have quilt group tonight along with a meeting they want me to attend at church. Geez, don't they realize I have to be quilting? (LOL) well, off to the wonderful embroidery design file I have to find them.

    Will be mailing my DQ to Brandy tomorrow before I head 'overseas' - well to the mainland to visit the kids for a few days.

    I made 2 'fall themed' quilts - the first one I sold to a friend who 'just had to have it' and paid more than it was probably worth (ssshhh don't let her know) so I had to go back and start again but Brandy's DQ is just as nice.

    Love all the fall quilts coming in, even if spring is just coming alive here - lots of wattle flowers and little baby lambs - oh and more sun than rain - but wish that this gale force wind would go away

    [QUOTE=jillnjo;5506096]QuiltyMom- we are heading up to Michigan-land on Thursday! I want to bike Mackinac Island and wishing for a little fall color, but may be too early. And I intend to eat some FUDGE! I should find out if we are close to some quilt shops along the way!

    That sounds like a blast. We did that 37 years ago, when my first born was 9 months or so old. DH carried him in a backpack type thingy all the way around!! He loved it. The baby that is. LOL
    One of my drivers has a daughter on the island working for the season. She was in a fudge shop but took a spot in one of the hotels. Customers were driving her nuts. LOL


    Make sure you stop in at the Ben Franklin store in Gaylord. They have a HUGE fabric department. Nice stuff! There is a little shop in Grayling, as well. Pick up a copy of Country Stitches, I think that is right. It is a quarterly paper they put out that lists all the fabric shops in Michigan. Once you get up there you will see it in a lot of the shops, and all the fabric shops. If you make it down 72 between Grayling and Traverse City, about a mile or two east of the Casino on the north side of the road is a GREAT shop. I am trying to remember the name of it. Renea's? Yea, I think that's it.
    Lots more, Sisters in Marlette is a not to be missed shop in the thumb area, as is Back Door Quilt shop in Elkton. The Fabric Fair in Bay City. One block north and another east of the planetarium.
    HAVE FUN!!!!!

    SALSA! Do you do the swap? I LOVE salsa. One of my fav's is bruscetta (I know that spelling isn't right). My DSIL makes really good salsa, and he leaves out the stuff I don't like. LOL!!! Don't worjk too hard.

    Off Topic alert

    Sooooooooooooo I have a question for you all.

    How do you go about folding an odd shaped fat quarter?

    See picture below.


















    It seems that Mr. Dude (aka Gizmo) has decided that my bin of
    fat quarters is there for him to have a comfy bed.

    Made 8 pints and two quarts of salsa last night. it was so nice with the extra help that my back handled things well. Did not get to use the embroidery machine last night but did go to quilt group, got a civil war fabric top pieced and went to the church meeting of the ladies group, said my speech about quilt group, made it home by 9:30 and finished canning up the salsa at 11:00 and got to bed. Up slow this am, but working hard. I did save a little salsa for myself and it is so good. Chips aren't on my diet, but don't tell anyone. It is maybe a pint of salsa and unfortunately will be gone by noon. DQ is coming along well though.

    Louise, too cute! And I love the colors!

    QuilterMomma, I hear you about the canning backaches! Salsa sounds extremely yummy! My son made tons of his killer hot sauce yesterday with only one little mishap - a splash in his eye! Owwwwww!

    That stings like the dickens. Even told DH he better put on the gloves before handling the hot peppers so he does not rub his eyes later and feel the burn.

    Dq did not get done last night but have it on top of list so I get out sooner than last month, but my partner is happy with it and I am glad. took a bit to get done for some reason. Well, off to finish the day at work and go home and can more tomatoes, we picked 30 lbs and have about that much left hallelujah.

    Yes, it does sting. But he never listens. Oh well.
    30 lbs is a lot of tomatoes. Lucky you! My yield wasn't that good this year, but I have figs galore. Always a race to get the ones that ripened over night before the squirrels do.
    While I'm having DQ withdrawal, I am also getting closer to finishing the New York Beauty fall wall quilt I started over a year ago. Those curves are a PAIN and a half.

    The colors you see just happen to be what I pulled out
    to play with for my Autumn Harvest dq.
    Below those colors is about every other color (even brown)
    you can imagine.

    Everyday I have to pull him out of the bin, but the minute
    I leave the room he is right back in there.

    Today it sure feels like Autumn with our temp (here at home)
    being 50 degrees, and rainy.

    The last few days have been like autumn here, too. After the storm that created the nearby tornado came through, the temps dropped 20 degrees. Too bad I'm stuck in the house sewing, sewing, sewing.

    Hope you all don't mind if I share this one. I made this little keepsake for the family of my little brother's best friend since they were 10 years old who lost his battle with lymphoma last month. Jim had two labs that were his constant companions - hence the vigil they are keeping in the quilt.

    Of course I will. But, if you get the feeling your hearing squeals of delight, they will be mine!! And, probably my mom as well. I can't get her to play online with us, but, she loves to hear all thats going on and enjoys all the photos and squishys. And, a lot of times is there helping me cut the fabric for all my swaps. I have finished piecing the NEW DQ today. I am very pleased with the progress. Tomorrow, onto step 2 and hopefully a bit of quilting. I am hoping to get this out to on Friday. But, I will let you know.
