Saturday was quilting day and most of us were working on the Buggy Barn quilts we worked on last month. I finished embellishing my blocks last month with stitches, so all I had to do was square them up, which was what I finished in no time at all, but I was not prepared for any other quilting, so I was lazy and didn’t do anything after that. I need a huge floor space to lay out my quilt to decide the layout of the squares, so I will do that later…whenever the urge hits me. Hmmm…wonder when that will be. I have been quite short on ambition lately………
Christie worked on her Buggy Barn and Renea had another project she was working on. I did not get any photos of KT, and Ronelle, Kate and Patty were unable to make it. We missed them.
Renea’s husband Doug made us Double Decker Chocolate cake. Yummmmm. I won’t tell you how many pieces of cake I had. The platter was full!
Renea and I got lots of nice gifts, (I did not take any pictures at the moment we opened them) but here was my pile of gifts.
Leslie brought Renea and I both some beautiful fresh flowers.
Margaret won the draw last month and chose Orange. I love all the fabrics and the colors went very well with our flowers!
Louie and I went junkin after quilting, and I found this pumpkin pincushion. Just perfect for this time of year.
On the way home, we stopped to see my sister and her baby grandson Eliljah, who I am SO in love with. I needed a baby fix. He wasn’t feeling the best, but we did manage to make some ‘raspberries’ together, (please disregard the old woman in the picture and just focus on that cute baby!) and I got to kiss those soft little cheeks and give him lots of hugs. I love that little man!
Sunday I put out my fall basket of flowers and added my birthday flowers and pincushion with them. That’s it for fall decorating here!
