Happy Halloween

Hope everyone is having a fun Halloween Day! John and I went to a costume party last night. John was a China man with a bamboo hate. I went as a Clothesline. Put doll clothes that I've made on a piece of material then attached it to my shirt. I even made a small quilt to hang on it! LOL

We had two trick or treaters tonite. Can't believe it! We usually have about 30 kids. What will I do with all that candy?

Well, I'm off to sit and watch some football!

Swaps - No More!

I've done a few swaps over the past year and haven't had much luck in receiving anything from my swap partner! Why do people sign up if they aren't going to swap? I'm all confused with this? I'm in another swap right now and was suppose to receive something by today and its happened again - nothing!

It's very discouraging when some of us put our heart and soul and sewing machine needles going and we get nothing in return. Do people only sign up so they receive something but not return the favor.

My daughter keeps telling me to forget swaps! I'm starting to think she's right!

Swaps - no more!

Wild Things

Here's what I'm working on. Wild Things by Thimble Blossoms. Love the pattern. So far I've done 6 blocks with many more to go! I've also made a few Halloween goodie bags for decoration.

We are going to a Halloween party this weekend. As Halloween is my least favorite holiday, I've decided that I would dress up! I can't decide between a recycling lady or a cereal killer! I'll take pics this weekend so u can seem them.

Have a good day!

Patriots Place

Yesterday, John and I spent the day together. Its strange not having the kids with us, but we are starting to learn how to do things without them. So off we went to Patriots Place..home of the New England Patriots! It was a great fall day to walk around, have lunch, do some shopping. Here's a pic of John with the three Super Bowl trophies.

After we went to Wrentham Village and I ran into to the Vera Bradley outlet! Which one to buy? Too many to choose from. Plus, the store was packed! Are we sure we are still in a recession because people were certainly shopping yesterday. It took us about 20 min to find a parking place. Yes, I did buy a goodie!

Today, is relaxing and watching the Patriots with some friends. Hope everyone is having a great day!

Riverdance On Ice

Last night, John and I went to Riverdance on Ice. I really didn't know what to expect. But, it was two things going on at the same time. The ice skaters would be on the ice and the Riverdance dancers would be on a stage at the end of the ice. It was hard to focus on both of them from where are seats were. So I saw some ice dancing and some riverdancing!

It was being filmed by NBC as its going to be on TV on Feb 19th! I can't wait to see if there is a difference from what we saw. I wonder if they will show the 15 min power outage we had, or the first skater who fell on her jump, or the lack of people being in the seats. The creativity of editing!

Hope everyone is having a great day!

I'm looking for a website where they list swaps? I had it listed on the old computer and now I can't remember. Anyone know of some websites? I like doing swaps and haven't done one in awhile.

I'm back from vacation! Carol and I had a great time despite the weather of rain and very cloudy! But like my friend said..a day at Disney in the rain is a better than a day at home! LOL

It was Carol's first trip to Florida and she loved it! She wasn't a fan of the Soarin' ride at Epcot, but loved everything else.

Now its time to get back to reality!
