Holiday Weekend is Over

It was nice having Jared home for 4 days. The weekends sure to go by fast now. Is it a sign of getting older? When we were younger, the days just never went by fast enough with work, school work, friends. Now that we aren't the kids anymore, the time sure does by fast.

John and I hit the stores on Saturday to start some Christmas shopping. The crowds weren't that bad at all. We were talking on how we can't do the one stop shopping store (ToysRUs) anymore now that the kids are teenagers. It was so easy then wasn't it? Now, its gift cards and money!

Hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends.

Enough is Enough!

I've been sick since Wednesday with a think is the flu! Aches/sore throat/fever! It hasn't been fun! I try to get into the sewing room and do a few things, but then I'm back to the couch for another nap! I had a shot on Tuesday for tetanus/whooping cough that my doctor suggested and I'm wondering if this is side effects from that!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving week. Don't forget to leave room for the desserts!

Many Blessings!

Veterans Days

Happy Veterans Day to my husband, John. When we met 22 yrs ago he was just back from a six month tour with the Navy and home on leave for a few weeks then heading off again! We were both seeing other people so we didn't think anything about it. But about two months later he called from overseas and asked if I'd like to go out for dinner when he got back in two months! I said "yes"! We've been married 20 yrs! Who would of thought!

Thank you to all our veterans and military personnel serving for country! We honor you!

Mug Rugs

Here's what else I'm working on. Wilds Things pattern by Thimble Blossoms. I wanted to make a Christmas one for my table. Right now, I'm in the middle of machine quilting it. I haven't done alot of machine quilting and boy do I need practice!

I'm hooked on mug rugs! They are very fun to make! Jodi over at Pleasant Home blogged about them and I've been making them since. Here's two that I've finished so far

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Quilt Show

My friend Peggy and I went to a Quilt show today featuring Amish quilts. They had a miniature exhibit of Amish quilts from the Lowell Quilt Museum, but unfortunately, we couldn't take pictures of the minis. Here's a few pics of some of the quilts.

One day, I hope to be that talented to make such wonderful quilts! I bought a snibbles pattern that I've seen so much about here on blogland.
