Two years later…..

Finally after 2 years I have the backing sewn on my Maggie quilt! Oh my gosh, I didn’t think I would ever get it done! There are so many other projects I have wanted to start on but I have been true to my word that I would not begin ANYTHING new until I got this quilt finished! There is one minor little detail yet, I have got to figure out how I am going to hang it. Anyone have a favorite way of doing that? Hope it doesn’t take me another 2 years to get that done!!

Where Art Thou?

For days now I have been looking all around for my reading glasses. I even had my husband searching for them. We never did find them and I just figured I’d never see them again. Today, I’m sitting on the couch and I happen to look over at the pumpkin on the fireplace and I see my glasses in the wooden bowl on top of the acorns. Now, tell me, what is up with that?! I certainly have no memory as to why they would be there of all places!  I surely didn’t think that they looked fallish alongside the acorns? But then again, we’re talking about me here. Maybe I have come up with a new decorating fad, you think?! Please feel free to steal my idea!!  lol

What’s that? You want to see a close up of the candy?  Well it’s all gone, duh!!!

Thank you so much Wendy!  It was a lot of fun to be able to submit a name, and even more exciting when you picked the name!!

Kitty Blessings!

Pumpkins and Ghosts

Doug and his girlfriend Megan carved pumpkins tonight and Doug brought me the one he carved. Needless to say I was thrilled! You have to remember I’m just a little girl at heart and  things like this just have me beaming!!

Halloween Decor Done!

Ok, I put out a few Halloween things. I made the wool pillow. I found the cute little pumpkin man at a garage sale a long time ago. I just love him!

 I stitched the stocking hanging on the door a few years back.

Here’s my new furry kitty I got last weekend at a craft show. I thought he had the sweetest little personality! Notice his little belly button!

I made the ceramic pumpkins on the fireplace when I was pregnant with Derek.  I was taking a ceramic class and working on those pumpkins and had to leave as I got sick. For the longest time, I couldn’t look at this  piece without feeling sick to my stomach, because I could just look at them and recall how I felt! lol

Enjoying October

I found this little piece of coverlet at Sweet Annie’s the other day. Makes for a nice little runner.

My adorable nieces, Grace and her little sister Lily out for a bike ride! Not bragging or anything but if you look in the dictionary under “cute little punkins” you’ll find their picture there! ;-)

I don’t know about anybody else (other than Grace and Lily) but I am sure enjoying the nice fall weather! I can’t believe we are in October already!  Time just keeps flying by!

I made this little guy last year….. I’m going to have to go dig him out!

Have a great day!
