How about a Night Owl Contest? This one is of course open to EVERYONE, not just us sleep-deprived zombies that walk around among the living during the day. Welcome all!

You know I love contests - hosting them is such fun! Here is my latest one:


I need some new names for the night owl posts and I want your help. Pick a movie, play or tv show and insert the words, "night owl" into it somewhere. Here are some examples so you can see how easy it is: The Sound of Night Owls, Downton Night Owls and The Night Owls of the Opera. Told you it was easy.


Next, choose a number between 1 and 100. Whoever gets closest to the number I've chosen gets the book, "Debbie Mumm's Country Quilts for All Occasions." This nice hardcover edition is in perfect condition. I got it at my guild's book giveaway last week and want to pass along some of the blessing I received. It is a beautiful book I think anyone would like.


I'll let you know who the winner is in the middle of the night Sunday night/Monday morning, unless a miracle happens and I sleep through. Then I'll let you know Monday morning.


Come on, everyone! Want to play my game?

The Night StalkersYou have to add owls to it, too! So how about The Night Owl Stalkers? I like it! I'm so glad you want to play. I hope this will be fun.

Would you like to choose a number and win the book?

Here's another one I like: Anne of Green Night Owls.

We don't usually get much rain at all ... 8" average yearly rainfall. Been raining all week. We are getting the same storms as Colorado. The Rio Grande Valley has been on flood alert for a few days.

Little House of the Night Owls.... my number is 48... ('cause I'm 48 years young :) )

I started on my quilt for my parents yesterday, spent most of the night last night and a good portion of today cutting out and stitching blocks together... I swear, I must have spent 3 hours just squaring up all of my blocks! What a time-consuming task that is, but I know it will be worth it in the end. ANYWAY... I decided to use the Foilage layer cake I purchased from M* in June and some yardage I had in my stash. I need all 42 layer cakes for this quilt and as I opened it up and started counting, I had, seriously, 41.... 41! Can you believe it? I was short just one layer cake in this package. So what do I do? I went ahead and called M* customer service and explained my predicament, the very nice lady let me go online and pick from the yardage that was available for this line and will be sending me approx 1/3 yard of fabric, enough to complete the layer cake with a little left over. I thought that was very sweet of her, and she was just so NICE about it. :)

I feel so bad for all the people affected by the awful storms and flooding right now in Missouri, Colorado and the surrounding areas, my prayers are with you all.
The camp-a-lot charm pack on the DD tonight is awfully cute... It would make a darling little boys quilt :) Have a great night my fellow night owls... I will go to bed in the morning when I get off work and hopefully dream of all things quilty... :)

I am thinking about and praying for the people in Colorado with all of that mess out there; have some friends and a cousin living in those areas. Hope they all stay safe!

Lets see; did anyone have Revenge of the Night Owls? Chronicles of Night Owls! Lord of the Night Owls! Meet the Night Owls!
My number 70.

Sewed random things today; Finally got all of my piano keys for a border; the rest of the top has been done for a year. Ouch! Also quilting some Christmas table runners and Halloween Treat bags for the grandkids.

I did not play today as I wanted. I did not finish anything. I started cleaning and just didn't stop. My son got a new mattress the other day and today we put on his new temperpedic(?) topper he wanted because we have on our bed, put risers under his bed and the new sheets were washed/dried and put on. Now his bed is very high. Our bed is a sleigh bed and we have stools to get in and he wanted his bed big like ours. It sure is so I am thinking I will pick up a stool at the Mill Store and paint a train on it for him. He was so excited by a mattress.

When I finished all the cleaning I was tired and read and napped for an hour on the couch.

I am heading to the bed now and hopefully I will sleep. I love all you ladies but I want a normal schedule for a change.

I love all the title you are coming up with. I had one idea and that is all.

Hey, wait for me... I just woke up. (rubbing sleep from eyes and trying to think of a "Night Owl" theme)
The Adventures of the Night Owls... and I like 13 for a number

I have to refrain from spending again for the DD. Have had 3 orders to M* this month and need to finish up the planned projects before starting off on another acquisition marathon. Awaiting my order to get Grandson's quilt going... Awaiting Ghastlie Fabric to finish my Halloween quilt... Awaiting a trip to Jo-Anns to get the frame for a wire wreath..--- sew it goes. I just love it when "Awaiting becomes Arrival".

Have no idea what is playing at the movies so I looked up this week's top money movies and chose Gangster Squad Night Owls, kind of lame but it's all I can come up with half asleep.
My number is be 67.

Finished cutting squares and strips for next quilt. Also cut some Christmas stockings for the Patriotic Christmas Stocking group. Only 3 so far as I didn't have much patriotic fabric on hand, hope to find some in Lancaster next weekend.

Feel like having a nice cup of hot tea and a donut would go so nice with it but someone forgot to get them for tonight's meeting.
