    Default It's Sunday, Nov 1st, a brand new day and a brand new month.

    It's all that wrapped into one and we get an extra hours sleep. Did I really get an extra hour? Not up any earlier than usual. This day will be so long.

    We had about 20 little trick or treaters here last night. By 8 pm the fuss was over.

    On Friday, I bought laminate fabric, fabric to recover kitchen chairs, and fabric for 2 different tops I want to make. OYE!! I DID NOT buy quilting fabric, believe it or not.

    Today I want to finish up the rice bags that I have left to make. I also need to make the covers for them. I want to get this out of the way ASAP. Then I can quilt the dirt bike quilt and get that out of the way. AND THEN, no more doing stuff for other people for a while. I would just like to get my own stuff done.

    This next coming weekend I am going to Nancy's (Grandma Nan)for the weekend for a girl's sewing weekend. I am really looking forward to that. RiverMomm is coming too so I get to meet another forum friend.

    I tried to call Blondie yesterday but I still can not reach her. She must be oh so busy. I will try again later.

    Have a wonderful day everyone and don't eat ALL the candy from last night. Spread it out over time (yeah right).
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

    Hi! Oh! Monique, Nan and Vicky, wish I was in NY to get together with you three! Have a blast together!

    Must do a big PIA curtain for my stage show. I measured and measured and had cut 4 of the five panels for it when the director called requesting it to have a deeper casing for a double thick hanging rod. GRRRRR! I had just cut it to fit what he first told me to do. I cut it to just fit so I wouldn't have to do any special hemming. This request has made the job a bit more difficult.

    So, we all ( tech and set build crew from the theatre group) went out to dinner together last night. I usually don't get to socialize that much with this group, but they are all so nice and so much fun. Had two beers with my dinner, and that usually means " lights out" for me! So I stayed awake long enough to see 2 sets of trick or treaters and then it truly was " lights out"! So with the extra hour of sleep, I am well rested now!

    My fellow costumer is step grandma to a darling 3 year old who lives part time at her house. The parents are moving to Cinncinnati. My friend is driving up there with the little one and her boxes of stuff tomorrow. They came by my house last night for trick or treating. The little girl loves coming to my house, and her little eyes lit up when she saw me! I don't think she realizes that she won't be seeing Grandma Tracey so much any more. And it was sad to give her one last kiss and hug last night. So my friend and I will have to soothe our lonely hearts with fabric!

    Hope you all have a great day!

    I do hope you all will share pictures of getting together.. we want to see those big smiles!!

    I'm just trying to finish up a bunch of projects I have started for this coming Christmas.. I hope all the little stuff is done and I can put in more time doing the quilting on a couple of large quilts. They are sandwiched with one under the needle right now. Not much else to do with the weather turning cold and it raining all day.

    Not many were out and about due to the weather... We live close to a school and generally have LOTS of little goblins and ghosts.
    I did get to bed early, so I am up early getting the clocks turned back.

    Hugs going out to all.

    Morning Everyone! We had no trick-or-treaters last night because we live in a remote area with no children. The weather wasn't the best either. I made a large pot of soup and we pigged out with that and cornbread.

    I talked to Blondie a couple days ago and she and the family are fine. She is still having computer/internet issues but will try to be back with us soon. She sends to her love and wants everyone to know she is praying for us.

    Monique, I hope you and the Girls have a great time when you get together.

    I've been hemming the binding on our Christmas quilt. I'm waiting to get an armload of things back from Reggie that will all need binding. Looking forward to trying the 2-color binding Jenny showed us a few weeks ago.

    Have a blessed day Everyone.

    Good morning everyone! It's a beautiful sunny (but rather cold) day here in Germany and it's already 1:30 pm. I'm in the process of packing up for a work trip to another school. I'll drive there in the late afternoon (I don't like driving in the dark) and will be home again Thursday afternoon. I'm also packing my smaller Brother sewing machine. Four nights all by myself in the hotel are hopefully going to give me some sewing time. If I can stay awake long enough, that is

    Monique, have a blast! Getting together with friends to sew must be so much fun!

    Wishing everybody a wonderful Sunday!

    Good morning all and Happy November. Well yesterday I got no real time in my sewing room. Wound up doing some projects that were on our to do list and a lot of cleaning that I originally hadn't planned on but I'm happy it's done. So today I hope to get more accomplished in my sewing room. It's a cloudy morning here and I don't have to go anywhere so I think it will be a comfy cozy sweat pants day.

    Have a great day all.

    Morning all
    We had about 16 trick or treaters last night, each year gets fewer and fewer, but the little ones who came were just so cute and polite!
    Looks to be an overcast day and one to dig in inside. Hope to get more things packed up for my retreat next week in Lake George. Haven't done any sewing in weeks so will try to cram as much in as possible in 4 days. Had hoped to accomplish a lot more Christmas projects but time is growing short.
    Off to get my first cup of coffee then on to a bit of cleaning.
    Nobody is going to stand up at your funeral and say she had a really expensive sofa and great shoes Life is not about stuff.
