What a Relief!

Well news from my dad's specialist visit was good news. Thank you Lord. I was so nervous today. I called my mom when I got home from work and she said the doctor didn't feel there was anything to worry about. Some of his test numbers were up but they were based on numbers from 2001. He said he was going to keep an eye on things but nothing to worry about. Thank you for the prayers. I am sooooo releaved.

Floor cloth giveaway

Well, I didn't win the floor cloth. It went to at home with amy. It was still fun to try.

I can't believe it it Oct. 21st already. Time is going so quickly.

I would like to ask a favor. If you think about it, please say a prayer for my dad. He has to see a specialist tomorrow in regards to his prostate. Not sure what is going to happen. I would really appreciate your prayers.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Fall Color, Pumpkins and Time with Larry...Priceless

Larry has to work tonight so he had the afternoon off. Soooo we did some running around. This is a pretty tree infront of a lovely little church. I should have cropped it before I uploaded it, Oh well.

We stopped and got some pumpkins. I can't believe how much I enjoyed this. Really, you would have thought it was Christmas. It probably felt like it was Christmas by the time I made up my mind. There were so many pretty things.

I put a few by my back door.

A few on the other side of the door. I also found a stem that was broken off out in the parking lot. I have a stem now to make a fabric pumpkin.

A few out in the yard. I still have one to put out by the front door. I usually put most decorations out by the front door. However, we don't ever use our front door...so it seems like I never get to see the pretty decorations, so this time I reversed it. I need to rake, cut grass and do some weeding around my decorated areas but I just had to put them out anyway. I have had a very fun day off. I hope you are enjoying your day also.

A little inspiration

This wonderful quilt
was on display at the Metro Parks Quilt Show and I just thought it was wonderful. I had thought I would like to try this pattern. I was very excited when I found the transfers at Pat Catans a couple week ago. I think that this might be one of my winter projects. I just love looking at quilts. Posted by Picasa

Sunday Summed Up

Sunday was a fun day. I got up early and cooked a nice breakfast for Larry. This suprised him because he is usually the one to make breakfast on Sundays and he usually has to work at getting me out of bed. Not sure what happened. We spent the whole day inside and it wasn't even raining or cold. We just did some little jobs around the house and just rested all day. It was fun.( Oh wait, I already said that) I spent most of the afternoon picking up my sewing room and occasionally stopped to check out what my bloggy friends were doing? hehe. I was going to post a pic of my sewing room, the newly picked up version, but decided it still wasn't picked up enough. Maybe another time. I was able to fold up my wool and put it in a cabinet that I had in the basement. I was happy to get that organized alittle. I still have a lot upstairs that I am using on my current project.

I also started sewing some charms together to try out my new "lil twister" template. I was on a role when Carlee came running into my sewing room, at a 100 miles an hour, carrying a stuffed animal in the shape of a beagle puppy that was making snoring noices. As she run under my sewing table she hit the cord to my iron. It fell on the floor and broke. Soooo no iron-no more sewing today. This is what I got done so far.
I guess the next step, after I get an iron, is to sew on the borders and then cut out the pinwheel blocks. I thought I would make a little version first to see how I do. Well, I hope you all had a great weekend and that you are enjoying your monday. See ya later it is time to get ready for work.
