Trick or Treat...

Jack-o-lantern smiling bright
Witches flying in the night
Ghosts and goblins, cats and bats
Witches with their funny hats
A full moon can't be beat
As we go out to Trick or Treat

Time Flies, Even if You're Not Having Fun...

Time has gotten away from me. I finished a cute pumpkin hat for Emerson. I finished the three button shawl, which Eva K {Mom} swiped. I had a wonderful birthday. Eva K and I went on a quilting retreat with the Rockin’ Bobbins. I'd love to share it with you but I left my camera in mom’s car! Doh!

Then the following Monday, I started a new medication that turned me into this...

Okay... sorry... I mean no disrespect to the toad community. I was an absolute lump last week. As you can see this toad is not blogging. This toad is not holding knitting needles. This toad is not sewing binding on the SIX quilts in her sewing room that need binding. And this toad is certainly not cleaning her house (alright, you are probably on to me, I only clean for guests). The only the thing this toad did was go to the gym 3x and even those attempts were {toadally} pathetic. This toad was very good at napping!

So I called Eva K and she suggested I make a list and then cross things off as I get them done. Girls, (and boys if you are out there) this is her answer for everything. But I did it, and she was right. So, now I need to go cross blogging off my list. And it is good to be in touch with the world again. Now, if I just had my camera back.  {Oh, and this week doesn't seem nearly as bad.}

Birthday Wishes...

My brand new friend Mary and I have lots in common.  We are moms that love knitting, quilting, beading, gabbing, laughing  {not necessarily in that order} AND we share a birthday... which happens to be today! 

Happy Birthday Mary!

To celebrate my birthday, Eva Kay {Mom} arrived yesterday and we are headed to Hickory Road Inn for a quilting retreat.  I'll be gone until Sunday, but I'll be back with some fun pictures!

Aunt Bea's Parlor...

Have you seen this pattern?  It is called Aunt Bea's Parlor from Black Cat Creations.  My BFF Theresa turned me on to it because I ♥ all things repro.

My BFF {yes... you can have more than one BFF and I am lucky enough to have several} Jenny bought the pattern and embroidery designs on a machine embroidery CD. I've been a little under the weather so she cheered me up with a set of flower baskets!  Look at these...

Next week I am headed to Hickory Road Inn for a retreat with the Rockin' Bobbins and Eva Kay, and I plan to take these beauties along.

Today, I am joining my BNF (brand new friend) Mary of Fun with Barb and Mary to shop for buttons for her Summer Braids sweater.  Mary is new to the area so it will be fun to show her around.  She is a fab knitter/quilter/blogger/Mom.  She inspires me with what she gets done...and we share a birthday... next week!

Go & Sew!

Welcome October...

It's here, it's here, my favorite time of the year!  Welcome October!  And just like that... it is 39 degrees in central Indiana.  Fall in the midwest means cool crisp air, trips to the apple orchard, sweaters and jeans, football, Homecoming, falling leaves, pumpkins, goards, Indian corn, and mums.  I LOVE the fall!

I think a pot of chili is in order!
