So yesterday I forced the kids outside for a few pic's. I think they really enjoyed the shoot. Now to just pick one and write up a letter, print, address and send............oh my!


I made a quick table runner last week for myself, I usually make gifts this time of year but this fabric has cats on it and I collect cat Christmas fabric. I also have an end table I like to cover in the living room and this was perfect. I even put it out before Thanksgiving and no one complained about Christmas before Thanksgiving. I put away all the Turkey Day things this afternoon, it was sad but it's time to move on and get ready for the biggest mess of the year............whoooohoooo...........anyone else feeling overwhelmed yet?

State quilt

 Quilter's Candy Shoppe hosted a trunk show last week to kick off their anniversary sale. The Holt Co. Museum showed off their quilt collection. This is a state flower quilt made by a ladies aid group and was raffled off. I should remember more details but I don't..........sorry. I did take pic's of Neb. and Iowa blocks.

I thought maybe I should post something quilty here since this is supposibley a quilty blog...........

My Mom

We love Halloween around here, especially dressing up so no one knows who we are. Kelsey invited us out for a party and told everyone to dress up. Well no one knew it was her except for one guy there, not even her own grand kids! She gave everyone hugs before she left..............Kelsey didn't have a clue who the alien was at his party!
