Productive weekend...

Thanks for all the get better wishes.  You all are great.  :)

Friday we just hung around the house with Glenn.  He has taken a week off after a very long summer at work and a much needed sitting at home was a great welcome to us all.  I did manage to get to the quilt preview Friday evening.  Well worth it I must say.  All the ideas flying around in my head won't be good for the checkbook.  They are just ideas, for now.  :)  I didn't get any holiday fabrics at all even though they were all gorgeous.  But I found myself loving this set and could not help myself.
They are from the Moda "Fresh Cottons" line.  I can't wait to finish all my other things on my list so I can get started on my next quilt.  The 'girls' at the quilt shop said to make sure I told Glenn that no one twisted my arm to get this.  The quilt shop is on his mail route and they always tell him when they get new stuff in for my to look at.  He always tells them that he will kindly 'forget' because that means money will be spent.  At least I'm good with supplies now for a while.  :)

Saturday found us at a couple of old book stores in a near by town.  I don't know why I thought it would be a quick trip.  That is one of Glenn's favorite places to go 'hunting' around.  We ended up spending the majority of the afternoon searching for treasures.  It was fun and I know we will be back again, soon.

The pumpkin hats were finished yesterday and they are too cute!  The little ones of the family will look great in them.

Sorry to run but there are lots of things planned for today.
Mostly a quick cleaning around here after lessons.
Then there will be some enjoying the cooler weather today.  A most wonderful high of 65F today!
I'm just too happy about it!  Even with the gray clouds in the sky.
I think I'm seeing a pot of Chicken and White Bean Chili with cornbread on the menu tonight.
Thank you Fall for finally showing up.
I was waiting so patiently for you.
Thanks for not making me wait anymore.  It was hard.



  1. Oh my goodness those hats are so adorable!!! I can't wait to see what you make with those. I love the Moda fabrics.

  2. Oh NO! You took down the picture of your quilt. I miss it! But the pumpkins do remind me of autumn and the little hats are just awesome!

  3. Ok, glad you're feeling some better. Love the hats!!! And, I must have that recipe. It's time for comfort foods; it's getting chilly around here. :-)

  4. Ohhh the pumpkin hats are sooooo sooo great!

  5. LOVE the hats! So glad you're feeling better. The Moda fabric is so pretty. Can't wait to see your next projects! Happy Fall :)

  6. Hi Kar glad to hear you are feeling better. I love your new banner hooray to fall! Finally a cooler day. Those pumpkin hats are so adorable. I am looking forward to seeing what you create with those yummy Moda fabrics. Dont you just love them! Happy crafting!

  7. Fabric is addicting, isn't it? I love to collect it, but rarely do anything with it. It's just hard to let the pretty ones get away.
    The hats are just about the cutest thing I've ever seen!

  8. So happy that you are better!
    The hats are just adorable and the facric is so pretty just wrapped up like it is now!
    Isnt it so fun to have fabric and yarn around just waiting to have something spectacular made out of it!!
    Have a great day,Kar

  9. Oh! such cute hats I love them. It's always great when one gets something new and colorful. Fabric squares can be addictive :) My problem is I would never sew them together when they look so pretty in that little round.

  10. I am loving the weather, too. Even if it means being cold at soccer. It is definitely pumpkin weather now. Time to get a supply of wood in...

  11. Oh my, your pumpkin hats are so cute!!
