Autumn quilt...
done just in time for the wintry weather! Snowed most of the day- very little stayed, but the children were all bouncing off the walls- pointing out each and every snowflake. Remember the excitement of the first snow? I still feel the same thrill.
My friend, Sandy, gave me these sweet 9-patches. I just couldn't resist them at this time of the year. The quilt is entirely too big for the wall, it's a queen size, and so you can only see the top third of it. The days have been just too windy to take pictures outside. And talk about gloomy! But I've kinda enjoyed the cloudy days and the rain- good excuse to hunker down and read a good book- like I need an excuse! (I am reading the Twilight series and enjoying them.)
I finally, finally, finished all the trimming of the hst and the qst! I am feeling so pleased with myself. Now I am ready to start the fun of putting together a big ole stack of stars. Hope everyone has some fun sewing this week.

the gloomy weather is sure a good excuse to hide noses in a book. I've just started Twilight, and so far am not in love -- the plot is moving to slowly for me, but the story is interesting...

I didn't get any sewing in but did manage a little painting and even got to go to the Waterfowl Festival in Easton over the weekend. (The waterfowl festival is to a carver what a quilt show is to a quilter.)

Hi, girlfriend! I am reading the Twilight series too. I am on #3. Have you gone online to Stephanie Meyer's website and read her draft of Midnight Sun? It is the first part of book one but from Edward's viewpoint. On the website, click on Twilight series and then it will list the four books plus Midnight Sun. You can download it to your computer and read it at your own pace.

Missing you!

Love, Sarah
