Wow, how time flies! It will be the holidays before you know it. And with all THAT comes the new year! And the new mystery!! Woohoo!!! Of course, if you are like me, you have a million and one things to do before that gets here. It has been a busy time already……closing up the “camp”, putting the flower gardens to bed for the winter, mulching endless leaves and harvesting the apples, squash and anything else of value in the vegetable garden. I did find time to do some quilting though. I always try to squeeze some of that in, OF COURSE! I finished a couple small UFO’s, made a tractor pillow for my new to be grandson and this week I pounded out a baby quilt for a baby shower tomorrow.
Now that the weather is getting colder I’ll be able to spend more time inside and hopefully getting more accomplished. I’ve played with a couple of scrappy ideas that I’ll share with you when I have something to show. I’m still working at doing machine quilting but I think it’s a losing battle. Anything more than stitch in the ditch, that dreaded meander or echo stitching just doesn’t measure up. I know……practice, practice, practice. Bah Humbug! Give me a needle any day!
