Snow Today!


We woke up to snow today which is early for my neck of the woods. They said it would stay on the grass, they lied! We have about 6" and traffic is a nightmare! They keep saying it will turn to rain...we'll see!


Yesterday at my guild we had Diane Knott as our speaker. I have followed Diane for a long time and even made a pillow out of her book, Scrap Quilt Secrets for a blog hop. Diane was as warm and friendly as she comes across on her blog, Butterfly Threads Quilting She also has a wonderful southern accent which is so charming! Everyone enjoyed her quilts and we look forward to her new book coming out soon, Strip Quilt Secrets.


Every year in November we have a bake sale. It is a tasty fund raiser and the members love it! I made apple dumplings.


The ladies at Undercover Quilters were very welcoming to me on Monday night. It was a long rainy ride home but worth all the nice people who welcomed me and seemed to enjoy my quilts. Now I need to put all these quilts away and clean up my room so I can work!


My friend, Stephanie gave me some good books to read. Right now I am reading the top one, Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell. So far so good, it's a page turner! The other two look good as well. I love the feeling of a stack of books waiting for me.


I can't believe that Thanksgiving is next week, it feels like the Halloween candy isn't even gone yet!
I know it is early this year but still...


I have some grandchildren who have reached the age of gift cards )-: I know that is what they want but it feels so impersonal. At least these will make them feel more festive.
This week I am planning my Thanksgiving and trying to get some projects planned so I can sew when I have a few minutes here and there during the busy holiday season.
Do you have any holiday projects you are trying to finish up?

  1. It was so great to finally meet you in person! Thanks so much for making me feel so welcome. Be careful in the snow, I'm sorry I didn't get to see it, but I'm glad I got home before it arrived.

    I literally can't believe Thanksgiving is next. Thank goodness I have a small group, I don't have my head in the game yet.
    happy reading. I always appreciate your reviews

    glad your presentation went well, I ordered that quilt book from our library to look at, she looks like a kindred spirit to your style.

  7. Nothing like a nice stack of books just waiting to be read. I enjoyed The Dive From Clauson’s Pier. I’m sewing blocks together from the biggest bed quilt I’ve ever made. The huge size wasn’t exactly intentional...
