Happy Halloween

Here is what you can do with a little orange fabric.
Model is grandaughter #2. At least when she spits out her carrots, it matches.

For another fun Halloween activity idea, go to and look at their Halloween video. Save it in your favorites as there is a new daily special with $5.oo shipping.
Anyone with a fall/Halloween quilt, send me a picture to post in the blog.

Christmas quilt

At the AQS show in Des Moines, I purchased a kit of Christmas flannel for a very cozy quilt.
The Primitive Gathering booth was quite crowded and I spotted the fabric in another lady's arm and then saw the sample made up using the very simple + already owned book Turning Twenty-Book 2. Another shopper was also purchasing a kit also. No time for indecision. Not many left. One came home with me. Stay posted. How many days till Christmas??? Sorry, picture of fabric to follow.

Free sewing time this weekend at the REC building starting on Friday at noon and continuing Saturday until the last sewer is ready to quit. Mini- classes with projects if you wish.
$20.00 charge for non-members.
