It's hard to believe that I'm at the end of the 3rd day of my 5 days of vacation and I know the next two days will disappear quickly. I've gotten some things done but not quite as much as I had hoped to accomplish. Yesterday, I got together with 3 of my quilting friends and we did a little bit of sewing, a lot a bit of talking, and even more time going to lunch and stopping at Broadbent's after lunch. It was a FUN day together so I didn't mind not getting too much done.
I did manage to finish making all of the pumpkin tissue holders and a couple halloween treat bags. I'll take pictures tomorrow if I get a chance.
Today I wanted to SEW too but, I had to take my son to the doctor for a sore throat and then we had to get the registration done on the car that he drives at school. Well, it didn't pass the safety part of the test and I spent most of the day taking care of getting a new windshield (it was cracked) and also going to the car store to get new light bulbs for two of the lights that were burnt out. I pulled into Jiffy Lube 10 minutes before they closed and finished the paper work and got my 2009 sticker. It's done! What a relief!!!
I thought it was about time that I posted some of my Halloween quilts so, here's one of them. It's my pumpkin quilt. I made it last year and this year it's hanging in the office at the school where I work. It's fun to see it every day! I'll post another Halloween quilt tomorrow along with the instructions on how to make it.
Close up of the machine quilting my friend Kaylene did on the quilt. Isn't it cute? I thought so. She used the pumpkins in the fabric to mirror the stitching.
