Sunday ~ Sunday
Our impatiens in front of the garage are still looking good. As soon as our temperature drops a few more degrees they will be gone. That's always a sad day for me. For some reason I have always had very good luck with impatiens and I plant them liberally around the front of the house in pots every year.
Yesterday we had a short workday planned out of town, which turned into a long workday, so our fun plans had to be postponed until a later date. I was able to make quick stops at two quilt shops on our way home ~ not the ideal situation for me when Hubby is parked at the curb with the engine running! Talk about shopping under the gun! I managed to find a few purple fabrics for my new quilt that will become my winter project ~~
These will be added to the purples already in my stash. This new project will be a Log Cabin variation in purples and cream only. More on this later. In the meantime I need to busy myself making the surprise project for my Secret Sister Santa group I joined. My SS is out of the country, so I need to get her gift completed so it can be mailed early. I can't tell you what it is just in case she follows my blog.
One of the quilt shops I visited yesterday was celebrating their 16th anniversary, so everything was 16% off. They also had drawings for door prizes ~ pincushions in the shape of cake slices ~~ and guess who won one of the 16! There are also a few decorated pins that were included. Cute!
Hubby is nearly dragging me off the computer to walk with him in the woods to set up a tree stand for hunting. How can I say no to my teddy bear of a husband!
Until next time, take care and I wish you an abundance of
Peace & Plenty!
