Mini Valentine using Marjorie’s
Candy Hearts embroidery designs
that work with the Accuquilt GO! Hearts 2″ die.
I also wanted a Valentine’s mug rug,

New Hop and a Winner!

Hello! It has been a while…

and after a very fun, successful trip to Houston,
I am so ready to get back to “normal”….
I heard someone say that “normal”
is just a setting in your dryer, he he! I agree!
… but I’ll still give it a try, LOL!

I want to thank everyone for visiting during the
Glorious Autumn Block Party hosted by Michele.
I really enjoyed reading all about what you love most about quilting!
For me, it’s the color, the fabric,
and the wonderful friends I’ve met thanks to quilting!
So…. the winner of my Autumn Bliss Pattern and charm pack is:
Rebecca Grace! She said… 

“You come up with the sweetest designs,

and this tree is no exception. Adorable! 

What do I like most about quilting?
I love that, unlike the hours I spend making meals that just get eaten,
washing laundry that just gets dirty again, etc.,
quilting gives me something lasting to show for my work.
And I like playing with fabric. :-)”

Love, love…°Ü°

Gwen… she said:

One of the best things about Fall is the cool, crisp nights!
We love to sit out on the swing on our back porch,

snuggle up in a cozy quilt and just enjoy the refreshing air… 🙂

and Helen…
My favorite part of fall is–I have a list

–warm days and cool nights, beautiful color of the leafs,

the calmness all around and

hearing the sound of a football game

while diner is in the crock pot and I can sew!

Indeed, Fall is the best time of year!
Now, the 3rd winner is “me”

Yeah, Mdm. Samm made this wonderful cozy for moi!

You should see all the beautiful hand work,

the goose-down-filled liner,

the beautiful “orange” tulip cup

and then, there’s the tiny cup candle

way cute, don’t you think?

And yes, it’s all in orange!!! How perfect is that?!!!

Just lovely…

…thanks so much Samm °Ü°
I will enjoy it for a long time!
One of my favorite things about Fall

is the memories I have with my children…

fun costumes, going to the pumpkin farm
and apple orchards, hot cider…

long walks surrounded by the beautiful colors of fall…

I could go on and on!

Here are my little guys back in ’91

don’t they look adorable?

Hope you are having a wonderful fall season!
