Happy Halloween and blah, blah, blah!!!

Happy Halloween!!! Our weather is looking a little bad for Halloween night, so we are keeping everything crossed that it doesn't rain. We are still having summer like temperatures, but yesterday there seemed to be a bit of a turn, so maybe by Thanksgiving we will be wearing some Fallish clothes! Baby and his mommy went to the pumpkin patch. I was suppose to go along but woke up with laryngitis and I didn't want to take the chance of giving anything yucky to Luke. Hey Secret Angel Stitcher, notice the socks he is wearing!!!! Wednesday I had a wild shopping day with a couple friends, and frankly I think there was too much laughing and talking and just plain wore my voice out! John is enjoying the quiet :-)!!!
And look!!! A wonderful box of polka dot goodness from my secret swap partner non other than Cucaroo Deb!! Megan was here and we tore right in to it. It wasn't till after everything was unwrapped I realized I forgot to take a picture of how beautifully everything was wrapped...I was in an unwrapping frenzy!! Look at my goodies. Isn't that the cutest polka dot and rick rack Annie you have ever seen? If you click on the picture you can see her up close and personal!! A so sweet spots and dots book for Baby Luke, beautiful blue and brown rick rack. So nice the website is on that package because I will be visiting there very soon. Some wonderful vintage candy(hey I ate this stuff when I was a kid)...Dots, Candy Buttons, Candy Corn and Tootsie Rolls. I know, I know you are thinking, I don't see any Candy Corn and Tootsie Rolls?......well Megan and I torn in to them and eat the whole bag!! Also a so cute polka dot pen and a blue and white polka dot case to hold credit cards/ money, and I am thinking a cute place to tuck in sewing notions for handwork.!! Also, some bath fizzes and a bag of wonderful smelling perfume goodness from some of the most wonderful perfumers! Deb, thank you, thank you...everything is so wonderful! And Deb we are all wishing you the most speedy recover on your recent hand surgery!!!!!

I am please to announce my Stuff Who quilt is done, even with the binding. Two plus years to get this small wall hanging done is not too bad :0(!!! Nancy I actually found the pattern, so I will be writing you. And the nicest person emailed me the other day about the pattern, I accidentally deleted your note. So sorry, but if you email me again promise I'll get the info to you. UPDATE-Kathi was the nice person that emailed me so here's where you can get the Stuff Who pattern http://www.quilt-n-stitch.com/!! Thanks Kathi, glad you checked back!
Baby Calvin's quilt is also finished and Megan is delivering it to him! I won't say I have had major production, but finishing up things here and there sure feels good. My binding business is really picking up now so that's my focus. I will be attending a quilt camp in another week...four days of uninterrupted sewing-YIPEE!

The kids along with family & friends host a huge Halloween party each year so our girl will be coming home. All the kiddos around, oh happy, happy, joy, joy!! Grandpa and I will be watching Baby Luke and having his first sleepover Saturday..what happens at Grammies house stays at Grammies house :-)! Wishing all of you and your families a very happy and safe Halloween. See you later alligators!!
