Break Is Over!!!

Break is over....and it's time to get back to blogging.  We had a great summer with some good camping trips thrown in.  One with the whole family, even our daughter's guy came, who Big Dot calls "Buddy"!!!  It was great having Buddy along.

The dots are amazing....growing like weeds and so much fun.  We are very lucky to get to spend so much time with them and they keep us extremely entertained.  Big Dot carries on a great conversation and Little Dot is a rolling/crawling machine. 


Quilting, yep I've been busy!!  Attended a wonderful quilt camp in August with my friend Evelyn and finished a topper and an Xmas quilt.....almost anyway.... binding to come!

Then my local quilt shop had it's monthly Quilt Till You Wilt day and I worked on this runner and my latest obsession candle, mats..these will be Xmas presents for a couple quilty friends.  A great fast, easy project.....quilting and binding to be done!

Finally the snowman heads are done, and just in time for Halloween I made this super fast Halloween Jack...yes the binding was on in time!  

and......some Xmas stockings for some kiddos...............


Next week I am heading out with a group of quilty friends for the Quilt In A Day Fall camp which means spending time with my sweet friend Annie....woohooo!   Have my projects cut and boxed...what???? I'm ready ahead of time....SHOCKING!!!  Can you tell I'm excited to go??

It feels good to be back, but better to be seeing what all of you have going on!!  Happy weekend everybody!!!
