I completed a cq exchange block, made 7 dishcloths/washcloths, and worked on a cross-stitch project while gone, and taught john how to play skip-bo and he whooped me playing dominoes! we walked a lot, took dogs on more walks, and relaxed, watched tv, etc,etc....It was a wonderful, cool, four days!! . Always nice to go away and nice to come back. In October, we go in search of Fall colors..*~*CAROLE*~*

The details cant be seen to well, but at least you get the idea--it is Thimbleberies Wiggles and Giggles and I put this together for the LQS to put on display. when they are done with it--I will get it back..for my grnadson or to donate...
I have been playing around with a block for Sharon on

That is what I have been doing--they are making such a mess in this house, i dont dare clean--tomorrow should be the last day of messes--with drywall, etc,etc and sanding the mud, etc, etc....it is gonna take me a week to clean everything---BLECH!!!!!!! *~*CAROLE*~*

and worked two others under contract. I conducted another charity sew and have participated in other activities as well, none of which involved house cleaning beyond what one might see when they came in! hehehehe--the most enjoyable event was buying and receiving the new sewing machine (A JANOME) and now thinking about all the new stuff i can learn including learning to do my own machine quilting!
some guild members and I took 30 quilts and 2 afghans to the woman that heads up the local safe house..YEAH!!! literally buried her in quilts---
Missy and Laci are doing great! they are getting along much better now! Laci still and always will, rule the roost! and that is ok--she is Mom's girl--and Missy is dad's girl and you can tell here---LOL--that is is for now--i gotta go for now--playing to be done!
