(please note I started this a few days ago!)

it's just past 10:30pm. Both girls are down, and I am still up! R woke me up at 5am...5...on a morning I didn't have to open. Ughhh!!! She got one of the flu mist boosters and we have to go back in 30 days for the other one. H has an apointment in about a month, so I am going to call tomorrow or thurs (my two easy or off days from work) and see if I can squeese R in at the same time.

So as I was waiting to go to bed, making sure both girls were really down (yup, R came out for water but fell asleep before I delivered it moments after she asked for it. silly girl!) I was quilting the Gobble Gobble top. I didn't win. Bummer. All three winners had more pumpkin patch themed quilts, a lot more applique which I am not liking yet. This was my first attempt at it and I need some help, and they had a lot more detail. In fact all three looked mighty similar if you ask me, but I think I am just being a sore beginner loser. you can see every one's entry's here. I ran out of bobbin thread and only have the outside border to do, so decided to call it a night even though I really want to finish.

I was hopping around on both those blog hops and now have a new pattern I ordered from Crazy Old Ladies (who are neither crazy nor old) and a new Christmas gift that I am making....FOUR of! it's a little wall hanging. Out the window went my constitution for only making quilts I would USE and would warm'll insulate the house right? That's useful!

Quickly a Little give away here: Bummer, the picture was supposed to come too...I guess I need to work on my blog skills.

remind me sometime to tell you about my design ideas, but for the moment this has been sitting unposted for long enough! I will share more soon! =)
