Happy Thanksgiving!!

Doubt that I'll have anything to post between now and turkey day so thought I'd pass along my wishes for a wonderful day with friends and family!

At the local antique mall

Had our monthly ladies birthday lunch at the local antique mall today and snapped a couple of beautiful quilts that would be lovely for the Christmas season.  But I really need to make my own rather than spend a few hundred I don't have for one of these--

and one that's not so Christmas-y but still pretty

It's done

Well, the top anyway (still needs a little pressing but only the two long edges!!).  I need to get backing made and want to finish up the jelly roll quilt (just a border for that one) with backing and take both to the longarmer for just an all over pantograph.  That way I'll have two that will need binding and I can cover up and keep warm while doing it!  LOL  Then there's a Christmas quilt I want to get started on..I know, a little late on the start but it'll be done for next year, right?

We had such beautiful weather just a couple of days ago but that has ALL changed!  It is SO COLD and I have a roaring fire going trying to stay warm.  Yesterday, before it got bitterly cold, I stopped at my favorite 'twig gathering' spot to pick up some starter twigs for the fire.  It's by a church and when I pulled into the parking lot--WOW!!  There were some BEAUTIFUL red-hued trees that just GLOWED.  My photo doesn't do it'll just have to take my word for it!

Then today I had to run by my church and noticed how cool the clouds looked so thought I'd share a couple of photos of those.

You will be proud to know that I have put the 'stop' border on the Halloween quilt and have two sides of the final border on.  Will take a final photo once it's complete.  I'm even surprising myself!!  LOL

Center is done

but this is usually where I slack off!!  If I could get the borders done on this one and the jelly roll race-type quilt, I'd have two to take to the longarmer.  Hmmmm, wonder how that'll go!!

Clicking along

on my Halloween quilt (yes, I know, it's day 3 AFTER Halloween!!).  Think I only need 5 more blocks before I'm done with that portion of the quilt.  No telling how long it will take to get it to the 'ready for quilting' stage.  We'll see....
