Not often does Stacy get to come and just sew, so we took advantage of her free time! Went to town taking care of my errands, then back to the studio!
She worked on her Pineapple blocks.....................
I worked on a binding then paper-pieced ..
I love spending time with my kids! This was a real treat for me and helped the time pass more quickly! THANKS Stacy!!!!

Woke up to a dusting of snow on the ground this morning--UCK!!! It's not that I don't like snow, it's just I'm never ready for it to come! With my job, I'd love for someone to invent "road heaters" to keep the snow off the roads! But, not having to work today, it was ok! Even got me out of raking the leaves in the front yard!

Everyone seems puzzled why a 20 year old developed a cateract????? No one seems to be able to explain this....
Continued prayers for her as this is all happening during mid-terms at school....She only has one professor that is giving her some grief over this, but hey, my kids' eyesight comes first!!!! We are tired! Need rest, sleep but don't rest..............
Am I sewing/quilting? Trying but not going so great....."Jack" has been very busy the last days so have walked away from the machine for now. Maybe in a day or so.........

I started a new quilt top! I know, I'm bad! But, as you know, I have been working on using up my stash...I think this is the last kit I cut using my Civil War fabric! The blocks are make--used them as L&E's--so now I can start sewing the rows together.......

Quilting wise--anything accomplished?????
- Puzzle Play--working on the borders (my project I have been taking to Ann's)
- Medallion--working on the 36 three inch blocks for the next border
- Celtic--still hand stitching the bias strips
I also need to sort through the batting closet and see what I have in there! I would like to get a top into the hand-quilting frame and also need to send a few out to be quilted and maybe machine quilt a few of the smaller ones myself............Yep, I have enough to keep me busy, but.....

I did have a highlight this past week! My friend,Pat, and her sister-in-law were passing through the area so they stayed with me one night. (happy to have the rooms now to host overnight guests! Altho, I miss my kids!) Park Street pizza was requested for dinner Tuesday evening--so yummy! Wednesday we did some "cheese" shopping followed by lunch at Mrs.Yoder's where Ann joined us. All to soon it was time for them to continue on to PA. :(
So, here's to hoping I can get back into the 4:30am wake up call, work 6-9 and 2:30-5 routine real quickly! If not, it's gonna be a loooooong winter!

Since we attended an in-service on Friday, we don't have our ususal "day-before-school-starts" one. Not sure I like this since there are usually last minute changes, but will just gowiththeflow tomorrow morning! A nice quiet smooth start would be great!!!
I finally got my border on my Medallion Quit on this morning--now to get the next one cut, which again consists of "geese."
Also need to keep working on a few other UFO's but as you know--staring new projects is soooo much fun!

The x-rays show a hairline fracture in his right wrist, so he's sporting a blue cast on it. I was very nervous with him leaving this afternoon for another run and it being all the way to Oregon!! It took Shellz and me three hours to get him on the road (helping him stock his refrigerator, packing the suitcase, making sure he had everythingm and updating paperwork). Just talked to him and all seems to be going well, just taking a little more time than usual. I just to have faith that the trip will go smoothly and all will be ok!
right thumb and wrist
cuts and bruises all over
only one toe bruised
