How does the time go by so fast?? I keep telling myself I'll try to keep up with the blog, but it never seems to work out. Maybe because things have been a bit "boring" of late?! Now, don't get me wrong, boring can be GOOD!
I found this interesting quiz as I was surfing around last night. I think it captures me pretty well, although I don't see "gray" as a color that I would have associated with myself. That brings up a whole other set of thoughts: how DO we see ourselves?? It's easy to pick from a list of attributes, but when we think about ourselves what do we actually focus on?? for thought. Think I need another cup of coffee to delve into that!

Playtime Is Over

Well, it is coming to an end... day #4 of 4 off in a row! I must say I got a lot accomplished over the past few days- I even knocked out another runner sample today, so am now almost up to date on commitments! Can I say I really feel good about it. It will probably take me 4 more days to clean the cyclonic mess the sewing room has going for it, but I guess that will have to be one of those "all-in-good-time" kind of things. Tomorrow it is back to work for all of two days before I return to my regular 3 day weekend. I'm getting spoiled and could get used to this easily! Saturday is the start of my Quilt Guild, and I'm excited. It is always a great girl's day out. Next month Kaffe Fassett is coming to lecture! Now that is one show-and-tell that will be of great interest!!

I'm anxiously awaiting the photo of child #3's latest project. She called last night at 9:45 to announce she was a "binding fool" and had completed 3 of 4 sides of the "couch quilt". Wanted to know if she should keep on stitching,or call it a night. I think it was just a guise to let me know she was "this close" to being Done-Done! It is always exciting. I think she decided to call it quits as she did call again today at about 2:30 or so to announce that she had taken her last stitch and was pretty proud of herself. Photos! I want photos!!

Weatherman is telling us that we're headed back into the hot and humid 90's beginning tomorrow. Yuck! Where is my beautiful fall weather? Ok, so it is only September and it is traditional in this part of NY that when the school bells ring on the first day of school the weather should turn hot, hot hot! I for one would love for that tradition to go the way of the horse and buggy.

And just a last bit of musing- look what is living part -time under my Japanese Maple tree! Oh so cute, and best yet, Goober Beagle could care less!

Labor Day

The end of summer...but that only means my favorite time of year will soon peek around the corner. I love fall, and can't wait for cool days and even cooler nights. I love crawling under the covers and pulling them up around my chin. Must be some left over childhood comfort thing, but it sure does make me happy. We had a very quiet holiday weekend. Mine has been extended until Thursday as today is the first appointment with the Rheumatologist and then tomorrow is a normal day off. I've made some use of all my free time since new classes at the shop will be scheduled and the Empire Quilt fest is getting closer!
Sunday evening hubby and I attended a lovely wedding- the first born of a very dear life long friend. Sean was extremely handsome as were his brothers and his dad- decked out in their tuxes! The bride was "radiant". I know they say that about all brides, but Jessica truly was. She smiled so much and laughed happily during the ceremony, as did her groom. They were so happy and truly saw no one other than each other. It was so apparent. We all were delighted.
The wedding was outdoors on a clear beautiful night in the gardens of an old mansion in Altamont NY. The Inn is not far from the fairgrounds and that evening the Scottish Games were still going strong. Everyone got a huge chuckle when just as the bride and groom completed their beautifully written vows, a roar from the neighboring crowd erupted and full bagpipes went into play! It was a marvelous moment...unplanned, but totally in sinc with the happenings up the road at the wedding!

On the home front, I got to spend a lazy Monday in the sewing room. We had a quiet day planned and it was wonderful to be so relaxed. I completely finished one sample and made up the top of another. Unfortunately, I didn't have batting for the second, so will have to pop into the shop later and pick some up. I still have tonight and tomorrow to work on things!
I also got to give into guilty pleasure and settled in front of the TV and finished up most of the applique on a fall swap piece (so no photos until it reaches its new owner, just in case!) and watched a marathon of Design Star on HGTV. I think I could get used to being a "slug"!
Off to see what I can accomplish this morning before heading off to the doctor's office. Here is a peek at the Monday projects. Enjoy!
