Autumn is Approaching

and our sedum is looking great. The butterflies and bees are attracted to the blossoms and stay throughout the day.

Even the leaves are looking great. Here's one with the quilted background of my next flower wallhanging.

I've signed up for a couple more classes with Juanita Yeager and am eager to get started.

Certainly Applies

It says it all, doesn't it?
The gift from Quiltin' Chicks Social Thursday evening, it's from my Secret Santa Chick.

I must have been very good

Our quilting Social, known as The Quiltin’ Chicks, are doing a Secret Santa gift exchange this year.
Last evening I received two really great gifts.
The ‘Santa’ who gave me a set of bead containers must have been peeking into my Hot Fix Crystal Box to see that I’ve been storing my crystals in Sucrets and Altoid tins.
Today I put my ‘stash’ of crystals into the new tins.

Now I can see my entire collection at a glance.

As you can see my stash is a beginners stash. I can see now that I’ll have to print 40% Off coupons from the Hobby Lobby website every other week so that I can afford to fill a few more tins.
Thanks to the thoughtful ‘Chick’ who gave me these wonderful tins.

It's Do-able

Just saw the Hoffman 2008 Challenge Fabric at this url:

It's do-able!!!
unlike the 2007 Challenge Fabric that was very hard for me to work with.

Now to get my hands on some. Next time I get to Columbia I'll be certain to stop in at Appletree Quilting. Yahoo ! ! !

Still no sign of that traveling gal - Benita
nor, is there sign of this year's non-traveling purses. Patience ! ! !
