I found some beautiful fabric that I am thinking of using to make a Card Tricks Quilt. I'll post a picture as soon as I have a couple of blocks constructed. Enjoy your evening.

The weatherman here says we have had the second warmest September on record and as soon as October hit the temps have been 12 - 15 degrees below what they usually are this time of year. I guess the weather we have been having the last week doesn't usually get like this until Thanksgiving. We had snow the 4th of October which melted in a couple of days.
I have been working on a quilt from Bonnie Hunter's website called Blue Ridge Beauty. I'm hoping to get it pieced and ready to quilt when we bring the quilting machine down in the spring. What have you been making? Have you already started on Christmas gifts? I have started knitting a shawl for a gift, but so far that's about it. Well, guess I'll go snuggle in bed with a couple of quilts and a book for awhile.

This morning I woke up to snow here in Idaho. I have taken pictures, but so far I haven't found my card reader so I can download the pictures to the computer. As I just looked out the window it is snowing still. Idaho now feels like home and I feel like a visitor familiar with the area when I go to WA. I have even found a quilt group to join which meets next week. I am really looking forward to that I am more than ready to get back to quilting again. I'll add pictures as soon as I can. More later.

I did manage to get some sewing time this trip. I completed a Christmas top I purchased as a kit from either Mary Maxim or Herschenners I can't remember which. I also made new curtains for the kitchen window. They really brighten up the room. I'm going to use the same material and make some for the dining room when we go back. I took extra time and lined up the checks so they are even. That took some doing because it certainly wasn't printed on grain.
I caught Miss Emma enjoying the sun coming through the living room window. I forgot to take the scratch pad for the cats so DH took a spare pad and used it for a guide and made a holder for the pad. It worked really well and the cats enjoyed using it to sharpen their claws. It is really nice to have a handy husband.
I hope to return to blogging on a more regular basis soon. Life should be settling down to a slower pace in the very near future.

Our trip to ID went very well traveling the first time with 3 cats. We stopped in Boise for the night going down. The girls were restless and jumpy but otherwise they did okay. Lucy found a place where she thought she was hidden.
All three cats were really glad when we arrived at the new house. Took them about 3 days to settle down. Lucy was still having a little trouble feeling secure when I found her in the bathtub. Emma made herself comfortable after a couple of days while Rosie took a little longer.
We managed to get a door put into the room where I will be quilting. Before you had to go down the stairs into the shop and then go upstairs to get into the room. It had no doors or windows in it. We've added a door so once we get the sun room finished I'll be able to go from the house through the sun room directly into the quilt room. I'll be able to show you pictures once we get a couple of windows put in there is no light at the moment. We have to finish the wiring, put in insulation, drywall, then paint and put down a floor.
The good looking man (DH) is on his way to NC for his 45th high school reunion on the 12th. He will then go to Pittsburgh to see the grandkids and daughter unit. He took my older camera so hopefully he will remember to take lots of pictures. When he returns we load up the truck and head back to ID to get some of the work done so we can finish up with the moving.
Sorry this is so long, but couldn't post any pictures from the library computer. I've noticed that I have 102 posts but my give away will have to be a bit later on. Once I have been able to unpack I'll be able to have a giveaway so I'll keep thinking on it so it will be extra special and you keep checking to see when it happens.
Now I'm off to the quilt store and the knit shop while I am on my own and unsupervised.

In between all that I even managed to quilt a couple of customer quilts. This is one of them ready to go back to the customer. The photo doesn't really do it justice it has some really lovely colors in it.
I should be back to post on a regular basis soon I hope. Stay tuned.

I did manage to finish the quilt I was making for a customer so that picture will also be uploaded later. Just wanted to check in so you wouldn't think I had fallen off the face of the earth. I'll post again soon.
