Don't Fall over in shock

I know a post from me two days in a row. Will wonders never cease.

I stuck my head out of the quilt room long enough yesterday to get these pictures. The first one are the grapes growing down by the garden. We also have some dark purple ones out in front of the house and they are starting to turn soon they'll be ready. The second picture is of some of the trees and bushes around the house. They are starting to turn colors. Seems like they just started showing this week. Before we know it winter will be here.

I'm hoping DH will be back by tomorrow night with the quilting machine.

If I could Make Money

If I could make money as fast as time passes I'd be really rich. I knew I had alot of fabric, but even I'm stunned at how much is really there. Equally stunning is the amount of scrap pieces I have saved over the years from various projects and the ones I have been given because no on wanted to deal with them.

So this weekend I decided that instead of putting fabric on the shelves I needed to make something so this is what I have been working on and hope to have the top put together today. I'm really liking how it is coming out. I also put borders on a small red and white panel I found so it is ready to be quilted. It feels like progress of sorts.
Dh is in WA packing up some more of his tools and the quilting machine. Without any problems he should be back home by Tuesday night or Wednesday. Hopefully, by this time next weekend the machine will be put together and I will be quilting once again. I haven't quilted on my machine since May 2009.
So back to sewing while it is peaceful and quiet here.
