Karla, love your quilt!  I'm collecting R&B fabrics, I'll have to keep this in mind, thanks for the inspiration.

Gini, I will let you know that depending on where we live, winter ends anywhere between April and May...  So.......

Thanks for all of the nice comments on my r/w/b split 9-patch top.  It was fun, quick and easy, just what I needed to feel like I was accomplishing something.

Today I am working on the borders for the round robin that Nana passed off to be at the Oregon Retreat.  I've got 2 sides bordered, only 2 more to go, but don't know if I'll get it done today.  Today is another TaeKwonDo day, so that really shortens the time I have to work on it.

Tomorrow is the Halloween Party and Trunk'or'Treat at the younger boys school, and I always help with that.  After their party, they are all in costume and parents, grandparents, etc. are stationed around the parking lot with their trunks open.   The kids come buy and you toss candy into their trick or treat bags. There are about 450 kids in the school (the school is K-4) so this takes quite a while, so I don't imagine I will get any sewing done tomorrow either.

Saturday, my DBIL brought me 12 of his "Harley Davidson" t-shirts and requested a t-shirt quilt, so I've added that to my stack of quilts to make and/or finish, and I still have the embroidered blocks that my cousin in North Dakota left with me when they came to visit this summer to make into a quilt.  The blocks were embroidered by her mother before she passed so they are very special.

My DH tells me I better get busy with all of these projects as November's birthdays and holidays and December's birthdays and holidays will surely cut down on the time I have to work on them.  I guess with that note, I'll get off of the computer and get busy working on them.

I am still bummed out about my lack of progress yesterday.  Met with friends to sew all day, and the only thing I did was measure wrong, make mistakes and waste fabric.  I guess that wedding quilt just needs to stay at home for me to work on.  Won't get another chance until Sunday.   Taking some time out today to celebrate, about a month late, DH's and my 18th anniversary.

He's not up yet, so I am going outside with a cup of coffee and my favorite blanky to pet the cat and watch the sunrise.  It's a nice one this morning.

Yesterday, I did a lot of "frogging" before spending time at the boys' school for Halloween parties, etc., and then trick'or'treating.  Today, I plan on putting everything back together and hope it will go together properly today.

Then, if I get lucky, I may get to work on another project, too.  I'd like to start the border(s) on my MQ9 today, if I get a chance.  I really need to get some of these UFO's finished, I'm beginning to feel stressed with so many of them setting around.

Sounds lovely!  November and December are the cloudiest months in Minnesota averaging 19 cloudy days each month.  What a dreary way for winter to roll in.

No quilting for me today. I'm at my daughters watching the kids while son in law takes daughter on a surprise trip tonapa valley, Ca for her 40th birthday. They just left for the airport. She doesnt know where they are going. I have a two page list of places I need to get the kids to from today thru Tuesday. When my kids were 11 and 8 the only place I had to get them to was school. Hope I don't forget and leave one of them somewhere! Should be a fun weekend.

Getting set up to quilt.  I haven't worked on anything for a while, but I have purchased from our local resale store a computer desk and a table.  The table was bigger than I though and I had to cut 10" off the legs, but now it's perfect.  The desk is for my computerized mid-arm on a frame.  It's a stand-up desk (no place to sit) with fold down wings (won't need those) on wheels.  It has a smaller footprint and is on casters so it'll fit in the room better.  It even has a surge suppressor strip built in and opens from the back as well as the front for all the cables.  I love it.  Now if I can pull everything else out of that room and clean out the closet, I can move the bins of fabric into that and out of the hall.  Then I should just about be all set for every bit of quilting I need to do in that room.  I'm so excited.  My very own, dedicated quilting room!!!!!

Hopefully.  I'm still working on the best layout.  It's not a huge room, but I have a lot of stuff to fit in there.
