Can you believe it's October? I get out my acrylic
paints and paint little faces and cute scenes on mini
pumpkins for my family and neighbors! They are a blast to
give away! It's fun to see their faces light up!
The air is different this time of year... The mornings are
cooler...YIKES!! I've even had my furnace on!! My grand
children and I counted pumpkins on porches. The orange
and purples are everywhere! I've completed 2 new mini
quilts to hang on my mini wood stands. Can you tell it's
my favorite time of year!!
Didn't we have a great Quilt Fest at Layton this year?
What a fantastic quilt show they had! Some of our favorite
people entered quilts! They were truly amazing!! Several
quilting friends won ribbons, even money! Mostly sharing
those beautiful works of art is very inspiring! Looking
forward to next year!
Hope you are finding things that ZING your heart and
make you want to think beyond the walls, box, fence...
Life is truly grand and I can't think of anything nicer than
bundling up in a warm quilt or giving a quilt away! Sew
get out the creative juices and your machines and sew,
I think I want to wish to each and every one of you lots
and lots of refilled bobbins! If we say may your bobbin
never run out, then that means we may not be sewing as
much as we want!! SEW lots of refills to you!

The Women’s shelter is in need of twin sized quilts for all the beds they have there. A quilt would do so much to make it a more homey and happy place to be so if you can make one to
donate that would be fantastic!
