just stuff

I can't believe how fast the days just fly by. I did finish a pumpkin applique block. I was megged into buying this BOM last year from Vicky. She kept tempting me with her finished blocks. I really enjoyed making this one. It's needleturned and I'm pleased with how it came out. I'm especially glad to finally be working on the project. I hope you're feeling better Vicky. She has pneumonia so you might want to check up on her. I hope you're taking it easy and resting alot!



We are leaving this morning to go up north to Pittsburgh, NH....it's so peaceful up there and we love it. I have a bag filled with handwork, some magazines and a couple of books to read. We'll be home Monday. My niece will be staying with the girls while we are away. She considers it her vacation....she's a sweetie and we couldn't go without her. :)



I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

I love how your pumpkin looks. I started with the original 3 years ago, and that's still the only block I have finished. =)
