If you could only see me now! I can't stop smiling! I was on the verge of jumping up and down! I keep giving my Santa kisses! I told my Santa I feel like we have a new baby so we are definitely going to give it a name ... his suggestion ... Cadillac :O)
Today Santa and I stopped at a local Ice Cream store that has wonderful chocolate so we could get a stocking stuffer for my dad...I was just unlocking the car to leave and Santa said ... why don't you show me this sewing machine you've been talking about ... i about dropped the chocolate! Since the shop is just a few doors down from the ice cream store we strolled down, i showed it to him, the lady told us all about it (like i didn't already know the info!), I asked a bunch of questions (just to make it look good)... Santa just asked what the warranty was like ... then i asked the lady how many they had in stock and while she was checking Santa said ... let's just get it while we are here! My mouth dropped open, my eyes got huge and i couldn't take the smile off my face :O)

I decided I'm going to get some outstanding projects finished this week-end and so far I'm off to a good start. This evening I made binding for my big Pink quilt and got that sewn on and washed, so now it's all crinkly and pretty on my couch! Check out the picture below ... and then I made and put the binding on one of my schnibbles and made the binding for another schnibble that i plan to get sewn on tomorrow evening when hubby falls asleep in his chair :O) Then all my bindings will be on and I'm going to start a new quilt. This is the new quilt I'm going to start ... you can see the pattern in the top right of the picture, but i just love all this Halloween fabric! I've never been much in to Halloween, but for some reason this year i am so i decided it's time to start making a Halloween quilt. It will probably be finished for this year, but not back from the quilter, so I'll definitely have it for next year.

A while back my quilter Leona was looking for fabric that she had run out of ... she was putting binding on the below quilt and was about 9" short ... UGH! So I posted the fabric and Pat from QuiltsandOtherHobbies just happened to have a fat quarter of the fabric that she gave to Leona. Thank you so much Pat and check out Leona's quilt...she was tickled! One evening dave and i went out to dinner and when we returned home, i was inside getting some things picked up in the kitchen and he came to the window and asked if was hearing any popping noises ... i said no, i was picking up some stuff and in my own world, so he told me to come outside and here is what i found... It's been a while since we've had a fire in our backyard, so it was nice to sit around with the neighbors and visit. Most of the time we hang out in our neighbors backyard around the fire, so this was a nice change.
Other than that, not much has been happening in my part of Ohio. I did go down to Amish Country with a few girlfriends and have some pics of that to show, so hopefully i'll get them posted soon.
Hope you all have a wonderful week!!

This is the hubster's weekend to work so not a whole lot going on ... going out to dinner with the neighbors and while at the store yesterday bought a bottle of wine ... sounds like a good evening!
So i just made a chocolate cake and some homemade chocolate frosting for hubby to take to work tonight and while i was rinsing the dishes the most wonderful smell of rain came thru the kitchen window so i decided i'd do a lil post with some fall stuff.
Last night i dug out my fall quilt and threw it over the couch...it doesn't really match the curtains now, so i'm thinkin it's time for some different curtains for the seasons ;o) This morning i've been working on making some pinwheel blocks using the below fabrics...i'm testing out the way Vickie makes them in THIS tutorial before i do them in a large quilt which i plan to give as a gift. The tutorial says something about leaving bias edges so i figured i better make sure i know what i'm doing. This will probably be just a table topper or small throw.
