This Week

This week was the kind of week I really hate to see come to an end. 

Making chocolate dipped Halloween treats and having a fun day with family and friends.

Gorgeous blue skies as backdrop to some of the most beautiful foliage I have seen.

A road trip to Ikea.  The car packed to the gills, with my grown kids in the backseat, laughing and joking. Looking in the rear view mirror was a glimpse into the past.

Fun little fabric finds to add to my stash. 

Carving pumpkins while cheering on the Red Sox in the World Series. We love adding cinnamon to the lids. Instant pumpkin pie aroma :)

Happy mail.

I'm hoping to have a chance to follow the Quilty Fun Sew Along and work on some of the blocks from the book this weekend. Can't wait!!

Happy weekend!


  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful day!
