the weekends offerings

block 66 Happy Thoughts
by Vanessa Goertzen-Lellaboutique
unfortunately there weren't too many happy thoughts as I was doing this one,
loads of household teenagers moving out unexpectly!

block 68 Wild Rose by Pat Sloan
very pretty block, so many choices for finishing

block 69 full circle by Holly De Groot
learned a lot from this block,,
circles weren't something I had tackled before, so YouTube was my friend!

block 71 First Stitch by Kerry Green
like so many other Splendrettes cross stitch was one of my first crafts,
this one bought back lovely memories of beautiful cross stitch pictures

and my bonus for October
Pumpkin by Pat Sloan,
now anyone who knows me, knows I love pumpkins!
okay 2 more blocks are calling my name to finish...and then the books are calling me!

playing catchups

 block 67 bobbin chase by Scott Hansen
love it!
block 70 Bows by Jane Davidson
very cute little 3 1/2" blocks...
went together really quickly and turned out well
still got 3 I think to catch up on

don't know how I'm going to keep up in the next few weeks,
I've put my name down for a few swaps,
yes 5!
good grief, usually I do 2 at this time of year,
got a little carried away, so it will be head down, bum up to great these all done on time!

windy weekend

wild and windy weekend...
wind gusts of over 120km ph
lots of cleanup in the weeks to come

 each tree ripped out, root balls are huge!
YD standing next to one for size
huge job as many are tangled up like this
well at least no one was hurt or injured,
the house didn't get hit.
thinking of others that are a lot worse off!
our neighbour had a huge tree hit the back of his house,
another friend also lost the back of their house with a huge tree
symphony of chainsaws around here!
and the guys and girls that got the power back on, thank you!
