Pumpkins and quilt making


I love pumpkins, I love seeing them in trailer loads, lined up on people's porches, mantles, wherever they choose to display them as well as pumpkin roll, pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, if it's orange and looks like a pumpkin, then I just tend to drool and drool over it.
Don't you just love this time of the year? Cool night, cool mornings, the days aren't as hot, the air has a calmness about it that summer doesn't have, leaves are taking on a different color, mums everywhere, it is just a great time of the year.
I started yesterday on one of those Eleanor Burns quilt in a day projects. I know I haven't gotten to sit and work at it non stop, but I don't think I could complete one of these in a day. However, I will be very glad if I can complete this quilt in a week.
I made a specialty quilt, or at least that is what I would call it, of deers. Well, I invested way too much money into it to be able to recover my costs selling it at a craft show but I did manage to sell it Saturday at the Franklin Craft Show. I was so glad to see that quilt go, believe me, that one quilt had more blessings said over it than any other than I have made.
I told the lady who bought it she was certainly getting one of a kind there, because I would not ever make another one. It was made in the crazy quilt design and I was just about crazy when I finished it. I certainly hope her husband enjoys it because it had a lot of hours invested in it.
The morning found me cutting out potholders for the show we are doing this weekend, so if I can get all of those made and this "quilt in a day" I will have a full week invested as well as keeping the two grandbabies four days. I need an energy pill.
Oh, but the good news of the day, the new season of NCIS begins tonight.....doing a happy dance.
