Okay so enough gushing, already. There's some news on the quilting front: Amanda Jean Nyberg, who we all know and love as one of the authors of Sunday Morning Quilts, has a new book coming out in February. It's titled No Scrap Left Behind, which is a play on the No Child Left Behind legislation, so it's pretty funny for those of us who are teachers. Anyway, I just thought I'd share the exciting news. You should visit Amanda Jean's blog, Crazy Mom Quilts, and see for yourself what it's all about.
And now on to Pin It Weekly: I've been too busy with school (I think I say that every week...) but I did manage to get a little pinning in over the weekend. For one, I put a few more of my quilts up on my "TRUNK, SHOW" board. It occurred to me somehow that I hadn't added any of the more recent quilts.
That done, I pinned all manner of random stuff: from upholstery, to chickens, to baby lambs--aren't they just too cute?
Fall is definitely here and it's beginning to show in the leaves, the pumpkins, the Halloween decor....they are all out in full force.
Look at this little gray darling playing in the fall leaves. Our son rescued two kittens a few months ago and brought them to our house, "so all the grands can enjoy them." They are thriving and growing, and Richard and I have become attached. One looks very much like the kitten in this picture.
The other is yellowish with odd coloring on her ears, feet and tail. The poor thing was so ugly when we first got her that I named her Gizmo (from the Gremlins movie), but worm meds, food, and love made all the difference. Now that she's grown into her ears, she's just the cutest of kittens.
Everyone here in Louisiana is hoping, praying, for cooler weather. Here's hoping that your weather is cooling off or warming up, depending on what you need. And I suppose, that could mean some of you are seeing the beginning of spring or are experiencing perfect weather!
