My falling was catching a major cold from my hubby last week -- I had a cold a couple weeks ago, but mild. This last one knocked me out from last Friday and I am still fighting it! Yesterday was the first day I could get off the couch ... Lucky for me I didn't have a lot going on!
I had the pleasure of longarming this adorable quilt a couple weeks ago!
This was one of my favorite shirts ... We have a beagle in our house, and this is perfect for describing him!

If I could just make time go slower right now, I surely would! I love this season and time of year ... I guess October is my favorite month ... I never thought of it that way but here's why: it's my birthday month, it's fall, it's weeks ahead of the time of year where I feel crazed from too much to do!! Fall to me means apple cider, turning leaves, a chill in the air ... Except when you live in Southern California and it has been in the 90's for the last week. I am sick of the heat ... Bring me some snow!!! Ok ... I'll take rain instead ... I'm about ready to figure out how to do a rain dance!! I can feel wrinkles sprouting on my face from lack of moisture in the air!!
I have been busy busy ... Finished the quilting and binding of a quilt I started years ago. It is a Donna Yackey pattern and the Thursday girls at the Country Loft will surely remember it!
I love it and have decided to teach it in my October stash class, Friday, Oct. 30 from 10 to 1. I requested permission from my dear friend to teach it! She is a doll!!
Been longarming as well ... Here is a beautiful quilt that I worked on last week

I am slowly getting my quilting business organized. I thought a couple of weeks ago that here it is almost October ... If you're a quilter, you are thinking that your Christmas quilts or ones you want finished by the end of the year need to get to your longarm quilter! I didn't have any new quilts for a while, but over the last couple weeks I have had at least 8 come in ... That's a lot for me. I realized I better get myself organized and stick to a schedule!!
I quilted a 108" x 108" quilt last week. It took me 4 days because I would only work on it about 2 or 3 hours a day. Longarm quilting puts you in a position where you are always leaning over the quilt. I quilt from the front of the frame, so I lean over the quilt and tend to have poor posture, because I am leaning down to see where I am quilting and making sure it looks beautiful!
The quilt is a great pattern for a fairly fast quilt ... An alternating solid block with a four patch ...
