Time flies!

Is it possible that October is over? It can't just can't have been a whole month...there's no way tomorrow is November...I'm just not ready...

Can you tell I'm a little behind! I have these grand ideas and expectations at the beginning of the month, and then somehow the month seems to slip away from me, and here I am again. It's the end of the month, and I didn't come even close to doing/finishing everything that I wanted to!

The good news is that my October Schnibble is done! It's the Cindy Lou Who pattern by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co done in The Caroler fabric by Mary Engelbreit! Now, with any luck, it will be quilted and hung up before Christmas (there I go with those big ideas again!)!

I knew the Halloween treat bags for the kids would be ready...and I was actually right about that! There's something about those very subtle reminders that help get things going!

Here's Ryan with his bag! I think it's almost bigger than him!

Here's Miss Anna with hers!

Just think of all the candy they can fit into those bags! Yikes! Why didn't I make them smaller?

Anyway, I'm afraid that's all I've got to report for this month! Even with the snow delay my Gobble Gobble quilt is not completed! I did get some work done on it, and I'm hoping to finish by Tuesday when I meet up with my quilter friend! We'll see what happens!

Here's the stack of blocks just waiting to be sewn together!

See you all in November!


  1. Love your Schnibbles! I use Christmas fabric too, when I made mine.

  2. Great finish.. I always say it is not the quantity but the quality. I agree that Ocotber flew by... I just realized it is time to make the fruit cakes..

  3. Smaller candy bags??? Bite your tongue! :)

    I love Cindy Lou but I really love the pictures of your two little trick-or-treaters and their not-nearly-big-enough candy bags. I hope Miss Anna and Ryan had a terrific time and came home with bags stuffed full! :)

  4. Hey lady, I'm blog stocking you(just kidding). Becky told me about your blog and said I should take a look at your awesome quilts. Your amazing! I tried quilting a few years ago and hated it. I didn't have the skills or patients. Great job on your race-you were born to run. I hope your knees recover.

  5. Your Cindy Lou Who quilt looks great!!! I love it.
