Kinda quiet around Allie-land, eh? On the blog at least. I'll have you know I worked every. single. day. last week. Loving it - still love my job, and I am very grateful for more hours! Cuz we all know what that means, more money to BUY FABRIC.
My friend Cathy and I went to the Sewing Expo Saturday. Even smaller than last year...we were pretty disappointed. Apparently there was a Quilter's Showcase in Birch Run [about an hour north] as well, and we're thinking of going to that next year. I did get my thimbles that I like to use, and that's about it.
And I wanted to show you what else I got last week - I ordered a saddle cross from my friend Kysa. I met Kysa on a homeschooling message board, and got to meet her in real life - she's a lovely Christian woman and very dear to my heart. Kysa LOVES horses, lives on a farm and makes tooled leather crosses for saddles - now I don't have a saddle, but I do have a work tote that I carry constantly. I wanted one for my work tote, and look what she made for me...
Isn't that GORGEOUS? Don't I just have the most talented friends????? Kysa has a shop, Too'Shay Tack, the crosses are just $10 if you'd like one too!
Let's see, what else - mum is really missing me [her chauffeur], and I miss her too....I'll have Tuesday off this week so we'll get to play. Not sure what we'll have time for after the grocery shopping, picking up prescriptions and library, but we'll try to fit in something fun.
Jenny is getting ready to release the Christmas Issue of her magazine, it is Chock Full of scrumptious projects, go see! Have you all started making things for Christmas? I've decided NOT to make anything this year. Everyone is getting Avon, lol. I've already started tucking things away. I'll make something for myself, though, since I know I'll love it and appreciate all my hard work. I'm thinking I would love to find that needlebook in Jenny's Christmas Issue in my own stocking....yes, I still fill my stocking.
I'll be working a lot more hours again this week, so you might not see me for awhile. About all I have time for lately is reading blogs, not commenting or doing my own blog, and even that not every day. Today was the first time I stitched in over a week and it was oh so nice. I don't have much to blog about, so I'll just go read yours, ok?
I'll leave you with a pic of John's pumpkin - it's supposed to be Batman with his cape. *wink*
