I can't believe it's been over a month since I posted. I guess I've been so busy that the time just flew on by!
Yesterday was sewing at the fire hall again. Most everyone was there, but we did miss Bonnie. She always has such neat projects to show us that she's working on. But she went to PA to spend the week sewing with Beverly, so we know she was having a good time, too. Since it was such a chilly day, Donna G's choice of menu was perfect. She was so excited the past week over "traveling tacos" that we all brought different taco fixings and she showed us how to make these "walking tacos". You take a small bag of Doritos-the nacho cheese are best-and crush them up in the bag with your hands. then add all the fixings right into the bag! You eat out of the bag with a plastic fork or spoon, while you "travel/walk" around and talk to your friends. It was really cool--and soooo good! Donna says it's her kind of meal, no dirty dishes, just toss the bag and silverware when you're done. I can't wait to try them again when we have a family gathering. Wish I'd remembered my camera so I could have shown you pictures.
With Mary's help, I finally got my Halloween quilt finished and am using it on the couch until I can get a large enough dowel to hang it with. It's a pattern I tested last summer for Jessica E. Smith of the Quilt and Needle. I couldn't wait to show it, as it has a black cat on it that brings back memories of our beloved "JD", the only black cat we've owned. He was such a sweetheart, so I'm glad to have a quilt to remember him by.
I have to put his purple bow tie and green eyes on yet, but I love this pattern!
We've been doing serious sewing at Joan's house on Wednesday's, and we had a visitor one day. Donna W's daughter, Rae, came to say hello. Donna W is back in Arizona at Rae's house, recovering from knee surgery, so it was nice to have one of her twins visit and give us an update. We so miss her stories and laughter, but we're hoping next year she'll be back for the summer again.
Until next time,
Happy Quilting and Happy Halloween from Sharon, Patsy Cline, and Johnny Cash
