Something New

Thank you all for your well wishes about yesterdays post. Life is difficult enough without the thought of something happening to our children. Car accident happen so fast and can cause so much damage. I will forever be Thankful that this accident was minor. And the sad thing is that this is not an isolated incident. Many of us have gone through the same thing lately.
They say things happen is 3's. I'm hoping that the quota is filled for us all!

On the quilting front, I have been madly finishing up that "Brown Bag Challenge". As the head of the project, I would feel ridiculous not having my own quilt done. Especially when I started so early and then got side tracked on something else. Tomorrow is or mini show at our regular meeting. We are going to hang all the quilts that come back and have the viewers choose several winners. It has been a fun experience and I hope everyone else had fun too. I'll try to remember to take pics to show you all on Friday morning.
I did break down and I started something new. But it was a small something, so I don't feel too bad. I needed something to do to calm my nerves and this foot the bill.
Over a the http://therabbitfactory.blogspot.com/2010/10/our-new-free-pattern-series.html. It was a free download and a quick finish. They are doing a four mouth quilt starting in November and finishing in February. I looked this morning, but they don't seem to have block 2 up yet, so keep checking.
I'm also debating about Christmas decorating. I love to see everyone's displays but I'm in a ho-hum mood. With all that has been happening in this household, Christmas will be very low keyed. Then I remind myself the Christmas is not about gifts, it's about family and friends. So we will be going back to old-fashion ways and make all our gifts. And you know me, that will involve a lot of sugar, flour and love!
Wishing you all a Wonderful Wednesday!
Take care, Brandie
