Weekend Rambles

 I did a lot of nothing this weekend, at least quilt related.
Hubby and I did plant many pumpkin seedlings all over the yard. But that was about it.

Then I found this neat AP (colorsnap) from Sherwin-Williams and used a bunch of my pictures to make paint chips. It's really fun! I spent several hours repainting my house, in my mind. Of course I also added new furniture and bigger windows. It was exhausting!
 I did sew down just a few leaves to my B-side. Bet you didn't know I had a B-side, hahaha
Then I was really, really bad. I coveted a quilt. So much that I had to contact the maker and beg to be part of her quilt-along. I'll tell you more about this when I receive my patterns. Then we'll see how good you are at resisting this fantastic quilt. Really it is fantastic, I promise.

Then I was bad and cut out a new quilt. My excuse, I need it by Halloween. As much as I like Christmas, I love Halloween. So much that I need to have as many Halloween quilts as the average person has Christmas decorations.
But I'm making myself savour the time spent with this Halloween quilt and I will only work on it as a reward. At least that's my plan. But I've been known to talk myself out of being good.

Take care, Brandie

I have no Halloween quilts at all. I guess I better get busy now that I have a grandchild!
