I’ve told you that I read lots of blogs – right!? I love to visit the bloggers that visit here especially :) it’s so fun to have a social life like this! Otherwise I would be really, really isolated. I always comment, especially when I see a giveaway and . . .
I won Kristina’s giveaway and got this: in the mail today! It’s her recent collection of scraps, but there a few fat quarters in there too, maybe even a 1/2 yd cut or two. I know, I’ve been SOOO lucky lately! Everyday I check the mail with much anticipation :) There’s so many different, beautiful fabrics in the mix, that I have yet to purchase. Garden party, Pop Garden, Charisma and so many more.

I hope that you had a great weekend! We were forced to slow down a bit with frigid temperatures and a couple of stuffy noses, bit I like that pace. I finished up my custom bracelet order (I will ask Mendy, if I can show pictures), and almost completed the roman shade for my friend.

I was tagged last week by Summer, and have been a bit remiss in posting – oops! I always love reading the random meme’s about others so figured I better play along.
Oh, and it started snowing about an hour ago! It won’t stay, but it is still crazy to see snow on the trees with leaves :)1 ~ I greatly dislike feet. Especially bare feet touching my bare feet.
2 ~ I’ve been feeling extra domestic lately. Planning menu’s and whatnot – it seems that fall is here!
3 ~ I really need to recover my ironing board.
4 ~ I enjoy flavored creamers in my coffee – usually fat free.
5 ~ TV I like : Project Runway, Top Design, 30 Rock, The Office, The Amazing Race, The Locator, What Not To Wear, ‘Til Death.

Well just a little :) Fat Quarter Shop has Christmas fabrics on sale, and I have been wanting to make a new tree skirt for a couple of years. So I just did it! :) I drafted it out already, I just need to get a few other projects off my list before I start. I also bought a panel to make a table runner, such a fun and quick project, but I’m going to cheat! I’m being realistic – the weeks keep flying by around here. In other news: I spent an hour or so, ripping out the quilting I had done on my corduroy project. I wasn’t happy with the quality of quilting my machine was producing. :( After having my thoughts confirmed by Amanda Jean, I’ve … Read More »
Our local grocery takes ripe/bruised bananas and marks them way down. All 4 of my kids love bananas, so getting home with a bunch of bananas can be challenging, many times I’m left with 1, especially when we are walking. And so I have a hard time passing these up!I usually feed them a few and then make banana bread with the rest. I stocked up big time :) I’ve been a little unhappy with one recipe and decided to try the stand-by that I grew up with – it was better than I remembered. The crust is just the right golden color, and crunchy, while the inside is moist and delish.I thought I would share the recipe – I love how simple it is, and on the low-fat side :)

It has been so beautiful here! I had to share pictures of the changing leaves – here’s a big dose of fall for those of you living without “seasons” :) This is by far my favorite time of the year, when I can hear the leaves crushing under my feet. I will go out of my way to crunch a few more! What is your favorite fall activity?
Our weekend was very, very wet. But I love the aftermath! Beautiful snow capped mountains. The valley we live in is surrounded by amazing peaks, this is the most photographed for it’s jagged edges. The best part is – I can see it from my kitchen! All winter long I watch the storms come in and out of the valley based on these mountains. … Read More »

Quilting on corduroy has been fun! Really, I’m just getting started, but it feels nice :)
What are you up to?
I realized last night that at the end of my Random post yesterday I said “Happy Tuesday” – lol! It seems the week is getting away from me. Maybe I need to keep the calendar a bit closer :)
I hope you are having a great week, honestly I’m glad that it is going fast! The last couple of weeks were really long. Blessings ~Amy
More like Cheez-it Monster! Owen loves these crackers and found a way to help himself. I walked into the kitchen (after leaving for 2 minutes) and laughed, then ran for the camera :)
He’s trying to clean up his mess – isn’t that sweet!? Many times I feel that our home is quite small, but I am thankful to always have an eye or ear on what may be happening with the little ones.
Happy October! It is feeling more and more fallish around here :) Usually by the end of the month we have had at least one decent snow storm – not sure we are ready for it, but winter will be here before fall is officially over!
I have been a bit cryptic the last week (maybe you didn’t notice?). The reason being : my mom had a serious breast cancer scare. Thankfully her biopsy results came back yesterday without cancer! Prior to the biopsy her Dr was 99.9% sure it was a rare and aggressive form of cancer, needless to say, this has been a huge concern for our family. She has had very good care, and will continue to be watched closely for the next few months, as this cancer is easily … Read More »
