Certain parties mentioned that I had not posted on by blog since September 2nd.  Well, that is sort of true, but not really.  On September 7th, I attended a quilting retreat with my ConFab.  Please, click on the LINK to the left, under "My Adventures in Quilting".  That is what I have been working on as far as my blog in the month of September.  We must remember that quilting is the priority and I have completed three quilt in the month of September and mailed a fourth off to be long arm quilted out of town. I attended the Boise Basin Quilt Show, yesterday September 29th, with a quilting buddy and you all must know that such things take time.  So, what three quilts did I get finished in September? 
1) hideous pink shoo-fly baby quilt #2
2) sweet baby James Navy baby quilt
3) minature quilt of Kirsten Larsen, which can be viewed being held by her, on the "Gluten Free Doll Quilts" page attached as a link on the menu to the left.
Now, I am not posting a photo of the "Sweet Baby James Navy Baby Quilt" until after I have given it to Nicole (i.e., mother of baby James). I would not want her to get a look at it prior to the baby shower, where we want to experience the look of delight on her face.  The Cloverdale Ladies Society is in the midst of a project where we are making baby quilts to donate to the local hospital for all the new infants.  This pink shoo-fly quilt is one I am donating. I am working on a blue, yellow, red, and white four-patch rocket themed baby quilt for the next one.  As it is, I have not got my adventures in quilting trip from Tucson to St. Louis completed and posted yet. I have worked 40 hours a week, except when I took a morning off to take my mother to the doctor. I did attend a 3 hour class to learn how to use my new Husqvarna sewing machine. I did mow the acre a week ago Thursday, cleared some weeds from the ditch, trimmed some lilac bushes, and performed irrigation duties, which included get soaked, because I trimmed the lilacs after the sprinklers were on.  And I wasted a perfectly good hour waiting for AAA tow truck in front of Paul's Market last Sunday, but managed to get my Blazer started and made it home without their help. Okay. I have things to do.  TTFN!
