This is "Falling Stars 2" and I finished up the label and binding Tuesday evening. It is going to Texas as a "thank you" to my sweet friend Doniene for the quilt top she donated for my daughter's fundraiser in August. A couple of posts ago you saw the original "Falling Stars" that Carla won in my fundraiser drawing. I sent it to Carla (who lives just a couple of hours away) by priority mail on a Tuesday and it took 6 days to get there! (Sound familiar Freda?) So when I go to town and mail this tomorrow I will definitely track it to see what adventures it might have!
Ben, is going to be The Cat in the Hat for Halloween. DD#2 had the rest of the costume under control and I offered to tackle the hat. After viewing a few online tutorials (which were all for hats larger than I needed), I was able to pull this together without too much trouble.
Tomorrow I will be attempting to create portions of my granddaughter's cat costume. We'll see how that goes. : )
I went to bed Monday night listening to the wind and rain. I love to be lulled to sleep by those sounds, and we have not had them often enough this year. But Tuesday morning when I awoke it was quiet. My first thought was, "The rain has stopped." I opened up the window and snow fell in on me. We do occasionally have snow in October, but it usually warms up during the day and all melts off. Not this time. We are under a winter storm watch until Thursday afternoon. Tree branches were down all over town and power was out in some areas. When the leaves are still on the trees and the snow is this heavy and wet it puts too much weight on the branches and they can just break right off the tree, sometimes taking power lines with them. Hopefully it won't be this cold on Halloween. The kids can't show off much of their costumes when they have to be bundled in winter coats.
Until next time,
