I love this time of year. I get to see all of the beautiful trees with their leaves changing to the most awesome colors. Some are putting up or had put up christmas tree's and I am finding myself smiling and overcome with joy.
We are still doing our living room make over! Trying the DIY method is very time consuming especially when you are rookies at just about everything. I think this might be the first year without a christmas tree and decorations (especially, if we keep up at the pace we are going!) I am sad about this, but we do not want to rush and make a mess of what we trying to accomplish.
Our Thanksgiving was wonderful, I cooked for my family, ate and slept the rest of the day away! I haven't done that in so long, they thought I was sick...I had been sleep deprived (all thanks go out to Tyler, our dog!) He is old, partially blind and deaf and extremely cranky! He wants what he wants when he wants it and not a moment to soon or to late or he will make you pay. My family is starting to hate him! I know hate is a strong word, but it beats the alternative, ready to kill him! Pray for us!
I am working on a quilt that I saw on crazymomquilt blog, stacked coins baby quilt. I am sooo excited. I get to sew on my brand new Janome MC6600P, her name is Nome! I had the Horizon in mind and was making payments toward it, but I had to go this weekend and break the news to my dealer, that I can't afford the Horizon at this time. We are in the process of adopting and we must prepare for the child's(ren) bedroom and for their necessities. Continuing to make payments on my Horizon will conflict with what I want to do for our new baby(ies)!
I will be taking pics soon to share!
Until then, have a quiltabulous day!
