This week was spent doing some applique and I have added a couple more X and O blocks to the pile.
I do love how these are turning out and I wonder what color we get to play with for the month of November.... brown, pastels, white?
Head on over to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge
on Saturday morning and see what other black and grey scraps have been worked into this month.
Have you seen that Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville.com has posted the colors for the fall mystery
? Is anyone else joining in this year? I am! It will be my second mystery with her - which means that I really do need to pin, quilt and bind my Easy Street quilt in the next few weeks. The 97x97 dimensions to quilt on my little Viking machine are slowing me down from starting it, but since my deal with myself is it must be finished before I start the next mystery means I really do need to 'just do it' already!
I do know it will not get started this weekend. The kids are outside playing (I do love the cooler temps - 70's - so they are willing to go out and play!) before we head back to school this evening for the PTO trick or treating at school. Tomorrow I get to work and the kids will be at Grandma's for the day. It is the Cooter festival
in her town and she will be bringing the kids there for a bit. Sunday.... if everyone is better and no relapses with colds/fever/ stomach bugs..... I'll take the kids to SeaWorld on Sunday for a few hours for the Halloween Spooktacular
. I hope to get in to the Penguin exhibit. It was a 2 hour wait in 96 degree heat the last time we went - no way would we wait that long for it with 4 kids under the age of 7.
Next week will be busy as well - Monday night is a Math night for K+1st grades at the local Public Supermarket, Tuesday is the last Soccer game of the season, Wednesday we need to carve pumpkins and roast pumpkin seeds and Thursday is handing out candy for Trick or Treaters. Wow, that is a busy week. I think tonight after everyone is home and the kids are in bed, I'm going to curl up with a movie and finally finish the binding on the purple pineapple quilt
