Day 31 of NaBloPoMo challenge!

Today is the last day of this challenge. I'm not sure how I stack up against the other NaBloPoMo bloggers that signed up, but I have shared more of my thoughts and happenings this month than other months. 

I didn't say 'Happy Birthday' to my aunt Jenny (the 25th) or my sister Loretta (the 30th). So here is both of your 'Happy Birthday' from me, LOL!

One thing that I have finished is my 'Blue and White Spin' quilt. I think it turned out great! Now onto my next project!

Thanks NaBloPoMo for the challenge! Let's hope that I can keep up the momentum!

Until next time,

Day 27 of NaBloPoMo challenge!

Good evening! 

Today I put the quilt on the frame and of course my second pass the tension was off. It is really quick to stitch across but forever to 'unstitch'. I shall finish it tomorrow I hope.

Here are a few of the sites we have seen during our walks. 

Here are future suppers :)

Check out this tree. Not sure why it grew this way.

Many of the trees have a vine growing up and around them. This one looked like it was a vein all the way up the trunk.

What natural sites to you enjoy each day?

The question of the day is:
Do you enjoy being scared such as watching horror movies or reading scary books?

My answer to this is that I don't read or watch horror movies. I'd much rather watch a western (Sam Elliott, yum...), action (Harrison Ford), and sci-fi (The Mummy and Star Wars). I don't like Stephen King books, the Saw or Halloween movies, but I don't mind haunted houses.

How about you, do you like horror movies or scary books?

Day 26 of NaBloPoMo challenge!

Good evening all!
As usual I am behind on my posting. Yesterday Carl, Ella and I went to Beech Lodge #240 in Hendersonville to a craft fair. It was a long day with little return. At least I got a lot of tips and ideas while we were there yesterday. Next step is to make a list on what to get somethings done.

1. Find a lab to get Carl's lab work done
2. Quilt the quilt that is on the design wall
3. Take a couple quilts to the store in White House for consignment
4. Work on potholders
5. Get online to new site 

I think that's a good start. 

What is on your agenda for the week?

Day 22 of NaBloPoMo challenge!

Today we walked on another part of the walkway that White House has made through town. It is a very pretty walk and a lot of people use it. No fear of tripping and they have different trees marked along the path. I'm not sure which section we will check out tomorrow.

The question of the day is yesterday:
Orange is a colour that people either hate or love: tell us how you feel about it.

Answer: My favorite colors while I was a teen was yellow, brown and orange! Just about everything except clothes was one of these colors. I didn't look good in those colors at all. I remember one of the dresses that my mother made me was brown with orange and white flowers. I shall have to look for it. I may have a piece of that fabric in my stash somewhere. I was very lucky that my mother was a great seamstress because I sure would not have had the fantastic wardrobe that she provided without that talent. I think I was the best dressed kid in school thanks to her.

How about you, did you like the color orange?

Until next time,

Day 21 of NaBloPoMo challenge!

 Whoops.... I missed a few days. The past couple days have just flown by for me. Today wasn't any different as I almost forgot to get on here and bug everybody again....

Our rain date for the craft fair was this past Sunday and we did okay. What surprised me was that there was only 2 crafters, myself and Scents by Suzi. Suzi was at most of the same farmer's market days with us also. We shall see if we set up next year at this show. Our next show is at Beech Lodge #240 at 3198 Long Hollow Pike in Hendersonville, TN this Saturday. Yikes, it is from 8 am till 4 pm. Long day..... They are also having a pancake breakfast! Yum!

Today Carl and I started walking again. There is a trail through town that is a nice easy walk so we went there. We would walk along the road, but there are no shoulders on the roads here in Tennessee. Then we came home and I started working on some more craft fair projects. I have been trying to think of new things I can add to my inventory that are easy. So I dug out my fall and Christmas fabrics and am making potholders. I gave a couple to Julie so that she can heat and wash test them for me. I want to make sure that they don't fall apart in the first wash. The other thing I accomplished today (besides my writing here) is helping a grand-daughter with her homework. I can't believe the amount of homework these kids have now. It just amazes me!

Well, I am off to hit the hay. I am pooped!

Until next time,

Day 18 of NaBloPoMo challenge!

Happy Saturday! Not much going on around here today. We did go looking for a new secondhand store in Hendersonville. We actually managed to find it with the directions I was given several weeks ago. Of course we didn't get there before it closed for the day, but at least we know where to go now. Carl & I love visiting secondhand stores, estate sale and garage sales. We usually find things that we can use for a fraction of the retail cost. We use to have a regular route and stores we visited when we were looking for things when in Arizona. The estate sales aren't very good around here, but we shall keep looking. 

We have been seeing the advertisements for holiday movies and Carl wants to see 'The Bishop's Wife'. We can get it on Amazon free so that is what we shall be doing next. So I am off until tomorrow.

Until next time,

Day 17 of NaBloPoMo challenge!

Another October birthday today.... Happy Birthday, Jodi! Sure hope you have a great day!

Today was the day I took more pictures of my items to download them into my online shops. I have been posting to VarageSale as well as ArtFire. There are multiple areas that are on VarageSale and it is like an online garage sale. It is like CraigsList, but much, much better. In my area it is only females that can join and this is mostly for safety. We meet in a public place to buy/sell what we have posted. It is amazing when we are all meeting in the local Target parking lot. I also updated my ArtFire site. Then this weekend I will be at Pumpkin Festival at The Streets of Indian Lakes

The question of the day from NaBloPoMo is, When was the last time you went to a campfire/bonfire? 

Answer: It has been so long ago I can't even remember.... I went to camp when I was kid and that was probably the last time for me. 
How about you?

Until next time,
