I'm not sure where the year is going, but is sure is getting there fast!!

Next weekend is Conference weekend so we will be staying home and enjoying the messages from our Prophet and other leaders of our church. I enjoy these weekends so much and there is always a message there just for me......

I will have to work 4 days this next week. We are having a substitute MD on Friday and my doc wants me to be the one to work it. I don't mind working that office, but it sure is going to be interesting because we will have a chemical patch test to read that day. What is a chemical patch test, you ask? Well it is where I place 29 different chemicals in 'wells' on 3 separate pieces of wide tape and place them on a person's back. The person leaves them on for 24 hours when we remove them and see if there is a reaction on the skin. My job covers so many different types of allergies that it is hard for me to keep up with things. There sure isn't a dull moment that's for sure!

Not much quilting going on right now. I don't even have anything that I want to get started on. I need to start a quilt for Miss Mira, but I just haven't a clue what I want to do. I have some printed blocks, but of course they aren't square. I'm not sure what I want to do with them, but I'm sure I'll figure something out. The only other thing I have finished is Kaye Wood's 'Kaleidoscope' pattern  that I want to teach. Instead of doing the lap sized quilt I made a table runner and 4 place mats. I had enough triangles cut out to make 3 more blocks and I decided I'd do a different style of table runner for show & tell. I am slowly but surely getting items made up to be able to show what other patterns can be made with the ruler I am teaching. I have another pattern I want to work on, but I'm not sure what fabrics I want to use. I will just have to sort through what I have then go from there.

Well, I am off. I sure hope everyone has a great week!

Happy Quilting,

Can you believe it? Snow in Arizona!! Yes, I said SNOW! We were watching TV last Sunday night when the thunder and lightning started then we heard this weird noise on the roof. This is the results of that 'weird' noise!

This one is out the front door with Carl's footprint in it.

This one is of the front yard just in front of the footprint.

This is one out our back Arcadia sliding glass doors.

This one is also the back yard, but out further and showing the oranges on the ground under the orange tree. Carl was trying to protect the camera from getting wet. After the white stuff fell, it started raining. I tried getting a picture of the neighbors yards, but my flash just didn't reach that far.... Within a week our temps were back up and it turned into the usual Arizona winter weather just the way I like it.

Not much else going on around here. I have been able to get some sewing done. This past couple of weeks I have been working on an embroidery project. I'm not sure how well the first one will turn out, but if it works out okay I am going to make a few more for Christmas presents. So shhhhh, don't tell the grand-kids.....

I am on the calendar at Sally's Fabrics in Mesa to teach quilting classes once a month. I'm trying to get some more ideas going and work up the samples so that I can have several different classes going. I have one sewn together, I just need to get the label on it. Labels are such a pain and I always put them off to the last minute.

Well, husband just asked me to breakfast so I must get cleaned up. Have a great day everyone!

Happy Quilting,
