What a difference a day makes

Yesterday was lovely and sunny. A perfect golden fall day. Today...not so much! The skies are overcast

The water is a little rougher, it has been misting off and off through the afternoon. I am limping around because I stubbed my toe. I am pretty sure it is broken, but it really doesn't warrant a trip to hospital because they do nothing for a broken toe other than tape it, so I will tape it and be about my business, packing up. One load has gone home and I am gathering up more "STUFF" to pack in the next load...why in the world do we need so much STUFF anyway!
Oh dear, I think I am sounding a bit "Eeyore-ish" today...I really must do something about that!

On a brighter note, I have finished piecing my Victorias Quilt top.

I think it is looking a little wobbly around the edges and it is entirely my fault. I don't know what I was thinking when I put on the outer border. I always take a measurement across both ends and the middle and figure the average and cut my border accordingly, easing where needed. Last night while sewing and watching a movie, I pieced the borders, sewed them on, then trimmed the ends...I mean, Really! Get with it Wendy! This is not your first quilt! ( oh dear, there I go again, sounding "grumbly")
It really is not the end of the world, I will get out my trusty ripper and fix that this evening.
I can't believe I forgot to tell you this...I received a lovely little squishy envelope in last weeks mail. Just look what fell out of the envelope!

Well, the pumpkin wasn't in the envelope, I added that for effect. ?(but you already knew that I bet, )

My name was chosen on Sinta's blog last month after the Schnibbes parade, to receive TWO charm packs! Courtesy of Donna Henning at Bear Paw Quilts. Thank you Donna! Just in time to put a little bag together for my grand daughters for trick or treating.

Well, break is over I really must get back to packing my stuff...see you at home!

"Good morning, Pooh Bear," said Eeyore gloomily. "If it is a good morning," he said. "Which I doubt," said he.
"Why, what's the matter?"
"Nothing, Pooh Bear, nothing. We can't all, and some of us don't. That's all there is to it."
"Can't all what?" said Pooh, rubbing his nose.
"Gaiety. Song-and-dance. Here we go round the mulberry bush."

Well, we'll be happy to see you anyway. Hope that eases some of your sadness in leaving!
That was a fast quilt even with the ripping.
What size do the Victoria quilts need to be?

Oh Wendy, so sorry to hear about your "ouchie"...

I know that you are reluctant to leave Winterpast, but it will be nice to have you back at home... once I get back!

See you at the retreat.
