Getting Back In The Groove

The 1st part of October was a busy month for me. Decorating for Fall, preparing for company and my turn to host Bunco at my home. Wednesday was super hectic, a day in the kitchen preparing my Bunco goodies, we girls love to eat! And..... our dear friends of 30 plus years were flying in from Buffalo that same evening! My excitement level was very high!

Our friends arrived safe and sound, here we are off gallivanting, this picture shows a portion of Kansas City in the background on a beautiful sunny day! The weather could not have been more perfect during their visit, blue skies and high 70s.

Our friends came bearing gifts, little bits of Buffalo we crave and still miss, a Bocce pizza,

SPONGE CANDY for Barbie Jo :)

Webers mustard and Canadian jam for Jerrys toast, how sweet is that!

We spent our days together cramming in a little bit of everything. Golf for the boys, a little shopping, some lovely dinners out.
We visited the Kemper Museum Of Modern Art and the National WW1 Museum in KC. This museum is a must see, beautifully done inside and out.

And now our friends have come and gone, we sure are going to miss them! It's time to get back in the groove for me. I finished writing the pattern for this lovely table runner which will be available on my web site this weekend. Brenda added her special quilting touches to my runner, you may be able to see them by clicking on the picture. Little loopy loos inside the jumbo rick rack, wavy lines inside the bells flow with their movement, I am always excited by the lovely way she finishes my projects. This pretty runner is fast to make, simple piecing and applique, rick rack and button embellishments, it looks beautiful on my antique sideboard. A nice gift, the Christmas countdown is on!

I will be at the computer most of this week writing up the directions for runner #2, pictures to come soon! Runner #3 is now in Brendas hands for quilting, I can't wait to see what she does to this one :)
