Hello September!

Happy Labor Day weekend! It is incredible to me that September has rolled around once more, Fall will be here before you know it and I believe most of us are ready for the change. August was a pretty busy month for me. When I last left you I was gathering my quilt models in preparation to do a Trunk Show for the Edmond Quilt Guild in Oklahoma. Phew, 2 suitcases full! My friend Brenda drove up from Oklahoma City on a Monday, spent the night and off we headed Tuesday morning for Edmond. We stopped in Stillwater Oklahoma for lunch, home of OSU. Our son attended OSU before finishing here at KU, so I was familiar with and craving some wonderful pizza from "The Hideaway"... and a wonderful pizza it was... such a treat!! As we continued on in to Edmond we stopped and shopped at 3 quilt shops. Running short on time we headed to the church where the Edmond Guild meets and prepared for their meeting. Such a wonderful guild this is, so welcoming and fun, it was an honor to share my work with them!

Wednesday morning Brenda and I drove back to Kansas City. On the way we stopped at 3 quilt shops in Wichita, Brenda made this in to a fun girls trip I'll tell you! We each added lots of fabrics and goodies to our stashes along the way. Back in KC we went to Oklahoma Joe's for some BBQ dinner. Brenda spent the night and drove back to Oklahoma City the next morning. A whirlwind trip that's for sure, thanks Brenda for showing me such a good time! 

The past few weeks have been busy with business as usual. Lots of pattern folding, as you can see here Cleo is tremendously helpful LOL! Many trips to the post office, everyone seems to be in the sewing mood now that summer is just about over. 

Labor Day weekend has been pretty quiet here on the home front... just Jerry, Cleo and I. 
Hubby has been enjoying the golf course and I intend to finish this stitchery I started on our road trips up and down I-35. Next I need to think about finishing, a pillow perhaps?

I love that halloween cat fabric, looks so fun.
I still have some I bought a few years ago, time to use it. It looks like Cleo is practicing her evil eye look, lol.
