October was a busy month and it's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just around the corner! About a month ago, Greg and I went on vacation to the Smokies. It rained EVERY day but one but we made the best of it and had a good time. Our vacations these days are about disconnecting from the world and spending quality time together. Mission accomplished. If you've never been to the Great Smokey Mountain National Park, it's truly delightful and you need to put it on your list! We saw chipmunks, deer, turkeys and even a black bear in the park. Just the recharge we needed!
I've not been sewing much but this weekend I managed to get a couple of applique blocks done for a quilt that almost has all the blocks done. I also clipped threads and ironed another quilt for the quilter. That part wasn't fun but I did rather enjoy the time I spent in the sewing room today. It felt rather good. Even the cleanup I started with felt good.
Now to the giveaway part! I've realized I probably won't be using this cute journal from Aneela Hooey. The first half of this is blank paper and the second half graph paper. Perfect for notes and sketches. If you're interested, leave your name (plus email address if your profile doesn't have it) and I'll pull a name this upcoming weekend. Thank you all for sticking with me. I know I'm not blogging that much and while I'm not quitting, posts will continue to be infrequent. I do still read your blogs and enjoy learning from you and seeing what you're doing! You all are so inspiring!
