Well, you know you're in trouble when your husband comes home from work and says "Do you know you haven't updated your blog since October 2?"  Of course I know that.  But there are so many other things that I need to do that I just haven't found the time to sit at the computer and do any updating of any kind!  So tonight's the night.................

October has been an extremely busy month......lots and lots of classes, very full and very fun classes........the barn sale stuck in the middle of the month, all the preparation and time for the barn oldest son's birthday..........a trip to the farm.............more get my drift.  And all wonderful things.
Today was wool dying day.  I needed some more wool to trump up my stash for Saturday's class.  Luckily I had today off so I could spend 7 hours at my kitchen stove dying wool.  The wool is beautiful, I would love to have gotten more done and my feet hurt!!  The feet won and I finally had to put away the pots. 
There is a mini craft show in my dining room of some of my things left over from the barn sale.......ladies are shopping when they come to classes.........come shop with me!!!
My friend Kim quilted this basket quilt for me but I had not had time to get the binding stitched down because of the barn is now done and hanging.  YAY! 
Kim also quilted this huge queen size log cabin quilt which also needed the binding stitched down.  I will hopefully have it finished TONIGHT!!!  And on the bed in the morning!!!  YAY! 
I also finished this little foundation (9 blocks) piece yesterday.  YAY! 
And on Monday I finished my spider web quilt from a class I took in September.  YAY!!!  We'll see this again someday since it hasn't been quilted yet. 
My oldest son Paul, celebrating his 34th birthday with his sweet family. 
Models for upcoming November and December classes.  All make and takes!!!  YAY!
The girls at Hillridge Farms and their huge pumpkins.  This is our third year to visit the farm and the girls still love it.  They chose Hillridge Farms over the fair (they had already been to the fair once to see Scotty). 

Making fall fabric covered boxes and pincushions 
Working on fall mats 
Barbara looks very studious as she works on her wool pieces 
Tricia has a bullseye behind her head!! 
Debby finally finished her four block wool crazy.  You have to see this in person to appreciate it.  It is absolutely magnificent.  So many of the appliques in the blocks represent her and her husband's family history. 
Laura seems very intent.  And Laura is also the proud owner of her very own long arm machine.  Get those quilts ready ladies. 
I think this was a recipe card class. 
Donna proudly holds up a couple of projects she has finished.  Those Busy Bee girls are going gung ho getting their projects done!! 
Laura quilted this beautiful piece for Jeannie.  Nice work Jeannie and Laura.  What a beautiful wallhanging. 
Donna got her flower garden quilt done and Laura quilted it for her.  It is another piece that you have to see in person to appreciate.  Donna is going to have so many badges for all her completed projects!!

So, as you can see, life has been busy around here this month.  There are other pictures on a different camera that I just remembered.  Don't want to overload you all at one time!! 

I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful fall season and definitely finding some time to do a little stitching.
