bad cold

I have about 10 things I need to be doing, and here I sit feeling like crap. I have a horrible cold and just want to sit here and not move. I can`t breathe, and my body aches all over. I need to finish up the hand work on my mini quilt, and I need to finish up my ATCs to mail out all by the end of the week. And at work, this weekend is Family weekend at the university, so we will be crazy. Guess I just need hot tea and rest tonight, then dig in tomorrow. That is the plan anyway. lol

Halloween mini

I am doing mini quilt swaps on HGTV. This time it was Fall or Halloween themed. I was so lucky in that my partner loved Halloween, which is my favorite holiday. What I am trying to get out of this swap is doing something different and new to me. So this was a first in ragging edges to me. I loved how it turned out and hope Julie likes it.

my gnome riding his Harley

I finally got my camera cord and am back up and running!
So first of all, here is the cool hand carved gnome riding his Harley, that Tom of Quilting and Carving blog made me.
He asked for suggestions for a Christmas giveaway that would combine his love of carving and quilting. I thought a mini quilt set in a hand carved frame with a gnome on it would be great, AND so did he. So I won this gift from him.
