The weather here in Illinois has just been beautiful. I love "Indian Summer"! So, we had the whole family over and my husband made a fire and we enjoyed S'mores!!


Our backyard pit area.....

Evidence of the fun.....

We also played a word gamed Banana's, super fun, just like scrabble.

Speaking of Scrabble, I NEVER go on Facebook but a friend challenged me to a game of Scrabble on Facebook. I am having a blast! No idea about the rest of Facebook but love this game.

Time to put up Halloween and Fall decorations.

Here are a few of my quilted projects.

This is a counted cross stitch hanging, that I made at least 20+ years ago, she is old and wrinkled, just like me!!

A Fall Table-runner I leave on my kitchen table all October and November.

Leaves and pumpkins, raw edged, and just tacked together for another table-topper.

My favorite, Charlie Brown, Oh how I adore Peanuts. Warm, happy memories from my childhood.

 Good Ol' Charlie Brown!

And of course my Halloween Swap Quilt.


Oh yes, the PJ's are done and now I am taking them apart. Talk about the wrong size!! The crotch was down to his knees!!! Hard to measure a 2 1/2 year old!! I am going to try again!!

Have a wonderful day!

That is what I did before quilting!
Lined jackets, dresses, blouses, skirts, PJ's

Soooo here we have Little T...
All Mommy wanted was some jammies
Should be easy, peasy!

Here is a pattern and some fabric....

See Jane open the pattern..

See Jane try to refold the pattern and get it

You need a degree in rocket science to refold these, that I remember very well!!

Hopefully you will

See Jane show...
