October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
Here they come! First one down.....hundreds to go!
I finished my Cozy Cabin quilt just in time for Autumn. My favourite season. Machine pieced and quilted. I kept it simple and stitched in the ditch. A cup of hot chocolate and my Cozy Cabin quilt, kept me warm, as I worked on my hand quilting.
I've been Tagged!
Yes, I've been "tagged" by Dawni, from Itching for Stitching. Once tagged, I am to share 7 random and/or weird facts about myself, then I am to tag 7 random people and include links to their blogs.

- Best time of the day is Tea Time, when I work on my Applique.
- I dream of visiting Ireland one day.
- My comfort foods are: carrot soup, chai tea, rice pudding and bread pudding.
- I collect Teddy Bears, Tea Pots and fabric!
- Would love to learn the Quick Step. ( a ballroom dance)
- What makes me happy: quilting, gardening and books.
Well, just one more butterfly to applique, then I can piece together my Butterfly Garden quilt. It seems like I have been working on them forever, but I have only been stitching them during afternoon tea and Saturday evenings.
My Dresden Plate quilt is coming along nicely. So far, I have hand quilted three of the nine blocks. I work on this one as I watch Dancing with the Stars and Amazing Race. It's looking good and I stopped bending the needles! My Baby Ralphie (mini Dresden) has not been touched since I pieced together the first Dresden. I hope to get the rest pieced this week, so they are ready to applique, when I finish my last butterfly.
Until next week.....happy quilting!
