I am having my morning coffee on our patio soaking up the morning in luxury of a lovely morning. It’s been such a hot summer we could not enjoy our patio for such a long time. It is almost October. I am listening to the marching band practicing on the football field less than a ¼ of a mile from us. Google images

I am reminiscing of the Octobers of the distant past. The past when my daughter would be out on the football field marching. Our school band would be dreaming of a 1in regional competition.
Bless her heart she would march for hours piping on a tenor saxophone. It’s a big bugger.
I have finished the quilt that I am making for my friend who was burned out in the central Texas forest fire. It is made of a heavily embroidered taffeta on the front and suede on the back. The quilt does not photograph well (with my photography skills) but It is beautiful. I had to tack it for it is too heavy to quilt. I should not have put the stuffing in it :^) My daughter would say batting mama.
I have finally gotten the entire give a-ways ready to mail. They will go out today except one I forgot how to get into the database so I lack one address. Wheew.

Be blessed to be a blessing

  1. Hello Sandy...did the weather turn cold where you are too? I'm glad you enjoyed your morning coffee on the patio because those kind of mornings might become more rare - at least here where it was CHILLY all weekend (not to mention the rain!). BTW, speaking of band, my 9 year old is just learning to play the saxophone in class.... he has his 2nd lesson tomorrow in fact.
    The quilt for your friend is really special - it will mean so much to her!
