My New Design Wall

This in going to be my new design wall for my quilting room. It measures 4 feet by 8 feet. It doesn't look like much now but I know its going to be so handy. It took some time to figure out where to hang it. There is lots of room in our rec room, but I really need it where I do my quilting. I will post a picture of it after it is hung, but for now I need to get my costume ready for halloween tomorrow. Have a great day.

Well I finished Maria's stocking.I did it in cross stitch and it will probably be the last one I do. My poor eyes had a difficult time with it. Hope she likes it.
Our computer was eight years old and things like the cd drive would not work so I mentioned this to my darling husband. Well next thing you know, we came home with a new one. He is so good to me. We did have windows XP but know we have Vista. So here goes the learning curve.
Should be fun. Have a great weekend.

Our Thanksgiving Weekend

We started our weekend by having dinner at our daughter Steph's home. What a great time we had. Steph prepared a great meal and it was yummo. We had lots of fun with the kids. Her husband, Bob was feeling a bit under the weather and I hope he is feeling better.

We are so thankful for our family. We miss the rest of the family but Christmas is coming and we can't wait to have them altogether. That reminds me, I still have shopping to do.

I did get some quilting done this weekend. I finished a Christmas stocking for my daughter Maria. I will post a picture on my next post. It also felt good to finish another Christmas runner. The applique is all cut out and now its just a case of machine appliquing it down. Here is a picture of one I made for my husbands brother Art and his wife Phylis.

I will leave you with one last picture. This is the evening sky at the end of the weekend. Like little polka dots. Our world is amazing!
