Hard to believe Oct is just a few days away!!!! Where does the time go??
It is a nice cooler and rainy day today! Love it!!!! We needed the rain desperately! Of course it's no fun running from the house to the studio in the rain but then it doesn't rain enough to actually invest in a covered walkway either:)
Got a little bit of quilting done and some Election work done to.
All my Christmas gift quilting is finished so no more stress there for me! Now just customer quilting to stress me out:) haha!!!!

This is Dot's Halloween quilt. Love the cats!!!! I quilted 2 spider webs in the corners:)

The border quilting.

I have been a busy and happy quilter this week!!!!

First we have 2 t-shirts I embroidered for Miss Peyton. Her Mommy made the cute skirts:)
