Hi everybody:)
What glorious weather we have been having! No A/C all week:) Yee Haw!!!! This is unusual for us Texans! We usually go from A/C to heater all in one day:) Had a big storm come through at  2 this morning and we got 1 1/8 inches of rain:) Poor KoKo was SO scared she came to bed with me:)
This is the loudest storm we've had in awhile.
I have awesome news.... 6 mores days and the in laws will be on the road:) Not that I am excited or anything but I bet there will be some happy dancing next Sunday:) :)
Got some quilting done this week and am SO looking forward to quilting during the week instead of cramming it all in 2 days!
Not going to Houston this year... with the in laws leaving I guess I should stay here plus my BFF's can't go so I will save $ and stay home:( I will go next year for sure... come in laws or not:) haha!!!
Ok some pictures are now needed:)
This is Dolly's Thangles Buck a Block quilt.

Hi everybody!
So glad I am back to 100% and whatever my "normal" is:) ha ha! The new allergy meds are working but then it has been cool and damp so will see when the temps rise and we get dried out again. We had about 6 inches of rain this week:) WOW! And the air is off and the windows are open a bit. The temps have been in the 40's in the morning and then upper 60's to lower 70's in the afternoon. VERY unusual for usin's here in Texas! But we are lovin it!
Didn't get much quilting done during the week as the inlaws are still here. Only 13 more days and they will hit the road:) We did get the funeral plans all worked out so if something does happen we don't have to worry about that! They are 86 so we know it will happen within the next couple of years.
I did however get some sewing done:) You know a bit here and there whenever I could and I got something finished:) yea!!! Well it needs to be quilted but then who knows when that will happen:)
Ok on wit…

Hate these allergies!!!! Now that Cedar is back in the count my head is in the clouds:( In fact yesterday I was putting 2 dinner plates away and dropped them on the counter. SMASH! After I cleaned it all up I looked at my 3 week old Galaxy 4 phone and it got smashed too:( Darn! Good thing we got the insurance! should be getting a new one hopefully on Tuesday since Mon is a holiday. Needless to say I was a danger to myself and others so the reclincer and I were VERY good friends all day:)
Feeling somewhat better today but not even 80% yet so will be friends with the recliner yet another day:(
We did get almost 4 inchs of rain last night:) yea!!!! I am sure the barometric pressure added to my brain instability!

Ok so I did get something quilted last weekend:

This is Pat's King size quilt:) She is givng it to her son for Christmas.
I used the Longhorn, Texas, Cowboy Hat panto on it.
Looks really good:)
I bought some fabric therapy and it came in this week:) The barcelona was from Ets…

October... what the heck???? Halloween, Thanksgiving and then Christmas is just around the corner! Better get busy:)

Was pretty warm here until about 11 yesterday when a glorious cold front blew in:) yea!!!! 50's this morning and only upper 70's for the high:) The house and studio are open and the allergens are coming in but also all the wonderful fresh air!!!! Yippee!!!!! Love this weather!!!!

The in laws had a really nice 65th anniversary day on Tues. My SIL came and stayed until Friday so I was on furlough for a few days:) yea for me!!! I got quite  a bit done in the studio and got caught up on my errands:) Then back to the regular scheduled program:( They are making plans to go back to Florida after the 23rd... he has blood work scheduled that day. I don't think they are really able to make the trip back but they are grownups with their own minds:) My SIL will be driving them back and then staying for a bit.

Ok so lots of pictures:)
First up is Dolly's Batik Star:)…
