Day 5 and 6 of Sandy's fall vacation.

Had my follow-up Dr's appointment from my sleep study.  I have acute obstructive apnea and acute restless leg syndrome, which was a complete surprise.  So, here is my new best friend.

I woke up this morning with two big red splotches on my checks.  I may have had it a bit too snug!  I will make some adjustments tonight.

I finished another fall quilt yesterday afternoon and will get it quilted and bound today.  Only today and tomorrow left for my vacation.  BUT, I only work Thursday and have my regular 3 day week-end.

I have already visited Sandy from Pieces from my Heart on day 2 of the "Fall O Ween" blog hop : and have printed her darling "Pumpkin Spice" pattern.  Stop by when you get the chance!

Off to breakfast with the ladies!

Just got home--had my oil changed and tires rotated!  I have completed all of my goals for the CGQC!
Day 4 Sandy's Fall Vacation

Got up Sunday morning and played 18 holes of golf.  On #16, one of my fellow playing companions threw a hissy fit because someone was talking in his back swing!  Pretty much ended the round!

 Got home about noon and made a potatoe salad for supper. Then, went downstairs and finished quilting my Kim Diehl quilt.  I quilted a grid on each of the plaid patches and quilted little circles in the four corners.  I also added some flowers to the borders.

Vacation Day 2 and 3

Okay, my Friday did not go as planned.  I had a long list of things to do.  But...
I slept again until 7 am; had coffee, loaded a quilt on the quilter and went to get my hair cut.

I also, shhhh, had a job interview that I think went quite well.  And my day was done.  I came home, fixed supper and vegetated in my chair.

Today, I played golf, stopped at the fabric store on my way home and then downstairs to quilt.  I quilted "Missy's Fall Garden Quilt" by Jamie with L'Fair Quilts.  It was featured on the "Moda Bake Shop" site a few weeks ago.  However, I used "Mill House Inn" instead of fall fabrics.

I did not get myKim Diehl finished but it is still on the quilter.  It is half finished.

I came upstairs and put a roast in the oven and am now dinking around in my study, watching college football!

Day 1

Slept in until 7 am, normally I am up at 4 am.
Made coffee, showered and took a trip through blogland.
Left the house and had a pedicure--my toenails are orange--Happy Fall/Halloween!
Did some shopping.
Got my Kim Diehl quilt on the quilting frame and have sewn the borders on another quilt.

I am fixing pork chops and a cabbage/pasta dish for supper and will have time to sew the binding on after supper, before bedtime!

Love to all!

I am getting ready for my fall vacation.  I normally take time off when my sister comes to visit.  But this year, I screwed up and took the wrong week off!  I did quilt three projects for her while she was here, so my time off is my own.  I can hardly wait until 4:30 pm tomorrow, Sept 22!

I have finished my Kim Diehl quilt but it needs to be quilted.  In fact, I have three of my own that need quilting.  I also want to make some more Halloween table toppers and such. 

I also have a follow up appointment with the doctor--I flunked both of my sleep tests, so will see what the next step is.  I would really, really like to sleep through the night.  (Sounds like 41 years ago when I wished that my son would sleep through the night!!).

Lunch is over, so its back to work (for one more day!!)
I just read about a new blog hop.  I have participated in the hop previously and have had a lot of fun.  You will visit 10 designers in 10 days and have 10 new projects.  Have Fun!

I am ready for the big fall reveal!!!  The first picture is my "Halloween" Table Topper and the second pic is my fall table topper, using, what was that, Yes, the disappearing nine patch!  I also made cookies and pumpkin bread this week-end.  I love having extra days off. 

I have also cut my fabric, finished all of the blocks and have started sewing the rows together on my Kim Diehl quilt.
