Joined up for the 'Wicked' blog hop in Oct.  the button is on my sidebar; please take a look.
The FMQ Challenge is on for a few more months....I still have to try this month's challenge and the bonus challenge....I did take a few pictures yesterday to try to sketch for the bonus challenge.
That will be I'm not artist!!  But will be fun...

And I have 3 more quilt tops arriving the end of this month to hand quilt. After my vacation.
Marla is going on this trip to Pennsylvania with me; she has been there before; first time for me.
It is a bus trip...staying in the Amish Comfort Inns for a few days. This is something I am really looking forward to....quilts!!!!!!!! quilt shops!!!!!
