Monday updates

Mondays are a good day for an update.  Blogger can get very slow on the weekends making any posting a challenge.  I'm catching up on housework and laundry this morning.  I've had a terrible head cold for the last week so I've let things slide.  Fall sports are officially over...... happy dance....and holiday planning is under way. 

Meal planning is part of the fun of fall holidays.  Fall makes me want to bake, too.  So, while this piece doesn't look exactly fallish it reminds me of this time of year.  I couldn't resist starting it despite having several other pieces in the works.

'Pie Menu' by Country Cottage Needleworks....

This past weekend was Customer Appreciation weekend at the quilt store closest to my house.  I rarely go, though.  Recently they featured a quilt pattern in an e-newsletter that I wanted so I stopped in.  They were giving out tickets for drawings based on the amount of $$ spent.  I didn't pay attention to what the prizes were, figuring I'd never win.  Well, surprise, surprise.  I got a call this morning that I'd won a quilt!  I have no idea what quilt but winning was exciting.  I'll take a drive at some point this week and pick it up.  It's kind of fun having another surprise to look forward to. 

Back to the laundry.
