Suburbs and Girls Getaway Progress

I am very happy to report that all of the blocks and stitching are completed on the Girls Getaway. Unfortunately, because I have so many projects going right now, some exchange gifts to make and Christmas looming (I was reminded that it's only 60 days away !!!!) I need to focus on other things. So Girls Getaway is taking a break until January, end of December at the earliest. I'm very pleased and excited to work on getting it together and finishing it.

I'm continuing to make progress on Suburbs. All of the houses are made. The trees are in process and need their stumps attached and they will be finished. With any luck, I will begin sewing rows together on Saturday.

Saturday's priority, however, is making soup bowl cozies. This is for a swap I signed up for at the beginning of the month and completely forgot about. They don't look hard to make, so really shouldn't take that long.

I may end up making sets for Christmas gifts, just because :)

Honey Do had Monday off for doctors appointments - follow ups and check ups, all good reports :)

I got to spend the day with him. It's been a long while since we could - work is insane for him.



We stopped at Panera for salads and went to the metropark for lunch. It was a gorgeous day. A little cool, but sunny. The leaves are almost at peak color.

Looking north from my back yard, we had some interesting clouds. This was Thursday morning around 6 a.m. (we are very early risers). It was really windy. I've never seen this before and thought it was worth sharing. Otherwise, the week has been pleasant. Still no frost for us. November is on the horizon, it will be here soon.

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a day filled with the things that make and keep you happy.

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love.

1 Corinthians 16:13-14 NIVUK

Love your girls getaway!! Your houses are looking great as well...looking forward to seeing that finished with your trees!! I made the microwave bowl holders one year for Christmas...make sure you include instructions to not put them in the microwave for more than a minute at a time. My dad started his on fire because he left them in too long. Make sure you use cotton thread as well...poly melts! I also made them for dinner plates as well. Never had a pattern, just winged it from looking at the picture of one online. It is actually the only tutorial I ever did on my blog!! Those clouds are amazing!! I would send a picture of them to your local meteorologist to find out what kind of clouds they are!!

That picture goes perfectly with the Bible quote! What a lovely day you had to be out with your sweetie. Those clouds are unusual. I know you want to put those blocks together, now that they are finished, but how disciplined of you to put them away and work on the other things that are important. =) I finished my trees this morning!
