Beautiful Weather, Quilting and Pickles!

We have been sitting out on our Veranda and enjoying the beautiful weather!
 I  have been sewing table toppers. The pattern is titled "Charming Edges", designed by B's Caprice. 
 Very fun to make, especially if you want to use your scraps, we all have them, right?

And just for fun, I want to share a cute cartoon with you all.

Happy May Day!!

Every year when I was in grade and high school we had a "May Day" event. We dressed in lovely pastel lavender, yellow, pink and blue dresses---with a sprig of flowers tucked in our hair and danced around the decorated may pole.   

 Before or after school we would go around our neighborhood with our colorful "May Baskets" we had made filled with popcorn, candy and a few flowers. We delivered them to our friends doorstep, rang the door bell and quickly hide behind a bush till they went inside...what a fun and wonderful memory! 
I finished a quilt for our bed and a friend quilted it with her long arm machine....

... Miss Abbie just had to pose!!!
wishing all a "Happy May Day"!

Hugs, Carolyn

Where Did The Summer Go...And What I have Been Up To!

Summer came and went! -----Now we are almost to the end of Fall! Is your Turkey thawing, yet?  
We took our annual trip to Galina, Illinois for four days the weekend of October 25th. We based in Galina and toured the Galina Territory along with side trips to Minnesota and Wisconsin. The fall colors along the Mississippi River Road were spectacular! Guttenberg, Iowa was a blaze with fall colors! 
The views from our deck were beautiful.  
Few pictures of downtown Galina 

 We took this picture a few years ago, first snow!
When we returned home our Christmas Cactus was in full bloom. 

I have been sewing aprons, quilts, creating Santa's, small quilt tops for wire table toppers and painting watercolor cards. 
                      I was a vendor at the Edgewater Retirement Complex, last weekend. a week and a half, I will be a vendor in the Holiday Market on 39th Street!
I have missed blogging, and all of you! I will post more.

'Happy Thanksgiving' to you and your families!
This is a special time of the year -----so much to be thankful for!
