Thanks are in order

kreativbloggeraward Edda sent this to me. Thank you Edda, it is very nice of you to include me. Now I must send this along to 5 others. I don't know if any of you have received this before, but these are certainly blogs that I read regularly and try to keep up with:

Other news from the homefront:
Camping with the grandkids, last week-end was quite a hoot. As always it was great. This year, however, we had to go to a different park due to scheduling difficulties. Kitsap Memorial Park is a very nice park but with camping sites that are WAAAAAY too small. We were right on top of our neighbors on both sides and sleeping at night was difficult with folks talking right outside your "bedroom". Nonetheless, the grandmas and mom came home really tired (as were the kids) but we had a swell time.

Since returning home, I have done a few things involving fabric. I went to my favorite second-hand store and found some In The Beginning fabric. Four yards for $4.99. I love that price. I hope that people continue to clean out their fabric store and give it to the Goodwill. I promise to make good use of it.

Don't think I have ever shown you this vest I made about a year ago. I have to sew one of the elephant buttons back on, but I was quite pleased with how it turned out.

My quilting buddy Ronda and I visited a marvelous local quilt store and they had kits to make Halloween pillowcases. Well, thought I, I have fabric (as did Ronda) so we combined our left-overs and I'm making pillowcases for the Grands for Halloween. Cute, huh? And the middle border (with the pumpkins and black cats, outlined in white) glows in the dark! Woo Hoo - scary!
