We had great fun last week-end (and I forgot my camera). We visited the farm (dogs, chickens, sheep) that one of our ministers keeps. The three bigger grands came along and we had a great time. We also pressed some apples for super fresh cider.
Been getting ready for colder weather. Got the winter quilts on the bed.
And the living room re-arranged. What the heck.
I did 'live it up' and bought myself a new toy. This has been much of my time
This is soup weather - so got this one going today. And we all know that homemade soup is better reheated, so this is actually for Saturday. Our church owns an apartment house which is made available to limited income families. At least one of the units is vacant, so there is a paint up/fix up day on Saturday. I sure won't feel like making supper after a day there, so this will be all set in the 'fridge for warming up.
My long-arm quilting friend Alayne provided me with 5 different threads to try out for free-motion quilting. So I made a little "sandwich" and gave them a "go". They are all Superior Threads and I do like them.

Tomorrow is taking the motorhome in for winterizing before parking it for the "duration" (sigh!!!) and then a University of Washington Women's Basketball game. The Pac 12 doesn't actually start until January, but there are several pre-season games to get us all in the mood. Onward!
