Happy Birthday, Kim

Today is November 1 -- our daughter-in-law, Kim's birthday. She's Steve's wife, confidant, friend and partner and we're glad to have her in the family. Happy Birthday, Kim.

Here's November's calendar page -- AJ is a sports nut just like his father and Will loves cars and balls, so I'm sure he'll be following in his father's footsteps also!

Seems to be a very busy time of year for me -- I thought things were going to calm down after the busy summer, but no sign of that. I need to finish and publish the last guild newsletter for the year (we don't meet in December). This newsletter will be a bare bones edition and I want to get it finished quickly and sent out. This next week is going to be especially busy so I need to get the chores done early!

Monday night Bonnie Hunter will be at the Petunia Quilters guild meeting doing her scrap users system program -- I'm really looking forward to this and hopefully will get the chance to meet her. I'm not all that familiar with the town, but hopefully won't have a problem finding the place.

Friday I'll be on the road early to babysit the boys while Steph goes with Briana on a school field trip. Saturday I've volunteered to peel potatoes and do whatever else needs to be done for our church's turkey dinner fundraiser, and Steph & Aaron and the boys will be down to eat that evening.
In between -- I have quilts to deliver and quilt tops to pick up, a doctor's appointment, and sometime I need to clean the house and do laundry (can't understand why it doesn't stay clean and why we have to do laundry every week! vbg). We'll be doing Thanksgiving on the Sunday before, so I need to start gearing up for that as well.

I need to do a complete computer clean-out as soon as the newsletter is finished. I find myself wading through stuff instead of getting where I want to go right away, so it's way past time to clean up files, dump the excess and back up the stuff I want to keep -- I know this will be a couple of weeks work and I may switch computers again as well, but it really needs to be done.

I have started working on piecing one of Bonnie's quilt from her book, and I hope to have the top pieced before Christmas. I'd like to get it quilted and bound before Christmas as well, but I seem to be getting a bit busier quilting for other people at this time, so it may not get finished by then. I'm sure everything will slow down some after Christmas and I'll be able to get back to my own projects by then.

Indian Summer has arrived and we have a few more days of it forecasted.
I'm grateful this newsletter will be the last for me to edit -- there will be a new editor beginning in January.

are guests allowed at your guild? I would love to hear Bonnie Hunter too.

Please let me know and I might just attend.
