Happy Blocks Are Falling

... Into My Mailbox!!!

I was a Happy Blocks winner in the September drawing for The Scrappy and Happy Group!  I am "sew happy" !!

The theme for this month was Fall Foliage. I love fall fabrics. <3

Here are my blocks, half of which I am sending to the other lucky winner ...

Since I was the first name out of the hat, I get to chose the theme for next months blocks.  I picked " creamy neutrals."  As I am not eligible to win again for a couple of months, I shall just have to make some extras for myself.  

These blocks are sew easy and fun to make and share.

I am Scrappy and Happy ...

In my email box that morning I found one of those keep the chain going messages from a dear friend, an emergency room nurse, reminding me to "Never miss the chance to tell someone you love that you love them."

As is my habit, I did not forward. I read and replied. I also typed an email to my hubby and my kiddoes to let them know how much I love them.

After I pressed send, I clicked on the news site ... just in time to see the second plane hit ...

remember ...

love ...

My Quilty Kitties Say Thanks

My Quilty Kitties and I just want to say "Thanks!" to all who visited my site for the Pets On Quilts Show and left so many nice comments.   Ghost wanted to get into the act and show his happy face.  Here he looks like a short hair cat, but in the winter his fur is long and wooly and so thick.  In the spring he sheds it all at once and is sleek for summer.  You can see how clean he keeps himself; he is a happy cat. Also, as you can see, he looooooooves Ms Butterfly ... who is neutered and not interested when he plays Romeo.  Sometimes he sings under her window. ;)

I have been doing lots of sewing. :)  Mina has been helping ...

More quilty photos coming soon.  ;)

I have also been enjoying the end of summer.  Today we filled the back of my son's truck with huge Fall Mums for the yard.  For now I shall share a photo of my zinnias and petunias in my windowboxes ...


Have a safe and happy Labor Day Weekend ... :-) Pat
