Is anyone else as freaked out as I am about today being the last day of November?
Thanksgiving seemed to come so late this year – I could swear that we’ve been short sheeted this month – how can tomorrow be December ALREADY!?!
Yesterday afternoon we went out for a long drive around Buck Mountain, showing Dad our surroundings around the cabin.
We stopped by the “fishin’ hole” and the sky was so blue ----in a pond as still as glass. I just HAD to get out and try to capture this image in a photo ---isn’t the reflection great?
Dad enjoyed being out and about, even though his Arizona blood is a bit thin! Temps were in the mid 40s – but when the sun is shining, it’s all good!
We stopped by the waterfall – Sadie in tow, her nose to the ground, capturing the multitude of smells available to her.
Sadie, Me & Dad!
The waterfall isn’t in full view, but it was beautiful. And COLD!
Today we drove back down the mountain ---stopping at a fave Mexican place for lunch before dropping Dad off at the airport. So sad to see him go, but so glad to have had him here!
I did a bit of antiquing on the way home –I’m looking for end tables and a bedside table for the guest rooms ---I’ve got goodies to share in tomorrow morning’s blog post, so please come back tomorrow to see!
I do need to thank Marilyn C for the crocheted spool pin doilies and needles!
I will have the best dressed vintage machines on the Eastern Seaboard!
Thank You, Marilyn!
She had contacted me about the needles you see in the bottom right – they are round shafted, no flat spot – but the package does say 15 X 1 so they are a standard size. The back of the package says they are size 16 ball point.
Do any of my vintage machine peeps know what kind of machine these would be for? They remind me of the kind of package my MR 4.5 needles for my APQS Millennium come in. Let me know if you are familiar with these!
And guess what? Tomorrow morning I am stealing Lisa back away up to the cabin ---Yes. I’m going BACK! We are planning a couple days of girlfriend machine time – and NO BOYS ALLOWED! After 5 days of being surrounded by football and menfolk ---we are taking over and sewing our brains out and planning on a marathon chick-flick-fest! Something has to even out the testosterone overload that I have had to deal with this past week! LOL!
I’ll be home Tuesday afternoon – and it will be time to get packed up for Germany on Monday!
So –since we haven’t done Quilt-Cam in a while – how about Wednesday evening at 9pm Eastern? Let’s do it! Mark your calendars – and I”ll send reminders.
Have a great evening everyone!
