Ellie & Bama met each other this past weekend. They jumped, ran and played together for about 3 hours. Needless to say both sleep good Saturday night!
Oh, but let me show you what Ellie did on Thursday while DD was at work.
Look closely,
It was a window sill!

She has spend a large time in her box since than.
No free time for her!

New Member of the family

I keep forgetting to introduce the newest member of the family!This is Ellie.
Our daughter adopted her two weeks ago. Ellie's' owners after about a year decided they did not want her anymore. They had moved into a upscale neighborhood and home here in the area. The Dad decided the dog needed to go! He didn't want the dog in the house, and didn't think the yard and neighborhood was the right place for her. So "A" (DD) took over her ownership and care. This should be a reminder to all of us who plan to get a pet, not to get one, unless you are really going to care and look after it as you should.
So we are now a family, who at one point had two Boxers and a Aussie,
to a family of one Aussie and TWO Golden Retrivers!
(Things will be great as long as Bama & Ellie don't come to live with the King of Fernleaf.)

Another UFO - complete!

The first of the two "Siggy Quilts" I am doing for the newly weds is complete. Glad to have it finished. Over the weekend I hope to get it to the lucky couple.
I received an e-mail this past week from a friend. He sent me this link to one of the most beautiful renditions of
Amazing Grace.

It's been a busy two weeks!

I can't believe it has been two weeks since I last posted! The past two weeks have been busy ones. Since posting last, I have worked three days, been to the Boone shop for a OESD Embroidery program, taught one serger class, attended the two Quilting Guild November meetings, gone to the gym, sewn on a few UFO's, and been to the Capitol City for the NC State and Wake Forest football this past Saturday.
(And other household duties and appointments!)
One of my husbands good friends, invited us to tailgate with him and his family on Saturday in Raleigh for the
Wake Forest & NC State football game.
So, we loaded the truck with the kids and headed to Wolfpack country.
The weather and final out come of the game (Wake lost) could have been better, but the fellowship was well worth the trip to the Capitol City.

The Kernersville Heart of the Triad Quilting Guild , for those who are interested, are doing a Mystery Quilt called "Durango". Having never done a mystery quilt before, I decided to participate.
I had to choose 4 fabrics.
Main (floral),background(gold) and two accents (pink & green).

I have completed the first two parts of the challenge. Here are the beginning pieces and parts. Can't wait to see what and how this is going to go together!

The Progess is Complete

This weekend I presented my SIL with her final sole.Just in time for the new church year that will begin
the first Sunday in December.
The creating and designing of her stoles,
have given me more
pleasure than I can explain.
Today I attended her installation as Pastor at
Sardis Evangelical Lutheran Church
in Hickory, NC.
I was also with her when she got the initial call from the "Call committee" of Sardis. I and DH were visiting with her & my brother while
she was still in
her senior year at the Lutheran Seminary in Gettysburg, Pa.
She (as well as my brother) were welcomed with open arms. It gave me a good feeling to see her at her first church.
She will, with God's help, be a wonderful Pastor
who will
love, serve and pray for her sheep.
