Tinges and Twinges

Wow, long time, no blog--again! My bad. After a delightful sisters weekend in Branson, I came home to visitors I dearly love--older DS and his Significant Other who were in town for a couple of days! So the eating and hilarity that began in southern Missouri continued right here at home. Tinges of autumn color were spotted along the way home from Branson to KC--so welcome. Twinges of guilt were felt for all the calories consumed in just a few days LOL!!! DS's SO decided that we needed to decorate my front porch plain-jack pumpkins. Since it was still a bit early to actually carve them (stinky sunken jacks for Halloween night? No thanks!) we opted for painting them.




Such fun! Hopefully they are far enough out of the weather on my front porch to avoid paint runs in the rain!!!


Younger son is now in town for a business meeting and we'll see him later today on his way to the airport. A mom's delight--getting to see both sons in the same week!

Still no progress on the quilting front. I have, instead, been doing a bit of knitting. Nothing finished to show yet but it is so-o-o relaxing to work those sticks and strings together. Just to keep this blog a teeny tiny bit quilty, I pulled out this little Itsy Bitsy Spider doll quilt for a rerun. Maybe that's just what the quilting doctor is ordering--a new fun fast doll quilt! But for now, I am off to concoct some of the homemade soap balls from 2 Old Crows Primitive Craft. Thanks, Libby, for pointing us to that wonderful website!!! I tried to link to it but they were on AOL Journal which has been closed down. Maybe a search could bring it up. Sorry.
