November entered w/a hard rain! It also took me to a Mini Quilting Group meeting I attend monthly! It is so fun. We never know what new challenge our "teacher" is going to present to us! Here is the beginning of the new one! These are "scrappy" flying geese "parts" in reds and greens, the sky is beige! I have sewn one of the four strips for this "mini quilt". It measures 2"X "11"!!! Hope to finish this before "next" year!!!

I know you will expect photo's, but alas, there are none!! We spent a couple weeks up in northern California "flyfishing" paradise. Except I didn't fish...DH did,(this was a first "catch and release" trip, usually we eat fresh trout and always bring some home to smoke.) and I didn't even leave the confines of the motel except to wander a couple blocks to a fabuloush old fashion "dime store" that has everything you'd need for survival in a remote area. Even....fabric!!! A limited amount. Of course I did imbibe in several yards ! But, I actually rested and had taken handwork w/me that I started 2 years ago when we were in the same location!! I actually finished one embroidery sampler! I grew fingernails, rested my aching body and slept as late as I wanted. Even watch t.v. shows that I never have seen or even knew about! Didn't cook,do laundry,or make a bed! I LOVED IT! The weather was perfect w/fall colors every where.The population probably is about 1,200. Now that I am back to the real world, I have 2 decent looking nails left!!! Our little dog was sooo happy we rescued her from the doggy motel. I am so looking forward to seeing my "quilty" friends on the coming weekend at the monthly guild meeting.
