~~~~~~Energizing needed~~~~~~

Where to start, where to start!  Between dental visits due to my tooth dying, a root canal and starting an online teachers assistant program things have not been slow around my house.  I am also on a steering team for MOPS in a fundraiser position. 

We have also had Josh's dad come for a visit which was very fun!  Ayden was able to show Grandpa his preschool,play some putt-putt golf, play football and on and on.  We drove up north a bit to Josh's Aunt's home as well and really enjoyed our time there riding on ATV'S for the first time and exploring their land! 

Things are a slowing down.....waiting for the perfect moment to sneak up on us again I imagine;) 

I have been very pleased with a couple of events that have occurred in September along the lines of my quilting business.  I sold 2 quilts and a set of potholders.  More importantly,  the first quilt that traveled outside of NC went to a gal that designs for a button company in NJ.  She picked my quilt from Etsy.  Her intentions are to embellish it in buttons and then it will be at a booth on display at Quilt Market in Houston,TX!!!!!  I sent her a small biography about myself and my shop for her to enclose with the quilt.  I feel that this could only lead to positive things;) 

During MOPS last week, a friend of mine inquired about a baby quilt with her kids clothes in it.  Today I went to MOPS and she said that she would like 3 quilts.  One for each of her 3 kiddos with their baby clothes!!  Fine by me:)  I am also doing a raffle Christmas quilt for MOPS as well  to be finished by the beginning of November. 

My shop could also use some more quilts so I am trying to finish the umbrella quilt.

Already pieced the back yesterday so I need to some time to baste it up.  I really like it too now that it is all done up with the turquoise and orange border fabric.  Just need a binding color and it will be complete.

I can't forget to show off some pics of the paper piecing extravaganza;);)

Taking my time and relishing in the pattern that is evolving. 

that Kona Papaya is fabulous!!!

8 more to go and it will be ready for the center circle and then my living room for display!

In my spare time........hehehehe I created some Angry Bird bean bags for the munchkin.  The pig below them was courtesy of the hubby!!!  They are a little rough around the edges,but they serve their purpose to make Ayden smile and throw them through the piggie's mouth!
