therapy ...

   Therapy comes in many forms.   Mine comes in the form of sewing.   I finally fired up the Handquilter on Friday night and quilted a crib quilt.  Finally.   Since the road trip to Pine City in August, the two scrapbooking gigs and market season -- there really hasn't been much time for creativity.  So ....

 
Saturday morning I loaded up Mom and Auntie Joanne and we road tripped it to Burnsville and the SRHarris Fabric Outlet -- lots of pretties in this pile.  Like 33 yards of pretties, not in the picture is a kit and 2 spools of Aurifil orange variegated thread. 
 
And this took less than an hour -- most of the time was at the cutting table -- so, after this we headed south and stopped at Kohls in Shakopee -- scored a pair of shorts for $3.25 -- yep a deal !  another pair of leggings (quit laughing) -- and lunch at Zuppa Cucina -- highly recommend this place --
 
Came home and back to the sewing room -- 60 minutes with the vacuum cleaner -- hmmm --- finally sat down and finished piecing top #1 -- some blocks I found in the UFO pile, Sunday morning it was top #2 --- again in the UFO pile and then I pressed top #3 -- it was hanging on the long arm and top #4 pieced in Pine City ... the handiquilter will be busy this week.
 
 
Spectacular Sunday on Daisy Lane -- between the bouts of cleaning frenzy -- there was time to enjoy the beauty of November ....
 
 
I have no moon pictures -- night photography and I don't always agree -- but it was gorgeous ... even this morning in the inbound commute ...
 
Tally Ho!  It's Monday --- Enjoy the moments.
