HEHEHE, can't believe I'm posting again.....trying to at least once a week.....well that darn bag isn't lining up as I weave it, I retried three times, not sure what I'm doing wrong but I'll put is aside for a bit, followed that pattern to a "T"..ouch not happy but the bag from hell will have to wait LOLOL... moved onto some smaller projects, made a few tube scarfs which I'll take pic this week to show, also made a sock monkey and when I was done, daughter claimed it and the little guys all want one LOL...guess what I'll be doing..turned out cute for the first one.  We went out to my cousin's Halloween party last night (yep, little late but) we had a blast, posting a picture of myself and hubby along with another of my sister and bros-in-law, our other sister didn't want to go..she lost out on a great evening....Well, not much else to say but I'll be back soon....Ciao, Adios, Salue, Goodnight and Bonsoir mes amies....

Well, well, here I am ..... lolol....I have been swamped...first we closed up the camp and trailor, took two weekends to bring and put away etc...also started to go to an awesome gym ( love it....then given all lot of attention to our new member of our family "Memphis", she is awesome Basset Hound, 3years old got from a friend who's mom was very ill with cancer and could no longer take care of her :(  she's a little spoiled and  loves lots of attention, loves the grandkids big time...easy going, but her smeller is something, when she picks up a scent (while taking her for a walk), her nose is to the ground and hard to walk so I went and got her a "Halti"..what an amazing tool... she walks like a queen and love to walk her... Also a bed hog, bought a big fluffy dog pillow and she fell in love with it, can't believe she actually slept on it since Friday without us asking her to or take her off our bed..good girl....last few weekends, I pulled the old yucky rug downstairs and put in son's room laminate flooring, now have to lay that the rest of the basement....much nicer and easy to keep clean..yesterday (Saturday) our guild had a one day retreat...oh what fun we had...I worked on a bag "Diamond Island Bag" omg, what a challenge...I'm still playing around with the strips ekkks....this isn't a beginner project..also working on scrappy strip quilt for the camp..I've finished two tops but couldn't quilt til put son's room back together...have to set up Gracie so I can boogie... well, hope everyone is having a great fall...and also happy holloween to all ...
Ciao, Adios, Salute, Night, Bonsoir mes amis..

Shame, shame....yep....haven't blogged in a while..shame on me.... I have been visiting many blogging friends however, too many ideas, ekks..lolol.. Now that I am on March break, I have plans....well, maybe I should say "I am gonna do it"...I put my daughter's quilt on the frame last week and went to quilt when lots of fowl words came out...yep.. surestitch stitch regulator isn't fiddled, and fiddled..^%^&#@ thing all the lights are on and no I google problems on this matter and might have the answer...something about the contacts on the rollers...ugg...not pissing around with that right now (sorry) but want to finish this so I can finish another smaller quilt...hummm I still have the manual stitch thingy from the Gracie II that came with it.. well, finally away I started..woooohoooooo but now to late to continue cause son wants his room back for the evening tomorrow I'll get back downstairs (in his room) and I'll stitch away but just for few hours cause we need to get over at the in-laws, it's hubby's mother's 85th birthday...can't miss that cause she's a special lady... Not much else new, only trying to knit socks that the pattern don't make sense lol..also knitting "newfie mitts" those are really cool..have to make a few so I can give as Christmas gifts...
