We are at my sister’s today to go trick or treating on a haywagon behind a tractor. My sister has been having this gathering for over 6 years now. It is a great time because so many friends and relatives come that we only see one time a year.

My GREATniece Elysia

On the drive here I stopped at a few two antique stores and two quilt shops. I picked up 4 fat quarters of white on white and one bundle of sunflower fabric. YES, for my sunflower quilt. I also purchased a Sun Bonnet Sue quilt that was $32.00 on sale for $20.00. There are 3 blocks that have mold spots on them. I could try replacing the muslin fabric on the blocks or I could reduce the quilt down to a crib quilt size and replace the 3 blocks with the mold. The quilt is currently 4 blocks across and 5 blocks down.

I love this. My nephew just took this photo on his cell phone. Sent it to my yahoo and then we downloaded onto this site. It’s amazing what you can do these days. The video of my GREATniece was done the same way.

This is my nephew. He is also my Godson and the oldest of 10 nieces and nephews. He has his 3rd child on the way. Tomorrow we will celebrate his son’s 9th birthday. His son is a year older than mine…..funny how that works. Pat made the link piece under the chestplate. He has been working on it for a few years and finished it today. It is made of thousands of metal links that he put together with a pliers.  It weighs over 30 lbs. It is really a cool piece.
