let the festivities commence . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

It's BIRTHDAY weekend!!  Hip, hip!!  The fun started Thursday evening when I pulled up and there were two beautiful planters of my favorite fall flowers . . .
MUMS!  Aren't they pretty?  Todd knows me so well!

Friday we hit the lake around 11:30.  Even the fish must have known it was my birthday weekend! I actually pulled out my pole (Todd was catching them hand over fist, so to speak) and I did well. 
I caught about eight (to Todd's twenty, but who's counting?).  Mine were GOOD sized!
The heron even squawked out a birthday greeting.  ;)

Life in the POND from Sew Fresh Quilts

This was a fast and fun finish!

Say hello to my little froggy!

I had the most fun choosing fabrics for this quilt. I love the way these dots all play off of each other.

Another fresh dusting of snow made for the perfect backdrop.

The backing was pieced using a yard of Sticks & Twine by Alison Glass for Andover Fabrics.

And I had an extra lily pad, so I decided to piece it into the backing.

I quilted using my usual wavy lines from edge to edge using my walking foot on my domestic.

happy busy . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

This is going to be another photo-heavy post; I've had lots going on!  We can only carry over 40 hours of vacation time into the new year, and I realized here it was late in October, and I had over 80 hours--I needed to burn some time!  And since we get two weeks over the Christmas holiday, I don't need it for then.  So I took Monday and Tuesday and enjoyed another five day weekend.  Bliss!

I did so much I'm going to have to split it over a couple of posts.  Don't laugh. Sunday was ...
