Currently ~ Tea with Abi

Today I'd like to tell you what I've been up to lately, over a {virtual} cup of tea.
{this month's quilt square was made for Abi}

I've been baking goodies for Doug’s upcoming hunting trip.

Listening to my nephew Ryne’s new CD.

Sewing up a storm! I’m getting ready to finish putting Carrie’s quilt together.

Planning another sewing project for a certain baby girl who will be a sweet new addition to our family in 2014.

Prioritizing projects – coming up with ideas for a baby shower for said baby girl but trying to plan Christmas first…

Yelling at one little dog for darting out the front door, across the street, and in the face of another innocent doggy who was minding his own business on his morning walk. Bad Lucky dog.

Loving our cooler temps and this lovely Arizona fall weather.

Wearing tops with sleeves for a change, and also boots. Hooray for boots!

Participating in Cathy Zielske’s 30 Days of Thankful, Fiona’s Friendship Quilt project, and Miriam’s Christmas Ornament Exchange.

Preparing for a holiday party at our house at the end of November. We’re going to have live entertainment this year!

Having so much to tell my mom and missing her a lot. Here come the holidays…

Drinking tea {albeit virtually} with the lovely Abi.

what a darling square for Abi. Thanks for the virtual cuppa - you sound delightfully busy with satisfying projects. I'm crocheting lots of squares and trying to organise a skill swap

Louise said...

Ahh...it sounds like you have lots to keep you busy in the weeks ahead!

Abi said...

Thank you for joining in Deb! Wouldn't it be lovely to catch up in real life! I love the sound of all that sewing. I'm glad to see you are joining in with ornament swap! I am too and am very excited!

Jo said...

It's lovely to spend a moment with you hearing about your lovely plans x

alexa said...

What a beautiful patchwork piece! And so cleverly conceived and made ... And exciting about the new baby! Lots of sewing and then lots of photos? I have enjoyed popping in very much :).

Susi said...

That has got to be the cutest quilt square I've ever seen. How do you keep your head above water...you seem so busy. Please channel some of your energy my way. I've been pondering doing CZ's Thirty Days of Thankful but I'm not much of a digital scrapper, do you digi scrap?

Jo.C said...

Love the patchwork and Carrie is going to love hers too x

Audrey said...

Oh my, Lucky....I keep laughing but I know it's not funny....it's awful when you're in the middle of it....but these dogs are definitely their own little people!!! :-)

Love your square, Deb!

Sew (ha, ha!) to hear all your news over a virtual cuppa. x

Hi Deb, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

Cannot wait to see the great Christmas crafts you come up with this year! You always make someone something that I say to myself, "I want that!"

Sian said...

Your patchwork is beautiful! And I'm looking forward to the ornament swap too

Hurray for boots indeed.

Oh by golly are you ever busy. You deserve a rest and a spot of tea.

Karen said...

I loved this square when I saw it on Abi's blog! Just perfect. Glad to catch up with you.

Becky said...

Gosh you are very busy! I'm looking forward to Miriam's ornament swap too!

Prairie Jill said...

Thank you for the cuppa! It's so nice to hear what you've been up to. (Even if I am a bit envious of your nice warm Arizona weather. I lived in Tucson for a while - and it's very different from Winnipeg!)

Looking forward to seeing you again next month.

Gail said...

What a lovely looking square! Sounds like you've got a lot of sewing on the go. It was nice catching up with you, now to catch up on what's happened since.
