I forgot to show you the changed version of the tablerunner. I changed some of the blocks and the way they were arranged. I am still not sure I am happy with it but I like it better then the first selection.
And one more thing" I also forgot to show you what I made my secret pal at work for halloween. The snippet bag had halloween candles and candy in it.I am really slippingggggggggg must be old age!

October 30th

Wow the time is still going by much too quickly! Yestarday was my birthday and it seems like I was going constantly. I went to work and the girls at work all gave me birthday gifts , then it was home to more birthday gifts. My daughter suprized me with several fat quarters of fabric which she knows her mama lovessssss! an adorable jar full of buttons and a pin cushion on top which she made with her very own hands! That makes it all the more special!

I had told hubby a few weeks ago that I wanted to get some chip carving knives as I thought I might enjoy learning how to do that. welllllll he ordered a complete set of carving type knives and they really weren't what I needed for the chip carving soooooooooo We wound up ordering a chip carving book and knives and a sharpening stone, so I should have plenty to keep me busy. I will never understand people that say they have nothing to do when they get older. Speaking for myself" I am busier then I ever was. Every time I turn around it seems as if there is something else to do.
I have my witch hung on the door for halloween. I have the makings for some carmeled apples in the kitchen ready to go". Last weekend we were in Nascar country for grandsons graduation from the nascar school. He seemed very happy and we were all happy that he had finally graduated. He has been there since July of 08 so it will be good to see him back home again. We also got to meet his new girlfriend Robin. She seems very nice and they seem very happy together. I am not sure how the move back home will effect things but I am sure they will work things out. where there is a will " there is always a way!. Like I told them " If I can fly three thousand miles every summer to see my family then they can certainly arrange travel for three hundred miles.

Lets see what else is going on" ohhhhhhhh I had a birthday email from one of my best friends in high school. She lives clear across the u.s. from me now and ever since her hubby introduced her to the sale of pet shop she has been swamped with work. I supsect that she is loving it as she has always been an animal lover. I can understand that since I am the same way. I have been working on a table runner and the blocks are all finished but haven't managed to set it together yet.
Welllllll I suppose that is all for now. We are waiting for the kids to come over for my birthday. Dougs son and daughter in law are comming tonite instead of last nite due to work ect. will post again as soon as I can" take care untill then.

October 10th

This has been a very crazzy last few weeks. Between painting the living room, haveing carpet and vinal put on the floors and health issues for both hubby and me" I am getting very little accomplished. by the time I get home from work and running to doctors and after perscriptions it seems like I head for the easy chair and that is where I remain untill bedtime. Hubby has to get another ultra sound because of swoolen ankels which dosen't sound very good too me. So while I am anxouse to get that one over with" I am worried that it will not be good news too.
My problems have been minor in comparison but irritating none the less. tennis elbow and I injured my shoulder by pulling a muscle at work which seems to have also worked its way down to my back. after being on pain pills and muscle relaxers for the past couple of weeks things are looking better. The tennis elbo required a shot in the elobo along with several weeks of streoids. And I wonder why I just keep getting bigger and bigger. I have to tell you that I am soooooooo sick of steroids.
Hubbies daughter may be arriveing next month. one of her sons is going into the military somewhere not far from us so she plans to visit us while going to his graduation.
Hubbies granson is graduating from automobile school so we are going to drive down and spend the nite in a motel so that we can be there for his graduation and drive back home. He has found himself a girlfriend and seems quite enamored with her. She is a couple of years older then he is and happens to be his boss right now. Should be interesting to watch what happens there.
Is everyone ready for holloween? I have my holloween wall hanging on the front door. around here the sun shines all the time so we hang it on the inside otherwise the sun would eat it up.
Have also been working on a new tablerunner. I saw a quilt on one of the bloggs and decided I could make that into a table runner so I got busy and figured out the pattern.
Well that is about all that is going on in my life at this time. so will leave and hopefully have better news the next time I post.
