Thirty days have passed since I last shared the adventures around here!!!
I still have not figured out how to slow time down!!!

We have been busy busy busy as usual.....just seems to be a way of life anymore!!

We did take a day last month and headed out east on Columbia River Gorge Hwy to Hood River to drive through all the orchards and lavendar much to see and such a great day!!

We ended the day with a stop at a place in Cascade Locks which serves the largest icecream cones you have ever seen!!! Of course Jeff had the large size.....

Showers have been abundant the last month with the anticipation of the arrival of the triplets!! Amy is doing well and starting her 31st week!! The goal is to get her to 35 weeks and anything over that will be a bonus!!! Look at these darling hats and booties my sister in law knitted for them!!! I must say they will be the best dressed triplets around!!! The cribs are up and things are coming together!! Addison is practicing their names.........
Olivia, Hailey, and Emma.........

and is going to be the best cousin!! Today she and I took a trip to the very sweet local nursery and picked out pumpkins and flowers to take to Aunt Amy.....she is now on house arrest for the remainder of her pregnancy except for doctor appointments and a trip to church if she feels up to it. September was busy with the NW Quilting Expo Show!! It was a GREAT show and so fun to see so many old friends and lots of new ones too!! I always come home from the shows so encouraged and excited to be doing what I love to do!!!
Currently Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe is hosting a trunk show of Wooden Spool Designs!!

They have been most gracious to add my designs in their shop and have added lots of wool, have new homesspuns, and bolts and bolts of other great fabrics!!!

Class last week was so much fun!!

We made the Boo Banner, and a stack of wool pumpkins!!! Hope this finds you enjoying the fall season!!
