Yep, I'm Still Here

My New Year's resolution is going to be to be a better blogger!!
Promise!
I have to show you all my goodies I got from Stacy at Pinkberry Sprinkles.
She asked us our thoughts on Halloween and I got this great package from her:
Isn't it Spooktacular. Thanks Stacy.
I think Halloween is a fun time. I am not very organized this year with moving and all, but I do have pumpkins and a few bits and pieces scattered about.
And lots of candy!!!!!!
I also need to show off my finish from September--Yes, shame on me for being so slow.
I really did finish on time for Sept.
My fall turkey runner is done!!!
I have not been totally unproductive this month. Really! I took a class from Bonnie Hunter a couple of weeks ago. I went with Lola from ...And Sew On, which is good cause she brought the camera. So troodle on over there and look at some of the amazing quilts that were done.
Here is my progress so far:
I am quite pleased with it so far. I just need to make 12 more blocks because I want it to be a wee bit bigger. Hopefully I will have enough of these bits that I chopped off the corners:
to make a border out of. This is a really fun scrappy quilt. If you are into the scrappy craze, you need to go visit Bonnie's site called Quiltville. If you scroll down a bit and look at the list on the right hand side, you will find a ton of free scrappy quilt patterns. Fun stuff!! Then go to her blog and check out the most amazing hexagon star quilt she is doing.
OH
Before I go, I need to tell you to zip over to Joy's blog and sign up for her cute little Hot Potato giveaway. Or just tell her to be good and stay in bed like the doctor has told her to do, so that she will heal faster!!!
I will try to get pictures of the return of Alice's Zoo soon. The furry ones are trying very hard to make photography impossible.
Hope you are all having a marvelous Wednesday!!!
L,A-

I had something clever to say, but forgot what it was.....
It's all looking great, anyway :) If we had a "who has done the most blocks" competition, you would win :) Keep sewing for me,
