Brrr. It's getting cold.

Finally a little bit of winter has come to western NC. No snow but the temps are getting way cooler, which means stay in the house and quilt!! Speaking of, I finished another monthly wallhanging from the Quilters Dozen book. All of these small quilts are just so cute. Dave thinks every month is the best one, lol. Here's the picture of November.

Isn't the scarecrow sweet? I had it pieced last week and did the quilting yesterday. I used this variegated thread for the applique pieces and biege for the background. I was so stupid when I changed thread and forgot to check my tension and after meandering all of the background, and thinking I was done, the back was just a whole slew of eyelashes, lol. I had to tear it all out and do it over. I won't forget to check the tension again!!!

I think we're going to go to the casino in Cherokee today. They sent us a notice about some drawings they are having, and also gave us each a voucher for $10.00 cash just to get us started, lol. We don't go often, maybe twice a year, and we don't spend too much, but it is always fun, and we have actually won a few times. Wish us luck.

Hi, thanks for looking at my blog. I wish I lived in NC being a Nascar fan and all.
My licence plate here in Canada is Nascar 88. Needless to say I am very popular with the guys. Then they see me and wonder what's an old lady doing with those
We are heading to Raleigh this winter to visit a cousin there. Love the area and we have been there a few times. Y
Your blog is neat!

It IS getting cold here isn't it? I am not ready for it to be this cold this early in the season. Good luck at the casino!
