Mug Rugs Mailed

Well I'm feeling a bit like our Government today, nothing like waiting until the 11th hour to mail my swap partners mug rugs to her.  Today was the deadline for mailing to Canada.  Woo, nothing like procrastinating.  But I'm done, and they are on their way,

After I hear that my swap partner has received them I will show the fronts.  This swap was hosted by Quilting Gallery they have a Christmas Stocking Swap coming up, check it out here. this is a fun way to meet new quilting friends, and I will be joining the stocking swap
I also worked a little on four patch units for my guilds upcoming swap in January,  and getting to know my 1952 Singer 66.  She runs like a charm.

Threaded and ready to sew baby sew!

4 patches in Greens & Lights.
So here's to swaps, I'm enjoying them. Happy piecing, and happy swapping.

A Beach Vacation in Autumn

Friday afternoon driving across the bay bridge, one of Maryland's most scary bridges to travel...I just learned that fact within the last couple months.  I am not afraid to travel across the bridge, in fact I have walked across the bridge more than once in my lifetime.  I enjoy this beautiful historic bridge, and love traveling across it with my man, and to my number one sumertime, and week 40 time share destination Ocean City, Maryland.  No traffic due to the Government Shutdown...This fact is not for me to blog about.
Leaving Annapolis, heading to Ocean City

I love this shot!  My "inner photographer" is showing.  Check into our Timeshare Friday, let the week begin!

The pool is open?
Someone forgot her bathing suit
The last two years it has been cool during week 40, and the pool has been closed.  The weather here has been high 70's to low 80's, sooo the pool is still open.  I didn't bring my suit!  So a walk up to Sunsation's three blocks up Costal Highway and bathing suits 50% off will "land" me in that pool or in the ocean before the week is out.  A minor side track to an Open House made an easy 2.10 mile walk on a beautiful moning a beautiful thing.

Before my solo adventure, a morning drive to Harris Teeter was in order for water, and a few essentials.  And who ever heard of "Blue Cheese Coleslaw"?  Harris Teeter that's who!  Real good stuff!  On the way home (to aka week 40 condo)...who knew that Ocean City has a Farmer Market?  Not me...and we did stop to pick up a few fresh things to add to our evening dining pleasure's.

Sweet White Corn, Cucumbers, & Tomatoes
After my morning walk, my man wanted to watch the Maryland football game, so off to Dagsboro Delaware, and Serendipity Quilt Shop.

Back on September 15th the Redskins v. Packers.  A yard of fabric was the bet, MaryAnn's Packers beat my Redskins.  MaryAnn is a My Lazy Daisy Consultant who I have only met on Facebook, and we have a lot in common, and I am happy to send her her winnings. 

Corvette Parade on the Boardwalk

And to end the day, a parade of Corvettes on the Boardwalk.  Next Thursday the Cruisers will start to arrive.  I love week 40 at the beach.

Happy Piecing, and Happy Autumn.

Just want to say

A future Braves fan
I posted this cute little baby quilt on September 22's blob post, and didn't give Kudos to the Quilter who made it.  I did not make this one, my fellow Bee member, and Quilt Guild President Pat made this one.

I haven't worked on a single thing this week, I have had fun times with my Grandson's who have moved to PA.  I am sad for me, but it's really not that far away, and me, and my man will be driving to visit them often.
Here are some highlights of the fun four days I had with them. Sunday afternoon football put on hold (the Home Team is out of town this week) for some backyard fun!
Autumn evening fun
Then Monday, and the big boy off to school, and little brother, and I (Nan) spent a fun day at the playground.  Ate our lunch there, met a same age little boy to play with, then nap during the car ride to pick up big brother from school.  A gorgeous Autumn afternoon with such warm temperatures deserves a cool treat.

Rita's is the best!

Tuesday brought another gorgeous day, and warm temperatures, and much of the same as the day before without the Rita's.  We went to Joann's where I was hoping to find fabric with Am. Bulldogs on it.  I did not find the fabric, but we did have so much fun admiring the Halloween decorations!  The bowl with the motion sensor grabbing hand, what a hoot!  Little brother was scared of it, and put on his most brave "Hulk Smash" to scare it back, and he kept wanting to go back and see it again!  Home for yummy dinner, (made by yours truly), and fruit pops on the porch waiting for Mommy to come take them to their new home.  

So today for me, I will sew at some point.  I did join Fall Mug Rug Swap, and my swap partner is from Canada.  Looking forward to getting to know her, and swap with her.  

Happy Piecing, and thank you for reading a "sad" Nan's thoughts.
