Wish List

Do your kids ask you what you want for Christmas?  Mine do.  I always tell them, "hugs and kisses"!  My Dad would always answer with "three good girls". What parent doesn't want that! Both are such good answers to a tough question.

This year I am telling my kids I would like a hot glue gun, and a staple gun.  Something I really need.  But they aren't too happy getting their mom a necessity item!

So I thought I would share with you some ideas for you to share with your family.  Here is just the littlest start to your very own Wish List.

#1 Hobbs Tuscany Wool Batting
It's the very best.  "The ultimate quilt batting. Quilts magnificently by hand or machine. Breathes naturally. Washable."  Queen size $46.99

#2 Snail Tape Measure
Perfect size to carry in your purse.  Perfect for a Christmas stocking or Secret Sister gift. Plus it's just super cute in super cute colors!  $2.99

Come back soon as our list of gift ideas will grow.  All items are available at SKJ while supplies last.

pioneer quilters guild

I had a booth last weekend at the Pioneer Quilters Guild, Quilt Show.  It was the best show ever!  I saw a lot of familiar faces, and made some new friends.  Plus, there were people all lined up out the door on Saturday just waiting to come in.

When the show comes around next year, you should plan to attend.

I can't do a show like this by myself.  Thanks to my hub for helping me with the hauling.  And thank you to my mom, Donna, for being with me in my booth.  She was great company!

day out

The weather here in Lincoln, California is still gorgeous, high 70 degree days.  But with cold nights, we are seeing the leaves change color and drop from the trees.  It is perfect fall weather.

So we took the day and went to Gram's Ranch.  The kids did some archery, drove around an ATV, got muddy, and we had a bit of a picnic.

Are you a Pinterest fiend?? I am. Cannot get enough.  I have been pretty good lately though.  You won't believe what I have done....

I have made something that I have previously pinned.  I think I'll share:

Half Apron using Halloween Fabric 
and of course I have modified mine.

Made the best Apple Pie Cake - Martha recipe of course.
It was gone in 3 days.

Pulled Pork crock pot recipe.  That I needed a Cold Slaw recipe for.

And I thought there was more.....

What do you Pin and Make?
