Good Times

I thought that I would share a few good things that I am happy about right now.

1. Our Fall Book Fair is over!! We are all worn out! Our Media Specialist, Sherry (who is going through chemo and radiation for colon cancer) is doing great!! Her tumor was removed during the summer. She worked everyday of the Book Fair. She was super happy when we did a tentative count of the money..we sold about 17,000 dollars in books!! The school library will get a nice percentage of that for new books and media supplies!

2. I'm excitied that I have signed up for a "stay at home" quilt retreat. Susan at Blackberry Creek is hosting. It starts Oct. 12 thru the 14. I have a bit of a break from the library so I hope to spend some time sewing. You should check out her sweet blog and sign up!

3. Kristie is back!!! Kristie's blog Cowgirl Quilter, was one of the first blogs that I started reading. I fell in love with her beautiful scrappy quilts, her mountain life and her sweet attitude! She also helped me get my blog started. I wanted to start a blog to be able to show her my quilts! Kristie had a nasty fall awhile back (ouch!!) but she has started her blogging again! I am SO happy that she is on the mend!

This weekend I plan on putting my house back in order (kinda) so that I will be ready to lock myself in my sewing room this week! Have you seen big B's newest pattern set?? It's full of Snowmen and snow "stuff" I bought it and LOVE it!! I really want to make some plans for a little Snowman stitchery!
Have a great weekend!!
