This past week we had a house full of company. Our oldest daughter and her husband arrived on Sunday. It was her birthday so we had lots of family in and out all week until they left on Thursday. Over the weekend we sort of just collapsed and stayed home and I actually got back into the sewing room to finish up a couple more projects.I finally got my skinny quilt finished. The beginning of this project started at the end of August in this post Skinny Quilt. I used a variety of woven stripes, Oatshotts and a suede finished cotton. I had them for ages in my stash so decided to give them a try and they blended really well together.

SOME FINISHED PROJECTS
Last week after two years I finally had the opportunity to attend the Pacific International Quilt Show in Santa Clara, California. My guild provides a bus for the event and I joined 35 other ladies for the day. Lots of wonderful quilts shown and great vendors as well. I took lots of pictures for inspiration. I had my list of things to look for and managed to find and purchase all of them.I finished my daughter's birthday gift this past week. That and a gift certificate for Chico's to go with it; now we are all ready for them to come for a few days this week to celebrate in person.I finished the center portion of my Alex Anderson paper pieced project. I am a bit behind now with four Kaleidoscope blocks and four New York Beauty blocks to work on. I may be behind on the paper pieced project, but I have finally finished my bird quilt. It has sat for a good year ready for quilting. I finally managed to get that done and got it bound this past week.
CONFESSIONS OF A FABRIC ADDICT

PUMPKINS & CHARITY QUILT GIVEAWAY
Last week I won a half yard of fabric at my local quilt store on their Bingo game. You have to take your card in and show them it and then decided on your free half yard of fabric. Well, that means you do a bit of shopping. With all the Blogs online full of wonderful pumpkin projects I found I could not resist picking up some pretty fabrics for a project or two.Our oldest daughter plans on being here visiting for a few days later this month. Her birthday is on the 21st, so I though it would be fun to make her a runner and celebrate in person.

PINEAPPLES, BASKETS, AND BINGO
Back to a normal way of life at last. Zoey our puppy's drama with her spay ordeal is over. Staples came out last week and we are back taking our walks every morning. The Bar Mitzvah, luncheon afterwards, and party in the evening is over. Everything went beautifully and we can all breathe again.
I finished last weeks Alex Anderson sampler project assignment. These Pineapple blocks were tedious. Thank goodness there are only two.
