First of all lets get back to the stitching goal thing... I had to let that drop for September. If I had one stitching goal at all last month would of been just to get in a few stitches. Which I did.
October Stitching Goals
- Finish K is for Kitty by Prarie Schooler
- Stitch the last of my quilt blocks

I baked cookies the night before... so I had to share them with my friends!
My Big Soft Ginger Cookies were a hit!!!
I've really enjoyed being able to pick up my stitching again, and make some fantastic progress. Friday night I put the first stitches in this piece, K is for Kitty by Prarie Schooler. This is for Naan, she wants to make a quilt out of the Prarie Schooler Alphabet Charts she was too proud to ask for help but boy once word went around we've all been chipping in and taking on a block! I picked this one not only because I love kitty cats, but I think she's going to look like my wee Zeus when she's done. I'll have to do some side-by-side pictures at the end. I want to have this piece finished for the November Timberhouse Retreat!
I have been picking away at Enchantment of Winter as well and here's an updated picture for everyone. I'm giving this one a bit of a break so I can get some of the smaller pieces that have been piling up out of the way.
My Mum is doing great and getting better and stronger every day and much happier now that she's at home. Its so nice to have life moving back into the realm of "normal" that's normal for me... which isn't really that normal at all! LOL! I have too much fun to be "normal".
