October Quilting Accomplishments

October was good to me! I feel like I got a lot accomplished and yet I only had 3 days off workall month, so I was busy too. I quilted 101 hours in October! There was only one day I didn't do any quilting, because I worked and then went to my parents house.

I finished most of the things on my October Quilting list or at least worked on them, so I'm proud of myself.

That should keep me busy through November! Next weekend is Hunter's Widow Weekend and mom and I planning a quilt retreat. We are both making Loralie Design Quilts. We don't have a pattern yet, but we're going to make the tops next weekend. We both have Sun. & Mon. off so it'll be a nice long weekend. Paul will be spending the whole first week of hunting season with my little brother, so I'll have lots of sewing time! I'm really looking forward to this little break and lots of quilting time.
