Oh yeah, one more thing...I need a craft idea that Kindergartener's can do with fabric (so no needles, sewing machines, etc...). I have a whole stack of Christmas fabric that I don't plan on using in a quilt and Ben's K teacher and I are trying to come up with a craft to let the kids use it ~ any ideas???? Thanks!!

Phew....where has October gone?
I can't believe October is more than half way gone. Where has this entire year gone?! I absolutely love having Jason home (he has worked four days in the last month ~ NO, that's not typical!), but my computer time takes a serious hit when hubby's around! Being completely inspired by Amandajean and Camille and their tutorials I thought maybe, just maybe I might be able to quilt on my machine. So I cut out a small square of scrap fabric and tried my hand at meandering. Now, you may remember that last Mother's Day I got a class at Skunk Bay quilts to get signed off on their long arm. When I was playing around on her machine (oh....five months ago now?) I could meander like nobody's business. Moving the machine ~ its way easier than moving a quilt. I'm gonna need more practice here!
I also have cut the rest of the fabric for the preschool quilts that I'm making. I should be able to piece these together rather quickly now. I'm tying them, so I can take a few evenings to relax in front of the TV and get those done.
