Thursday Thoughts

These are my grandcats Jax & JMeow. My daughter texted me this picture last week and it just cracks me up every time I look at it! JMeow lived with us last year while my daughter lived in a no-pet apartment and it's been pretty quiet around here without his big personality and energy. Jax joined the family in July when she moved and they are inseparable. When they come to visit Tucker they all co-exist quite well.
Trick or Treat!
We see plenty of deer around our yard but this was a first!
Post Meal Nap?
While trying to stay UFO focused I've dutifully been clicking delete on my quilting sale emails... but when the Fat Quarter Shop had Halloween fabric 50% off last weekend my delete key got stuck. I'd forgotten how adorably packed their goodies are! I've pinned and bookmarked so many cute Halloween projects this fall, this will be a real treat to use sometime next year.
Do Not Open Until 2013...
I've been a long time member of the HGTV Quilting Forum. There are so many talented & genuinely nice women on that board and it's been great to get back in touch with them after my 3 year hiatus. They have started doing Friday night PJ Parties where a hostess picks a project and teaches us how to do it online. Last Friday we made Artist Trading Cards (ATCs). I had a blast pulling out my crazy quilting bins and creating this 2.5" by 3.5" card, I've made a few of these for swaps before and they are just plain fun.
My 1st Yo-Yo!


  1. love your spooky gonna make ?

  2. I have grand cats, too!! And I bought Halloween fabric at the 50% off, too! What a great deal!!

  3. Jax & JMeow look so funky in their sweaters! Thimble Cat is seriously jealous...

    I stayed away from the FQS Halloween Sale. Didn't even take a single peek. Still deciding whether I should be proud of my willpower or smack myself for missing a great sale!

  4. Wow, that cat picture really makes me laugh! I cant imagine putting a cat in a sweater. Trying to get my dog to model a sweater is rough enough :)

  5. Jax and JMeow look super cute, whenever I put anything on my cat he just falls over.

  6. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, and for giving me the Debbie Mumm info!

    Have a great day. :)

  7. Cute cats. I can't believe I missed that sale at FQS!

  8. I'd love to have deer in my backyard! Do they scare away rabbits? Do they play well with dogs? Teehee!
