Now for those of you that didn't order a kit and are wishing you had, don't panic there are still some kits available. Order today and you'll have it by the weekend - a perfect time for piecing! Fall Mystery Block of the Week kit
I took a break from sewing today to go to the movies - I was in need of movie popcorn and Diet Coke - and saw "The Light Between Oceans." Ladies, grab some friends (and your tissues) and go check out this movie. It didn't get the highest reviews, but then I tend not to be influenced by reviews. It is a chick flick and after a summer of so-so movies, this one was wonderful.
On a personal note: I would like to thank everyone who worried about the safety of those in the path of Hermine. As many of you know, I live in St. Petersburg, FL and was quite fortunate to only have to deal with heavy rain (12") and wind. My family is safe, but unfortunately not everyone impacted by Hermine can say that, so please keep these people in your thoughts as they recover from this storm. Safekeeping to everyone on the East Coast.
Until next time, happy quilting,
