Birthday week celebration !

Hi everyone !

I have not posted in awhile because I have been in Las Vegas celebrating my birthday  :-D

We had a wonderful time !

We stayed at the LINQ hotel and took a ride on the  " HIGH ROLLER "

It is 55 stories high 

each cabin holds 40 people

we only had 12 in ours some even have bars in them

It was amazing at the top . What I liked is that it is a 30 minute ride and moved very slowly 

what a view of Las Vegas and the strip 

We also went to see  impressionist Terry Fator

Amazing ventriloquist

I highly recommend this show if you are ever in Las Vegas !!

I have started a new fall quilt before we left . I have already cut all of my pieces and sewn my blocks together just need to lay it out and sew it together.
I will show pictures soon

Scoot quilt

I have been sewing away this past week !

Making some  Christmas gifts and even started my shopping .

Just finished this baby quilt last night just need to sew on the binding !

This fabric line is called " SCOOT " by Riley Blake
Isn't is CUTE !

The backing and binding I used ' OH BOY " by Riley blake.
 Just look at those cute little airplanes !

This is the view outside my kitchen window

and my dining room window
Just love this time of year !!!!

Have you started making Christmas gifts ??

Happy Halloween !

Wishing everyone a Happy & Safe Halloween !

We do not have trick or Treaters in our neighborhood.  I love the country but do miss the little ones coming door to door . I really enjoyed seeing them in costume

Instead our little town of Grass Valley closes off the streets of downtown  during the day and the merchants dress in costume  and hand out candy  while the parents bring their children for treats.
It is quite a site to see .

I have finally decided on a backing fabric for LUCY .

 It is a Fig Tree fabric called "MIRABELLE ". 
Since most of the fabric I used was Fig tree fabric and wanted something in the same soft orange color for the backing.

 I think it works perfectly don't you ?
