Over the past few days I've been doing a lot of napping as I continue to recuperate from whatEVER this bug is that I came down with on Sunday night when we got home from G's 50th Class Reunion. My constant companion has been our 12 year old Katie who is a Siamese-Tabby mix. She LOVES naps and is a good foot warmer too!

I took this picture of her last evening when she was waiting for me to finish watching "Numbers" so she could go to bed. I don't think that's the tightest ball I've ever seen her curled up into, but she certainly has all her paws tucked up for sure. Our days and evenings have seemed much cooler this week. The sun has been shining brightly most days, but the house is staying cooler than the outside temperatures. I only know this because I've seen the neighbors outside in shorts while I have been huddling inside in jeans and a sweatshirt!

I think I must be getting better. Since I'm on antibiotics and shouldn't be contagious, I went to our local CrazyQuilt group's October meeting this morning where a good time was had by all I think. I would have hated to miss the meeting. It's always the highlight of my month.

We are really a varied group of stitchers. I took one of my Chocolage stitchery blocks to work on purely because it was the simplest thing I could take. Around the table the other stitcher's were working on 1) Laura: a lovely Fall block with some nice peacock feather pre-made appliques she said came from Jo-Ann Fabrics, (ahem....I MAY need to go shopping!) 2) Sandy: a nice cq block for a grandson that will feature his interests of baseball, football and fishing, 3) Beth: the beginnings of a small tree skirt/table topper in victorian jewel tones, 4) Andrea: a pretty new block with wonderful red satin stitching just done, 5) Pat: a "very orange" fiber art block and 6) Fran, the hostess this month, was doing the final applique work stitching down the patches of her latest totally hand pieced crazyquilt block. As usual Fran served up a lot of delights. I love going to her home for our October meeting because she decorates to the hilt for Halloween and always serves herbal teas & lots of Halloween goodies! The herbal tea felt great on my throat today. The Hershey Candy Corn Kisses weren't bad either!

This is the first post I have ever made directly from the blogger dashboard. I even put Katie's picture in and moved it once! I have always done every post from the Flickr site because it's so easy. You just click on a picture you have in your sets there and then click on "blog this". However, you can't put the pictures just anywhere - they are always at the top of your blog post. With this newly (for me) learned method I can add a picture right here of the doll quilt top I finished yesterday!
Stitch On!

I'm glad you're feeling better and great job on the post!

I'm finally back and blogging and commenting again. I've missed it! :-) (can't wait to catch up with you and your stitching).
