Jeepers, I did not expect to be gone from the blog for so long. Hubby actually had viral pneumonia so I've been taking care of him. He's finally to the point of not coughing a lung up and can do a few things (light things) before he tires out. One of our sons came to do some farm chores for us that needed to be done before winter came. It's good that we had our wood cut and stacked for the year, but we had rain barrels to empty out so they won't freeze this winter and various odds and ends that Jim just couldn't do and I couldn't do by myself. A huge weight went off Jim's shoulders to have all those chores done and marked off his list. I am so ever thankful for our son coming to help.
I was looking for a needle to do some embroidery work on a quilt block and came upon this pack of needles in my sewing room. I have no idea where I might have gotten them from, but I was happy to have found them. I was getting the Sew Sampler Box from the Fat Quarter Shop and it may have been in one of the boxes. I don't do a lot of hand work but I do have to say that these needles are wonderful to use. I thought needles were all the same, but I now believe otherwise. When I get the top done I will show what I did, but not yet :)
I can't believe that Thanksgiving is just around the corner. So much to be thankful for here that is for sure.
