Fox and Geese didn’t see a lick, Miranda Day Bag is coming along, charity quilt #1 was done with a panto, a squirrel was finished, those little Halloween scraps were enough for another placemat with some other helpers, and a 2nd charity quilt was done with FMQ.

  2. WOOFA-Miranda Day Bag
  3. Squirrel-Definitely a SQUIRREL!
  4. Finish the placemat
  5. Use up some of the 4 yards I bought yesterday!! Ack!
  6. Funeral for my cousin

This photo was taken Halloween 1993, my cousin M on the left, and his then girlfriend, now wife, D on the right. We had a Halloween party and I told the guests that Fred and Wilma Flintstone were inviting them to the party. My cousin thought that meant they had to dress like a Flintstone character, LOL! So he showed up as BamBam and D was Pebbles.

The best part of the evening was the story he told about getting there. We lived in a rural area and he had never been to the house before. So he needed to stop to ask for directions because he got kind of lost. So he went into the only open business he could find, a liquor store, Bwahahaha!! Oh, and we had a freak snow storm that year. So there he was in a winter jacket with his BamBam costume on. I assume the owner understood since it was Halloween! Oh, and he had the loudest laugh, pure joy! It often got him into trouble with his Mom, because it happened at some inappropriate times. I am sure his Mom is getting on him in Heaven because he is likely laughing too loud! We just lost his Mom in August, so this has been a very hard time for us.

A knitter, sewist, quilter, mom, wife, and doodle lover!, but not necessarily in that order. Just ask my family, they'll tell you who comes first. Psst, it's the doodles!

  1. Boy I just got a catch in my throat reading about your cousin. What a void he will leave. 😦
    What is the log cabin block? I love it!
    Thanks for linking to To Do Tuesday! 😀

  2. Hi Chris. I am so sorry to hear about your cousin. I had really hoped that things would turn out differently for now. What a great sense of humor he had!! And what perfect costumes they were wearing. I would have LOVED to have been in that liquor store when he popped in!! I’m glad you have many good times and laughs to hold close to your heart. The party will continue on in a better venue. I’ll step up the comfort prayers for all your family. R

  3. I’m so sorry about your cousin, Chris. Glad you have good memories and stories to share, though. I love the last of your Halloween scraps becoming one more little quilted thing!

  4. Oh Chris, I’m so sorry to hear about your cousin. Boy, your family has been through the ringer this year. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

  5. LOVE the little log cabin. I am very sorry about your cousin. Hubs lost a friend this week so we’ll be heading to a funeral in a few days as well. (The second of that group of friends to pass away in just a couple years–both just way too young!)

Cat got your tongue?
