An occasional update

The weather is confused. It's October, and yet the temperatures have been in the 70s for the last few weeks. If it's going to do that I wish it would wait until Halloween, so the kids can go trick-or-treating without winter coats on over their costumes for a change!

Dan and Julia had planned to go to a heathen gathering in Duluth this weekend, but he injured his back on Thursday so that didn't work out, and he's been home trying to rest.

Have heard recently that the Troth's lore program will be starting up next year, which is exciting news. It's absolutely something I'm interested in, but I have the sense to know that I'm absolutely not up for it right now. Someone please kick me if it looks like I'm trying to change my mind on that, okay? :)

So I've been quilting some; till working on that red-and-white sampler (hey, it's a king-sized quilt, even finishing the quilting up takes time, and I've still got a side and a half to do), but I've got the next one 9a swap quilt in homespun plaids) ready to go when I'm done. Actually, when the red one is done I'm going to bind it, and then bind the other two unbound quilts that have been waiting. Did I mention I'm using purchased bias binding for these now? Yeah, I suck. But it's awesome binding, and made from marbled fabric, so it's very forgiving stuff.

I've also been doing some writing, off and on, posting what I come up with so I guess you knew that.

Heh. Here we always designed our costumes to go over the jackets if we needed to (or on occasion planned a jacket as part of it). ;-)

That'll actually work this year for elder daughter, who is going as a body collector--younger daughter's kitty fairy deal probably won't be as adaptable. :( And since they stopped allowing costumes at school a few years ago, trick-or-treating is really their only chance to dress up.

hey can you drop me that link? I am probably overloaded right now- but I want to take a look at it. I am going to be doing some quiet work later- so...

I don't think there is one right now--the program isn't scheduled to open until sometime next year.

But I know I'll be tempted, and I also know that right now I shouldn't sign up for anything else, so...
