How Cool is this...A chicken pin-cushion. I really can use this more than fabric...he can go with me on my next retreat. I have several of the grab it magnetic pin cushions but they don't always stay in tack in the bottom of a tote bag.
The gift that got away.....
Can't wait to see these in next year's quilt show!!

My new chimney cabinet is in place and the shelves are in. Dad made it from Maple, but we both had a time getting it to stain even. I tried first, but it was like bad quilting on a well constructed quilt top. He sanded it down and tried again using several different types of stain before we settled on paint. Its all ready for linens and extra toliet paper for the half bath!
Zorro inspected it already and said it would be fine where it is.

This country has made a lot of progress since I was here as an intern in 1989. Our textile plant will be intstalling a bio-fuel plant here next year to burn cocunut shells and other agricultural by products instead of bunker oil. We have eaten at the plant the last two days but may venture out for dinner s0 maybe I will get some tostones tonight!

I took a few days off work, and quilted at my semi-annual Quilt retreat, went to a Laidies Holiday dinner with Go Postal's sister....and finished off with a hike up Hawksbill to celebrate Dairy Queen's birthday!
The Ladies Dinner was a great way to kick off the Holiday season and remind me not to get caught up in every little detail preparing for the gift giving, meal planning, etc...but to remember the real meaning of this special time of year.

This is the best mountain bike I have ever owned! The wide tires, great suspension and women's fit....helps me ride better than ever. We checked out the 12 miles of singletrack trails at Lake Norman State park on Sunday and had a great fall afternoon. The trails there have several banked turns, lots of undulating sections and very few obstacles. On the last six miles, Dairy Queen and I kept the same pace as the guys...thanks in part to my Trek Fuel 9 wsd.

Here they are...the closest thing to live Dinosaurs we will ever see. Buddy was grining the entire time. Little Man had his blanket to cover his head when things got too scary (like when the Momma T-Rex came out to defend her baby) The lights and robotic technology really made this a great show for both the young and the young at heart.

I am Banjo, I know most of you have heard about me by now. I am supposed to be keeping mice away from Dad's cabin. I have a lot of fun around here, there are all kinds of barns to explore. So far I have pulled off three collars so they put one on me this time that will not pull off.
For fun I like to chase bugs and race you to the porch. I will walk ahead of you and flip over on my back be warned its a trap! As soon as you touch my tummy its ON!
Dad gives me a little canned food each night so I know where home is. (I already have him wrapped around by paw)
