I really don’t have much to report. Football season is over, at least for the college, but not apparently for high school playoffs. We may be hosting some games where we will have to do concessions. I am really over it.
This month I did get to have a day off to join Denny and family at a Texas A & M game. My nephews are alum so Zach bought a package of different games that he and guests can attend. What an experience! Huge stadium and campus!

Last week, my cousin sent a picture of his mom in the nursing home. Some of us cousins gave him a hard time about the drab blankets on her bed. A couple of days later, Phyllis went to see her and told me she needs a quilt! I had a flimsy on hand, only lap size, but it is faster to add borders than start from scratch. It uses all Kansas Troubles (which I still have so much of!) so I added a side border and two top/bottom borders for more length. I had a few blocks that Kim and I made back in 2009 for a sampler quilt that I put on the back. I think all the blocks but two have been used now. Unfortunately not in any of my quilts. But I can hear Aunt Burdie saying “Look at all those small pieces!” I miss talking quilting with her. It went in the mail today to Jeanette, who will quilt and bind it for me and mail it to my cousin to deliver.
The pieced back – I am never too particular of the backing as it is the back of the quilt, a close up of some of the blocks, and the lap quilt, pre added borders.
It is Thanksgiving week! Tomorrow I will head to my brothers for a couple of days, then home to get started on a Vikings quilt! Hoping it will be a Christmas present!
