On that note, this morning I took a look at Lee's Summit's Oktober Fest. Not very big, although they did have locally made crafts in the craft tents. I was totally disappointed by the lack of funnel cakes! I could really have used a funnel cake this morning!
I have done a little quilting in the past couple of weeks. I have all the bag pieces together and have machine quilted two of them (two I've done by hand with big stitches). I've never really had any luck with machine quilting but I used my quilting foot (well, duh!) and they went quite quickly and nicely. I expect I'll be doing the rest this way as I'd like to finish them and use them this Christmas!
I spent the afternoon cleaning the house as Rob and Tanya are having guests tomorrow. It looks better than it has in a really long time but there is still much cleaning to be done before the holidays. My office/sewing room looks like a hurricane hit and the extra room (where I do hand work and watch tv) is full of trim, tools, and all the stuff I couldn't figure out where to put!
Tomorrow, I'm off to Columbia to deliver a bed to Scott and Bri. My Dad no longer needed it but Scott and Bri have empty bedrooms. Next time I go down for an over night I will have a real bed!
