Phase of the Moon

I haven't blogged for a couple of weeks. I just wasn't in the mood for much of anything. I remember once when we were on vacation in Arkansas visiting family I overheard two ladies talking. One was telling the other about a friend of theirs who packed up her belongings and left her husband. She said, in her slow southern drawl, "It must be the phase of the moon!" Ever since then my husband and I joke about that. I have been having the blahs and just not feeling motivated -- so it must have been the phase of the moon for me.

Gary and I went on a ride Thursday afternoon. It looks so different in the mountains with all of the leaves off the trees. It was a nice afternoon going up the mountain, but on the way down we were freezing.This is my granddaughter, Eden. She was a mermaid for Halloween. After I took the picture I jokingly asked her which one was her. She was so serious when she pointed herself out to me.
I've been making some burp clothes. My sisters have been making them and I thought they were so cute. They are flannel on one side and chenille on the other.

I saw this journal cover in a magazine I bought and had to try it. You just use a composition notebook.

I've been working on the buzz saw quilt. I have 21 blocks done and need 9 more. I'm making it a king size for my son Jon. He just got engaged last week to Bekkah! We are all so happy and excited. They are getting married on December 29th.
