Rainbows and Circles

I hope everyone had a good weekend.  I had a lovely one, I quilted a lot on my nativity and worked on the Amy Butler bag, but even better we got to do some productive domestic things.  We took all the dogs for a lovely walk in the park (Shooter is still not sure about the leash), and I gave the big three a bath.  When we go to my parent's house, Bullett insists on sleeping in their bed with them, so he always needs to have a bath before going.  
On Sunday afternoon one of the groups in the OU school of music was performing Monteverdi's Vespers (that link is not the OU group, but take a listen to see what it's like if you're unfamiliar), and the concert was just lovely.  Very fitting for autumn in my brain.  Excitingly, Mike hung the Christmas lights on Saturday; even though we won't turn them on until after Thanksgiving, the weather was nice Saturday so he thought he'd hang them up.  Super thanks to him for volunteering, because I hate that task.

I also recently received my swap package from the Hoop-La-La swap.  The wonderful Kelie from Craft Nurse Quilt sent me this great rainbow hoop with fun embroidered circles.  I think my favorite part is the embroidered script (Love to Quilt).  She changed colors every few letters and it's so me!  It looks great hanging with my other swap quilts in the studio.  Many many thanks Kelie!

I'm on track to finish the nativity enough to bind in the car on the way to New Mexico.  I'm not sure if I'll get any pictures up before I go, so if not, wishing you all a blessed and gracious Thanksgiving!
