Don't ask God to make your life easier, ask Him to make you a stronger person.

Finally back at home . . . . .

I had good intentions of showing all the shows I have gone to and the people I have met but I seem to keep forgetting to take the camera with me.

Since my last post, I have been to the Quilters of South Carolina retreat where I was a teacher and a vendor (and the vendor coordinator).  I taught a simple penny rug project with double stack and triple stack pennies as well as tongues and double tongues.  It was a full class with 15 wonderful students.

This past weekend was a quilt show in beautiful New Bern, North Carolina.  Although New Bern is located on the coast, the hurricane didn't impact us as bad as other parts of the Atlantic Coast.  But we still had to pack up the booth and load it up in 20+ mph winds and rain.  We were soaked by the time we finished!

While I was in that part of the state, our family had a baby shower for The Married One and the Son-In-Law.  They are having a girl that is due Christmas week.  Dear Hubby and I are over the moon!

They both are so happy!
The mommy and the grandma (me!)

And finally, since the weather has turned, I picked the rest of the peppers and basil left in the garden.  I just love the colors!  Most of them will be frozen to use in soups and chili this winter.  Except maybe those habaneros that you see in the front of the pile.  I don't know why Dear Hubby grows so many!

Thank you! . . . . .

Thanks to all my customers today at the Cabarrus quilt show for your patience while I cussed under my breath at Intuit. It turns out that it wasn't my computer or the wifi connection or the operator (me!) but Intuit's website was down all across the country for most of the day. Whatever was broke is now fixed and all is right with the world!

And speaking of Cabarrus quilt show . . . . . 

Tomorrow (Saturday) is the second and last day of the Cabarrus Quilters Guild annual quilt show.

The show is held at the Cabarrus Arena and Events Center, 4751 NC Hwy 49 North, Concord, North Carolina.  The show is from 10 am until 5 pm.  Lots of beautiful quilts and bunches of vendors.  Come on out and visit!!

Blessings, Cathi
