I just had to . . .

If any of you follow Kathie at
you know that recently she has been exploring some color options for her little quilts using a Windmill block.

My momentum had been building each time I opened her blog and saw another wonderful set of blocks she had made. I was so inspired last week, that while I patiently waited for the inspector to come and take a look at our new furnace, I put together a few scrappy blocks of my own. 
I have never pieced this block before, and have to say that they are definitely addicting. 

Thank you Kathie for all of the inspiration!

The month of October is upon us.
Last weekend we had our Garage Sale on Saturday. 
The temperature rose higher than expected, so we ended up closing an hour earlier than planned. Our driveway is on the west side of the house, which can heat up pretty fast when the sun makes it way around to that side in the afternoon.
My neighbor brought over a few things to add to the stash. 
My youngest Son stopped over to help and join in the fun.
We enjoyed the people, and all the stories that everyone is always so eager to share. We were very satisfied with all the items that were re-purposed. While what was left behind we quickly whisked off to our local Goodwill and Habitat for Humanity Rebuild centers.
All in all, I would call the day a success!
