And the Beat Goes On...

Blog Hop Party with Give-AwaysThe blog hop organized by Michelle at the Quilting Gallery continues all week, so hop on over and check it out.So far it's been pretty amazing. I can't believe how many new folks have visited my blog as a result. But even more fun, I've been working my way through Michelle's list of nearly 250 bloggers that are participating with give-aways. What a treat to find so many talented quilters who blog. 
It's a good thing that it does go on all week, because it will probably take me that long to visit every blog, and the blogs of all the new visitors to my blog. One note: I should have mentioned this before, but I need you to provide a way to contact you if you are the winner. If you aren't using you google account (which will automatically provide a link to your profile) leave an e-mail address in your comment.

As for other happenings around my house, this was the weekend to put up the tree (still not finished) and to wrap gifts that have to head off to points North and West (still not wrapped). Sigh. 
But we did finally get all of the leaves up from the front yard. We mulched and composted bags and bags and still ended up with 10 paper yard waste bags at the street to go to the city's composting effort. 
At some point you really do have to admit that the composting pile is full and the impromptu pile in the middle of the garden has grown beyond reason :-)

and this silly little rose just won't call it quits even though Winter officially starts next week.Too much news about the garden? Not to worry. Tomorrow I'll share a neat new ornament quilters can make with the stash they have around the house, so check back!
