Greetings from the Pacific NW!
The weather has been mild with a few days rain and now sun and clouds.

The first week of October we visited The Museum of Glass in Tacoma, WA. Artist Albert Paley's art in glass and steel was showing in the main exhibit hall. His work is fabulous and amazing.
Dale Chihuly's work will open in the main exhibit hall October 14, we'll have to get back to see that of course.

I've had a little more time to finish up a pincushion made from free motion practice scraps I was going to throw away. But I looked at all the stitches and texture and decided I had to put those scraps to good use! I've made a thread catcher/quilted basket and the pincushion so far and there'll be more.

What with being busy sightseeing and helping with my grandson, I do manage to get some time for quilts and sewing on the side. 
And of course remembering to be thankful in everything.

Have a great week and I'll be by to visit!
