To thank him for being so wonderful I baked him some Pumpkin Monkey Bread. Lucky for me he loves it when I cook AND he loves anything pumpkin or spice.
Fall also means the annual Franklinton Parish Fair with my in-laws and football. We spent the day with my in-laws at the fair last Wednesday. The fair is adorable. Nowhere near the size of the Alameda County Fair I used to go to with my family, but it still has everything you need or want from a fair: quilts, preserves, vendors, garden clubs, student projects, and livestock.
Last Sunday, after Tulane Symphony rehearsal, Bran and I went to the Colts vs Saints game at the Superdome. Oh, I'm sorry it's now the "Mercedes-Benz Superdome". We got to the Superdome about an hour and a half before the game started. I like getting to the games early because we can get into the parking lot easily, get our game hotdogs and eat 'em before I start to be worried that the Jumbo-Tron will somehow catch me stuffing a hotdog down my throat for all to see, stalk TV sports casters without a crowd (I see you Bob Costas), and people watch. Oh, I love a good people watch. Our tickets for this game also came with passes to the new club level at the Superdome. So we took a little walk and checked out the elite club level, where we were impressed by the public areas and not so impressed with the $14.00 Bloody Marys. However, it was a damn good Bloody Mary. It wasn't a really exciting game though - we stomped the Colts at 62-7.
What's better than a quilt in the afternoon of a crisp fall day? Nothing - and Mr. Kitty agrees.
I love how the quilt looks like stained glass from the backside.
My California trip is coming up fast - only a couple more days before I leave! I'll be super busy for the 10 days I'm in California and hope to spend some of that time quilting/crafting with Jim. I've bundled up my vintage sheet hourglass blocks and will take them with me. If nothing else to show Jim, but if we get a chance to sew I'll work on completing that quilt top. He mentioned he's got a big heavy quilt he'd like to get tied - so we may have our own little personal quilting bee and tie that baby up for him. :)
