All of you who have not had your mammogram this year, while you are reading this, pick up your phone, call your dr. and make that appointment to have it done. I am an 8 year survivor of breast cancer. Mine was discovered on a mammogram. I was one of the lucky ones, mine was discovered early. Statistically one in seven women will get breast cancer sometime in their lives. When you go to your guild meetings keep it in mine, that chances are that one in seven in that group could have had or will have breast cancer. And ladies be sure to tell your husbands, brothers, uncles, cousins and whom ever that one in one thousand men also get breast cancer.
Hope all is well.................

What is new???? Not much here. Things are about the same. Everyone headed out this morning for Market at Houston. I didn't go. I am going to miss all the fun, but I am going to be richer. That place is very dangerous for the pocket book. For those of you who don't know they have Sample Spree on Friday night. Temptation, temptation, it will part you from the contents of your wallet.
It looks like rain, but it is not predicted. It is still warm here - 83 now. It would actually be good if we did get some rain. We have not had more than a few drops all month. October is usually dry.
For those of you who like English history. I am reading /listening on CD (while I quilt) to a book by Alison Weir. It is "Innocent Traitor." It is about Lady Jane Grey. It had to be tough to be royalty back in the 15th/16th century. Those people were cold.
Hope all is well on your end.

The fabric to the side, is fabric that I have auditioned for the next compass. The fabric around the compass is the fabric that I am going to use as background around the compasses.

The sweater has an interesting pattern. The border I changed a little bit. I didn't like the way they had done it so I did it Sharie's way.
Not a lot new here, no shop hops to go on. Houston is coming up soon but I have not made up my mind about going. It is roughly a three hour drive from here. The Circle plans on going for 2 nights. Sounds like fun but I am sure it would be a costly trip and you know what, there is absolutely nothing that I need. You say go and don't buy anything. You are out of your mind. You haven't been to Houston. There is no way you can go to Houston and not buy lots and lots of things that you don't need. I have tried not to buy the things that I don't need. It just is not going to happen. But don't be surprised at the end of the month, I have decided to go to Houston.
One more picture of my kittie kats. They are so cute. They follow me around everywhere. Smokey is laying on my project boxes. I was getting ready to go sew. Both of them (JAC and Smokey) just had to know what I was doing.

Hope all is well with you.
