"Eventful" Week & 1 Quilt

Autumn is cruising right along, wouldn't you say? We've turned the heat on & are seeing the leaves starting to change colors here in Pennsylvania. 

Since I last wrote my girls have helped keep things "eventful" as I hinted at in the title. 

The younger daughter, Morgan, looked very grown up going to homecoming with a boyfriend this year: 

This at least was a fun thing! Later in the week, Maegan, the older daughter, dropped her phone in a bucket of water, and her car died on her TWICE. Morgan followed up by dropping her phone in the shower. Yep, you read that right... in. the. shower. (And yes I mean while she was IN the shower!)

We just had a generally spastic week. Electronics were on the fritz left & right, our school days weren't going quite as planned, and I was constantly behind schedule on quilting. Just one of those weeks...

I did get this quick quilt worked in before I started on another custom one that isn't done to show yet: 

Baskets & Blocks Top; QUILTED with Leafy Swirl (freehand)

We did manage to leave some time for fun in between the annoyances life was handing us.

Monday the kids carved pumpkins: 

 And Thursday we had a bit of fun with our school day & visited Jen's Pottery Den to paint some pottery. 

We got to browse a used book store nearby too, which is always fun for us bookworms! (not that you look like a worm, Morgan; it's just a figure of speech...heehee)

To end our week, the girls & I went to see Pitch Perfect. Did anyone else see it? I enjoyed it but will have to admit it wasn't *quite* as good as I was expecting. Is it just me?? Or maybe it had more to do with my sour mood that evening (it was a looooong-feeling week.) 

Here's hoping the upcoming week will be slightly more productive...
