Pumpkins & Detours!

 Detour One
Off to Vermont! It was time for the annual clean-up for the upcoming ski season. After a few days of cleaning, laughing, stacking wood, eating and shopping. We were home!

 It was the first day they could ski at the top.


Detour Two
Day after returning from Vermont our son was preparing to drive back to Florida for more Helicopter Piloting training. He got a call that a helicopter was being sent to pick him up--& for him to fly it down. Hubby couldn't come with me, so a friend jumped on a road trip! Wahooo!  Thelma and Louise had nothing on us! A few hours later we were hitting quilt stores in the state of Florida after a detour in Georgia! Ha-ha. And Thanks Geri for all the suggestions (Our Quilt Travel Informant).

Doing the pre-flight check list.

Detour Three
OK, I admit it! We left our cloths in Florida--in my sons car so we could get the fabric home! I chuckle when thinking about the TSA-Officers x-raying all the fabric and no cloths.  True Quilters Never Give Up--Right? We had a bumpy plane ride home--knitting was therapeutic for me-
but poor Louise didn't feel well with the turbulence.

Thelma & Louise arrive to Florida!

Look at that Happy Face!

My view from the lounge chair!

One of the best places ever!

Detour Four
We based our return on a prior commitment. After arriving home with fabric in tow, the next morning--was off to the Princeton-Yale Football game (my friends daughter attends "Harry PotterVille"--I mean Princeton). It was a great day of football, dinner and a play. At this point I was beyond consciousness--and have no idea where the pictures went to!


So with so many detours in a matter of days that infringed on customer and personal quilt time. I have been Longarming non-stop since my the return and I am keeping my finger crossed
 that I stay on schedule!!

I love that my family & friends take Detours which allows for
 these crazy things to happen.
Cheers To Detours!
 Pumpkins &  Tom the Turkey
 I am the lucky recipient of this adorable mason jar lid pumpkin. 
My friend Denise (aka Louise) is the creator!
You can see how she made it Here at her and her daughters blog.
 Elena made these cuties to take to her daughters for Thanksgiving.
She found these on Pinterest.  
And here is Tom the Turkey that Pam made at Debbie's yesterday. 
I missed all the fun since I am still quilting away!
Happy Thanksgiving 
Till We Quilt Again,
