A Little Sister Time!

Only a few more weeks until my little granddaughter will be born.  With that pending (major) event, my sister Isabel asked me to come and visit her this past weekend.  She wanted me to bring supplies to make Christmas cards.  She thought if I didn't come now, there would be grandbaby oogling, Richard would be home for his visit and then the holidays and all the activities that go with them.  So, she was right.  It was now or never.  Big sisters are so smart.  :o)
Isabel lives in beautiful Ojai.  When I go there, I drive the back way through windy roads because it's so beautiful and picturesque.
There is this nice spot at the top of the mountains where it overlooks the valley.  I've seen just about every time I go visit.  I think it's just beautiful.  It was a beautiful weekend with warm weather and blue skies.  

This is the Christmas card I will send out this year.  I CASED it from a card on splitcoaststampers.  I changed it just an itty bitty bit because I didn't have the same greeting stamp or the little slider for the ribbon.  I like it though and added little rhinestones to add a little somethin'.  If you want to see the original, you can see the original here
Isabel had a lot more cutting to do than me so I had some time to work on a little Halloween goodie that I had also found on the internet.  It was on a blog here.  She references the original post so you can see a few different samples if you want.  I was going to give these to my sewing buddies but with Halloween falling on Thursday, our sewing night, I won't see them so I gave them to the neighbor kids.  Lucky kids!!!  lol
And last night I finished up the little table runner I started from fabric I got up in Lake Arrowhead a few weeks ago.  I made this one smaller than the sample in the store because the borders were so big.  I think I have enough fabric to make another one.  Woohoo!  Tonight I got it sandwiched and ready to quilt since we had very few Trick-or-Treaters.  Ashley took care of the kids at the door so I could get it layered together.  Hopefully, I'll get it quilted this weekend.

Off to bed.  Where does the time go???
