A New Look!

Don’t worry – you’re in the right place! I’m even having a hard time believing this is Squash House Quilts! What do you think of my new look? I had The Cutest Blog on the Block do a custom design for me – how fun is this!

So we all know today is Election Day. I’ll be so glad when it’s over! I get a double dose of politics as I work for people who depend on the outcome of political races…the livelihood and well-being of the people we represent is determined by the legislature in our state. Last year we began holding Election Night parties in our office. This year, our director who organizes the party did a really cute job of decorating our large conference room! I thought I would show you a picture.


My husband’s office is also having another party - I told you they use any excuse - did you believe me - LOL? Tomorrow is the monthly birthday party. Everyone who has a birthday in the month of November is recognized on one day. They rotate who is to bring something for each monthly party. My husband gets a goody notice a couple of times a year. Sometimes, depending on how busy the two of us are, he just get’s $20 worth of maple bars, which everyone loves. This time I thought I would make this bar cookie recipe that Meg Hawkey of Crabapple Hill Studio posted on her blog yesterday. Are they ever yummy! Thanks, Meg!

I’m off to the periodontist this morning – wish me well!

I love the decorations. Look at all the neat stars hanging down! That's very fun. Stars on the walls, too. And the neat table sparkly things. Very neat.

And yes indeed the new look at SHQ is fantastic and almost corn-fused me as I thought "hey, is this the right house?" Sure enough, I walked out front to double check the house number and it said SHQ - Quilting, Fly Fishing, Life. Yep, this is it! :)

Great new look! I've always liked that pumpkin piece and it looks so pretty showcased there.

I confiscated one of their freebies to do my site for fall and I just love it. They do great work there!
