The Loot!

I thought I better share some pictures of all the loot that I brought home from my little road trip last week. 

There were books:

Some fabric:

Even a kit.  I don't usually buy kits, but this was too good a deal to pass up.
Everything has been put away, and I've been doing lots of sewing.  I had to get a few things finished and off the sewing table so I can start Mr. Jack O'Lantern.  After all, it will be October in just a few days. 
And what, you ask, did hubby do while I was away?  He went out and bought his annual pumpkins and mums.  He says he's cutting back this year - one year he bought 19 pumpkins!
And in other hubby news, we went out to dinner with friends on Friday night.  He ordered a bowl of soup, ate it, and ordered and ate a second bowl!!
Tonight he ate my homemade chicken noodle soup.  Yeah!!  He's finally turned the corner and is beginning to improve.  Hopefully he'll be eating solid food in the near future.  I think he's lost over 40 pounds.  Thanks you all for your prayers throughout this ordeal.

Counting my blessings......Sunny


  1. I love seeing the "loot" from your trip. You have some great things there. Love your mums and pumpkin and the photo of the pumpkins on the huge wagon. Good news about your hubby. Hope that he keeps improving.

  2. Oh Sunny you are going to enjoy all your loot, can't wait to see what you make with the georgous fabric. So glad to hear that your other half is on the mend.

  3. Lots of lovely things Sunny... you will have fun with those.... how good is that to hear your hubby's appetite is coming back....

  4. Whoa, my comment disappeared before I'd finished, so if part of it appears followed by this, I'm sorry.

    What I was trying to say was that I am glad for both of you about the improvement in your husband's appetite, and also that I love some of the patterns you bought.

    What on earth, though, did your DH do with 19 pumpkins?

  5. Great buys. I love the fabrics and the kit seems really nice. I'm glad to know that your husband is feeling better.

  6. Love your goodies. Some great projejects in your books.
    I am really happy Hubby is getting better,hopes it keeps improving.

  7. Great finds! Have fun with all your new projects...
    Happy to hear that your husband is improving and pray each day gets better.

    Love all of your fall goodies--your pumpkins and mums are wonderful!

    You will have fun with the pumpkin pattern...I made one similar last year called, Bad and Happy Jacks.

    Hugs, Carolyn

  8. Sunny! I love, love your post! Great news about your hubby! Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!
    I love that he went and bought some pumpkins and mums while you were away. I just bought some for my front porch too. I don't think I bought as many as he probably did though :)

    Love the picture in your header. It's beautiful! And you really hit the treasure trove on your trip, now didn't you! Woot! Lots of good things there.

    Love your new autumn profile too. It's really lovely!!

  9. What a delight that your last picture with the butterfly is on an orange flower. So cool. I wish I could look through the 101 log cabin blocks. It looks so interesting. Nice haul!! LOL!! So happy to hear Mister is doing better.

  10. What pretty, pretty loot :)! Love the pumpkins and mums too! So glad your hubby is doing better - and you had a great trip!

  11. Glad to hear that Hubby is doing better! You found some fun loot to bring home. I love seeing pictures of pumpkins all lined up.

  12. We gals love to shop don't we? Quite a nice pile of loot you have there. Glad your hubby is feeling good enough to eat your soup. Love your new blog look.

  13. I love that Log cabin book. Just the cover makes me want to buy it! And the FQ bundle with the rose print on top. That looks sweet!
