Aine and Aisling went to Aine’s school disco last night! Here are a few photos of Aine and her friends partying down (okay all the did was hold hands and walk in circles around the dance floor…they didn’t want to dance!). It has been a while since I wrote how to pronounce their Irish names, they don’t sound like they are written! Aine is “on-ya” and Aisling is “ash-ling”, just in case you were curious!!

It was a dance complete with a DJ and a bar for the parents, beer at a kid’s disco…well when in Rome Ireland… It was really crowded and crazy but the kids had a great time seeing their friends late at night (well…7-9pm late…)! Very cute!!

Aside from Halloween happening, I’ve been doing a bit more little projects here and there. I finished the next set of swap blocks for my Dear Jane swap with Katy.

 And here is the status of my Ocean Waves quilt on my design wall: I’ve got 49 of 80 done…getting there slowly, oh so slowly!!  But I love using all the little scraps from the DJ and my repro box!!

My friend Jane and I have decided to try to meet here at my house on a Wednesday night for a mini sewing bee. She is a fellow quilter, very artistic and always inspirational. She brought over this African quilt for her future nephew whose daddy is Zimbabwean. I’m not sure, but Ruth, I think she got her inspiration from a similar book that you did…those paw prints reminded me of your quilt! She used all kinds of sizes of scraps and it really reminded me of a Gwen Marston type free form quilt construction… I love it, despite being mainly a fan of antique looking quilts!!

Oh yeah, and she has succumbed to “Jane’s Addiction” fitting, considering her name, lol!!

She did this wallhanging for her sister but she is talking about doing the whole quilt for herself now!! Mwa ha ha!!!
