Happy October! Well the frost was definitely on the pumpkins this morning. We did not have the snow accumulation like the eastern side of the state had but we had a bit. It is gone in the valley but the mountains are covered and it is a little colder than it should be. I am sure we will have more than 3 days of fall!
Congratulations to our Sharon Pohlman. She just became a grandma to identical triplet girls!!! They were delivered at 28 weeks and each weighing over 2 pounds. Mom and babies are doing well. They will be in the NICU in Missoula for a couple more months but we know that the staff at Community Hospital are fantastic! LaRee donated a quilt to raffle and all the proceeds will go directly to Kristy and Shawn. They will be driving back and forth to Missoula a lot! The tickets are $5.00 will be drawn November 3rd. Tickets are here at the store if anyone is interested in helping out.
Happy Quilting, Pam
