Bouncing Along

Well I'm finally Bouncing along...it's taken me all week but I finally have all of my Bounce stars done.

I don't think I've ever sewn so slowly in 30 years...those germs I came back from Birmingham with really, really knocked me for a loop.  There were days I never even attempted to go upstairs...and then there were days that I went up, worked for half and hour and was pooped.  Finally this past Friday I really started feeling better...much more energy...over a week out of commission.  But things are looking up here!  And I'm a very happy girl!

I have another Halloween treat from Target to share with you...Candy Corn Oreos...
OH MY!  The cookie is the vanilla Oreo and the cream is a candy corn cream...these are out of this world.  I had heard about these and that they were exclusively in Target.  I went to our Target several times before I headed to Birmingham, but no Candy Corn Oreos...Katie and I had to run to her Target one night while I was there and Bonanza...and entire display!  I jumped for joy and ran to the display...Katie laughed so hard...she said she wasn't sure she'd ever seen me move that fast.  I bought several bags, Josh, Hampton and I ate them while I was there and I brought one bag home.  I've been rationing them since I've been home.  It's the little things in life that make me happy!

Your stars look good. I'm going to a quilting retreat in November and hope to work on my Bounce quilt then. I'm so glad you're feeling a little better.

I'm 'Starring' tomorrow night...promise. Darling Oreos. The cleverness of some. But my favorite kind are the dark oreos with chocolate on the inside....There is no life without chocolate....;)

I can't believe you finished all those stars. You may think it was slow sewing but I think you were quite fast.
I saw those cookies today but I was afraid to bring them home.

Sharon Dawn said...

Oh no!! More Candy Corn? I am still searching for the chocolate ones!!

Glad you are feeling better!

That's so funny about the Oreos. I hope your flu bug is finally gone sounds like it finally is. That's great that you got your stars all done.

Isn't it such a good thing when you finally start to feel human again? Glad you are over that hump.
What pretty, pretty stars!
No target store here, so we are safe. : )

Kathie said...

So glad you're feeling better! Oreos as antibiotics, I like that idea.

Bounce is coming along nicely. Oh, you do so tempt me! I'll have to stay away from Target all month.
