I'm Back

And refreshed in spirit - the body is another story.  Somehow I've put my back out, and can't sit for very long.



 My view on the way to my aunt's.  I wish my camera had captured the hugeness of this moon!



The leaves are really changing, and the tree skeletons are starting to show.





The moon the other night was so spooky - it would have been a good night for trick-or-treating.




One of the joys of visiting my aunt's house is the fabulous Joann's 5 minutes away.  Look what I found there - Wendy's [from Ivory Spring blog] new book!  Well, one of her new books, lol!  So pretty!  Love those swirls and birdy.



I'm afraid I can't do much sitting [or standing or laying down!] so I've not visited blogs much.    But I do want to mention something Jenny blogged about - her new two free BOM's for next year, one of which I'll be collaborating on with her!


It's called Postcards From Heaven, and will begin on New Year's Day 2016.  Jenny will kick off the free BOM with her design, and I'll take over in February, and we'll tag-team back and forth with 12 free designs.  I hope you'll join us!  

I'm off to take more Tylenol - I'll see you as soon as I can sit for a spell!

Beautiful pictures!!! I just love October. Unfortunately, November is now upon us, and it's not nearly as pretty. Take care of your back!!!

I'm glad you've returned and had a great time, but so sorry about your back! I hope it will behave itself soon. Your pictures are lovely. I spent an afternoon taking fall pictures north of here into Kentucky and seem to have lost every last one of them from the disk. Boo hoo! There was some stuff I really loved on there. Maybe they'll turn up, right? I'm completely excited about the BOM! I will be here, you betcha.

I hope your back feels better soon, that isn't fun but as long as my hands are working, I am happy, lol.
I can't wait to see the new BOM, love inspirational pieces and things I can give as gifts too.

Hi Allie - Oh you poor girl, a dodgy back is truly nasty - i know that for myself - just take care & don't do too much!
Lovely pics & yes the moon always looks tiny in pics. I'm sure the BOM with Jenny will be so lovely, & have lots of stitchers joining in

Hi there, thanks for sharing your photos...autumn is interesting tree-wise especially.
I was aching this past week and it reminded me of the old saying "the spirit is willing but the body is weak"...hope you are feeling like your best self soon. Aren't Jenny's designs lovely and she is generous to share...and so are you! I hope to join your 2016 BOM group; what a great idea...two of my favourites together!

What great pictures you got! I love this time of year - it is so photogenic. So sorry your back is hurting - no fun. Sounds like you are in forced caring for yourself mode. How fun to be collaborating with Jenny on a BOM. What fun! Gentle hugs to you.

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

Gorgeous photos! Sure hope you feel better really soon Allie. I'll be watching for the BOM. You are both such great designers it should be fun. Mick was asking about you just yesterday.

Rachaeldaisy said...

Your photos are always a joy to see. That moon lit photo is so Halloweeny, and it's lovely to see the beautiful fall colours. I hope your back start behaving nicely soon.

Karen said...

Sorry about your back problem. I can relate to the pain.

You have an exciting year ahead of you to be joining in on presenting a bom. I look forward to seeing what you two create.

donna said...

Oh Allie I am so sorry to hear your back is hurting you. Hope you get to feeling better soon.
Love your pictures. I have always wanted to visit where the seasons actually change. We did see the moon the other night and it did look spooky.
So excited to hear about you and Jenny having a block of the month.
Hope you feel better soon and are having a good day.
Hugs
donna
