Bumper crop of Black-eyed Susans this year
It's a busy season in Allie-ville right now - can't exactly tell you why. I was going to do a blog post a week ago, but my card reader died, couldn't get the pictures off my camera! Fortunately they don't cost much, and Amazon had one just for me.
Anybody know what bird this is? They were everywhere the other day.
All the critters are frantically running around, gathering for winter. We had a most unusual heat wave, and in one day the temps dropped almost 30 degrees, now we're definitely in autumn. Time to find all the jackets.
I finished up my Garden of Contentment, doing the binding while watching the coverage of Hurricane Florence and praying for all in the path.
I don't watch cable, they're far too dramatic for me. I don't even have cable. Not sure why the binding on this took me so long, my heart just wasn't in it....but it's done, and I love it.
Someday I'll hang it up. The walls in this house are plaster, so I've been very slow to hang anything - just utilized the holes already in the walls.
I did pull some very old fabric that I want to use to make couch pillows.
I'll cut the panels and use a matching red for the backs. I wish there was more of the stripe, there's not enough to go around all four.
I picked up mum the other day, and spent a little time with her, she seemed to be really rambling - and when I got home, I thought it over. I think she's alone too much. Our friend Shirley, who just lost her oldest daughter, is also alone too much - as is my best friend. I decided to do something about it. I rearranged my sewing room, into more of a sitting room, and I'm going to start having teas for us. We can sit and visit, or work on projects, and just socialize. Maybe I can come up with projects for us to work on. I can't wait....
Shasta from High Road Quilter sent me a lovely ATC that she made.
I love it. I want to get a tiny frame to put it in. Thank you Shasta!!! She has been a good friend and I will treasure this.
So that's about all for me today, I'm doing more reading than stitching lately.....maybe as the cooler weather draws in I'll get my mojo back. Always good to have the iron on all day when it's chilly, lol. Take care my friends, and enjoy whatever season you're in...see you soon!
