Autumn is officially here, and with it, cooler temps...I don't like it. I love the colors of the trees, but I can do without the cold!
This is one of the stops on my route - you can just see one tree turning behind the others.
Up north, it's a riot of color. Some trees down here have already lost their leaves - *sob*
I managed to get to ONE garage sale this season. But oh, look what I found!!!!
This table is massive. It has two drawers on each side, and it's on wheels, and it's solid wood. It's almost as high as my waist. It's my new cutting table!! The guy wanted $100 for it, but I talked him down to $40...
Here it is with a chair in front of it, so you can see how high it is.
I might have to get a bar stool so I can sit at it as well.
GREAT for pinning quilts!!
No aching back. That's one of the quilts that I'll be hand quilting this winter. I found three, all vintage, all pieced by hand....I need to clean out my totes more often.
I also pulled out an old UFO, I believe it's from 2012 - a Homespun stitch-a-long.
This is only the second block! Yes Wendy-girl, I'll finish it someday, lol - Wendy very kindly sent me the Homespun issue with the first block. I love this project, it's the only one I've ever bought the floss for, following the designer's colors.
Ellen sent me some of the stripe for my pillows that she had left over -
Thank you so much Ellen, it's renewed my determination to get these made! I can't wait to get started now! I love that it's on the diagonal!
For those of you that have unsaved family members, I want to give you a word of encouragement. Thursday evening, we had a Celebration of Life for my cousin. He died the week before. At the party, his son told me that he had accepted Christ 3 weeks before he died - it is never too late, don't ever give up praying! As soon as we heard he was sick, that was the one big prayer we had for him. Thank you Lord, we know he's safely with Jesus now!! Don't. Give. Up.
Oddly enough, that night it was so warm, I had to wear a sleeveless top - and now we have this.
No wonder so many folks get sick this time of year!
I'll leave you with an astonishingly large spider web I spotted in a tree outside my sewing room window - I thought it was a clear plastic plate at first.
I do not want to meet whatever made that in the dark!
Be well, be happy....
