Fall in Western Maryland

This is my rocker at the back of my property and the view looking west and the woods that below to the neighbors. I love to sit here and read in the afternoon . So peaceful.
So then a few days later a different view with the yellow coming though. I finally got all 4 pictures posted together. Just needs some practice.
Then yesterday I  just had to take this out of my window. This is what I see when I sit and sew on my porch. The close tree is the dogwood which is old, old and in the foreground by the bird feeder are about three small dogwoods that we have tried to keep growing. There was two blossoms on one of them this past spring.
This is what I have been working on the past couple weeks. See all those half square triangles. Takes a lot of time. But really is worth it.
It is the Thimbleberries Club quilt for this year. Is just 7 feet tall and 6 feet wide. That is how big my board is and the room. It will be a while before I get this quilted.

Have enjoyed being able to drive myself as the Doctor said I could drive and also I can now start swimming again. So that is what this last week has been. Busy as I had my  last week of physical therapy. I presume that means I am almost back to normal.  I still have some backaches when I am walking to long. So it just  means I don't go  shopping very long or sit down for awhile.
I still have a date at the Doctors office the day before Thanksgiving but also have to get X-rays of my  back to take with me. So  maybe I will get pictures of what he did to my back.

Something else that I am doing today along with My Hubbies cousin who is also a widow , we are going to see a travel agent to find out about a cruise to Alaska for next summer. That should make a very rainy warm day much better.

I have also been getting Bonnie's last mystery quilt, machine quilted. It is on my Juki in the basement. Find I  can get a good bit done in about an hour or so. Didn't get down yesterday and guess I won't today.

So yes, I am doing well  and have to get some more quilting  completed, Thanks for stopping by even though I don't have that much to say or post to often.   Posted by Picasa

Hi Eileen! I'm glad to hear you are progressing well. --and have your freedom wheels back again. :-)So many half square triangles! aiyee! But they make a very effective border to a very nice quilt. Isn't fall a wonderful season! You have a lot of trees to watch for color change. I loved autumn when we lived back there. Here, the color is subtle and mostly in street trees planted for fall color.

What a lovely spot, my friend. It is so nice to see you getting back to doing the things you love to do. I have heard lots of good things about Alaskan cruises- it would be a lovely
place to visit.
Your new quilt is wonderful- Enjoy your swimming.
Warmest regards,
