Fall is Coming

When the dogwood start getting brown and red it means that the leaves will also be falling off the Oak trees.

Then the acorns start falling and before long the temperatues will be going down. Doesn't feel like it now as it was in the 70's today but Oh so nice outseide. I just had to go for a walk and then got my camera and started to take some pictures.

This is what the drive looks like. It will get worse. Hopefully we will have some wind to blow them off. Along with ehe leaves.
I don't  have any quilts to show. None are finished but look what is blooming in the garden. My daughter brought these home from a baby shower they were the favors.
 She said to plant them which I did and they have been blooming ever since. At least two month.

Posted by PicasaAfter taking a couple pictures I sat down in my swing and looking up at the skyline this is what I saw. These are the huge old oak trees in the front yard. The sky was so blue and then the clouds but to think in another couple weeks those leaves will be down in my front yard or hopefully with some wind they will blow into the neighbors yard.
Those windows up on the second floor is my sewing porch. It is the first foor of the house. We sit on a hill. I love the woods and never get tired of looking at them.
I'm going to be off to a quilting retreat on Wed. and am so ready for this. Been in the works for several months. I have the kit from Alaska to start sewing up. Will tell more about it when I get home. Will be sure and take some pictures

Thanks for stoppping. How do you like my new blog dressing.? I finally updated it all but didn't get all my sidebar things back. See  you soon.

Summer Day

I have this finished now for the Schnibble's Minis that the Pink Pincushion has going. This was fun. One of the last set of patterns that Carrie has designed. I used a bright set of charms. Don't remember the name but if you click on it you will be able to see the designs in the fabrics.
Things have been going on in my life and with trouble uploading pictures to blogger I get a little discussed about even trying to post. But did need to get this posted. Since on the 28th I will be going to KC for a quilting retreat with my online friends. So am trying to get things caught up around here. Besides this past Tues. I had a cataract taken off my right eye and still have a film across the eye. Doctor said it should go away in a week. But am using my left eye and find it is pretty good.
This is one of the kits I put together for Kids quilts. She said last month she had a request for softer quilts for babies. So she put together some kits for us to do in the following month which comes to a close this Sunday.
This is another one. Then I put a couple more together with some of my fabrics and completed them .
This is one. She wants them washed so all this one and another one I didn't get a picture of need labels which I hope to just sew on this Sunday.
I have also been sewing up one I am making from one of the plates that Carrie sent to all of use last month. I was able to find a couple charm packs to complete it. I'm doing on of the patterns out of Carries book 2 that she put out to use Plates but to make the larger quilt it takes two plates. I found that 2 charm packs would do the work. Have all the blocks made now but still need to square them up and finish pressing some. So back to work.
Thanks for stopping until next time.
