Wow the weather has been cool this past weekend. Nothing like going from 90 degrees to 65 degrees in two days. No wonder people's sinuses are messed up and getting colds. The cool nights have finally started turning leaves. Let the beautiful fall colors begin.
Speaking of fall colors I started a new quilt this weekend. I have been buying all kinds of fall fabric from Wal-mart. As you'll remember I have a hard time cutting it once I buy it. But I told myself I wanted a new fall quilt. I got a lot of it done yesterday. The quilt top is finished. Now I just need to get backing fabric. I know I know these are some really bright colors for me. but I just LOVE it. I think it's going to be awesome when I get it done. I am going to blanket stitch around the leaves and I think I'm going to stitch leaves on the long black pieces of the outer border. As you can tell I'm flying by the seat of my pants. LOL. I designed this quilt all by myself. I have a ton of fabric left so I may make some things and put them on my selling blog.
I've also been to the Goodwill recently. Ummmm... because I needed new jeans it seems as though my butt and hips are as big as a cow. LOL. I found some great deals on some brand new clothes with tags still on them. But I won't bore you with clothes. That's not why you visit me. LOL. I did find some great stuff otherwise though the pickins are slim. Pam must have beaten me there. LOL.
I just LOVE this picture. I've seen it in many magazine pictures in people's homes. I just had to have it.
Then I found this great wreath for Spring.
Not sure what this is or what it was used for, but it is wood and absolutely gorgeous.
I finally quit the fire department here in town. I just don't have time and it was burning me out. I need some down time and me time. Well, I need to get moving today. It's my last day off til Friday. I would like to get the quilt ready to quilt today. I also want to start another sampler so I have something to take to work with me for any down time I get. Pam loaned me one of her books with some awesome ones in it. I just need floss so I can get started.
Have a great week! Go out and enjoy the cooler weather that most of us are experiencing.
