Back On-Line!



Little Boy and I enjoyed the beautiful fall scenery traveling through Maine - the leaves were a riot of reds, oranges, yellows. Little Boy delights when the wind blows and the trees "rain". Thank you for all the well-wishes for safe travels! And, we've had a great week of family visiting time, with more to come shortly.

I have not done any sewing that I can take a photo of yet... so here is a photo of my Country Wife top right before I left on my trip. I know you have seen it before, but not all SEWN together - grin! One of my October sewing goals is to get the 2 final borders on this... we will see...(I still have to BUY the fabric and you might not remember - but my son does not like shopping!) In anycase, I am happy to have the top up to this point! Progress is progress!

It is a wonderful quilt top. Pat yourself on the back for getting as much done as you do - and for taking such loving care of Little Boy!

Welcome back!

Do you take your sewing machine along on the road? Or use that time for hand sewing?

Like your son I think raining leaves is the best part of fall -- it just nudges out the scrunching underfoot when you walk through deep piles of them

Mary said...

Don't you just love autumn? Our leaves are changing now and I'm crossing my fingers that they will *peak* the weekend of my son's wedding - Oct 28th!

Hi Evelyn, so glad you are back and the trip was a good one.

I scrolled down and saw your lovely log cabin and checkerboard quilt. I love it!!
Hard to believe the summer is over, and it's October already. Time sure does fly. Hugs, Finn
