I absolutely love Fall and this year we have had such a gorgeous one!!!
The sun just keeps shining on all those golden leaves..... keeping them dry and crunchy....
and a strong wind has come through
tossing them up and around in the air!!
We have an abundance of trees here where we live,
which means.....
NO shortage of leaves!!!

The weather man says that rain is on its way though,
 and of course there never seems to
be enough free time outside to get them all picked up
 before they get all wet!!!
Slowly we will get them all collected. .....
hopefully before the daffodils start having to fight their way through them.
We usually spend some sunny winter days out raking leaves and picking up downed limbs with  a nice warm burn pile going!

I've had a great summer getting to travel around a bit!

I went on my first cruise to Alaska with
Terri Staats of Sweet Treasures Quilts 
and a group of wonderful women on a Quilting Cruise!!
It was so much fun and we got to sit and stitch and watch the ocean go by!!

Just a few days after that, I flew off to work with and help
 Stacy West of Buttermilk Basin
with her
 Barn Event!!
Oh my what an event it was!!!
You will definitely want to check it out and try and attend next year!!

I've been home a few weeks now and have been busy getting ready
to head back out the door the end of the month for a trip to

Gail Pan of Gail Pan Designs
has invited me to come and teach a workshop along with her!!
Its going to be a HOLIDAY Gail says!!!
I am excited and blessed to get to have this opportunity!! here it is!!

 Christmas Mystery Quilt Blog Hop started!!
I hope you are having fun stitching the blocks!!

Oh this is a very cute one thanks for your talents . I am not sure if my blocks will be a quilt or make them single to lay upon a table or hang on my wire stand either way i am loving them all so far.

Annette said...
