This was the sun rising in the East and the shadow was the weeds in from of the pumpkin and I was just in the right place at the right time. There is beauty all around us if only we can see.
Have a fun weekend - some pumpkin carving and Halloween cookie baking on our schedule!

I have been busy trying to layer up a few Quilts that are just waiting . . . I like to use my big Picnic table outside for this.
I also have just finished quilting a big star Quilt and need to get the binding on it now and then a label on it.
I plan to take a couple with me on my Sewing, painting get away weekend at the end of this month and we'll see how far I get with them. I think the top and bottom quilts I will quilt mostly with straight lines so they will go quicker. The top one was a bundle of fabric from a Quilt show in the spring and the bottom one was using leftover 3.5 squares from a year long project that I did. I will update with progress as they go along. . . . wow - typos from auto correct when I first posted - sorry I think I have them all now.

This was a beautiful fall weather weekend . . . warm sunny days with beautiful cerulean skies. The Trees here in Western NY are just starting to change colors in some of the hills and valleys. We did a lot of around the house work most of the weekend. The boys participated in Xylems I Solved Water Program and won first place for Water Quality which came with a 1000K prize for the Robotic team. I made a road trip to nearby Fingerlakes town for a Grape Sundae and Crumb Top Grape pie as requested by the family. Some Spring Bulb planting and moving perennials around- adding a few things by our new Pond but mostly planting that will wait for the spring time. Spinach salad, Kale chips, Roasted veggies, fresh green salad and a few last fresh green beans. So much yumminess this time of year. Today is another drop dead gorgeous day but most of my work is inside- having a hard time with that.
