Where has the time gone?!
I've been spending time in my sewing room finishing an ambitious Summer Blog Mystery Quilt.
I was doing so well keeping up, then again... life happens & it's put on hold & just viewed on the design wall. Well, I need that wall as I have two quilts to make for Christmas! So out with the old project of summer!
I have a week before Bill returns & the house must return to want it should look like. That means the lovely kitchen countertop must retreat back into my sewing room. Just today Kathleen, a girlfriend from the village next door, laughed & said: "Bill's not home, is he?" as she was trying to make sense out of the fabric layouts & patterns on the counter.
No, but look what I've made!
There are just four blocks made, so I must stay focused & do the others!
I have my sashing, cornerstones & outer blocks cut & ready. Just have to finish those inner mystery blocks. I used a nautical colouring of red, creme, & blue to surround the blocks.
They are off the stove now & I've put on a fire to get the damp chilly day out of the air. The wind is cold & the rain makes for a very chilly day.
The Boston puppies are not enjoying these days... wait till they see the winter here, they were born on December 19th last year & had a pampered winter as baby puppies. Oh my, they are not going to enjoy living next to the water come winter, the wind is bone chilling & they're not outside dogs! Their bellies are skin, they'll be wearing jackets most of the winter. lol
Nick will be home for Thanksgiving & this should give him a chuckle on how their ladder was upcycled!
It's going to be a good weekend to bottle some fresh produce. There is a chill in the air & all of New Brunswick is under a frost warning tonight.
I'm enjoying the maple wood in the fireplace, it's from the backyard maple that had to be removed because of the addition. I was so happy to see a couple of maple trees, behind where it stood, with bright red leaves on it. It is still alive as it rises again through its roots!
You know that Rankin Family song, We Rise Again, I cried when Nick's class sang it as I felt the lyrics & knew it was a song that goes expresses how we go on after we are gone. We Rise Again!
Thank you for stopping in to visit my little corner of the world.
Have a wonderful Fall weekend wherever you are!
