  October 2017

Happy October! And a happy October it is too! The fires are out!! The weather finally turned to cool, rainy, and even snow. The air is clear again and the fall colors seem so brilliant after the gray smokey days. Fall is definitely here!
We really would like to thank everyone for your concern and support! Many have come in and have e-mailed. We are so happy to get back to doing normal things!  I got to go on a retreat and I actually got a quilt top completed for a store sample! I am behind however on my hand stitching!

For me fall is the best season starting with Pumpkin Spice Latte's from Starbucks!  It is best paired with their pumpkin bread (which is my favorite year round). Fall food is the best. Anything with pumpkin or apples is always great. Putting on jeans and a sweater are like saying hello to an old friend!  Changing the summer fake flowers with the fall fake flowers on the front porch makes me happy. I am always drawn to gold, rust, green, and brown fabrics, and throw in a little purple for accent...yum! We just got in Kathy Schmitz's new book "Stitches From the Harvest" and I want to make every project in it! Little birds and squirrels, acorns and oak leaves, pumpkins and berries are the best motifs! It was really time for the season to change! Happy Quilting, Pam
