Lovely weekend!

I have been outside most of the day - it's so unseasonably warm! The leaves are starting to change color - my garden is starting to fade and I'm thinking about apple pie, pumpkins, cranberries and a hot bowl of soup! I just made a fantastic lentil soup... I'll post a recipe - but we usually eat it so quickly I never have time for a picture! Looking forward to a big hike tomorrow - probably Palisade Falls - a fairly easy mile walk to a beautiful waterfall - and we'll stop to see new exhibits at the Museum of the Rockies... hopefully I'll have another picture of a quilty to post! Here's some sunflowers in my garden! And can you believe my hollyhocks have only started blooming?

Autumn is here!

Autumn is my favorite time of year - though Summer is right behind it! Hopefully we'll have a nice, long fall, without snow! I believe we had snow last year at this time. The leaves are turning and there's a chill in the air! I am trying to work on several 'mini-quilty' projects - and will possibly have them available on my Etsy site very soon. So far, I haven't had anything to sell but I'm working on inventory for the holidays! Here is a sample - these take a little bit of time to make, but I love the texture and the colors.

Summer Projects

I saw these in a Better Homes & Gardens gardening publication and decided I could make some for myself. They are 'yard ornaments'... a bit of whimsy to decorate the garden! They are very simple to make. I haunted the local thrift store for glassware, vases, candlestick holders. I used waterproof adhesive to put them together! I like how they turned out!
