Fall Ramblings

This post won't be all that exciting as I am going to make it short and hopefully sweet. 

First order of business, want to mention a giveaway for all of my quilting friends, Deb @ QuiltGal is giving away the book, Jelly Roll and Charm Quilts by Pam & Nicky Lintott and a package or Moda (Flutterby Charms), thanks Deb.  Just take a moment to visit her, leave a comment and post about it on your blog, be sure to hurry as the drawing is tomorrow. 

Next I just got the Frolic quilt back so I plan to get the binding on it soon and send it off to the newlyweds in North Carolina! 

I have been keeping myself busy with the stuff that needs to be done in the fall, put away summer funiture, wood (of course), moving things in the yard to prepare for the "S" word........picture a squirrel running around this time of year and that is me!  I have been taking time to relax too, but have not been good about posting, I hope to get back into a groove when things slow down a bit, then I will have quilting projects to share as well as some stichery that I hope to try soon.  A while back a special blogging friend sent me some stichery and recently I won a giveaway that was "stuff" for stichery as well as a how-to book so be prepared for me to bore you with my stichery attempts, LOL.  I am also planning on taking you on the final tour of the completed garage, we are ALMOST there, just the tool boxes and a few other odds and is a sneak peak. 

My "little porch" has a stack of encyclopedias that I am getting rid of, I hate to get rid of the but they take up space and no one uses them anymore :0(  

Look at all the space in front of my car, I know it probably still looks messy, but trust me or go back to my earlier posts and see what it used to look like, LOL.  We just go some more empty ammo cans, they are great for storing tools and other stuff and they are very sturdy, they are made of steel.  I am also back in business with my labeler!

Thanks for being patient with me while I prepare for winter, the one nice thing about winter is that I will be inside sewing more.......I will try to think up some more good winter stuff soon, seems the older I get the less I like winter or at least I wish it was shorter.  TTFN.


  1. Thanks for posting on your blog. I enjoyed reading yours.

  2. I wish winter was shorter too! I'm already tired of dealing with the wood burner and we're just getting started! LOL

  3. I was so tired of the heat but am really dreading winter. We're doing little things to get ready for winter but nothing compared to what you're doing. Can't wait to see your stitchery you'll be working on.

  4. (((HUGS))) Oh by the way the sunflower is my favorite flower to..every time I see them I puts some sunshine in your life. I know your busy preparing for winter..Your garage looks great and the wood shelves was like looking at our garage..Russ built them. You are making lots of headway. You take care and I am glad you are taking time to relax... Have a great evening..Lisa

  5. Hi Denise.
    I too am tired of the heat however we don't get much cold here. And it snows only once every 20 years. I am looking forward to seeing what you stitch up.
    Have a wonderful week. Please say a few prayers for Dave. He is in a flare up again. We went to 2 doctors today.

  6. Denise your garage is looking good... I love the little porch area, so cozy.

    Can't wait to see what you are stitching up next. I am glad to hear that you are taking some time off for fun things.

    The one advantage to winter is there is no grass to cut and no gardening to do... that is it. I too wish it was a whole lot shorter. I can't take the cold anymore, I am turning into such a

    Hope you have a great day.

    Hugs, Deb


I really enjoy hearing your comments, sorry I had to turn on the "word verification" but I got my first comment from a "non-person".......I prefer comments from people.
