I love FALL! Everything about it makes me happy. The colors, the smells, sweaters and snuggling in at night.
I love these leaves and hope to have some made for the next post. The pattern is by Center Street Quilts. The reason this post is short is I dropped my camera and broke it. I went to find the charging cord and realized when I cleaned out the junk drawer the other day I threw it out! I guess that is a sign. I was just getting back into the groove!
Another good Fall thing is baking. I love to bake for my husband. I make his lunch every day for work, so I like to give him homemade goodies and not Oreos! These are an amazing apple dumpling that is going to be my go-to when I need to bring a dessert to something. I am pretty sure they are a million calories each but so worth it!
The Halloween decorations are out. I bought these pumkins at Target last year and the checks are so fun and unexpected. I feel like I can leave them out through Thanksgiving too.
I babysat today for 2 of my grandchildren. Brynn, who is almost 2 was in love with this cat.....
and this kind of scary looking thing too! These are a few of the things I have kept from over the years. My decorating is very pared down from the past.
Well here is where the post must end because I don't have any other pictures right now! I bought a very small (2" x 2.5") sketchbook from the Brooklyn Art Museum. Each sketchbook is numbered and there are larger ones too (5" x 7"). You fill up the pages and send it back to them. They have them stored in their library and you can check them out just like a book! If you want more information you can find it at The Sketchbook Project and find it there.
I am doing very small watercolors and am enjoying it! I thought about doing something quilt related, but it would be too bulky as it is very small, maybe it would work with a larger one. If you are interested my number is B118170. I haven't sent it back yet but will most likely have it in the mail by the end of the week.
I hope you are inspired by this beautiful weather to make something fun!
