Short Post

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!

    so does your apple recipe include sprite? what is your recipe?
    those leaves are so you. Can't wait to see yours.

  6. Fall is my favorite time too. I've pared down my decorating, but it's fun to pull out some favorites. Your watercolors are sweet and you have a real talent.

  7. Hello, I went by to say hello, since I've been disconnected from everything for a long time. As always I love your work. That I still think that they are not chapucillas, but great works. A kiss.


I love to read your comments, they make my day!
