Fall is Here – I think

In Texas you can never tell when fall is REALLY here.  Oh, how I miss Michigan in October.

Yesterday I did a little fall decorating.  I am about a month late for me.  Here are a few pictures.

 

I have a new finished a new quilt.  Sorry the pictures aren’t better, but I just don’t have space to hang it or lay it out flat.

Harriet Tubman Quilt 001

Harriet Tubman Quilt 002

This quilt is based on the Harriet Tubman block by Kaye England.   I attended a weekend Civil War Mystery Quilt retreat.

My friend Betsy Chutchian has a new book out from Kansas City Star.  It is based on Betsy’s great great grandmother’s 1857 journals and it is a wonderful book.  I have had a the privilege of seeing some on Betsy’s quilt in person and they are beautiful.

Fall 011

I have two new things in my sewing room – a new sewing chair that I love  and a thread tray for my most used threads.

Fall 012

Fall 013

  That’s it for today.
