Starting to, that is. I have done some shopping. This week I finished Eli's Christmas stocking! Yea! I put out a few Christmas decorations, including some wall hangings. We won't be home for Christmas as we are going to be visiting 2 DSs and their families for Christmas and birthdays. Eli is turning one and Abigail will turn three right after Christmas. I have a little Christmas tree that I'm going to take in the camper, plus a couple other little decorations.
Not long ago I saw this little quilt on someone's blog and now I can't remember which blog it was - sorry! Correction: I saw the quilt here and Kathie from Inspired by Antique Quilts had made it. Anyway, I couldn't resist making it. The HSTs finish at 2". Yesterday I basted this, plus another small quilt and also put together and basted the teen-age boy donation quilt. I want to get it finished before we leave and I quilted about 1/3 of it.
I love to browse through antique shops and last week in Glen Rose, TX, I found a few little items.
An old wood box, a tea towel and a potholder.
The linen tea towel has a name sewn onto it - Mrs. W A. Perryman. I love the unusual design. I wonder how old it is.
I HAD to buy this potholder as it is exactly like the ones my grandma used to make, except she didn't make the scalloped edge.
In the mornings I go for a walk down to the pond that is about 3/4 mile from our house, I walk around the pond and then to home. This pictures shows some of our fall color. It's not as good as up north, but we love it anyway. There are usually ducks swimming in the pond and sometimes a heron.
Thanks for visiting!
