Golden days of Autumn...

The sun is shining today. Ya gotta love that. I am trying to get caught up on chores after company has moved on. Hard to get back in the swing of things, when all I really want is a nap! Doing the Flylady thing by getting all the linens washed and replaced for the next shift. Sheets and towels are easy.

This little wallhanging was something I peiced last winter. Just got around to quilting and binding it. It's simple and seems to match my mood, lately. I have been really pushing to get all of other folks' holiday quilting done so that I might have some time to do some of my own... doesn't that sound optimistic? Hope I don't get good and sick of it, and then just take a week off!!

The guys went deer hunting last weekend. DS Jacob(14y) got his first deer- 2 does. I guess that part of the state is overrun with deer. He was thrilled and I am happy for the meat. Seems to be taking me longer than it should to get it all processed and in the freezer. I am going to have to beg the older boys to give me a hand- the little ones are doing their best, but there is only so much you can do with a butter knife- as DS Abe(4) will tell you. But they are happy workers and we are slowing getting through it all. Good enough!

Processing wild game? There's just got to be something that you are NOT ABLE TO DO or NOT KNOW HOW TO DO. Right? Something? ;-) You amaze me, Nines!!!

I'm loving your stripes!!! That is darling. Hurray for you for finding that rare spare moment here and there to finish it up!

{{{Lots of ND hugs to you!!!}}}

It's a simple pattern, yes, but the fabric you've chosen gives it so much movement that it is really stunningly beautiful.
