Sunday Evening....

Saturdays are the best. I get to sleep late(around 6:30am for me). I get to run the pups in the morning and the evening. Workouts on the elliptical machine do not involve a panic mode that "I'm running out of time". I have the weekly house cleaning to do coupled with errand running and the proverbial grocery shopping expeditions. But at the end of the day I sigh--- I have a cabinet full of food, a clean house, content pups, and enough calories burned I can eat just about anything I want.


Sundays are just as awesome plus I get sewing time-- completely guilt free. My Summer Stars are coming together. I am working on about 3 projects-- flitting from block to block. I want to get them to the completion stage. I have a trip to Green Bay planned for next weekend. I've hugged my scrap box pretty close on most of these projects so I'm due some fabric shopping---- borders and backings.
Seasons are swinging to new positions. There are snow flurries predicted for 50 miles north of here this weekend. Here are leaves from my walk with Ripley and Bruno.

I think my sewing machine is going to take up residence on my kitchen table this week....The weather is to beautiful to miss....

I'm off to make a pot of Gumbo for the week and cut up fabric the rest of the evening.

Sounds like life is full and sweet. I am longing for the change of leaves here. We have a few, but I am so ready to settle down for a long winter's nap...

Sounds like a wonderful weekend, Mel, full of everything that delights you. Love the leaves. :) I'm ready for the Season to change, like Sue, ready to settle down for a long winter's nap. :d

Sounds most excellent! And those Louisiana roots are showing - gumbo - yummy! Your star blocks are looking really good. Enjoy your week. I can't imagine snow. We were just rejoicing that our low temps will go to the lower sixties this week.

I came across your blog via Log Cabin Quilter, and I can tell I'm going to visit you more often because I like what I see! I applaud you for sticking with the TQS summer blocks. I too, found it challenging working with smaller pieces... I only made four of the eight blocks, and I feel guilty for not making all of them. (You can read about at my blog...) Have fun shopping for fabric in Green Bay. I could use some tips on quilt shops in that area. I'll be in Green Bay the first week of November!
