Frames and Mail....

I received a gift I won from Country Loft Quilt Shop. Truthfully I would have been tickled over the crow tissue paper (completely cute!) But I also receive 3 fat quarters of Lynette Anderson fabric.  I've bought fabric, patterns and 3 BOM clubs from the shop. Their packaging  is as nice as the product itself.

I worked on my Pumpkin project yesterday.  Don built me a frame from some lumber he had lying around.  I'm going to paint it black--- sooner than later.  It's warm right now, but there's a chance of snow this weekend.
I cut the Bittersweet out of different colors of orange-- just like I see it on vines.  I thought the frame building was no big deal.  After all, the picture look like 4 pieces glued together.  But Don brings it to a new level...with lapped joints.  


I had delusions of taking notes....and using power tools... and learning to make my own...I'm kind of snickering as I type this..... I think I'll let him be in charge of frames for a  while longer.

It's a great frame and nice to have a handy guy around the house.

Love the pumpkins. I'm cutting out some fabric! Something autumn-ish is in the works.

Ooooh I'm so jealous---that frame is something to be coveted, you know. ;) Love the wool piece that's going in it---and your gourds are AWESOME :)

What nice craftmanship! And that is going to be such a cute picture. I was in a BOM from Country Loft and have made a few purchases from there and love their packaging too :o)

Yes, indeedy, as long as they are willing to do it -- let them! I am so glad mine likes to do those things. And that is a really cute haul of loot! Don did a great job on the frame, too.

I love enjoying your Michigan fall through your blog and photos. It is fall in Texas, too, which means it is only 85 degrees for afternoon recess.
