Fall is Here!

Yay! Fall is here.  The air is crisp, and I must were a robe or jacket when I take my coffee to the front porch in the mornings.  We have the windows and front door wide open(don’t worry, we have a screened in front porch, country people, remember 😉  ).  AND I bought lovely mums for my front steps.  They are just about to bloom.  When I came in this afternoon, I noticed this where the mums should have been, hummmmm…

And my mums were on the porch!  Arrrgggg…….

No wondering what happened!  Thanks, Tall Guy.  Who, by the way is still getting taller, turned 15 last month, and has grown a 1/2 inch!  Now even Archer must look up to him! 

Brown Baggin’ It cont’d…..

Here’s what I’ve got completed so far.


My lovely half square triangles.  Hoping the black will read like more of solid, after it all comes together.  I pulled the black with fall leaves from my stash, it was Sweet Memory’s.

And, now…. It’s time to slice the ham!

Hehehe. ;))  Hope that’s not too offensive to all you piggy lovers and collectors.  😉

Brown Baggin’ It

It feels great to be back to “normal,” whatever that is. 😉 For the last two weeks our lives have been consumed with…

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
So, none of you knew I got a sweet package in the mail last week! 😉  It was from Amanda, in New York.   My kids are amazed that someone I do not know would send me something in the mail. 
With this lovely card, that she made, and she sells on etsy, her shop is here.
 

 
Now, if you haven’t signed up for the Brown Bag Quilt Swap, yet, there’s still time! 🙂  Just click on the button, it’ll take you where you need to go.
Wanna see what was in the box? Well, here it is.


And, of course, there’s always a ringer…pigs, pink pigs. Lol!

Just a little to bright for me, so I gave them a bath.  After all, who has ever seen clean pigs? So first I got them wet.  Then, I put them into a bath of…..coffee. Yep, that’s right, coffee.

Just enough to take a little of the brightness out. Yeah, I added one tea bag just for good measure. 🙂
Then out they came, just a little more subtle.  Whatta ya think?

I’m already working on my quilt, working late into the night, last night.  All the while playing Words…with Friends.  😉  
More to come…stay tuned.
