Leaves Falling

I bought this Bakers rake to go into the quilt room, We wrestled it downstairs had to cut 2 of the side spirals off to fit. We did and still are not divorced!
I should have taken a picture on how I got it here. Lucky for me they let me pick it up 6am on a Saturday. It only fit halfway in the back of the van I had to use bungies to secure it and then drive all the way home on the 400series highways so that I would not hit to many bumps, at that time there was not much traffic thank goodness.
I have all these projects waiting in line to start! this thing is iron and the weight has not affected it at all. So yes the Quilt room was once again rearranged. DH is amazed how I can fit something into a room that looks like no more won`t  fit into it.
 I am also making 64 leaves for a swap in the SmallTalk Yahoo group Group owner is Kathleen Tracy.If you view this blog she has some made too and they are gorgeous also has the link if you are interested in making any and sending some along.  Tried staging with my hydrangeas, this is the Alice Oakleaf one still my favorite
 you can see that some of them are still blooming this is a new one I got this year it is supposed to grow up to 10feet imagine these all over!! I am excited
 These are the pink diamonds below with some big hostas!!
I have been busy our wonderful Quilt guild Executives have been busy with our programs and so far we have had some great speakers.
Quilt show of one of the guilds I belong to Twisted Stitchers is having their show Nov 2&3rd hope you are able to attend. I am a new member there I won`t have a quilt this year but the next show I will there is not enough time to get one in.
I was supposed to go to a retreat with my other guild  but had to stick around the house this weekend so will work on gardens for winterizing, work on my leaves. Go to a Sat Sewday.

Well off to sew a little have a great weekend all..might be able to post again.


  1. You sure do have a lot of projects to start!!!

    I'm just trying to figure out where in the world you put that rack?

    your hydrangeas are gorgeous and I can visualize them in your garden.

  2. Last week at the Creativ Festival I bought a few tickets in the raffle quilt for the Ajax quilt's gorgeous! Love your new stand, and your blocks look good against the real leaves.

  3. That's a terrific rack! Have to smile when I think about how you got it home and down into your sewing room. Your little leaf blocks look great! As do your hydrangeas. Hope to be able to go to the Twisted Stitchers quilt show.

  4. Wow... you filled your bakers rack quickly. I just put in a new organizer as well - five drawer plastic. Not nearly as decorative but still had the same comment from my DH.
    Your blocks are beautiful! Love your hydrangea.

  5. Love your blocks... glad to see you are still blogging... miss you on QLR.
