Speaking of things you just have to laugh about - this was my view out the window this past Sunday morning...
That's Fall in Colorado, folks! The birds didn't mind the snow at all!
The view out the front window was interesting, too -
About 4 inches of snow fell overnight, and the big tree in our front yard dumped all of its leaves (all at once!) right on top.
Being cold and snowy, Sunday turned into the perfect sew day! I enjoyed finishing up one of my pumpkin blocks into this piece for the little wooden chest that sits by our front door.
I added some 3 inch squares of fall fabrics to either side of it, did some machine quilting around the pumpkin and through the borders, and then some handquilting to give the pumpkin its shape. This little piece measures 11 x 17.
It's perfect for helping dress up this spot for the season!
This weather has been good reading weather, too, and I have been giving our local library a lot of business!
That pile holds everything from a Bonnie Hunter quilting book, to a holiday romance by Debbie Macomber, to the latest in the Women's Murder Club series by James Patterson. I love to read!
A recent favorite that I checked out as an ebook so I could take it on our trip was The Zookeeper's Wife.
This book was quite an eye-opener for me - based on the true story of the Warsaw Zoo during WWII. Now I'd like to see the movie, too!
And, finally, I liked this - found online the other day!
Well, and read a book, too!
Hope you're having a great week! Be sure to visit all the other I Like Thursday posts at Not Afraid of Color!
