Other than the Sew, Let’s QAL and the current Barn Quilt BOM from Powered by Quilting, I have been relatively absent from posting this summer. I have continued to check in and read many of your posts all along. But now it is November and I find myself with a bit of writer’s block. It seems the longer I don’t write, I don’t know where to start. So I have to just jump back in with a Hello! and share a small project I most recently made.
This is the forth year in a row I have made Duane a Halloween mug rug for his favorite occasion, Halloween!
While sketching out this design, I imagined the clouds turning to ghosts to raise the hair on the quintessential Halloween cat! It was a fun improv piece to create.
The Halloween past mug rugs:
This summer my free time was focused on my garden. I love to grow as many of my herbs and vegetables as possible from seed. It is always a marvel to me to see one seed grow into a plant with fruits and veggies; like the tomato plant that we can eat from every day and still make sauce and salsa with more than enough to give away.
I planted some cosmos seeds last spring and they all grew into giant bush like plants with not a single bloom. I ended up pulling them all up in October except for one smaller plant that was in a pot. Well it did bloom this week! I love the color and it makes me smile.
It’s hard watching the garden fade but it has been a beautiful Fall here in Pennsylvania.
Thank you for stopping by!
Linking up with Friday Foto Fun!
