Oh how I love FALL!!

I have been getting my house ready for Fall this week. Even though we are still having hot days, the weather is slowly revealing its more mellow side. The days are shorter, the evenings are cooler, and there have been a couple mornings where I almost caught a chill! So, it is coming. And I want to stretch it out as long as I can. Here are some of the changes happening at my house. My Fall quilts have come out from hiding. This is a Fall runner, most of which you cannot see because of the tray sitting on it.

My Crimson in Clover that fills the space above our couch on the wall. Better picture of that one later.My SCARY Halloween Ghost!

My Monthly Button Up Quilt, starting with October, even though it is still September!
My small quilts go out on table tops, and a harvest colored quilted pillow for the chair.
The first quilt I ever made, and even hand quilted! Out on the front porch.

Look at you and your fall decor out already! I have been thinking for about two weeks that I will set some of my stuff out, and I have still not done anything. I am getting too pregnant to care this year I think. I want it all out, I just want someone else to do it for me!

Do you know when they start selling the scented pinecones at the grocery store? I want those now.

Kris said...

I will come one day next week and put your stuff out for you. Just tell me where to put it, and I will put it.
Pinecones, not yet...but pumpkins are in the store! I can't wait to go apple picking on Sunday!
Love you

Your front porch looks perfect for me to come over and read my book "Jubilee Trail" I can't wait to start it. Your quilt would be perfect to wrap my self in if it were to get too cool. I can spell the spice in the air and I am sure you would be so sweet as to bring me out a cup of something that is tasty. Surprise me! A

I want cute Fall decor like you! I can't wait until we find a house so I can decorate again! Fall is my FAVORITE time of year too!

I can feel it too. I love the change in the air. Do you want to walk in the park on Monday?

Lauri said... your new look.

Your quilts are beautiful. That is a hobby I'd really enjoy taking up one of these days. What is your favorite quilt pattern?

I wish it would cool off here and feel like fall. I think we still have another month of the heat.
