My Weekend

What a great weekend we had. The weather was perfect! While my husband did the mowing and other yard projects, I did some housework and fall decorating, inside and out. I also did some weeding which is not a chore on a sunny, cool day. And to my son's delight, I made an apple pie (which is gone already :).  Rick and I each had good books, so we took many breaks sitting on the deck reading.

I just finished that pumpkin quilt. It is from an old APQ magazine, though I changed it up a bit. I also made  that little cross stitch ornament this week. I thought the bumpy trim was a perfect way to finish it.

Have a great week!

Sweet Autumn

Even though it can be somewhat weedy, I can't help but love sweet autumn clematis. Starting from ground level, it climbs up a fence or trellis during the spring and summer and then explodes in bloom in September. The yard is filled with it's sweet fragrance and pretty flowers. It does reseed easily and I find it growing all over the place.I just keep ripping it out where I don't want it and adding where I do!

I wish you all could smell this!

And here is another sweet thing!
