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!

It isn't surprising that the apple pie has disappeared. That is a favorite here!

You made some great progress with your crafts this week-end, too! I am still enjoying the cover/journal from your giveaway!
