fall is in the air

Wow, I've been MIA for a long time.  It's been so busy crazy here and it's not going to let up anytime soon.  So, I'll try to catch you all up here and I hope I don't overload you with too many photos.

Before the girls came, Mr left to go to Illinois to go see the Cubs play down in Wrigley Field.  I stayed home to get ready for the girls.  I had found a book awhile back 101 fabulous Small Quilts at JoAnn fabrics and have been itching to make something from it.

After finishing up my cleaning I went down to the sewing room and made this small mat which is reversible.

The mat was made from the scraps leftover from my first bargello ever.

We recently celebrated our anniversary and spent the afternoon in Dubuque Iowa, and the drive on the way out there was beautiful.  We visited the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium and had a wonderful dinner afterwards.




The colors have been just beautiful this fall. 


Our neighbor invited us on their annual 4 wheeling/ATV trip.  The weather was awesome.

All in a line

Fall/Autumn in the Ocooch mountains has been just wonderful this year.


Too much to show you and too busy to post.
