Anticipating fall

This is the second little Halloween quilty. The third one is in process, and I'm having so much fun with these funny little things.
The high here yesterday was 89! Now that is late-fall weather here our neck of the woods, and once you combine the low temperature with the low humidity, the result is a perfect day. After weeks of 98-102 (and of course even that was better than the highs of 105+ earlier this summer), yesterday was as refreshing and as welcome as a dip in a mountain stream--invigorating , stimulating, galvanizing. Talk about weather being the topic of conversation!

I managed to get some weeding done, long neglected, this chore was a pleasure even if it didn't put much of a dent into the overall project.

It will be warmer today, and we will still possibly get more 100 degree weather, but for the moment, our area is luxuriating in this marvelous break in the summer.


  1. These Halloween quilts are really fun!

    I can sure tell you live way south of me when you say you feel like 89 is cool. :-)

  2. Thanks, Deb and Deb. I usually get all the way to Halloween thinking that I'm going to make something, but not doing it. This year, one of my goals was to start early and have something to show!


  3. You are making me feel like a slacker! These are really cute. I might have to do some for M & M!

  4. Love the Halloween quilts!I don't decorate much for that holiday anymore,but I expect to revive the tradition with my someday grandchildren.
    Loved all your beautiful wedding pictures, too. I perfectly understand about 89 degrees being cool and lovely. Any day that doesn't reach 90 degrees inland in wonderful for me! Jen

  5. Gerrie, as if! The last thing I think of when I think of you is "slacker." You have an M & M and I have an M & M, and both are girl then boy.

    Thanks, Jen. I thought you'd be cooler there, but I guess the "inland" part is the kicker.

    Thanks, Paris Parfait. I think I need to check your Poetry Thursday contribution. I skipped again this week. My mind isn't what it used to be.

  6. I LOVE your Halloween quilts! Just adorable. Makes me want to go start a new Fall quilt, right now, right in the midst of all these other projects that I have going. :) Great pieces!

  7. Thanks, Angie, I've had fun playing with them. The last one is stalled, but with so much going on right now, taking a break from it is a good thing. I have several other projects going in the quilting arena, too, but obviously didn't want to work on them. :[


Good to hear from you!
