We (me, DS, DH, my Mom and Dad) picked apples in 42 degree weather with a little drizzling rain and wind. The Canadian geese wobbled in the sky in the fierce wind gusts, really they did. But we really had fun. We ate at the little snack bar, bought gifts in the shop and lots of apples. I am making apple crisp this afternoon, of course!! The trip over we went through the Jordan River Valley and the Salmon were still there swimming upstream. We ended the ride driving around Torch Lake. A bit of fall color still on the trees.
I have been working on sewing items. I made a oven mitt but not photo worthy because the bias tape I have was too small. I have 30 blocks made for the spool block exchange but we haven't exchanged so no spoiler photos!! I have continued on my pastel pineapples and I have about 8 made only 4 more to go!! I will photograph the top when it is all together.
So stash report= I purchased 1 yard plus 6 fat quarters over the past week. I have a little more than 3/4 of a tote. I need to make one more quilt top or several runners and I will have met my 2009 goal. I better get a move on because it is almost November and I just "realized" that. The short daylight hours of October get my movitvation annually but this year it zapped me. I have to push a little harder in the evenings and sew. And exercise and cook meals. Anyone else have the same problems?
PS my dog continues to be ill with pancreatitis and his prognosis is not great. I am steeling myself for a poor outcome.
