Last Day of September

I can't believe it is the last day of September!
This past weekend I got to be in the Malabar Farm
In the Spirit of Friends Show.
What a gorgeous day it was, blue sky 
and in the 70's.
My friend, Rhonda-My Glory Stars 
does the show every year and asked me and our friend,
Stacie to do the show with her.
Stacie made thee cutest dried oranges, 
they had JOL faces cut in them with
 tea lights .
Rhonda, had lots of needle punch pieces and lots of other things.
I made concrete pumpkins, sold them all. 
I was hooking this rug during the show.
Finished it today.
It is a Lori Brechlin-Not Forgotten Farms pattern.
It was in the Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine.
Hope everyone enjoys this last day of September!!

Chickens and PHM Sept.Update

 Another month has flown by and it is September 
Primitives Handmades Mercantile update.
I hooked 3 rugs for the update.
This one is my own design.

 I designed this one also. 
 This is a design by Buttermilk Basin.

 My chickens have been laying eggs and I didn't know.
They were laying eggs up on the shelf.
So I put this nesting box up. 
This girl sits up there all the time now.

 I have 1 rooster and the rest are hens. Aren't they pretty?
Until next time....

12 Years?

 This morning I watched coverage of 9/11. 
I watched it as it was happening 
on that day 12 years ago.
I have thought about it but,
seeing it again reminded me how
horrible that day was.
I'm keeping busy hooking today
and finished this rug.
It is a country Stitches pattern.
Isn't this the cutest Fairy garden??
I bought it at Quail Crest last weekend.
I have been collecting and making lots
of things for my fall fairy gardens.
Hopefully, it will cool down and I will 
be in the mood to do it.
It's been so hot I haven't felt like venturing outside.
Until next time...

Harvest Blessings

It's September 5?? 
Fall is in the air but, in a few days it
is supposed to be 90.
We need rain, it is dry here.
Today I finished this rug, it is my design.
Pumpkins are one thing I can't grow.
I always get those nasty bugs that devour
the plants and the pumpkins.
I've noticed pumpkins are appearing
in our area.
This weekend is Quail Crest. 
One of my favorite fall shows, can't wait.
Until next time...
