How time flies is so true......it was just November 2 and here we are at November 16th, and I haven't accomplished anything yet this month. I feel as though I am always busy. But have nothing to show for it. I guess it is just called busy work. LOL I have been working on 2 quilts and I am almost done with the small angel quilt. It is pretty cute. I hope to have it done by Wednesday so I can share it at a meeting. LOL....................
Last week we went to a friends in northern CA........she had these persimmons and I just couldn't take to many pictures of them. They were all lined up on a table and looked so orange.....lol........just loved the color. Well have a great start on your week. Agnes

Fall time and again it is "fall back time". So now we will be getting up in the sunlight and driving home from work in the dark. Never have been able to get use to this whole time change thing. I think they should leave it on one thing and call it good. It takes a week to get adjusted to the new time either way.
I love fall for all the beautiful colors, soft hues and shadows. It doesn't last very long but it is surely my favorite time. So I will just relax and enjoy the remainder of fall with glee. :)
Fall gives me more time to sew, I have been working on a quilt for gift. It has been a bit more challenging then I thought. Hopefully the quilting will bring it all together. There was a lot of flying geese and each border had something new on it. It seemed difficult to make each border fit perfectly. I will post a picture so you can see my progress. Take care and have a great Monday......Agnes
In October we traditionally make a trek up to our local river to see the trees with their colorful leaves and to enjoy the slow moving waters of the river. In the summer and spring the river is fast and furious. Hubby took his fly pole and fished for a while. He caught several fish, being the "Catch and Release" fisherman that he is, he returned each fish to their watery home, so another fisherman would have them to catch on their, fishing trip. Annie (our dog) as has to lick the fish before fisher guy returns the fish to it's home. Some how this lets Annie feel like she is part of the fishing. Silly yes... We enjoyed the afternoon then drove to a small town on the river for some lunch. Thursday's special was "chili and corn bread", it was real yummy. Followed with a few homemade cookies and some delightful conversation with the owner of the cafe. As every other year it turned out to be another favorite day in October. :)

Goodmorning ladies ..... hope your having a beautiful October morning. I know October means some cold weather just around the corner for some of you. (I'm sorry about that) but in California we don't get much of that real cold weather. Sometimes that is nice, it always looks so pretty where you in the east live with the snow and all. But I am sure I would be really tired of it real soon. Just think of all the sewing and quilting time you have during those bad weather days. :) I have few little items to post today, I had made these little bags to put things in or use to give with a small soap in the bag, this past spring. And a pic of the beginning of my taco's last night. Nothing important, just fun stuff. Hope you enjoy seeing them.

Well, we just returned from a morning walk and it wasn't as adventurous as yesterday. A young black lab decided to join us in our walk yesterday and we could not get him to go home where ever that was.....so he just kept following us home. He had a tag and I called his owner. Had a hard time getting an answer it kept throwing me into voice mail and voice mail would not let me leave a message. So finally it said I could use a number page and I did and "it worked"....yeah. So they picked him up in the evening after work. They didn't know how he was getting out....he was really a beautiful dog. We have a golden retriever named Annie and she was so happy to have "Yogi" (his name) to play with all afternoon. But Yogi decided to eat a few things.........a basket we had on the patio for 3 years and the container that we kept Annie's food in. Oh well .....everything turned out for the best and Annie had a play day with Yogi.
Here it is fall time. My most favorite time of the year. Everything has this sort of golden hue, a sepia color. Not sure about the sepia thing. But I will go with it anyway.
So a little about myself, sewing is my obsession. I make quilts, aprons, bags, and just little giftie things to give to friends. This is really a great time to sew, as you can make things for hostess gifts, and christmas gifts.
I also like to take pictures of what I am sewing and cooking. Always taking pictures of food. I guess because I love food. lol................Tonight I had a chocolate break down ........had to dive into the Halloween candy to cure my attack......:| Well it is really late here and I need to get some sleep. Thanks for stopping by and reading my stuff. Have a great day tomorrow.......agnes
