It's the little things that count

Happy Labor Day Weekend! The hot humid summer sure flew by. It's been a lot cooler and less humid lately. I love it. Fall is my favorite season. But it's still officially summer. I found this little quilt at a garage sale the other day. I could not resist the fall colors so I bought it.

Time to rearrange things in the living room again and put out fallish type things. Haven't figured out where I'll put this little quilt yet.

I'm still working on my Knits Picks Spring/Summer Shawl. I'll probably still be working on it when spring comes around again, lol!

I'm ready to change colors again. This thing is taking me forever. I'm a slow knitter. But I do other crafty things too besides knit all day and night. I'm almost done with a quilt I'm also making. I just need to hand sew the binding down and that one will be done. Next one is a Christmas quilt. Been gathering the fabrics for that one. But it's way too early to think about Christmas. Especially since I'll be losing my job soon. The stress level is very high here.

I sewed my daughter a little pouch. We had a pickle event a couple weeks ago that made us laugh so when I saw this fabric I just had to buy it and make her something.

Can't wait for her reaction!

My Aunt sent me this little cross stitch ornament the other day. It cheered me up. It's always the little things that make me smile the largest. I need to hang it in a place of honor.

Hope you're enjoying the nice long Labor Day Weekend!

I'm not a robot It is hard to tell about the letters (if they are capitals or small). We are enjoying the change from summer to fall/winter). Terlingua is at the far tip of Texas. Hughely a nice place to live.
