Blogging friends are the best! I've been teasing Candace at Squash House Quilts for years about growing a plaid pumpkin for me. Look what arrived in the mail!
The pumpkin arrived with a table runner to match. Candace I love it! She also made a set for my sister Gail. How lucky can two girls get? It looks perfect on the coffee table. Mazey promised me that she wouldn't touch them.....and she hasn't. She knows how special this is to me. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness Candace.
So yesterday I decided to make a Halloween pillow. By early afternoon I put the finishing touches on it......not so fast.......take a look at the bottom row of double flying geese that I stitched on upside down!
Mazey, Mr. Joe and I took a walk down to Snowflake Lake this afternoon. I hope the trees hold on to their colorful leaves for another week. The lodge you see nestled in trees, is the location for my quilting retreat next week. I'm thinking the girls will take breaks and walk around the lake during the day.
Our little grand kids love spending time in this lake during the summer. The water is usually bone-chilling melted snow, but it doesn't seem to bother them.
While we were there, a flock of geese came in for a landing. You would never know Mazey is a hunting dog. She could have cared less about them.
