Fall, Fabric, Memories

Grateful for yet another beautiful fall here in "Upstate" New York. 

This year the backyard is much too quiet though -- after having had two very special friends with us for the last 30 years -- it odd to look out there and have them gone -- I'm sure they are both kicking up their heels in horsey heaven -- they earned that reward!

Always cherishing the memories and feeling of Joy that these two brought to so many people - especially our grandkids.   You can see and read about "Chief" here and here... and since we lost spirited "Nuisance" before I was a blogger -- I guess I owe her a post sometime in the near future.

I was very blessed to have had and enjoyed the company of those two -- for many, many years! 

This week I'm preparing to travel to Austin, Tx for a work conference so I'm not getting much done in the way of sewing. 

I did however, manage to find a really Great Deal on some Women of Courage Fabric at a (local to me) Online Quilt Shop for only $7.99 a yard!!  There are still yards on the bolts -- so if you would like to get any of these beautiful fabrics (and more) go visit Cindy at Sew It Is Online and check out the great prices and selection!!

I'm not one to do all that piecing on the WOC BOM quilt (Thankfully I have a talented friend that enjoys all that piecing, Debbie Wick
Debbie -- we need a picture of your stunning completed WOC flimsy!!)

-- but -- Am I in love with those red birds ?  Oh YES I am....   !! I just need to figure out what to do with them! 

Ideas ?  

Leaving you with a special sunset from Tuesday evening....

Life Changes...

Life is Good!
