Birthday Week

 Home loving, fall crafting and birthday celebrating week. Wonderful days and nights full of so much love and affection.  I made an arrangement, strung some dried leaves for a wreath and became a year older.  It doesn't get much better than this! My husband and children don't give cards for my birthday or for Mother's Day, they write me love notes. I think I look forward to this more than anything. My sweet husband custom ordered the birthday cake...lots of flowers. Yep, I'm an icing girl. No homemade cake for me!

Today it's cloudy and a little rainy, and you know I love that too! What a great way to end a perfect week!  I hope you're having a great Saturday, thanks so much for stopping by!

Friday Fun

It's been a gorgeous week here. The air has a crispness to it in the morning and a lovely warmth in the afternoon. Today there isn't a cloud in the sky and I am so happy to be off work and enjoying this lovely day! I have some plant moving to do in the garden, but feel I need to wait a bit longer, as it's still too warm in the afternoon.  There are still a few things in the garden, the most striking being the dichondra in the urn. It is so pretty and full, does anyone have any tips on overwintering it indoors?  I had one I was able to keep alive last year, but I ended up having to cut it way back. Should I give it some fertilizer? I kept it at my Dad's. He has a sun room, though it doesn't get much sun, but it is bright. Also, should it be kept damp, or should it dry out between waterings?

I hope you're having a great Friday! Thanks for stopping by!

October Days

It's been so nice lately. Work has been good,  and home time has been wonderful. That's what I like about the fall and winter seasons, you seem to have more home time. Our temperatures are still so mild, but it's just nice to be home with the acorns plopping all over the yard and the squirrels busy collecting them for their winter fare.  I bought some pansies today to have a little fall and winter color. I still have some vinca blooming madly in the garden! They are actually blooming better now than they ever did during the summer. 

I am stitching on the 10th block of Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow. Of the 12 blocks, there is only one block which I have not enjoyed working on.  I am still not finished with it. I work on it now and then, knowing eventually I'll get it done. All the other blocks have been a delight to see them come together. The current one is very easy and should be finished with time for me to work on the other, or to get a head start on the next block, which will be a bear to stitch. It's a solidly stitched block, with a lot of black.

I hope you're enjoying your weekend. I am so excited about having two 4 day weeks ahead. I'm off Friday this coming week, and Monday next week. Yah!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wednesday Talk

Every day things seem a little more fall-ish.  A few more leaves on the ground, a tinge in a few of the trees. It's so exciting! I love how the moss starts fattening up as the temperatures drop and we get a little more rain. My whole front yard is almost all moss.  So pretty!

I'm getting in the mood to make another small quilt project. I'm thinking of a wall hanging. I would like to hang one over the sofa, but I just can't seem to find what I want. Half the fun is the hunt, so I'm not discouraged!  I loved the fall table runner I made in the summer and wonder about making another one, but a bit bigger and in a different color scheme.  I really need a picture though. I'm not very good at visualizing what I want.  I'll keep looking, Thank goodness for Pinterest!

I hope you've had a great Wednesday, thanks so much for stopping by.
