Friday post card

The leaves fall, the wind blows,
and the farm country slowly changes
 from the summer cottons into its winter wools.

Fresh is best. Buy local.
Another sweet project bag...

…it's sized extra large.
I used a plaid flannel (shirt) for the lining.
Life is better on the farm.

fall designs

Mr. b hung my fall barn quilt.

Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.

We encountered this wiley coyote while driving Custer State Park last week.
He barely noticed us as he was intent on hunting for breakfast.
And he did catch himself a nice fat mouse.
Yum, right?

We took a trip to the Black Hills hoping to see some fall.
Turns out we saw fall and winter.

drying dishes

These are just a couple of the embroidered
 flour sack towels I finished while camping this summer.

Embroidery is one of my favorite crafts to do.
Would you believe I rarely use one of my towels?
Just another thing I hoard.

Goodnight Irene...goodnight

I sewed this nightshirt for granddaughter #3.
 She will only wear nightgowns so I'm really hoping this passes.
 She also loves the Disney characters.

"What did the fox say?"

Grandma likes the old fashioned soft flannels for bedtime.
