Loose Leaf Pattern #27
Released in 2007
The official beginning date for Fall 2017 is Friday, September 22. For me, fall begins the day after Labor Day. School started the day after Labor Day and for me that marked the end of summer vacation, the beginning of the school year, and a change in the daily activities. The school year now starts in early August. The daylight hours are growing shorter, there is a slight drop in the temperatures and daily routines are changing. Labor Day, a three day weekend, a change to catch up, and catch my breath.

I saw this design in a magazine and thought it would make a great rug for fall and a way to use up my fall colored wool.
This is my pansy basket I made a few weeks ago, a good walnut stain improved its looks. Filled with candy corn and happy smiling pumpkin faces. Makes me want to smile back.
The quilt on the sofa is changed. This is a Jo Morton cheater quilter, the fabric is either Spice Market or Cinnamon and Spice--one of my favorite fabric lines. One day, I let my mind wander and doodled the quilting patterns.
Cheater panel: fabric made to look like it has been quilted.
Hmm, checking my memory bank these are designs from Plum Street, Notforgotten Farm, Chessie and Me and Carriage House.
Fall colors are wool appliqué they just go together

Yes, I change the samplers. Love everything about this sampler: the border, the weeping willow, mouse, fish bones and the saying is found on many samplers.
The beginning of fall and so many fun and wonderful events to look forward to: quilt shows, corn mazes, warm soups, football. Life is good.
