A new week.......

came upon me rather quickly. I have had some great walks over the past few days.... here is some of our wonderful scenery......every day the leaves are more beautiful and there are more colors....











We have had bears around the last couple of weeks, as there are many many little berries just waiting to be feasted upon.... so far I haven't seen one.... but there is lots of "poops" around, so I am careful not to walk too early in the morning, and if I do I carry a whistle and an air horn, just in case. Magpie, the Boston Terrier, almost had a run in with a porcupine a few days ago... she was investigating in the shrubs and I noticed something moving that I thought was furry... but it wasn't furry... I think we were exceptionally lucky... she didn't get too close but if it had been any closer we might have had a nasty accident. My adventures in the wild!!



I finished a great little table runner a few days ago... it is wool and hand appliqued, using a blanket stitch.... I bought it as a kit and I think it looks so cute.... I spent most of this afternoon quilting.....








and received this great swap in the mail yesterday.... it was a "craft" swap, from England, and I was so excited with all the goodies.

Thought for the Day
Earth's crammed with heaven, And every common bush afire with God; And only he who sees takes off his shoes; The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning

The leaves look so beautiful while they are turning colors. Something I do miss here in Florida. So I am working on a fall wall hanging with leaves and all. Thank you for sharing a pic of the lovely goodies you received.

I love the autumn best of all, when I was a child I used to wish I had a blanket that captured all the colors of fall and the crisp cool air and wrap it around me. Maybe that's why I'm a quilter...

Your photos are wonderful.
