This weekend we are having houseguests and I decided it was high time I got out the rest of the fall decorations. I changed things up a bit this year-always a good thing to keep the seasonal furnishings feeling fresh.
Hope my guests won't mind carrion crows pecking at the centerpiece.
Anyway, it's always tremendous fun to have folks over to celebrate the season, or any other excuse! Eva will be one of the guests, and I know she will approve of at least one of the items on the menu--mac and cheese.
Can you even believe it will be October this weekend? Where on earth did September go? I love September and it seemed to pass by in a flash. I think because it was so darn hot all month I spent it inside and missed it.
I did do a bit a sewing on my day off, in between the decorating. I've been making half square triangles for the Single Wedding Ring Blocks, using a little back up machine I have in the closet. My regular sewing machine has been in the shop for four weeks, so I decided to call the repair guy to see what the status was. Apparently, it has been finished and waiting to be picked up for some time now. And just how was I to know that, you might ask? It is up to the customers to check in regularly with the repair shop to see if their machines are ready, don't you know? They are much too busy to call people who are anxiously waiting to get their equipment back. It could have been there forever before I got a phone call, I swear.
Deep breath. I am so glad to get my Bernina back so I can return to my Halloween Bounce borders.
Arrgggh. If that man put a sticker on my machine, I tell you I will spit tacks.
