the past week has been FULL of busy~! appointments, visits from far-away family and the fall yard duties have kept me from my internet friends and i've missed you all. the constantly changing and saturated colors of this season have been delighting me on a daily basis.
i hope you're finding your fall to be just as captivating.kale is one of my favorites. it's frost hardy so i'm still managing to keep it alive in a pot on my front porch. the colors and shapes add so much when mixed in with the bright pumpkin oranges, berry branches carrying small scarlet morsels and tall feathery grasses that it sits with.

i've also managed to get a few small projects across the finish line . . .

these last two cards were made for my daughter. i'll send them to her and she'll use them to wish her far away friends a merry Christmas when the time comes.

i've completed my little teddy bear quilt. it's been a good way to use up a bit more of all of my accumulated scraps. i decided that a big stitch using a larger thread would be just right for the "not-too-perfect" look that i wanted for it. i think that i may have mentioned it's for a fundraiser and that i was going to package it up nicely with some books and a teddy bear.
i've now decided that i'm going to help my dh make a primitive little doll bed to go with it. i may even make some cute little linens to include . . . the project groweth . . .

i hope that you are all enjoying the sun warmed days of this golden season of ripe~!!~
