Today wound up being laundry day as neither Monday nor Tuesday were feasible. Since D was out on business the entire day, I knew I could get it all finished as well as some extras that the construction and new bathrooms made necessary. That and still more putting away, looking for missing items, and tidying in general kept me busy all day. Well, to be honest I did spend time on the computer since D wasn't needing it for business.
Then I changed the calendar pages in the kitchen and my studio. Uh-oh, it's October, and the quilt show is October 18 & 19th! That means that I have a little more than two weeks to finish the second quilt. I'm going to have to set aside other activities until that is done.
It's a good thing I took care of the fall decorations before now as I'm not going to have that kind of spare time for a while.
This is a simple fall look for the top of the wooden pantry in the kitchen. The only addition is the bouquet; everything else has been there since the kitchen work was completed.
Here is the kitchen table at dusk with the hand- and machine-pieced table runner I designed several years ago. I finally found some gimp for the embroidery I have planned for the borders, but that won't be done for - well, for a while! Closer to the window is the Halloween tree my father-in-law gave me a long time ago for my classroom. It comes out every year, and it reminds me of him and gives me great pleasure.
Also in the kitchen on the pass through between kitchen and family room is the goblin town that D gave me. It was in the entry of October 31, 2013 with the Halloween tree so I didn't take another photo today.
Tomorrow I will probably finish with the displays in the family room. Until then, have a happy and healthy Thursday tomorrow!
