Happy Fall Ya'll!

Happy Fall! So hard to believe it's October once more, our weather changed in a flash, flip flops to sweaters, AC to turning the heat on. I'm not quite happy to give up my flip flops just yet, but there are a lot of other things I love about this time of year. The changing trees, pumpkins and Mums and apple cider. And Halloween doughnuts!! Would you just look at these, could they get any cuter! Our Grandsons helped Hubby pick these out Sunday morning at Krispy Kreme. 

We had a fabulous Sunday, a very short visit from the Oklahoma Grandsons and daughter. By short I mean they were only in town for about 6 hours but we'll take any time we can get whenever we can get it! During our whirlwind visit we went to the apple cider festival in Louisburg, they have a cider mill where you can see the cider being made and of course you can purchase it nice and fresh. Kettle corn, pumpkin patch, corn maze, fiddlers too, a nice little adventure on a pretty fall day. 
Our son Jon and his girlfriend joined us as well. On our way back we had an early dinner, BBQ at Jack Stacks, and then it was time to drive them to the airport.... the small plane airport. They flew up for the day and back with friends on a charter jet, yep, these kids know how to roll LOL! 

Saturday I got my beloved sewing machine back, it had been in the shop for a tune up. You sure never know how much you miss something until it's gone. I have my Hello Kitty machine as a back up, but it does not have the bells and whistles my Elna has on it. So while it was gone I switched over to some hand sewing with wool. Love my wool too, nothing more relaxing than sitting and stitching by the fire or in front of the TV. And now I have a new design to show you! Who doesn't love a snowman, they never fail to make me smile. A sleigh full of presents, this little guy is fast and fun to make up for the holidays. He's so cute you'll want to leave him out all winter long! 

I have another wool design in the works, but this week I am mostly thinking about doing a little housework. You will notice I said thinking.... but truly I need to take action. My friend Patty is coming to visit on Saturday, all the way from Buffalo NY! I have known Patty for 30 plus years, ever since we lived there so long ago. She is going to spend a week with me and I am very EXCITED! Girlfriend time, some much needed girl time!

Another fun design, I like doing small pieces, great for quick projects and gift ideas.

It is a beautiful time of year and a fun weekend for a trip to the cider mill. I'm home in my jammies recuperating from something I caught from my friends at work (isn't it too early for this?), but think I may be up to doing some stitching this afternoon. ~Roberta
