The time has Flown by

Here it is, the first of November - the Summer has gone and now Fall is in it's closing days.  We have had some beautiful days this fall - far more than I expected after the less that stellar Summer.  I have completed a quilt and started several more.

This one is called Spring Garden - and I completed it in September.  I had originally planned to keep it, but then I listened and just knew it belonged to my friend.  I was invited to her surprise birthday party last week - so I gave it to her.  It is a throw quilt - not large enough for a bed but great to cuddle up with on a cold Illinois winter evening.

We had mirror tiles on our entryway wall for many years.  It is a 12 foot tall about 6 foot wide wall and I liked the mirror tiles.  But one night a few weeks ago, one of the tiles fell off the wall - scared my granddaughter out of 3 years growth and shook up hubby.  Anyway they cleaned up the tile and the next day we decided to tear down all the tiles.  Good thing we did as about a dozen more were ready to fall.  We have patched the wall and picked up the paint for it.  I'm also making a wall hanging quilt for there.  It is burgundy and eggshell with gold flecks - in a Storm at Sea Pattern.

This is one form of the Storm at Sea Pattern.  This one is for my Loyal Union Soldier Sampler and is in different colors.  But it gives you an Idea of what it will be.

This is the wall we are redoing - the tiles have been removed and some of the patching is completed.  it is a big job, but will certainly be glad when it is done.
