It's Fall Ya'll and Gettin' in the Groove

Hello Folks! Yep, I'm still around -- I've just been in a 'funk' since the passing of my sweet husband and haven't been posting. I'm really trying to get into the groove of things again -- it is just hard to stay in focus. I am going to do better about posting on my blog and sharing with you what I'm doing.

It's Fall -- my very favorite season. Fall makes me think of beautiful turning leaves, cooler weather, campfires, Thanksgiving, etc. My husband was a big bow hunter and I loved going with him to the deer lease (yes~wives were welcome on this lease). We would sit around the fire and just enjoy visiting with friends. I always made sure that I took some type of handwork or a good book to read to keep me busy while he was in the woods. I won't be doing much of that type of activity any more but that doesn't mean I have to stop enjoying the beautiful fall!

Speaking of Fall, Shawnee, over at Shawnee's Flirty Apron Swap is doing something different for Fall. Instead of aprons, we will be swapping TABLE RUNNERS! Isn't that fun? I love me some table runners and use them (along with small quilts) for decorating in my home. When I read her idea of swapping table runners, I was really excited. I said to self, "Poor Pitiful Self, I think this will be just the thing you need to do to get you back in that studio and working on projects" so I immediately signed up! You should go over -- no, you should RUN over, and sign up to join the fun. The deadline to sign up is September 30 with mailing date of October 20-30 (date depends on whether you are a new swapper). I hope you will join us!
