I've been away from blogland for a while because we've been having a spectacular Fall. Every day is sunny, clear and nearly 70 degrees. They say it will stay this way for a while, too! I've been doing quite a bit of sewing, too, but most of it is Supreme sewing which I can't show you just yet.
I did finish a little sewing of my own. Do you see the error of my ways? I somehow managed to twist the blocks the wrong way in the top and bottom rows. I can't believe I did this, but I might just leave it and call it my "Maverick" block. Or, knowing me, I'll rip it out and resew those rows before putting the quilt top together. I'm blaming it on the recent full moon!
Check out the blue sky looking to the east from our backyard! Our neighbor's maple always turns first, and ours are last to go. We've done a bit of garden cleanup but there will be more to come once we get some freezing at night. I have no idea why we haven't had a hard freeze yet with the clear days, but I'm not complaining! Even the rhubarb is still producing!
Another reason I've been out of blogland is that we've been doing a few Squash House improvements. The other day I painted the planter box out front. I chose a blue almost identical to the blue in our barn quilt. We had the house painted this summer so everything looks crisp and clean!
Here is a view looking out toward the street at our Dogwood trees. This year they are as red as we've ever seen them! We have a gang of Flicker's that arrive every year to feast on the berries they produce.
As you read this Mr. Squash and I are fishing on the Wallowa River in Oregon. We decided to go over for just the day since the weather is so nice. Trout season ends on October 31st. Hopefully I'll have some great fishing pics on my next post!
