Warming Up to Fall

As a little height-challenge student of the 4th Grade, Marnie has access to taller friends' wardrobes. This little number fits her perfectly and keeps her warm on autumn days in front of the fire. How sad that she'll grow out of it just a quickly as they did.

APNQ Quilt Show


Nancy Davis and I won Honorable Mention in the APNQ Show in Seattle this summer. The lnk is in the right column if you want to see all the winners. This Mariner's Compass won in Traditionally Pieced. I wish you could see the quilting better because Nancy picked a great variegated thread and the black showed off the quilting very nicely. I think she did all the hard work!

There's a Hole in my Backpack dear Liza








What is that in there? Something is trying to get out!

Why, it's The Dark Lord Chuckles, the Silly Kitty! And she found a hole in Marnie's backpack. I think she wants to go to 4th Grade.

Apple Pie Chow Down



The kids enjoy some Autumn sunshine and hot apple pie. We collected quite a few apples from our tree and we purchased a 20lb box from Eastern Washington, too. Can't have enough apples!

Have you made a Fire yet?


September 25 was the posted day for our first fire of the season. That is a bit misleading because the following week was beautiful and 70 degrees. Nevertheless, it means we were out cutting and splitting Saturday in between conference sessions. We have to Feed the Beast! Note: Jackson is now allowed to drive the lawn tractor with the wood trailer. Please call before stopping by!

Friendly Beasts


There is nothing like catching animals getting along together. Cecil, the chickens, and Chuckles (the silly kitty) are enjoying some fall sun. They just didn't know I would catch them being so nice.
