THINKING OF FALL




RECENTLY IT WAS TIME TO GATHER MY BUNDLES
FOR MY DRIED FALL ARRANGEMENT.
I ALWAYS THOUGHT THE WILD YELLOW PLANTS AROUND
OUR HOUSE WERE YARROW BUT WAS CORRECTED
BY SOME OF MY FB FRIENDS THAT THIS IS
INDEED TANSY. 


SO I'VE GOT MY TWO BIG BUNDLES OF TANSY
TIED TOGETHER.


AND HANGING IN THE SHED TO DRY.


NOT TOO LONG AGO BRIAN WAS MOWING THE 
LAWN AND NOTICED A LARGE HORNETS NEST 
IN OUR OLD APPLE TREE!  HOW WE MISSED IT 
ALL SUMMER IS BEYOND US AS IT'S PRETTY 
OUT IN THE OPEN ON THE END OF A BRANCH!
I'D BEEN WALKING UNDER IT WATERING MY
FLOWERS AND BRIAN WAS MOWING UNDER IT.
IT'S A WONDER WE DIDN'T GET STUNG.


BRIAN SPRAYED IT SEVERAL TIMES AND IT'S
NOW FALLEN OUT OF THE TREE. IT IS SO 
INTERESTING HOW THEY BUILD THEM THO.


MY BROWN EYED SUSAN'S ARE GORGEOUS
THIS YEAR.  THEY ARE SPECIAL TO ME 
CUZ THEY CAME FROM MY DAD'S GARDEN.
I MISS HIM AND THINK OF HIM EVERY TIME
I LOOK AT THEM. HE LOVED FLOWERS AND
ALWAYS HAD FLOWER GARDENS. I REMEMBER IN
GRADE SCHOOL TAKING OUR TEACHERS FRESH
CUT BOUQUETS FROM HIS FLOWER BEDS.

SPEAKING OF FALL.....I'VE FINISHED A QUILT
I'M EXCITED ABOUT AND WILL BE OFFERING FOR
SALE SOON!  IT'S A NEW DESIGN BY ME AND
IS PUMPKIN JACKS. SO STAY TUNED FOR SOME
FUN PICS SOON!! 

UNTIL NEXT TIME......LORI

A BOWL OF GOODNESS & BARN DOOR


A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO I WAS AT A NEAT
SALVAGE PLACE IN WI THAT HAD SOME OLD BARN
DOORS FOR SALE. I KEPT THINKING ABOUT THEM 
AND WANTED TO GO BACK TO TAKE ANOTHER LOOK.
WHEN BRIAN ASKED ME THIS WEEKEND WHAT I 
WANTED TO DO FOR MY BIRTHDAY I KNEW
IT WAS TIME! HE BOUGHT ME THIS OLD BARN DOOR
FOR ON OUR BACK DECK. IT'S LEANING AGAINST
THE HOUSE AND I HAVE 
SOMETHING IN MIND TO DECORATE IT.


LOVE THE OLD RUSTY HINGES 
AND HOOK!


TODAY MY BFF KATHY TREATED ME TO LUNCH
OUT AND SHE GIFTED ME WITH THESE WONDERFUL 
WOOL BOWL FILLERS!  ALL BUT THE HEART ONE 
ARE IN A CHERI PAYNE PATTERN.
FEELING SPOILED!!


I'M WORKING ON STITCHING A LARGE SAMPLER
I'LL BE OFFERING AS A PATTERN IN A FEW WEEKS

MEET MERCY POWERS.......


THIS WONDERFUL DOLL WAS MADE FOR ME
BY NORMA SCHNEEMAN, A WELL KNOWN 
FOLK ARTIST.  HER DRESS IS MADE OF ANTIQUE
HOMESPUN IN LIGHT BROWN PLAID.
IT LOOKS TO BE AN OLD QUILT BACKING AS
I CAN SEE THE CURVE INDENTATIONS OF
FAN QUILTING. THE FAN PATTERN IS MY
FAVORITE HAND QUILTING DESIGN TO DO SO 
I LOVE THAT ABOUT THE DRESS!
NORMA DOES SUCH WONDERFUL WORK.
I'D LONG WANTED ONE OF HER DOLLS AND
DECIDED TO TREAT MYSELF. THE SAME DAY SHE
CAME TO LIVE AT OUR HOUSE MY NEWEST ISSUE
OF A SIMPLE LIFE MAG CAME!  WHAT A FUN MAIL DAY!!


CLOSE UP OF HER FACE AND OLD HOMESPUN
DRESS.  THE BUTTONS ARE OLD TOO.


SHE HAS AN UNDER SLIP MADE OF OLD FABRIC
AND HER BROWN TICKING SOCKS ARE WONDERFUL!


HERE SHE IS IN HER MAKE~DO CHAIR IN OUR
GUEST BEDROOM.  I THINK SHE LIKES IT THERE.

WISHING ALL A WONDERFUL MEMORIAL 
WEEKEND.  UNTIL NEXT TIME......LORI

CROCKS & BASKETS!


MY FRIEND JULIE OF PRIMITIVE HEARTSTRINGS BLOG
SHARED HER BASKET COLLECTION WITH US
AND ASKED WHAT WE LIKE TO COLLECT.
IN KEEPING WITH HER POST I'M SHARING
MY CROCK COLLECTION TODAY.
















I ALSO WANTED TO SHARE THIS LITTLE QUILT
I JUST FINISHED TO SELL.  IT'S SPOKEN FOR
BUT I THOUGHT YOU MIGHT LIKE TO SEE IT.
I USED A CHERI PAYNE PATTERN FOR THE BASKETS
AND DID MY OWN THING WITH THE FLOWER &
BORDERS.  IT WAS A FUN LITTLE QUILT TO DO.
THE BASKETS ARE PIECED AND THE FLOWER IS
HAND APPLIQUED.




SORRY I HAVE BEEN SO ABSENT ON MY BLOG.
I'LL TRY TO DO BETTER!  

UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI
