I love fall mums, pumpkins and ornamental cabbages so that is what I filled up my planter with. I love how it turned out. Now I can enjoy it all fall long.
Hoping you are all having a wonderful Sunday.

I love to decorate for fall. My favourite time of year. I love this trencher filled with Indian corn, Pumpkins, and Gourds.

We just got home last night from having a great 3 day vacation in Maynooth, Ontario. The weather was gorgeous and the colours of the trees were amazing. I just love fall for the gorgeous colours of the leaves and the crisp morning air. We spent some fun times with our sister and brother in law. My sister in law Sandy is a wonderful cook, so we had some delicious meals while we were there. We stayed in the cabin on their property, so cozy. We drove into town on the second day and we visited my favourite shop in Bancroft, "The Old Tin Shed". I always love to go there. Kit went with us too and she had a great time. Lots of walks through the woods and new scents to sniff along the way. Yesterday on the way home a black bear crossed the road in front of us. That was so exciting to see. We stopped on the way home and had a delicious lunch at the "Halibut House" in Alliston. The best we have ever had.

I think she wanted to stay there.

You can see Kit to the left.
She is probably looking for chipmunks.

She gave me lots of vegetables to take home. Her gardens are amazing!

Happy Monday to you all. Just quilted this Rail Fence quilt for a customer. I just love how it shows the texture of the quilting when the sun shines on it.

I just got home from a great weekend in Michigan. I stayed at my good friend Earlene's house and it was just such a fun time. We always have so much fun together. Her and her husband took me to dinner last night to a little town called HELL......Hell Michigan. I had a delicious Perch dinner with fries and coleslaw and red wine. Today we went to the Early Homestead show in Holly Michigan and Earlene was a vendor there. I saw lots of friends that I met through blogging and was told they missed my blog posts. I noticed I hadn't posted since November of last year, so I had better not be such a slacker. There was so many wonderful antiques for sale and fall hand made decorations. Love this show. I picked this kit up the other day to make this halloween quilt. It is called Costume Maker's Ball. I will post some pictures of it when I get it finished. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
