Happy Autumn!

Today is the first day of my favorite season, Autumn, and what a beautiful day it was too.

Of course the Autumn decorations were brought out and put up at my house.  I didn’t go overboard this year, as I have been known to do in years past.

I did just a few things this year.  I decided to do “groupings” this year.

The scarecrows gathered together to hang out by the oak and cedar chest.

The turkeys flocked together on the top of the piano.

The pumpkins rested next to the leaves on the cedar chest.

The floral arrangements added their Autumn color to the mix.


There is also a Autumn wreath on my front door, though I don’t have picture of it.  I like the yellow, orange and orange-red leaves against the red door.

You may wonder why Autumn is my favorite season.

It is because in the fall when all the leaves begin to change color, and I look across the valleys with their array of yellow, orange, red, and dark greens, I imagine it as a beautiful quilt the Lord has laid out over the earth for me enjoy.

It’s the cool mornings, seeing the moon hang low in the western sky as the sun rises in the east and the crisp evenings when the stars are out, twinkling like jewels in the sky.

It’s the smell of cut hay and of camp fires and roasting marshmallows.

You might say it’s the last HURRAH before winter sets in.

You may have noticed I have added two new pages.  One is my personal testimony of my coming to know Jesus Christ as my Savior.  The other is a Prayer Request page.  I encourage you to check them out and if you need prayer for anything, please use the Prayer Request page and share it  with others you know who need prayer support.
 I had plans to work on my log cabin quilt this weekend but for some reason my machine was wadding up the thread on the underside.  I’m so glad I did a test run on scraps.  I cleaned my machine and re-threaded it but it still wadded up the thread.  So, I figured it may be the needle, but of course I had no new needles on hand.  So I bought new needles.  Hopefully that will be the solution to my problem.  I have tried them out yet, but will before the week is up.   Not sure what to do next if the new needle doesn’t fix it.
Got any suggestions?

Until next time,

God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
