Fall is Here!

   I have just decided that I am not the best blogger in bloggerland.  I love reading other blogs, but never realy feel like I have anything to say that anyone would want to read but I am going to post anyway. Can I say first, that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, FALL!!!!!  I so love all of the Fall colors and the feel in the air! I even think Fall has it's own smell.  I love seatshirts and jeans and cool breezes and fires in the fire pit!

   I didn't quilt at all last winter, so I am making that my priority this year because I miss working on my quilts. This is one that I started hand piecing a couple years ago, but was unsure of the colors working together and I quit. Well, I got it back out and started on it again and now that it is coming together, I am liking it a little more.  Showed it to my husband however, and he said it wasn't his favorite and that it was Too pink! Well, I have never made a quilt with pink in it and when I started I thought it could be for my grandaughter and the pattern called for a pinkish background anyway so that is what I did.  What does he know anyway!  Would love some honest opinions on it from all of you!


                                                                             

Been working on wood signs too and was going to have a booth at a local fair a coupld of weeks ago but it was an awful weekend as far as the weather goes...rainy and cold and I didn't set up.  I think they even ended up closing up early it was so bad.  Been selling some signs on my ETSY site and at work so that is working out pretty good!






     
My little studio at my farm in Ohio! I love it and really hate that I can't be there all the time to do the things that I want to it!
Maybe one of these days!

  2. Well I have missed you lots, girl! Glad to see you back.

    I'm not a fan of pink but I love that quilt! I think your granddaughter would love it, I know my preteen daughter would.

    Your signs are so wonderful! I'm sure it's not hard for you to sale them. You do such a great job on them. Love your studio! That's the perfect place to sit, relax, and create. I wish I had it.

    Have a grand fall weekend~

  3. Your quilt is beautiful. It look like it was a lot of work. Don't listen to your husband! It's wonderful and you can never have to much pink. My husband doesn't like the fabrics I selected for my niece's quilt but I do so.....
    I love your signs! I saw a lot of signs for sake in PA but didn't buy any. Do you have a website??

  7. Leisha,
    I LOVE the quilt, it is beautiful! your cross stitch snowman is adorable, too. Your farm house picture at the top of your blog is amazing. WE live on a farm, but our house is a more modern looking farmhouse. Sometimes I wish we would have built one that looks more like your picture. I tried, but my honey had a dsay in the house as well, since he was building it! LOL
    I lok forward to reading your blog more often!
    Hugs,
    Betsy
