I've missed you!

I'm here, I'm here! I do apologize for letting so much time go between postings. I have all the usual excuses...I've been busy and I haven't been overly-crafty lately. But I'm back! School starts tomorrow so I'm sure I'll have more time to blog. Have you had a good summer? It's been fun but I'm looking forward to getting back into our school year routine.

Big news...Dave won first place for his tomatoes and second place for his garlic at the New York State Fair!

The fair was so much fun. Dave's brother and his family came with us this year which was great. Annabelle and Mason enjoyed the rides..

And here are A & M with their cousins in our backyard...

We're bummed that we live so far apart (they're in RI)...we have so much fun when we get together!!

On September 1st the kids and I got the fall decorations out. A bit early but don't you think that date unofficially starts the season?

I made this wall-hanging last year with a kit from Pumpkin Patch Primitives. It's wool applique on flannel and cotton. This is one of my favorites!

Did you make it to Joann's over the weekend? They had big sales. I got some warm and natural batting, a rotary blade, and two cute fabrics.

This cute pink one was on clearance for $3/yard, plus it was 10% off.

This is one of their "snuggle flannels." I see pillowcases out of this!
I do have more to show but I'll save that for the next post...I need to go and help the kids enjoy their last day of summer vacation! Have a great day all!

  1. Welcome back! Sounds like you have been enjoying the last of summer. Your fall decorations are very cute. I love the wool wall hanging.

  2. Glad to see you back! Congrats to Dave on the win at the fair.
    You have been busy! I am going to get my Fall pretties out this week. Love your stitchery and the fabrics from JoAnn's!
    I really like your blog background ... you will have to check mine out! They are the same!!

  3. Yeah! I've been waiting for another post :) Love the pictures of A and M with the cousins and what cute fabrics!
