Autumn In and Out

Just a few fall pictures on a beautiful autumn day in NH.

One of my fall quilts.
I love amateur oil paintings and love the fall colors in these.
A table runner made last year.
A vintage quilt top purchased many years ago at a yard sale.

Still not peak color where I live but it's getting there.
My buffet display with the picture of my grandson from last year that my daughter in law took. I call it "Pumpkin Boy" and you can read about it here.

Then there's Miss Penny who has decided that this is her quilt. She seeks it out every day. I like how she matches it but I was planning on putting it away after Thanksgiving. Do you think she'll let me?
I hope your autumn is a beautiful as ours always is in NH.


  1. Miss Penny's quilt has CATS on it!
    She probably thinks you made it just for her!

  2. What glorious fall photos. We are still mostly in the summer mode - a record day of heat on Wednesday. Still the leaves are beginning to fall from my neighbor's trees. If only they turned a pretty color before they all landed in my yard *s*

  3. I love autumn photos of all kinds and these were fun. I think your table runner is especially wonderful.

  5. I adore your NE Autumn! It's all so beautiful and tranquil. I see the little baby in the pumpkin photo with the pumpk'n hat very cute.

  6. Just wanted to drop by and thank you for weighing in on my recent post. Everyone's thoughts and opinions are very valuable to me.


  7. I saw your name over on Pioneer Woman and had a to take a peeksee!

    Love your quilts! And I was taken by surprise that I have two of your yelloware bowls! I've a larger version of your small pink/white stripe bowl, and the one with a lid? I have that bowl with no lid. :)

    I've given up trying to keep cat fur off of anything in my house...big sigh.

I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
