Autumn is here .....!

I cannot believe that summer is over. Where did it go? Stephen asked me to take down the pool this weekend. I wanted to keep it up just in case we have some summer days and also, partly in protest. Guess what's presently draining! lol

This is what we had for dinner the other night, Tomato Basil Pie!

It was delicious. Thanks Libby for posting your recipe. It's a keeper.

Except for the tomatoes, our garden was not productive this year. Something is causing my plants to die. Hopefully it will be rectified before next year.

On the quilting front, I finished quilting the In the Pink quilt, a pattern by Buggy Barn. I took a picture of the back so that you could see the machine quilting.

I'm getting the hang of panthos. I'm not so nervous and stiff anymore. I can definitely feel the flow! lol

I received some fun mail the other day from a dear friend, Guðrún. Isn't it just the cutest.

Oh... there was some Djupur Lakkris and some other Lakkris goodies, but they're all gone. I now have an addiction to Iceland Licorice. Thanks! lol

I thought I would use this cute stitchery as my blogger identity for when I post a comment. It's just so adorable and so true. Thank you again Guðrún!

Renovation time again in this household. I'm pretty sure this is the last one for the year. ;o)

We had to change the front door and side windows. They were 150 years old! I think they were due! lol

The original door was much wider, I mean it was huge! This will definitely help lower the cost of our heating bill. Winter is coming ya know!

That's it for now! Thanks for stopping by! I enjoy reading your comments!

Have a great day every one!

I love the new icon for you responses. It is so true.

Yep, guess winter is on the way. The days are much shorter and there is that coolness in the air. Time for comfort foods.

The quilting looks great. After trying out the longarms last week, I can definitely see where relaxation is the biggest secret. There is definitely a flow to the stitches when done while relaxed.

The new door looks great. It is wonderful to know that the old door lasted 150 years.

Oh my that saying is so true....I love it, I wish I could find the pattern. Your quilting is coming along nicely, you must be really excited to get your quilts finished.

I know what it's like with reno's in a old house, hubby has replaced all the weather stripping hopefully it will help this winter.

I'm so glad you enjoyed the tomato pie . . .it has quickly become a family favorite around here.
Your quilting looks great. Haven't tried a panto, yet. I'm a little scared *s*

Your panto quilting is looking fantastic! I really like that panto, might have to add it to wishlist.

That pie was the best!! Randy picked a bunch more tomatoes last night. I just might make it for dinner again tonight!

I would love to go on a picture tour of your house sometime. It looks fantastic!!!!

The pie looks fabulous. A quilt shop I go to used to have a tearoom upstairs and they served Shaker Tomato Pie that was so yummy.
