Still working away

Well, our house didn't sell in the 6 months we had it on the market. BUT!!!! A really nice couple contacted us through a friend and they are leasing it for two years. His job moves them every two years or so, and they moved in the day after our realtor contract expired, so we are still good. No cash in our pocket, and we have to wait to build our garden garage here at the new house, but equity is still being built up in the Kansas house in the next two years, so why complain?

The weather here has still been glorious, with a few days of rain here and there. Enough moisture and enough cool nights to have the trees start turning their beautiful yellows, oranges and touches of red. I need to remember to take my camera out with me for pictures in the country. I missed getting pictures of the sunflower fields just southwest of us when we were out for a drive last week. Now, their heads are all hanging down, waiting for harvest.

In the meantime, I actually found time to sew. I went to play work at Needlenest Friday and I ended up bringing home a sample to make for them. It's the new line from Mary Englebreit that starts with a panel in the center. Of course, I forgot to bring home the final red border fabric, but I can do that quickly when I take it back on Monday or Tuesday. Isn't it cute with the prairie points? The entire thing will be 60" X 64" finished.

Here's Tall Ships - a block you rarely see made anymore. I just got it made for a friendship group monthly exchange where the person asks you to make the block of her choice, and supplies the fabric.

And of course, I couldn't sew without my helpers. Lazy things, though! I finally got another chair to sit in because they insisted they needed to keep this chair warm!
