Monday, September 22

Oh, my, it has been awhile but finally......there is something "on the line"!

As is often the case.........the wind was blowing when I wanted to take photos. This was the best I could do when I was playing with my quilts this past Saturday morning. This is a "needs some TLC" quilt. The fans were appliqued on the green background and if there ever was any quilting around the fans, well, it is long gone. But still the quilt has charm. Every old quilt has charm!


I hung the quilt so that those who drove by on Saturday might see the quilt, along with a few others that I placed around the outside of the house. It was Heritage Days this past weekend and I was displaying quilts over at my friend Arlene's house and I wanted to share quilts outside, too. So, I hung quilts on the front porch railings and draped a couple over the lawn chairs.........



 and I hung a few quilts on the back deck railing. They kept blowing off even as I was hanging them!

At one point in the day, I looked over from Arlene's house and could see that all of the quilts had blown off the deck railing so I quickly called my husband and he performed quilt rescue. When I came home and took the quilts down, I discovered he had used a bungi cord to secure them. It was interesting but it worked.
Today, Monday, September 22nd is the first day of Autumn here in our area. I love Autumn and all it's glorious colors. This gorgeous cross-stitch quilt is a lovely compliment to that plump orange pumpkin. :-)

Here's wishing you a lovely day! I am looking forward to a great day of stitching with some wool-stitching friends. I have never met them but we have chatted in the Wool Applique Facebook group.happy Monday!

Quilts on display like that are always so pretty. I'd have to get out and look at them closer.
