I must admit, I did NOT accomplish much quilty this weekend. Ran errands with DH all day Saturday, watched football a lot on Sunday, and actually cooked LOL. The Chiefs did not fare so well, losing in OT, but looked more promising than I thought they would against arch-rivals, Denver Broncos. Our star quarterback was injured with a head injury last week and the stand-in had not started in 2,121 days. At least we have some hope. On the cooking front I made a huge pot of vegetable soup and an apple pie. Is it fall yet??? This morning I drug out a cinnamon toast Yankee candle---mmmmm, yep, fall is in the air. Put out a few autumn decorations. Fall is my mostest favorite season of all. The top picture is a maple leaf vintage quilt I put on my dining room table. Although not really fall colors, I have always loved this two -color quilt. The hand quilting is exquisite. The next photos are some mid-80s books by Joan Vibert & Linda Brannock. Some bloggers had recently mentioned Linda Brannock. I have always admired her patterns and treasure these early works. The back cover that shows all the little folk dolls is precious to me. I must have made a gazillion of these little folk dolls in the 80s. They were so fun, so full of personality, and made great little "thinking of you" gifts. I had them all around my home, made pins out of them, used them as package ties---just adored them. Wished I had saved some.
