Sunshine Sunday

"A ray of sunshine, a balmy breeze
Are a gift from God above...
He also gives us faithful friends
To warm our hearts with love.

It's a beautiful, sunny weekend here in Michigan...a nice change since we have been getting a lot of rain and colder temps. I've missed my little blog.

First, I want to thank all of you for your sincere and lovely comments after my last post. Every word was a balm to me. Things are perking along here at the 'Acre. My hubby, a sweet and sensitive guy, has had a rough couple of weeks. For now he is doing some contract work....not his dream but a blessing all the same because he needs to stay busy and it sure helps financially.

Now to catch up on a few other bits........

I mentioned last time about our anniversary. It was such a treat to get away overnight. We drove down to Ohio for the Country Living Fair. They have a vast assortment of crafts people selling their wares.......set on the grounds of a little historic village. We had a warm day and a good time.

Someday I want to make a quilt like this...I like applique.

In other news, I finished one sock and have started on the other. Also continuing the work on Timothy's sweater vest. No sewing lately and only a little crochet. I'm still hooked on making the little motifs.....they are perfect for filling short snippets of time.

I came across these sweet little fall plates and pumpkins. I love pretty dishes but have only a small collection. These will be fun to set the table with each autumn.

I love the little deer.
And....since it's's my favorite pumpkin.

Pumpkin says, "not another picture."

Oh well, hope you are enjoying my favorite season....I'm off to enjoy a cup of tea.
