Hectic Snowtember

First day of Autumn. Whoa, Quilt Market and Festival are just around the corner. The fabric companies are in a panic for designs for upcoming collections. I'm getting ready for Quilt Market.

Remember the hydrangea looking crab apple tree. Now loaded with crab apples.

According to my farmer dad, snow between September 5-10 is a normal occurrence in years gone bye. Then we get a beautiful Indian Summer and the harvest gets done.

First morning
Second day and both days had to shake wet snow off all trees
The kids knew what to do. First snowman of the season.
Since the snow 10 days or so ago, when everything went into shock, it's now summer again. Nature goes on doing their thing, looking beautiful and enjoying the sun.

Late afternoon
Morning Sunrise

Multitask Bed Scarves

Happy New Year! No it's not January. It's September. Everyone gets back into the routine of the grind err, everyday living. Back to school, back to work, back to exercise, back to extra curricular activities AND back to quilting.

As a younger person I always thought I was a great multitasker. Now is a different story. The brain is so full that it takes longer to reference what I need at the time. Not only that, I find that I really can only properly do one thing at a time. Thanks to Morna McEver Golletz, from ICAP - International Association of Creative Arts Professionals, who wrote on her blog about multitasking, I can proudly say I cannot multitask and multitasking is a waste of time.

This summer wasn't a waste of time. The focus was on getting Bed Scarves ready for photos and Quilt Market in Houston. These are the pillow shams that go with the Bed Scarves.
