This week.......

I've been doing a little bit of everything.....some holiday papercrafting.............
some apple picking...........

our apples needed to come off the trees.......before the hard frost comes in.



some applique..............


These are the new blocks going in my Family Reunion quilt.........

I don't know about you, but we usually had our Family Reunions in the canyon and it was a standing rule that the first one there was in charge of hanging the "paper plate sign" to show the way to the other family members.
My brothers and sisters and I always looked for our family name among the many signs nailed to several posts along the way, as our station wagon wound it's way further up the canyon.


another word block I've added to the quilt that describes family.......LOVE



Corn on the cob to add to the picnic.....ready to eat......eating..... and eaten!
Of course you must use those fun little cob holders so you're fingers don't get burned....

My studio is full of drawings.... patterns.... fabric...paper...glitter ....glue and whatever else that I've stacked in there.... What a mess!
I seriously should take an afternoon to put everything away but I'm busy!
The holiday crafting begins just as the holiday decorating begins.
It's ongoing at my house throughout the season. I took a class at Heartland Paper this week with my friends Shanna and Beth. We had a ball! The top photo was taken there....so cute.
I hope you'all are getting ready for a trick or treating weekend......

A mess shows signs of creativity! You're certainly creative and have the most fun things to share. Your paperplate sign is funny and the corn on the cob looks good enough to eat. Have a wonderful weekend.

Happy Halloween Lori. It looks like you are all ready. Love the paper plate sign. Yes, we marked our paths many a time with a plate.

You sure have been busy. Your corn cobs are great!

Amanda said...

It amazes me how you think of every little detail such as the lines on the paper plates to the nails that you use to hang the plate on a post!

I can't wait to see what you're creating for the holidays!

Sherry said...

OMG! I love that you too did the paper plate sign thing too. Lori, your work is just so much fun to follow. So glad you share these fun things with us. The Family Reunion quilt is going to be my favorite, I can tell. :)
