Fall, my new favorite season
When I taught, fall was my least favorite season. My leisurely summers were over and it was back to the grindstone. Plus after fall was winter, a long tough season here in the Midwest.
Now that I am retired, I love fall! I am positively giddy! I live in a condo so I can just enjoy those gorgeous leaves, no raking! I made this quilt with fabrics a dear friend gave me. I hang it on my condo door and it's perfect before I want the pumpkins and turkeys of the fall holidays.
This quilt I machine quilted on my sewing machine, before I had my Gammill. Tomorrow I will be home from my travels and picking out all the bad stitches I made in the t-shirt quilt so I might not be so chipper.
Fall is a new favorite but ripping out stitches will never be one!
