The fall weather is definitely upon us currently in Texas. Of course, that could change at the drop of a hat and we’ll be back to 90 degree temps. But it has been in the 60s mostly, and also rainy and overcast. I actually enjoy this kind of weather. I like it more when I can snuggle up at home though. The cats apparently feel the same way because there were no empty laps this weekend. And of course, our fall is always ushered in by Eric and I going to the State Fair. I’m working on a post to show you my pics from that outing and should be able to share in the next day or so (the pumpkins above are from our day at the fair). As for this weekend, I spent most of it indoors, except for Saturday morning. I was able to get back into the groove and go for my 5k training walk on Saturday morning. Of course, for our training walks, we walk a 5k anyway, so doing the actual 5k is not much of a stretch! But, I was glad to get back to it this weekend, having missed the past two weekends. Our next 5k is this coming Saturday, so I’m looking forward to having another one completed – that makes four so far this year!
I spent some time this weekend stitching on Jenny Bean. I am so in love with this piece. I finished filling in the side of the house and moved on to the front. Now I have a door!
And I finally got around to doing what I’ve been meaning to do for several weeks now, working on the baby quilt. I washed and ironed my fabric, did some cutting and sewing and now have about half a quilt top’s worth of blocks. I’m really pleased with how these 30s repro fabrics look together. Aren’t they fun?
I hope to get some more done on this next weekend. I think it will be so cute when it’s finished, and I’m really happy with it. Even though it’s all blues, I love the pops of yellow, red and orange in it.
I am grateful for date night with Eric – so much fun!
