This is the little calendar quilt I did for October.

Our Halloween display at the quilt shop.

Don't you think that a "Dish-drainer Quilt" is a great idea ???............You could make one for each season and each holiday !! Com'on and get busy and make these cute little quilts for yourself and for gifts.

This is another great little wall quilt that was made by one of the gals who work at the quilt shop....I just LOVE pumpkins !!

We have a sunny day today !! No wind !! So.....that makes for a very nice late October day.

The dogs are sure enjoying these nice sunny days to just lay on the deck and soak up the sun.

My neighbor cleared off the garden, now it is ready for winter.

Just reading that the predictions for our northern winter weather is cold, wet, and lots of snow. Ugh. So..... I might have many snow pictures for the winter posts here on my blog.

Have a great weekend !! See you next week.

Tuesday - October 11, 2011

Last week I packed up the lake cabin and closed the door till spring. The day was so beautiful and warm .....and the lake was like glass.

The water is so clear and clean you can see the ripples in the sand on the bottom of the lake......I watched the fish swim back and forth under the dock.

Most have taken in the docks and boat lifts...............

So......I said good-bye to the lake till spring..........

Now it is time to get busy at home........decorate for Halloween........get ready for Christmas....... lots to do to keep busy till the snow melts and we head back to the cabin.

Where are all the bloggers ???

I am behind in reading all the blogs I follow..........and I noticed that many of the bloggers are behind in writing - LIKE ME !!! These days are so busy for everyone.........end of summer activities.....getting the gardens in........closing up the lake in their sports for fall and winter. Busy times for everyone.
If you live in the upper Midwest - you have had a couple weeks of BEAUTIFUL WEATHER ! Yesterday was 86 degrees........I went to the lake and packed up the food stuff and anything that will freeze over the winter. It was so pretty down there.....and the leaves put on a beautiful show of their colors for the fall season. I took some pictures.......but they are still on the camera.
Off to start my day........hope your day is wonderful.

Beautiful weather !

The harvest is done for another season............

We had a few days of cool weather but now...................We are having such beautiful weather for North Dakota....... (I have seen blizzards other years at this time) Last week we hit 91 here in Fargo. Today is going to be warm again......and maybe another record breaking day tomorrow.

A drive to the lake cabin is in order to empty out the cupboards and close up the cabin till spring.

The color of the leaves are at their peak in most places - you have to go over to Minnesota to see the best leaves. I will enjoy seeing the colors tomorrow.

I have most of the flowers cut off and put to bed for the winter. Pumpkins are making an appearance on the steps of houses letting us know that Halloween is fast approaching.

Hope the weather is great where you are.
