Fall is my favorite season! I could actually say that about all the seasons, but fall really might just win by a nose... I did fall in love in the fall :) I love fall colors, and smells, and food!

Football is also my favorite sport, so the fact that it's starts in the fall is lovely too. We got to go to a Louisville game for Britton's Birthday. We tailgated and everything. It was a blast!

Have you ever seen a lemon drumstick case? Our other dear friend Joe had his birthday in September. He is currently the drummer in a band called the lemonwedges. I couldn't resist using the lemon fabric. I finally mailed his birthday present this week! I am such a slacker about mailing things on time. I finish them and then they sit waiting to go to the post office. Silly me! He should have gotten it- and I hope he likes it. Happy belated birthday Joe!

I am thankful for the joy that I get from being creative and productive. I had such a fun day.

Not dead :)

I haven't died, just been busy living and crafting. My sister, Kristy, has been kindly reminding me for awhile that I should update. :) I have quite a few things to post... it's been months! sorry. I have been busy making the chateau a home. I am loving having our space. I definitely have more projects going at a time now that I have the space...

This was an early September project that has been almost finished since mid-September.... keywords- almost! Sorry Casey! One of my great friends "got" this teris blanket for his birthday... Except I haven't quite finished it.... It is granny squares that are stitched together in their 4s and then together. I need to put this in a more prominent place so I quit skipping over it. Each square is about 4 inches and its 10 squares wide by 16 squares high... So about 40x64. Should keep him warm- if I can get it done.

This is my baby ironing board. The cover was sad and pathetic and so I recovered it using my pillow sham from my dorm room bedding. I loved it and figured putting it someplace I see frequently would bring me more happiness than it hiding in the closet.

I am also going to try to post things I am thankful for... So today I am very thankful for my husband. I am thankful that our self-esteem is found not in ourselves, and that we know where true love and security is found. (can you tell it was an interesting evening)
