Touches of Fall

Happy Monday to you.  I was awakened to rain this morning, it was coming down pretty hard; we sure need it.  We got this Mum two years ago for about $5.00; look at how she has grown. I just love it and got another small one for the porch that isn't doing well, so it will probably go in the ground this afternoon.
 We are still on baby watch and I've stopped calling my girl and asking how she is feeling. This little guy will come when it's time; our girl does have her weekly check up on Friday but her dr. thought the baby might be here before that.  My weekend was really relaxed and I didn't get to the quilt; actually I'm just finishing reading The Pioneer Woman's  'Black Heels to Tractor Wheels'.  What a great book this has been; I've followed Ree Drummond on and off now for years and I've watched her shows too.  My girl got it at the library and read it in a day, so I took it thinking when I was at her house and she was in the hospital, I would have something to read.  Oh well.  Ree is definitely a gifted writer and this book is an easy read.
Today, I am hoping to work on the quilt fabric; it is all cut but I have to organize it better before I start working on coordinating fabrics for squares.  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are starting out this new week energized.
Joy to you today!  Noreen & Hunter


  1. Joy right back at you. We have some very plesant weather here, so after MOM trimms all the bushes and stuff like that we will be taking a hike. Nose poke to Hunter.

  2. Hi Noreen,
    I have been catching up with you today and just saw your beautiful quilts! I love them and the patterns are lovely, you even hand quilt Wow!!! you amaze me. I have mine machine top stitched, my hands go numb just hand sewing the binding. Maybe after I have the carpels surgery I will be able to hand sew without my hands hurting. How exciting just waiting for the new baby. Keep us posted.
    Sending hugs, Elizabeth

  3. Good morning! The mum plant is gorgeous! How I would love to get some rain, ENJOY yours. Baby watch is always hard. And your right of course, the baby will come when he is good and ready...but it is soo hard to wait, lol. Quilting today (especially with the rain) sounds wonderful. I have such a busy day ahead..better get busy. I am waiting over here anxiously for the big announcement! HUGS

  7. Glad you enjoyed the weekend and wonderful that you are enjoying rain today. Sounds like perfect weather to work on coordinating the quilt fabrics. Keep us posted about the baby.

  8. Hi Noreen,
    Glad to hear you have gotten rain!
    We could sure use some to put out all the fires & clear the air here & around the country.
    Because of the smoke & weather turning toward fall we have had cooler temperatures during the day & at night. So I am thankful to have a greenhouse full of tomato plants.8~)
    Take care,

  9. The mum is gorgeous, its almost the size of a smal shrub. We have several from last year but none are doing that well, our weather has been pretty crazy though. baby watch is hard isn't it, keep us posted

  10. Oh boy! So hard to wait for babies!!!! Love the Mums!!!
    Keep us posted!!!
