Fall continues on

I so love the color of this tree...just one of the little joys of my day is looking at it each chance I get. This photo was taken two weeks after the previous post photo. Fall continues here in Oregon, cool crisp evenings and delightful sunny days. I so enjoyed sitting in the chair this weekend soaking up a few moments of sun, after our bulb planting marathon. We planted over 300 bulbs on Saturday and on Sunday, I could barely move!

In terms of quilting I'm working on placing binding on the two baby quilts, in preparation for our Thanksgiving trip to Texas. I've also been working on a Christmas quilt, which I'll share in a future posting. Today, I went into the quilt shop in Newport, at the coast, and managed to walk out with buying anything! A stash buster success story!

Tomorrow we celebrate Halloween and my birthday! Always a fun day watching all the kids coming to the door. Of course, as a child it was always a great day, as the party after trick or treating was at my house. For the past several years my son has had some type of "surprise" party each year...once it has become a tradition, it is no longer quite the same surprise. However, I don't have any hints or think there will be a party this year...but then again, it may be a true surprise!

Such beautiful fall pictures. It's fun to see the difference in just a couple of weeks. Sending wishes for a very Happy Birthday! May your day be filled with friends and loved ones and lots of cake (or candy).

Happy Birthday! Thanks for showing us the patio in fall colors - it's beautiful! Don't you just love fall - unassuming trees you just walk by without noticing them - and kazam - wow! You have no problem noticing it now!

I love the colors. I do miss this intense color changes in the north. I live in TX and we are still having 80 degree weather.
Beautiful colors. Wouldn't they make a wonerful quilt?
