258,266,583 leaves...

I have been raking leaves! The faster I go, the behind-er I get....lots of leaves still yet to come. I wanted to show you one of the beautiful trees in our neighborhood. Isn't this pretty? Not our home, but the neighbors did not mind if we shared their beautiful tree. Not much going on, on the quilting front. We had a lovely visit with our son and watched the UT/A & M game. We were thereat the game and had a great time. I actually lost a little weight over Thanksgiving...there are some blessings with not having to cook! Hope everyone is well and I hope I can get to some quilting fun soon!!


I have found the most beautiful new block of the month through http://www.estheraliu.blogspot.com/. She is doing a Red Delicious block of the month. This is definitely one I will be doing the coming year. Want to join me? Do you have a lot of red fabrics just begging to be in a quilt? This BOM may be the one for you!! Did I mention? It is FREE!!!!

258,266,583...and then some, right?! ;-) Just take care of that back...which I know you are. The Mom in me just has to remind you of the obvious!

Glad you got to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with your son! How fun! Just think...soon you'll be sharing him with another family for holidays and such.

Enjoy your weekend outdoors, Julie! Hugs from me!

From one who knows leaf raking is not for sissies.
What a fabulous tree!

We have had our first "real" snowfall of the year today. I guess the leaf racking is over for my area anyway! I will have to check out that red BOM - interesting!

Are you sure? I was thinking that most trees drop 258,267,553 on any given Thankgiving. Maybe count again?

Looking forward to your BOM. I am going to live vicariously through you. Just like everything else...
