Change of seasons

Well, summer is definitely gone and fall was over in a blink.  Central Oregon is now getting cold!  Yesterday I went hiking with a friend along the Deschutes River (sadly no more kayaking!) and my new header photo was from our hike.

I'm busy trying to make headway on the sprigs and stars quilt.

 I have to admit that they are a lot of fun.  I'm experimenting with color choices.  I started off being completely random.  Now I'm trying to do some organized chaos!!

I've also been working on finishing up this donation quilt for the children.  This has been fun and I really just want to get something DONE.  Know what I mean?

You know how much I love sunsets!  This was from Saturday evening.

Just breathtaking!


  1. Yes, getting things done! I love the river/sky photo in your header. What beautiful country.

  2. your sprigs blocks look great, I like the matching leaves.
    Your X blocks are so lively and fun and will be well loved by a lucky child.
    Gorgeous sky! wow!!!

  3. Beautiful pictures. Lovely appliqué.

  4. Your applique blocks are so pretty on that red background...And I have to say I just love that donation piece--what a fun pattern and such great scrappiness...
