Fantastic Fall

The weather has just been fantastic this past week ! Sunshine and mid seventies temps. Perfect weather to finish out the regular baseball season, too. And the Tigers did finally win their fourth divisional title! They waited until the very last day, but who doesn't need a little drama!

I made the last block for the Marcus Brothers Friends and Companions Designers Mystery. This Friday we will be given the put together how to. These blocks were fun to sew and I love the colors.

My daughter-in-law's mom and nephew came over from Germany to visit. We had them here for dinner and a day in Frankenmuth. She doesn't speak any English and I don't speak German, but we had three good translators. I was gifted with this beautiful table runner. She does beautiful knitting and crochet work.

My hibiscus had more blooms this year than other years. Must have been the rain and cooler temps at just the right time.

My brother, Paul and his wife, Kelly came to Michigan to see their new grandson! This is a family pic taken last Saturday. My mom and dad, brothers and sisters, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law hoping to celebrate the Tigers clinching the American League Central title for the fourth straight year. The Tigers waited until Sunday, but we had a wonderful time together anyway.

In July, Rosemary Youngs came to the sleep at home retreat at The Cottage! We like to work on similar projects or even the same project, at times. Here is Helen, Connie, Rosemary and me with our Market Days tops. Somewhere I have a picture of the smaller size quilt, too. I'll keep looking.

What a treasure that table runner is. Enjoy your mystery on Friday and I hope the Tigers don't have too much drama today. :)

Oh, what a beautiful table runner! Lucky you. I have one doily a German friend made for me one year, and it is treasured. The sampler blocks look good, congratulations on finishing all of them!
