It is hard to believe that October is half over!
The leaves around here are just starting to turn but we saw some beautiful trees during our recent trip to Minnesota. We even stopped at a place selling pumpkins so Sadie could take a little walk.
Yesterday I started working on my newest Island Batik project that I will share for the Pumpkin Fest with the other Island Batik Ambassadors this month. I used the same batiks that I used in my Folk Art Quilted Traditions post.
I am also using my AccuQuilt Electric Die cutter and a few dies.
I think the first AccuQuilt die I ever bought was the Fall Medley die. This die also cuts an oak leaf and acorn.
It is hard to believe that it was 5 years ago when I made my first table topper tutorial with that die!
I also did a table topper with just the pumpkins!
We stopped at lots of parks....actually more parks than quilt stores! Of course, we had to take pictures of little Sadie with the fall leaves.
Sadie is a wonderful traveler, we had her bed in the back and she would sleep most of the time.
Our trip to Minnesota was to spend time with Builder Bob's mom on her 96th birthday, doesn't she look beautiful! There was a big family reunion on her 90th birthday and she said she didn't want another big party until her.....100th! I like the way she thinks.
Her little dog Mandy passed away a couple of years ago and she really misses her. We hadn't told her about Sadie and she was really surprised to see her. Sadie was a sweetheart and spent a lot of time sitting in the rocking chair with her.
Her place is in a Senior Center and is very nice, she has her own private apartment.
Saying goodbye was hard, I think little Sadie got more hugs than either of us.
I finished my Pumpkin Fest project, you'll love this table runner!
