The setting sun was so beautiful that I decided to photograph this quilt top outside. My fence seemed to be a perfect spot. I have had the blocks for this quilt since 2005! It's for my best friend, Beth. Thank goodness she doesn't redecorate her house that often. I haven't made a pieced quilt in years so it was fun to work on this for a change although it was also difficult as I'm not very good a "scrappy" quilts. I think it turned out okay and I know Beth will like it. That's all that matters. It's heading to the long arm quilter on Tuesday.
After I photographed my quilt, I got sidetracked in the yard by my little apple tree. Again, I loved the look of the setting sun against the red of the apples and green of the leaves. This is my most favorite time of year.
As I entered my house through the "friend" door, I stopped to turn on my willow lantern. I love how this lantern looks here and the shadows it creates on the wall. I think it is a warm, cozy welcome to all my friends.
Light, love and hugs to you,
Michelle, the Bunnies and Sabrina too
