Labor Day

The end of summer...but that only means my favorite time of year will soon peek around the corner. I love fall, and can't wait for cool days and even cooler nights. I love crawling under the covers and pulling them up around my chin. Must be some left over childhood comfort thing, but it sure does make me happy. We had a very quiet holiday weekend. Mine has been extended until Thursday as today is the first appointment with the Rheumatologist and then tomorrow is a normal day off. I've made some use of all my free time since new classes at the shop will be scheduled and the Empire Quilt fest is getting closer!
Sunday evening hubby and I attended a lovely wedding- the first born of a very dear life long friend. Sean was extremely handsome as were his brothers and his dad- decked out in their tuxes! The bride was "radiant". I know they say that about all brides, but Jessica truly was. She smiled so much and laughed happily during the ceremony, as did her groom. They were so happy and truly saw no one other than each other. It was so apparent. We all were delighted.
The wedding was outdoors on a clear beautiful night in the gardens of an old mansion in Altamont NY. The Inn is not far from the fairgrounds and that evening the Scottish Games were still going strong. Everyone got a huge chuckle when just as the bride and groom completed their beautifully written vows, a roar from the neighboring crowd erupted and full bagpipes went into play! It was a marvelous moment...unplanned, but totally in sinc with the happenings up the road at the wedding!

On the home front, I got to spend a lazy Monday in the sewing room. We had a quiet day planned and it was wonderful to be so relaxed. I completely finished one sample and made up the top of another. Unfortunately, I didn't have batting for the second, so will have to pop into the shop later and pick some up. I still have tonight and tomorrow to work on things!
I also got to give into guilty pleasure and settled in front of the TV and finished up most of the applique on a fall swap piece (so no photos until it reaches its new owner, just in case!) and watched a marathon of Design Star on HGTV. I think I could get used to being a "slug"!
Off to see what I can accomplish this morning before heading off to the doctor's office. Here is a peek at the Monday projects. Enjoy!

Disa Design's Snowman Table Runner- lots of fun to do!

I'm with you, sister. I LOVE fall, love cuddling in bed under a nice quilt (pulled to my chin), and love endearing weddings like you describe. What a happy post! I have that Atkinson pattern, too. Guess I'll have to pull it out and make one. It's great!
