Middle Daughter is on Fall break from school.
Today was one of those lazy days at Shady Acres.
It rained all day.
So she worked on her nine-patch,


Harvest nine patch


She started this little wall-hanging quilt some time ago.  She enjoys drawing, and always has some sort of craft project going.  She has named it
“PATCHES OF SPRING”
and drew all of the blocks before she began to carefully embroider each one.  This is the patch that she is on now:

And I am amazed at how meticulously everything is done.  The pictures do not begin to do justice to this beautiful  piece of art. 


After working for a while on the patchwork and doing some ironing and helping to clean up the kitchen, she decided that she wanted to do some harvest decorating for me.  I have a hodge-podge of harvest decorations.  I collect pilgrims and I love the silk fall foilage.  So she decided to give our fireplace a new look.  Usually we have a lighthouse picture with lots of ocean accessories on the mantle with our humpback clock.  She took everything off the mantle except for the clock, and this was the result.

We have a little side window that looks out towards our driveway.  I have an upholstered blanket chest under the window and it is a cozy nook for curling up with a blanket and a book.  This is the window above the reading place.

And beside the blanket chest (you can see it there in the background) is this chair — just waiting for someone to come and sit by the fire for hot chocolate and a visit.

Wait a minute—  maybe you had better wait until Certain Man is ready for his sermon on Sunday.  He uses this room to study, here by his book case and with a good reading light.  He has been suffering from a serious cold this week, and we are hopeful that his voice will be ready when he is!!!

Tonight he said that he thinks he will start putting price tags on things in this family room and start selling things.  Was that nice?  I don’t think so, Mr. Yutzy.  (Most of them only have sentimental value, anyhow.)
