From a coffee shop in Block Island...

I have never been a coffee fan... But this slogan looks interesting! :)

Bulls bridge

This is a 19th century bridge in Kent, Connecticut. 

It connects two states: Connecticut and New York.

It is over Housatonic River.

It has little openings to get a view of the river

An inside view of the bridge...

We went down a trail to wet our feet in the river :)

In the below photo,notice how calm the water is before it hits those rocks... It almost looks still...

Fall colours

The oranges... 
The reds.. 
The yellows... 
And all shades in-between...

I love them in flowers... more so on the leaves...
the fall is here... Welcome Autumn!

October 8th

Phew! The parcel reached them on their day. It was the one to witness their smiles while they unpacked it. Two little pouches for my two little sisters!

Wish you a very Happy Birthday my darling sisters! 
All the while I made these, I was imagining their faces when they would open the package to see these pouches... It is indeed a pleasure to make our loved ones happy! :)

All sewed with love and care...

I cut all the pieces using my Sizzix bigshot machine. The pouch body is fleece and the flowers in felt. The star button to add beauty to the flower.

Stitched a couple of button holes and passed the grosgrain ribbon through it, then tied it into a bow.

Simple, yet beautiful... Just like my sisters! :)

What started out as a cell phone pouch... ended as a pouch to be used for saving trinkets! But what's important is it reached them on their birthday... Thank you USPS!

Ribbon purse

With a golden ribbon and some green cotton fabric, I made a quick purse.

Sewed the ribbon to the fabric using an embroidery stitch. Used a batting in-between. Added velcro for closure

Cute ain't it?

Quilt Rack

Antique or no-antique... I am proud of my quilt rack...

Bought it on Craigslist...

Cherry wood... I love the spiral legs...

and curvy feet...

more pictures...

As of now, I am hanging my comforter on it. Time to make a new quilt for this quilt rack!
What do you think, is it an antique piece? :)
