Laid back Labor day Weekend

This morning, while it was still quiet, I was catching up with the blogs. I noticed Libby, one of my favorites, showed some adorable, very simple, small pieces she was working on. As she noted in her blog, when you cut pieces for one of these it's nearly impossible not to cut more than you need and wind up with enough for at least one more-possibly two more. Here are the two I put together the other day and they just need binding. I have another not quite put together yet so there will be three. I just wanted something fast and something to do a little bit of handwork on. Simple and fast and I needed to have some small pieces for gifts and this will get me pretty much done in that department. I can move on to finishing other things after the Labor Day hubbub.
We are having a nice weekend just enjoying each others company. The weather is delightful and my BIL Bob has gone into the city for a trip to Ellis Island with friends and then on to a great Italian restaurant. James and Dani are off to Target and other errands. I'm just checking in to say Hi! while I have a moment. Hope your weekend is as much fun.
I'll be back with come book talk soon. I found a bunch of great books on the horizon and that is exciting since, in my opinion, the book world is a little bleak lately. Fall looks to be a bit better.
Talk to you soon

That may be my favorite color scheme.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Hi! Guess what? It is raining here, again. Argh! I was gonna start planting the winter garden. Guess the farm will have to wait.

Hope you are having a good one and enjoying the political sideshow!!

I saw that fabric at the shop the other day and thought of you. I almost bought some I like it so much, but I was there for another purpose. I'm trying to be good. Love those little quilts!

You keep on relaxing and enjoying! Happy September!

Those are sweet lil pieces. I can see them under a vase of flowers, or on the dining table under a peach pie.

Such cute little quilts. I am ready for fall after the dry and hot August. We truly need some rain in our neighborhood.
