Random Thursday, Ten-Four

Live A Colorful Life
My sister stopped by for a visit yesterday morning, and we took our coffee out on the deck.  It was a bit cool, so we wrapped ourselves in quilts.  I looked up into the ash tree, which has been raining leaves this past week.  Before they're all gone—and it won't be long—I grabbed my camera for a few shots.

Blue and yellow...a favorite color combination.

And looking left, my neighbor's maple tree was a gorgeous burnt orange. 

This was yesterday.  I should have taken one today for comparison.  About a third of the leaves blew away on the breeze today.

I finished the second scrap mini yesterday.  It's a perfect mug rug size.

Again with the loopy quilting.  This time I wanted to test out a variegated Sulky thread.  It's actually a machine embroidery thread, but I picked it up on sale at Joann last month with this quilt in mind.

Now that I know it seems to work okay, I will go ahead and use it for that quilt.

Here is the back.  I used up most of that vintage-y apple fabric.  Maybe just a strip or two left for the scrap drawers.

Sharing a song with you today, too.  I had three in mind, but so as not to overwhelm, I picked just one.  I've always been a fan of Brent Smith, the lead vocalist.  He seems in fine form, physically and vocally, this year.


  1. Gorgeous trees. We won't have any color like that for another month. Sad...

    Your little quilt is so cute. And that was a great song. Thanks so much for linking up!!

  2. Good stuff! Love the Dubble Bubble mug on the rug:)


I welcome your comments! Thanks for taking time to leave a note!
