Awww Monday She inspired me to quilt...

This week's header is a photo of Pottery Barn's window in a lovely piZap frame.
I added my angel Madi.  She was sitting in a paper bag which she loved.
Hosted by Comedy Plus

I think I might have mentioned, once or twice, on a Quilting post how long I have
secretly yearned to quilt.  The yearning started back in the late 1990's when I
met a delightful young co-worker Pam who quilted.  While working at NCSU,
Pam met a very charming Post Doc...they married and moved to Illinois.
Several of her siblings live in Raleigh.  About two weeks before Thanksgiving, I rec'd an email from Pam.  She and her family would be in Raleigh...would I like to met for lunch...I said absolutely.
Pam doesn't do much quilting now.  She is mom to a very busy 15 year old who plans a career as Veterinarian. They live out midst the cornfields with lots of animals, kinda of a hobby farm.

Head hanging in shame...I didn't think about taking photos
until 2 got away from me.
Collages show back and fronts

Speaking of Quilting
I would like to thank HER from DownUnder Daisy, for sending me this adorable

Mid November I started working on a project for us.  I loved the colors in the wall hanging I made for our hairdresser. (pic bottom right of last collage (above) navy and pink)

Sunday before Thanksgiving, I had a freak accident,  a combo of a bad pinch and chunk of skin being cut out of the fleshy part of my right thumb. It bled like a stuck pig. Dad of Angel Madi got a band aid on it eventually.  Whew, happy to say,
 I did not need a transfusion!  LOL
It was pretty much useless for about 7 days. I have a new respect for furries without thumbs. LOL THUMBS are extremely impawtant.  About all I could do w/o making it hurt was type.  No pushing in pins, no writing. It is not hanging yet since, the sleeve I make for the dowel is hand sewn.  Currently it is bench warmer.

Symmetry Saturday: Umstead State Park

I'm pleased to say William B. Umstead State Park is about 5 miles from our front door.
We went out there to see the fall colors...
Most of leaves had 'turned' loose not 'turned' colors

foot bridge before the 'natural trail'.

Bridge and its reflection...I absolutely love this photo.  

 This trail was the most colorful...more sun there

Canoes in 'dry dock' til Spring

Same trail from the other side of the lake.

Ironically, on the way home we came in the back of our neighborhood.
We saw this gorgeous tree with the sun peeping thru the leaves of gold

Feline and Nature Friday: Sunrise and Leaves

We thank Comedy Plus for hosting

Dearest Aunty HiC,
I’m sad to see the college football regular season come to an end.
It’s the one time of the year Mom will sit down longer than 10 minutes, and I take full advantage of her lap. 😻

Thank goodness for playoffs and bowl games. 😹

❤️ Kat Your Feline Nephew

Oh dear sweet nephew!! Maybe since you are still technically on vacation in the Wheelie House Mom will continue to sit more than roam!!
What absolutely precious photos of you lovingly looking into your mom's eyes. Your white feets remind me of Angel Madi's.
Is she wearing a 'Bama had?  We were sorry to see the Tide had a bad game too.

We (NCSU) fans are glad to see it over. 

YIKES what a horrible season we had.
Lovingly Aunty HiC

Kat wrote back to tell me Mom's hat says Life is Good.
And it surely is!!

 Today's sunrise is courtesy of my gal pal Janice...she lives East of us in Wake County
All our fall eaves have turned loose
Now the sunrises and sunsets are tickling our Mind's Eye.

Sea of Leaves from our back yard
Thankfully all of this is natural area so no raking required.
