I have been just loving this cool fall weather! Yesterday morning there was even some frost on the fields. I think that fall may just may be my favorite season, cooler weather is so invigorating... I want to start new projects and accomplish so much!
My outdoor project was taking down the picket fence around the front of the house (or rather having someone else take it down) :) I decided that it just detracted from the front of the house, and the roses on it were SO much work...and most years not really worth it, they were only pretty for a couple of weeks, other than that...just spray, fertilize, water, much, weed, deadhead, just too much... That said, I did move 3 of the prettiest ones to new locations, we'll see if they live.
Here is the project in progress...so hard, the posts were about 5 ft deep in cement!
Here is what it looks like now .... I am very happy with it. I think people will notice the old house now. Obviously, I have major seeding to do...
The mill stone on the right is original to the house, with IM for Isaac Mendenhall carved into it. The other one on the left I got at Curry's Antiques fall open house.
Also at Curry's, I bought this cute pumpkin pattern by Mad Hen Primitives, and indulged myself in Curry's new line of primitive hand-dyed wools to hook with. The colors are not as bright as the photo.
I am on the final stretch with Margaret Leadbitter. Just a couple more minarets on the top and one large flower motif on the bottom. Such a beautiful sampler!!
I hope everyone is enjoying the first week of fall!! I sure am!!!!!!
