Come on Autumn!!!

Here is my little autumn set up in my office.  It's still hot here but I am hoping that we will get a break from the heat soon.

This little quilt was a kit from the Quilter's Cottage out in Richmond.  I've had it for a few years but was always intimidated by all of the HSTs.  Well, I have gotten better at them and I pulled it out last Sunday afternoon and knocked it out!  It's 13 x 19-just the right size for a table.

Art deco love

 This afternoon DH called me from an estate sale-he found two vintage sewing machines.  One was a Singer 15-91 and the other was a treadle.  I was really interested in the treadle but it was seriously rusty.  This one caught my eye though-look that that lovely art deco style!  The veneer is in terrible shape-they obviously used it as a plant stand and didn't protect the wood-even the back of the desk is messed up.  DH, however, thinks he can fix it up.  The little drawer on the left hand side actually has a pen tray and the original glass inkwell!  How could I not love this?  The stool is original as well and opens up for storage.  The serial number indicates it's from 1949.
This one isn't mine-I just grabbed it off someone's blog but see how  beautiful it could be?

Labor Day

Spent a beautiful Labor Day by the sea. . .it was really restful and there was a good breeze off the water.
The purple flag was out though-which means jellyfish!

DH amused himself by capturing jellyfish.  He caught about 30-you can see eight or so in this picture.  They were really small-fist sized or smaller but they still could sting!


 It's a top!  My goal for my two week vacation was to get this to a top and here it is!
