Quilt design with a Minimalist Vibe, Fall Light....

Coffee station, I found a local grocer that carries Pike Place!

Formal dining room, cool chandelier.

Front lawn, morning light.
My Omnigrid cutting/ironing mat came today!

Happy weekend from the 'shire'! 

If you don't already know, I'm in New Hampshire helping with my daughter's family on the arrival of #3 grand child, which is soon to come. Home is Folsom, CA so we are a long way from home.

 The weather here has turned mild and sunny, delightful.
The little princesses are up to their usual business of play, fun, running around etc.

The cutting/ironing mat that I ordered from Nancy's Notions came today and I'm looking forward to making faster progress on my log cabin blocks. These blocks are for a new project using more neutrals and smaller amounts of saturated color for a minimalist vibe.

Speaking of color, Jeni Baker of In Color Order has a series of posts on The Art of Choosing Color.
She's able to clear up color questions and issues quick and succinctly. 

I hope all of you are having fun with your projects and I'll stop in to see what you're up to. Thanks for sharing!

Have a great day. Remember to take time and enjoy the fall air; invigorating.

It's great that you have made yourself at home, so far from home. I look forward to seeing more of this project.

I am glad you got your cutting/ironing board. Mine is in daily use although I have larger boards for cutting and ironing. These smaller ones are perfect for taking to workshops or daughters' houses!
I'm looking forward to seeing your 'neutral' quilt - I am sure you will splash in a lot of colour somehow!!!

That's just what I need (cutting/ironing mat) and it looks like you are already putting yours to good use. Enjoy your pleasant weather - I like to be outdoors now, before it all gets too cold and miserable.

Thanks Pamela. I need to keep creativity rolling then I don't get too home sick.

Thank you, Queenie. You're right, I won't be able to resist.
