I'm Back!

yes i have been MIA…doing some work but now fall has arrived outdoor activities no longer have their same appeal…coffee on the deck is not attractive at all…my deck was covered with frost at 6:30 am…sure not sitting out there with my coffee…sure makes my sewing room more attractive at such an early hour…but not all thoughts of summer have disappeared i am working on a quilt for summer outings…
 working at using up some of my scraps…i have been cutting my scraps into 5" squares and 2 1/2 " strips…so i dug out some 5" squares and sewed them together randomly...
 hey i am going to use it for picnics right so i may as well start out with ants…at least i invited them
 a bit of fusible adhesive and some hem stitch with invisible thread  and these ants will be joining my family and i for good food and lots of laughter
come on little ant lets go outdoors and eat drink and make merry
