My Sister in law Aida was killed in a car accident in October 1991. I had never met her in person,we had only spoken on the phone cause we still lived in Germany at this time. Coming to the states for her funeral was not easy. It was also meeting my husbands family for the first time and our 10th wedding Anniversary the same month . I did put all this in a place far away from where I was until now, when I decided it was time to finish it. I`m happy to have it on my wall and remember Aida every time I look at it.

It was time to clean the house a little today since nothing was done last weekend.This morning my DH went fishing and I cleaned the stairs and got my new rug out that I just could not leave in the store yesterday.The size is perfect and the colors go well with my dark red stair threads. Now I know that there was a couple of runners in the same rug and I`m pretty sure if it is still in the store on Wednesday it also will go home with me.

This is my first posting for September. I was able to finish this wonderful little Autumn block for Margreet in the Netherlands. She has sent a piece of fancy yarn and a little flower button that everyone should incorporate into the block they are working on.We also should only use colors in the same nuances as her fabrics in the block. I used the yarn on the stem of my grass on the left corner and you can see the little golden flower in the middle of the block.Hope Margreet will enjoy the Fall tree in silk ribbon ,I added a spider, cat and mouse to complete my work on this little block.Now they will be mailed of to Ritva in Finland.
