We'll go hopping in a minute but first -
it started last month but is in full swing this month -
Back to School.......
Life falls back into familiar routine.
This is the path down to the trees that the dogs and I use when we take our walk every night.
(The picture of Zoie & Quinn and Jake & Cullen is a few years old but the path remains the same.)
At the end of a hectic day my walk is very peaceful and restorative. And it gives the dogs a chance to use up a little energy.
There are, of course, drawbacks to everything and living in the middle of nowhere certainly has some. Our internet service sucks - as a lot of you know. Quite often things just don't get through.
Our youngest son lives in Kansas City about 4 blocks from Google Fiber, the fink.
But we're just not quite ready to give up our space so we keep on struggling internet wise.
Since we live about 10 miles outside of a town of 9,000 this is what it looks like at night.
There is very little ambient light from Cameron.
Years ago the first time we came up to the house we were building at night the electricity had been shut off. (At that time you had to read your own meter and we hadn't, being city people). We just lay down on the ground on a blanket and stared at the sky.
This is my Castlewood pattern
You can order the pattern by clicking on the name.
If you want a kit, be watching the Craftsy website. They are kitting it. I don't think it's on their website yet but should be soon.
Fall is in full swing here and the garden is waning.
You can keep it alive in your quilt - Cottage Garden. The kit is on special today only.
Now lets hop on and see what our other designers are up to.

Lisa of Primitive Gatherings
