Wake up to a giveaway, Leafs me Happy begins MONDAY!


What a lovely way to celebrate FALL...
Leafs me Happy Blog hop..
Many are busy stitching up FALL blocks
is ready for us all on Monday Oct 1st..


As expected I too have been busy behind
the scenes, rounding up our sponsors, 
creating blocks, new graphics, new buttons..
OHHHH and I have had some company....



This Morning I noted Sumantra sitting outside on the patio, just staring at this weed...
She has loved the freedom of being in and  out all summer and I know
she is thinking  "its FALL" what now? 

And I am thinking A GIVEAWAY would be nice...
that's what FALL is dishing up today..

Debby Kratovil and her partner Jean Ann Wright
have put together another calendar of blocks and a cd companion
too...SEW today, we will have 2 to giveaway! 


Debby will be playing along in our Fall blog hop too, sew what
a nice way to to start our new season. 
Drop her a line let her know why you would like to win this! 

Thanks Debby, this is a lovely calendar....

Winners will be announced on Monday!

I have some Paper Piecing to tackle, all my window
treatments are in the wash, I have a bit of ironing to do...
some baking of squares and cookies for Thanksgiving...


I just hung them out to dry, by the time I finish my coffee,
it will be time to bring them in and hang them back in my sewing studio...
Time 23 minutes...from loading them into the wash on delicate cycle
to hanging them out on the line...
and it is only 8:11 am...
Check out how I do it all...on my TIMER button on the side...
HOW I MAKE TIME....


Sew I have to run and cheer....I love FALL!

What do you do to get ready for FALL?


Cherry and I will see you all on OCTOBER 1st!

  1. Calendars are always nice. It reminds us how fast time is going and how much we would like to accomplish each day. I hope this calendar day I get my RTQA top put togeather, go for a walk, get to the bank and make four pies for the fall supper and hopefully get to the flower garden.

    Good morning Missie Samm, it is nice to see that you are getting a zillion things done so early, I am also very zippy in the morning. I can get all of those things done, moving around the house and the kittyboys race around excited and "helping", then later when I am ready to do things with crinkly papers, and sharp pins, they are down for their first nap haha
    I LOVE this calendar. I have never seen anything like this but I bet there is a lesson a day, and that would be just like quilting boot camp! That would be great... as long as there are no pushups involved. :-D The Block a Day looks like serious business. I want to grab it right off the screen!

    Have a super wonderful day today, Samm.
    I have a list a mile long for this day, so I am here in Northern Virginia gonna git'er done :-D
    Sumatra is button cute, she looks so sweet and gentle like my Pierro -- Miles on the other hand is out of control.

    Happy Friday

    Hello Madame, Debby, thank you for this giveaway, I am intrigued, love to make a block a day! You do get a lot done in a day, every day, nice to see your formula. Love your sheers, they are beautiful love the scalloped edges. Your Sumantra looks like royalty, like a ruffle around her collar, she is beautiful.
    Thank you for all you do for us quilters.

  6. I would love this giveaway, even with modern technology you need a calendar especially with quilt designs.
    Lots to do and if I get half of my to do list done, I will be on a roll.

  7. The block-a-day calendar is a great way to learn new block designs ... it would be a nice (and functional!) bit of quiltiness for my desk at work, too.

  10. Love the calendars! Such an inspiration to have on my desk when I cannot be at my sewing machine!

  11. I think I really need a calendar that I enjoy looking at because I am still in shock that it is almost October!! In my mind it is still August! How did that happen? What happened to September??? These days are just roaring past without slowing down at all.
    What a nice photo of the sheers blowing in the breeze. I can just see myself sitting there drinking a cup of coffee and having them tickle across my face every now and then. I'm enjoying the flowers as I sit there and Sumatra is in my lap purring. (Oh. I guess I was dreaming. I'm not a morning person at all. It takes me a while to wake up in the morning!)

  12. This heat is getting to everyone around here. It will be so nice to see some cooler weather. I have plans for a fall quilt and a Christmas quilt but with the way things have been going lately I probably won't get to either

  14. I love seeing curtains and sheets blowing on the line....plus they smell great.

    The quilt calendars are always so much fun and have so many great block ideas.

    Ready to roll on Monday.

  15. I love the calender too. And with a block each day to enjoy. It has been a wonderful fall day here in Sweden so far, with no raining at all. We have had certainly enough of water falling down this week. And October could be a very nice month in Sweden too,

  28. This calendar looks like a lot of fun! As a fan of the 100 Quilt Blocks magazine, I love learning to make new-to-me blocks. Can you imagine what would happen if someone were to make each block of the calendar each day?!! That would be 366 blocks at the end of the year. What a challenge!

  36. This is my first real fall out of my parents house (married last Sept). Last year I just set out some decorations. This year I need to decorate, wash the winter clothes and organise my sewing space.

  37. Don't enter me in the giveaway for this one Samm - I love those calendars and I have a special friend who always gives me one for Christmas. :) But I wanted to tell you (again) how jealous I am of your clothes line...I'll be showing that to my husband (again). blessings, marlene

  39. I just bought this calendar for a friend (gift) and just love these things - think I have one for every year I have been quilting. Fall, just bought some new snuggle sweats for around the house and bright slipper socks - we are getting cold, no more bare feet!

  40. Sumantra you look so lovely today! I love those little calendars and think one would be great in my sewing room to help me focus on just one project a day instead of eight or nine...or ten...different things. Leave it to you to make laundry hanging on a clothesline look beautiful.
