It is a GHASTLIE comfort... this autumn!



Well it is that Ghastlie season again! ....I dug out some seasonal
fabric and cut out 2-Ghastlies Tammy Bags....
This one was appropriate as it has the "ladies" knitting in yarns...
and it deep enough to hold a couple balls of yarn..
This lovely pink is Suri Merino by Blue Sky Alpaca...
it is just like cashmere! 

I sew but I also crochet too! wink! 

The other I may get done by Monday,
just needs to be sewed up!  
This one is taking a trip across the country to surprise
someone ....

I can hardly believe another week slipped by ....
I have tried with all my might to keep busy, 
but sometimes I just wanted to escape....


So I took a "ride by" in my mini
on our country roads....I was pleased there was no one sharing the ride or roads
with me, as I was just stopping whenever I saw that SHOT
that would be perfect to share...


Take this church, there was something so comforting about 
this day...The leaves are just starting to change and the shadows
on the side of this HOLY place is so welcoming....

There is so much beauty in our surroundings!
I was glad I took the time to escape and capture it all. 





And this maple in all of it's ORANGE blaze...
isn't it so fresh looking? 




And I loved this all in lemon yellow, gosh how can we not love this season....?



This one in a field all by itself, certainly stood out in all it's glory...
it looked like it was shaking and asking me ...
" HERE, Take my PIC"-
It looked like it was getting a sunburn :)



And this is our backyard, just this morning, as the sun was peaking
from the horizon, it just lit up our whole property...
See the Maple in the middle of the yard, it stands 14 feet,
so can you imagine how large that Chestnut tree in back is...? 




Mother Nature has been ravishing in all of her colours, 
takes my breath away...


I am so bushed I must sit a spell and thank you for all the lovely gifts
and cards that found themselves to our home..
YOU are all so kind, so sweet and I shall never forget 
the comfort you all brought to us this past week....
Like Fall, there is beauty to shine through all of our hearts...

Hope you all have a Blessed Weekend...

  1. Samm, you are always finding the beauty surrounding you. Those fall foliage pictures look like they are out of a magazine, it must be so beautiful there. I love all the brilliant colors of fall. It is as if nature is giving us their best show before the sterile colors of winter take hold. YOU are also creating some beauty too I see...your Tammy bag is such an adorable one. I love the knitting ladies! It is perfect for a few balls of yarn. xx

  8. Beautiful Fall. Glad you're taking time for you. I was thinking about the Ghastlies yesterday. I remember my very first reaction to it -- I want to cover my walls with it. Loved it. My Ghastlie quilt is packed away somewhere, won't be out this season but it will be next year. Thinking of you this weekend.

  20. Thank you for sharing the beauty of the fall colors through the lens of your camera. The fall colors are outstanding there where you live! What a blessing it must be to be surrounded with such beauty! Oh, the Ghastlies!! What a fun time that was being a part of your fun Blog Hop. You are such a creative lady I love your Tammy Bag from the Ghastlies fabric. Cute! I was lucky enough to have found extra fabric while it was still available. Wishing you a wonderful Fall season.
