Sunny Day...

It seems its been cloudy and raining for a week, but today we finally had a sunny day. It's a good thing I got to sew most of the Labor Day weekend, because it's been hard to find time this week. I did manage to piece the Sunny Days top together on Monday, after chores and between laundry loads. And that was it til today. Today I got the borders put together and all but the last top border on the quilt. The last border needs 12 circles appliqued on it and I had to wait till the rest was done so that I knew what size to cut the border. I managed to applique four of them today and hopefully I'll get a few more done tonight. I won't be able to finish the top until Sunday anyway -- have the second baby shower to go to Saturday and tomorrow Steph and AJ are coming down for a visit. We haven't seen them for over a month and I just know that little boy has grown leaps and bounds. Anyway -- not taking a picture of the quilt til the top is at least finished, so you'all will just have to wait!

I did put out my fall quilts and a few decorations today, so I'll share one with you here:

Gratitudes:
1. Bill was able to get back outside and work today -- he doesn't do well cooped up in the house!
2. Fall is in the air.
3. Blogger friends.
