Busy, busy!

I can't believe were halfway through October already. I am not prepared yet for Halloween - mentally, that is. But I am very proud of myself - I actually finished reading a novel yesterday. It was on my "goal" list for the summer. (Sounds silly, I know!) And although it's technically not summer, I still finished it and loved it. How I've missed books! Since my daughter was born, I've been much too busy to spend that kind of time on myself. Now that she's four and doing some more on her own, I've had more time. Anyway - I read "Here On Earth" by Alice Hoffman. It's a bit dark, but the story is set in New England and really makes you feel the fall. I enjoyed it.
Here's what else I've been up to. This is a shape from the illustrious Deb over at Say It With Letters. It was so much fun to make and really only took me a short time. I love how "fall-y" it is. :)

And here's some of the many layouts I've been making - not all of them stellar - but since I just scrap for myself it really doesn't matter, now does it? :)

Also cut up some fabric tonight - don't ya love these colors for a little quilt? I do!

I just love all those fabrics Laurie. And the leaf is a-dorable! I'm going to post it if that's ok. The pink layout of Chloe is too cute - the little 'o' over her head looks like a halo... but we know better. HA! :)
