I wanted a gauzy texture for this ghost and spider web, so I bunched up some cheesecloth on a piece of heat 'n bond (sandwiched between a paper bag so it wouldn't stick to my iron) and the texture turned out just right . . .

fall is just around the corner

Schools started WAY too early around here this year - the middle of August! Noble Orchards has just opened for the fall season - we can get apples right up to the first day of spring.  We were pleasantly surprised last Friday when they were still picking peaches, so we bought an entire lug!

wishing you all the best

Just want to let a co-worker know I'm so happy for her - she's newly engaged and moving out of state to start her new life.
