Happy Harvest To All

This is a fun time for all to visit the pumpkin patch and recall childhood wonderment. Have a pleasant Autumn Season, embrace your families and friends , gather together, Pumpkin pie time. Put on the kettle, pour the tea, brew the coffee, for you and me. Brook

Pumpkins and Pumpkins

This is my Great- Grand Daughter, Hayli and she has quite a task, which pumpkin to take home.

Autumn Roses

I cut three very tight rose buds right before our first night frost. Surprised, the next afternoon,they were in full bloom. The colors were perfect Autumn shades.

Autumn Floral

This is one of my favorite quilts, a whole cloth style, love the floral design and colors, so fortyish.I use this quilt to cuddle on the sofa with a good book. I lean toward whole cloth quilts, as I dislike cutting the designs. My second to like is when you applique on a quilt.

Autumn Flannel

A very simple quilt, wall or table, whole cloth style, I fell in love with the print. It has all the Autumn features, I appreciate. I like the feel of the fabric after it has been quilted and washed, so soft.

Autumn In The Country

In 1980, I took my first painting class, and this was my first oil painting. I believe this is the perfect Season to share my effort into the art field. Wow, 29 years have come and gone, It seems like yesterday. I went to class, met many nice ladies, laughed, had paint everywhere. It was such fun. We are still warm in California, soon Autumn will arrive, waiting, waiting.....

I sign my paintings now , Brook, On this picture it was signed Sunnybrook. We had horses and our ranch was called Sunnybrook Trail Winds, so when the teacher told us to sign our painting, I felt silly at the time signing my name on it, so I put the ranch name. Youth, what was I thinking?? Hope to return to painting on my holiday vacation. If you have ever wanted to paint, join a class , you may be surprised, the wonder is in the eye of the beholder and the enjoyment is memorable. Till next Time, bask in your Autumn Leaves.
