Surprise ! A little more summer

I really like some of these cartoons !

So it's officially Fall, but it seems that we're getting a second wind, so to say. The temps the last week have been in the high 70's, the Strawberries have still been producing, well and so has everything else. We are finally getting ripe Tomatoes, the Gardner's in our valley were sure this was going to be the year of no Tomatoes. I'm starting to mentally get ready to be done with the garden, all though I'll try to keep lettuce going for as long as I can. Earlier this month we had our Okanagan County Fair, and I had mentioned that our M.V. Spinners & Weavers Guild were doing a modified Sheep to Shawl. We found this to work out real well, the public enjoyed it, the day we did it was the day all the schools brought the kids to the fair. So we had lots of very interested children, they wanted to know all about what we were doing. It was a great success and we will probably do it again. This last Saturday, the Omak Spinners Guild came over to our valley and held there meeting here at Jan's house. We had a great time and of course great food too. I even pulled out my new socks I knit, they were knit two at a time from the toe. It's hard to tell in the picture, but their is some silver thread going through with the yarn. I also have been doing some spinning on my Lendrum Spinning Wheel, Some Alpaca I purchased from a local breeder. I think I still prefer Wool, I've got two of my spinning wheels going, and I'm spinning wool. I'm also working on a Table Quilt, I just got all the fabric cut out and placed on my design wall, to make sure I know were everything goes, then tonight I will be going to our new Quilt Shop "The Quilting Hive" to do some group sewing, we will be working on our own projects. Well my Dad has left today to go home for the winter, we're hoping he will be back next summer. Love to all Diana
