The good thing about leaves, is that unlike flowers, you can pick them up from people’s yards and take them home! The leaves are starting to turn in earnest. I’ll have to take the camera out with me next time. Oscar and I just got back from the library. He was getting fussy in his stroller as he always does so I took him out and set him free in the children’s section. I just can’t get used to this walking thing! It was amazing. He took off. So many new things to investigate. He was charging around like a little boy in his overalls, pulling books off the shelves and squealing in delight. What happened to my tiny baby? Well, he was never tiny, but still.
Why are all the books I want out of print? I’ve had two books out from the library for ages that I especially want, Twentieth Century Quilts 1900-1950 and American Picturebooks from Noah’s Ark to The Beast Within. Both have so many amazing pictures and are such a source of inspiration. Here are some of my favorites from the Picturebook book…
And the quilting book – there are so many gorgeous quilts in there. I want to have another lifetime so I can make them all. This one is my favorite though. It is pictured on the back cover. “Friendship’s Park. 1928-1932.” I’d love to make an applique style quilt like this of the houses in my neighborhood.
ok, now I have to go unload from the stroller all the books I checked out today!
