A sampling of treasure
Not being a traditionalist I decided I didn't like samplers and would never do another. Never say never for there are many ways to make samplers and the quilt group chose several. But those treasures must wait for another Tuesday!

Shhh! They're sleeping!
I have help with the fall decorating and that should be finished up this week. Looks like a frost night is coming and we'll do one cover over and then it'll be time to pull everything. The last summer project is winding down just in time for yard prep for winter.
Today is the last full day for my wee visitors and we plan to make lots of art!

This, that, and the other thing
An Artist Date
I got them to choir practice in time and I have a feeling Jingle Bells is going to lose its charm, at least for me, before the big concert day arrives! :(

Tuesday Treasures- First Class
While I was busy sewing up all my rail fences I was telling The Rooster's sister all about my new found happiness. She also sewed and I was horrified to hear she was going to make quilts after she had explored garment sewing to her satisfaction. Oh, no. She had to start asap because there wasn't going to be enough time for us to do all the quilts we would be planning. So we enrolled in an Irish Chain class and I don't think she got much garment sewing done after that! :^)
The treasure nugget I carried away from this hunt was that monochromatic scraps work wonderfully in quilts especially with a bit of an accent colour.

Life on the rails
But I was hooked.
I also learned as I was searching for photos and old treasures that this first quilt block has actually influenced a lot of my quilting but that is for another Tuesday. Who knew it would turn out to be such a treasure!
This post is linked up to A Quarter Inch From The Edge and Throwback Thursday!

Labouring on the long weekend
It has been raining. Because we do have that big barn to work in we finished in two days. Weather permitting we can get back to working on the outside. Looks like another busy week as the work schedule picks up and fall appoaches.
