Lucky Me and a Sneak Peek!

Hello!!! Hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend!!! We made our first trip to the apple orchard and the cider was wonderful!!! It was a real good weekend here!

Unfortunately, the company my daughter's boy friend worked for went out of business last week. Lucky for me, he brought me all of their outdoor upholstery samples!!!! OH the POSSIBILITIES!!! I already cut some pieces for a Fall Swap project!!! I am so excited and go through all the samples every day!

A small sampling of the samples he brought me!

Like I said I'm participating in a fall swap hostessed by Lori of Morning Glories and Moonflowers. I am having fun coming up with fall goodies for my swap box. Here is a sneak peek of one of my projects....
Any guesses????

The great reveal will come after my partner Chrissie of Chrissie Grace receives her package. (It won't be going out until closer to the end of the month). I think she will like it! I've been so anxious to use this pattern and now I have the perfect person to make this for!
What have you all been up to???
Have a great night!!!
Hugs!
Kim

When I was a HeadStart teacher, I love-love-loved it when the local paint/wallpaper store got new sample books and donated their old ones to us. I would have loved that when I was so into scrapbooking!
I truely know how you feel. These days, I would prefer fabric myself but then it was a great treasure for art projects for months( May baskets were our specialties!).
Have fun, my friend!
