Finally it's Fall

Everyone must think I am really slack, just busy along with more internet problems which have reduced me to webmail on DH's PC the past 10 days, boy am I happy to be back on the Mac!
The wedding I was assisting with went off very well last weekend & I hope to have a couple of pics to post. The weather cooperated, flowers & setting were lovely & the cake was gorgeous. Plenty of good food & beverages & it was a great party. I now consider myself a catering professional, LOL.
This week I managed a bit of sewing, made two more computer bags, but I think they're a bit small for the intended recipients, my Mac is so thin & I didn't take into account that all other laptops are not that way. Maybe I can sell them on eBay because I will have to make two more larger ones this week.
I mailed out two more HOB quilts to the parents of this soldier-one to the mom in CO. & the other to the Dad out of state. These two were sent to me completed, such an added blessing all I have to do is print the paperwork & labels & sew the labels on. I have another two all set to mail & another ready for the labels & certificates.
Today I finally got the BQ mystery quilt pieced & I'll post pics tomorrow after I sew the mitered corners. I'm very relieved because I was afraid it might become a UFO, I had really lost interest in it, but I pushed on because it's a QOV for one of our wounded heroes. Now that it's this far I can easily get it finished, I plan to quilt it next weekend.
I also began to sew the strips for a baby quilt from Bonnie's Strip Twist pattern, I'm using the " scraps" left from the applique animal quilt [which will also be finished next weekend]
I have big plans for Gale's LA machine while she is off hunting antelope!
Finally for today here are a couple of local pic. one of the flowers on the deck & the aspens below as they were beginning to turn from green earlier this week. The color today was much more pronounced.The other of DH & Button about to take off on the quad!
