Fall Flock

The Flock That Stayed Together!
 We are in the process of doing a kitchen redo
 (allot of the work ourselves) and college touring.
 So that has not left much time to
sew, quilt, knit, cook, exercise or clean.
Well, I stumbled onto this free pattern a few days ago
and my mind has been spinning ever since! 
So 2 nights ago this is what I did:

 We go to my mothers for Thanksgiving and always bring a gift.
You guessed it.
She is getting her own flock!

 Now let me ask you!
Can't you see a Holiday, Winter, Spring and Summer flock?
I just recently made curtains for the new kitchen.
Yes they are going to be a birds too.

 Here is the icing on the cake
(why is it always about food!)
 Micheal's fall items are 70% Off.
 I will be making a smaller version for my mom.
(And yes, Nancy & Joyce you will be getting flocked as well!)

The runner squares were from another project.
 Laid down the leaves from the Dollar Store
(how much did they cost?).
At the time I was learning how to free motion.
Thought it would be perfect for me to play with.
I really liked how it came out.

 It has a classy look about it.
 Even with my beginner free motion stitches!


And last, but not least.

Apple Dip!
Our oldest son will be home this weekend from college.
For the past 3 years in the fall I send him back to school with Apple Dip and a bag of apples. His friends and roommates have put in a request for it again.
And this I can do while under construction!

2-8 oz. Cream Cheese-Room Temp. 
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1-1/2 Cup of Light Brown Sugar
Mix good to dissolve sugar
That Easy!!!!

Stay Tuned In--There Will Be More Flock Sightings In The Future.
If you have any Flocking ideas, please send them my way.
