Rug in Brown and Red

My Great-Niece Elizabeth saw the other rug that I was knitting and liked it.  So I offered to make her one.  Two months later, I'm almost done.  Her sister will be staying with me at Thanksgiving, so I plan to finish it up and send it back to north Texas then.
Here I am at Bee meeting, showing it off:

We meet once a month, and Show and Tell is usually the best part of our meetings.   Some of us have know each other for 25 years or so.  (Actually, Bonnie and I met 40 years ago.)

So good to have long-lasting friendships!

And here, I'm working on the border. It goes a lot faster than the center. Then to sew it on.

Yellow Flowers

Summer is over.  I guess this is Autumn.  The heat hasn't been turned on yet, but I've only run the AC a few times lately.  There's been blessed rain.

I love yellow flowers.  My bouquet at my first wedding was of yellow roses and they remain my favorite.  I also like sunflowers, coreopsis, and all kinds of multi-petalled   wildflowers.

These pictures were taken in my neighborhood in October.

Then I painted a couple of pictures in my art class.
Love those yellow flowers.
