My birthday and our vacation

The week before Labor Day, Tom and I spent the whole week up at the Roost. We did lots of odds and ends and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

Tuesday was my birthday, and we rode the Virginia Creeper Trail - a 17-mile trek (all downhill!) down an old railroad grade through the woods along a stream and over several railroad trestles. What a blast - we'll definitely be doing it again!(Don't we look spiffy.....)

The weather was gorgeous, and the dew made the grass look like snow...

One of my projects was to cover up the mantel - I've never liked it - the wood just doesn't match the fireplace.
So I sewed a runner with prairie points to cover it....What do you think?
