Here's My Story...

After such a hot, humid and fast Summer....I'm looking forward to cooling down, drying off and slowing the pace while we ease on into Autumn!

I'll share a couple of highlights from August... First was a trip out to Hershey, PA! Nope. Not for chocolate, but to visit the Antique Auto Museum. We've been talking about checking it out for a few years now....and since I had some time off from the job...we finally made the drive out. Here's a short video of a small portion of the museum...

Then, of course, there were a few more blocks stitched together on the Fig Tree Mystery Autumn Sampler...

Followed by a little break from sewing...to make some time for this little one...

Sorry about the blurry pic, but our indoor lighting is not too good in the living room. You can bet there will be more photos in future posts...but for now a super quick video of the little guy in action...

His name is "Berwyn" and he's about 5 months old now. After talking about adopting a kitten (and not having any luck with shelters in the area) for about a year now... we "rescued" this little one from a litter that was found in our friend's back yard! :-) They managed to catch him and a few of his siblings...and have since been able to find homes for all of them! :-) Berwyn is definitely one cool cat! Now I wonder why we didn't adopt sooner? lol!

So there you have it! That's my story...and I'm stickin' to it!



  1. Oh Sharon...he is a cutie!!! And, Stitch will be 5 mos tomorrow...so we can raise them together! woohoo!!! It is a lot of fun, for sure, don't you think? Lovely August blocks, by the way! xo

  2. Those sampler blocks are very fresh and pretty, but little Berwyn steals the show!

  3. Welcome Berwyn! He's a cutie and looks to be an entertainer too.

  4. I grew up in Hershey ! Great town.
    Loving Berwyn’s white boots !

  5. Hi Sharon,
    Always love your videos!! Berwyn is just DARLING and I'm sure you are both being entertained constantly by his antics!! Wish we could all plug in to his energy!! Your quilt blocks are so pretty, too!! Thanks so much for sharing your visit to Hershey! I used to love to go there when I lived in PA!! Only a place named HERSHEY could ACTUALLY SMELL LIKE CHOCOLATE!!
