Fall Fun - Already?!?

Last weekend went by far too fast!  Between an unexpected houseguest (who had a bat in her own house!), not one but TWO random afternoons with friends, and a cook-out that turned into 9 hours of food, fun, bags and Wii games, I didn't get anything done.  Not one thing.  There goes summer!!  

My goal is to have my bedroom wall completed before college football commences Saturday morning, the true start of fall, yes?  I've arranged everything on the wall, mostly with 3M stickies, just in case I change my mind.  (Those things rank of there as some of the greatest inventions of all time!)  

The canvases will be covered in fabric shortly, and the frames would all have photos in them by now if Oprah hadn't decided she was cool enough to completely shut down traffic on Michigan Avenue during rush hour tonight (and I hadn't sent my prints to the wrong Walgreen's to begin with)!!  

I've also got my papers picked out to rev up the IKEA frames a bit - stay tuned!  

Wall In Progress

In other fall preparations, I got a cute set of pre-cut blocks from Fat Quarter Shop of the Spooktacular by Sanae for Moda fabrics for Halloween.  I'm going to make a runner/tablecloth for my dining room table.  It's probably my next project (once the bedroom is complete) because I'm really excited about it and October will be here before we know it!  I'm open to pattern ideas, although I'm considering another disappearing 9-patch!!  Someone remind me to order more fabric for the binding and back!!
