Thanks Pauline, I really love them!
I’ve been busy this week, but I don’t have much to show or it. I’m working on a secret project during my lunch hour, and I spent some time working on a baby blanket. A co-worker and her friend bought kits of fleece to make no-sew baby blankets that are just fringed and tied. But they decided they wanted something different, so I was called in. I said “Sure, I can make something for you”. How stupid was I? I’ve never worked with that type of fabric, and it was a nightmare. This stuff stretches and moves and stretches some more. Per their request, I appliqued the baby’s name on the first blanket, and then was told that I was given the wrong spelling. One of the pieces had been pinned to two layers of batting when I received it. I finally got one sewed together, and tied with yarn, and I declined to attempt the second one. I’m not usually a quitter, but this little experiment was impossible.
Tonight, I cut out one quilt, and started cutting another. I’m going to a retreat next week, and I want to get a lot of sewing done. I’ve never cut in advance before, so this will be something new.
Fall really is here, and we put our kayaks in storage yesterday. A sad day indeed. One of the nice things about fall, is that I get to see some beautiful sunrises on my way to work each morning.
Now if I could just find a decent place to take a picture! The light changes so quickly.
Instead of taking a daytrip yesterday, we stayed close to home and ran some errands. I finally got to visit our brand new library, we put the kayaks in storage, and we stocked up on apples, squash, and pumpkins.
Then we took a very short hike to a nearby waterfall, experiencing more of my favorite things of fall – walking through crunchy leaves. And fall has a special smell, with the leaves, wood smoke from nearby cabins, the apples. . . It won’t be long until the smells of holiday treats will be in the air, too! Less than two months until Christmas…..
Be kind to Everyone! Santa is making his list..Sunny
