I know most people try to eek out the last few weeks of summer, not I. I plunge head first, full force into fall about the 2nd week in August. I creep down to the basement where waiting for me are my old friends the “Fall Boxes.” They are full of all the delicious colors of Autumn…rusts, burnt sienas, golds, chocolates, caramels YUMMMM. They hold my grungy pumpkin men, scary witches, black cats, and harvest delights. I love decorating for fall almost as much as Christmas, and as I start doing Christmas right after Halloween I MUST start early for fall so I can enjoy it! =)
I am finding a peculiar thing as I poke around placing my treasures. We moved from a huge house to a much smaller town house this past spring. There were many more rooms at our old abode, and I always managed to fill each of them up with fall stuff. I don’t know what is going on, as I am sure there is some sort of physic’s law that says smaller places hold less things….but I really feel like I don’t have enough decorations!! Oh well I guess I will have to go shopping…darn! heheh
This quilt I finished last year, and the machine quilter got it back to me months ago. I finally put the binding on it last month. If you are gathering that I hate doing the binding ….you would be correct!
