15 Sep 2005 Fall is in the Air…
 |  Category: Uncategorized  | Comments off

Don’t get me wrong, it’s been warm here. 90 degrees + yesterday and 80 today, but there’s something in the breeze. This sweet smelling coolness. A few dry leaves are starting to flurry down onto the ground. Some of the leaves are changing color and some of the wild grasses are turning gold.

I can’t wait to make soups and stews. Good chili and corn muffins. My awesome potato soup (that our diets really only allow once a year). I adore fall. I love being curled up, warm, at home as it rains and blows outside. I get darn near romantic about it. :O) Welcome Fall! I know you’re on your way.

In knitting news, work continues on my second “peace” blanket (what I’ve dubbed them in my attempt to spread a little peace and kindness). They’re knitting up fast and I should be able to move on to new projects soon. I can’t wait to mail them along to someone who needs them. Emily gets so much comfort and warmth and fun out of her “beaky” that I can’t help but feel good about passing something like that.

I haven’t scrapbooked in two months. It’s not that I don’t want to, it’s just that I’m not.

However, I have more than enough sewing projects to make up for that. On the list

  1. Autumn Purse
  2. Christmas Purse
  3. 2 sets of doll clothes (about 20 pieces, I think)
  4. Pink fairy princess nightie
  5. Yellow nightie
  6. Curtains for Emily’s room
  7. Halloween costume
  8. Two quilts (oy!)
  9. Oh and three or four baby items for the “someday” pile.

    Tonight, after I get some more housework done, I’m going to sit down and try to knock out some baby clothes. I’ll then move onto the autumn purse (I need a purse. I’m tired of my blue knitted one for now), I think. There’s just so much to do and I keep adding to my pile. I’ll post pictures of some finished items in the next couple of days.
