Whoohoo! I am making progress on this piece. It is so funny that the cherries and the detail is more defined in the photos than when I have this up close and personal. It does feel nice and soft. I am designing the pillow I will make out of it in my mind. I am trying to decide whether or not to have fancy fringe or not. I think that I will really feel proud of it when it is done.
There is a really crispness in the night tonight. It is also very clear, which is kind of rare for this area. I sat out in my yard in my Adirondack chair for a little while just looking up at the stars. It is so beautiful. Fall is definitely in the air. I just love it. I am thinking that I may have to bake pumpkin bread soon. I have my pumpkin scented candles set out with my fall themed items. I am looking forward to spending cool evenings cuddled up under a blanket with a little furry girl.
It is hard to believe that it will be time to bring the summer furniture into the garage for the winter soon. Our rainy season will be starting in a couple of months. I have to get some winter vegetables into the ground and prepare the yards for the onslaught of cold and rain. I love the rain. I love the coziness of it. I love to spend a rainy day reading a really good book or stitching away with a recording of Bach and a cup of tea. It is pure heaven.
Saturday is the Autumnal Equinox. I am ready for the change of seasons and the coziness of the days to come. Life is beautiful.
