We have heard from 'higher authorities' that we will be experiencing freezing temperatures tonight, perhaps down to 27 degrees. So be it. It is time. My annuals have had their 'day in the sun'. I'll be picking the last of the red tomatoes and the green too. We've had a long fall, and that is a good thing.

I finished this small quilt and have it hanging on my kitchen wall. The fabric is by Brigitte Heitland for ZEN CHIC for Moda, I do really like it. The edging fabric is a Batik, not by Moda... and the back (not shown), a black background with such a fun print of lime, red, orange, blue, birds resting on lime branches. I've found that with every new sewing item I make, I make new mistakes. I should have added another edging around the quilt (the awesome black background print), and then added the orange Batik. I should have made the edging wider, too. Next time it will be 'perfect'. (grin).
The front porch was looking so summery-fall-ish, but alas, that too will end. As George Harrison famously sang, "All Things Must Pass".
I'll be bringing the Geraniums in and they'll spend the next few months of their life resting by a south window. They are now 2 years old. During those dreary cold winter months, there is nothing as wonderful as some bright flowers to feast one's eyes on.
The Monarchs flitted through the area a few weeks ago on their way to Mexico. I asked if I could go along, but they said I was too heavy to carry. An especially kind one said he'd send a postcard.
And a discovery... sometimes I wonder how I make it through the day... realized that I could use a regular pan on the stove to make my delish applesauce instead of the crock pot. I arrived at this epiphany simply as a result of the crock pot being in use for another food stuff.
Until the next time...
