Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the blazing colors of changing leaves, and I love the cool, crisp air. Something has been wrong this year. It hasn't been cool and crisp! We've had highs in the 80's! Whoever heard of 85 degrees in October??
A lot of people love this warm weather, but not I. I am eager for the cool fall temps to arrive. I hope they do. I'd hate to go from hot directly to winter! Already we are past the peak colors and leaves are falling fast. I haven't been out to take pictures because it has been too hot! Sad, but true.

I'm working on various sewing projects. Trying to get more done for our church bazaar. I have a lot more made this year than I have for many years, but I want to have lots more! We're trying to expand our boutique, and I hope we do that AND get more customers in to buy our wares. This is a non-traditional (scrappy) table runner that I finished last night.
Today at church a woman who knew me way back in the old days gave me a church bulletin that is 50 years old! I was 8 years old, almost 9. My dad was the minister. I recognize several of the names listed in the announcements of meetings and events. They're all listed by "Mrs.," of course. Mrs. John Smith will be in charge of the such-and-such meeting. Weird. It was fun to look at that old bulletin and remember being 8 years old in that church. I may have even folded that bulletin 50 years ago! We used to fold them by hand at the dining room table every Saturday.
