Hello there, lovely!
We’re at the end of October and I just can’t believe it, can you?! The trees are beginning to change colors here in Alabama and it looks like we’re going to have a beautiful fall.
Cooler weather is finally here, too. In fact, we turned the heat on this past weekend and I brewed my first cup of hot apple cider tea just yesterday morning.
We’re settling into the cozy season here at my house…
and that means pulling out the hand-knit blankies and my grandmother’s quilts, the cinnamon spice candles, and, of course, the electric tea kettle. I love a warm tasty cuppa in the morning when the temperature drops.
How about you? What’s your favorite cold weather beverage? Hot tea and hot chocolate are my favorites.
I went to the Farmer’s Market earlier this week and found myself in an explosion of fall color.
Bright yellow mums, vivid orange pumpkins, ruby red apples, golden bales of hay – signs of fall everywhere!
I thought I had all the threads I needed, but I changed my mind about some of them. Do you ever do that?
Here are a few of the threads I’m going with now…
I can hardly wait to dive into stitching this happy canvas! It’s getting my full attention – right after I wrap up the project I’m doing for the spring issue of Making magazine.
I already have some ideas whirling around in my head for what I’m going to do. I’ll share some of my notes – and my progress – with you when I start. ????
And if you want to see my progress on the Tuscaloosa canvas, just click here. I’m nearly finished with it!
Before I go, there’s a little housekeeping I want to share with you, too.
NeedleNotes will be delivered on Thursdays, beginning
That means there won’t be an issue of NeedleNotes or a blog post next week.
In the meanwhile, have a wonderful rest of your day and Happy Stitching!
PS: What do you do to cozy up your house for fall and winter? Tell me in the comments box below and I’ll add your name to the drawing for an exclusive Serendipity Needleworks needle minder. I can’t wait to hear from you! ❤️
