After five years in the very sunny south, I’m ready for fall again. It’s always been my favorite season and it’s virtually nonexistent in New Orleans. Oh, you get the occasional yellow leaf here or there, but nothing like farther north. I know it won’t last and soon winter will be here, but for now, I’m going to enjoy it as much as possible. And that means family picnics on pretty quilts among the leaves. (and cocktails for the adults!)
I love watching my daughter discover the joys of the world…like kicking up leaves as you walk and listening to them crunch when you step on them. Seeing the leaves fall from the trees and having her dad douse us in piles of leaves.
Much of our life is up in the air these days, but moments like this one help to ground everything and help prioritize. As long as we can do this, we are doing just fine.
Lest you think I have not been doing any sewing, let me assure you that I am. I’m in the middle of quilting that infamous zig zag quilt. 5 bobbins in and I’m about 3/8ths done. But I think I may love it. I’ll post later on putting the rows together and basting…and then it will be quilting and binding! Some of you are probably already done because these steps are all pretty self-explanatory. But I’ll post them anyway. 😉 Here’s a progress shot from my phone last night.
