garden, quilt shows

Autumn is my favorite time of year

I don’t really mind that the days get progressively darker because the deepening of the days means an explosion of color over the landscape.  The mums in the front yard are blooming heartily.

We’ve lost a few, that’s to be expected.   And next year I suspect a trip to Long Island with Mary will replenish our stock.  And perhaps my sweeties wife (that would be me) will invest some time in the front garden weeding though I have a severe distaste for weeding!


The trees are doing what I expected them to do with the lack of rain this year, the oranges and reds are exploding everywhere and the color is rich and deep.  I love how mother nature uses color in her quilts and I’m thinking that brown may play an important role in the next quilt.  As I think about it, I can see brown playing an unexpected and colorful role.  Thankfully I’m at a quilt show later this week and will have access to some great thread!

PS if the mane on Barnums neck is any indication (started filling out noticeably 4 weeks ag0) we’re in for some winter this year!

The gazanias are in bloom again.  I love these bright sunny flowers.  Each one is unique and beautiful and the colors suit the season well.

I’m leaving in the morning for MQX West in Portland for a week of quilts, teaching quilting and more quilts.  There is room in my classes and I’d love to have the time with you.

I’ll be blogging from MQX as I can.  Since there is a 3 hour time difference we’ll see what I can do!  I’ll be in Houston in just a couple of short weeks lecturing/teaching and looking at quilts!

Happy Quilting!

  1. I love the autumn colours! Our trees are looking wonderful!!! Lots of yellows, reds, and oranges. Even deep maroons. Lots of trees still are green, which is making a beautiful scene!
