when I woke up this morning it was much cooler -- which I like a lot
the wind was blowing, moving the aspen leaves on the tree just over the fence in my neighbor's yard from my back door
it sounds different than summer leaves
fall is coming -- the aspen leaves are starting to change in texture if not color yet
and I picked the first pumpkin out of my garden yesterday -- cut little sugar pie, all beautifully orange
I forgot to mention one of the other things that was in the envelope from the Hoffman folks
the sheet of paper announcing the 2011 competition that also shows what all of the fabrics will look like
I've seen the actual challenge fabric, and the picture doesn't do it justice, so I'm already thinking about ideas to make next year's entry
the judging sheet was also in the packet -- all very useful information for making the next piece even better
one more afghan square completed this week too (and another one started)
I'm working on other stuff more and afghan squares less right now -- have Christmas things and show things to finish!!
today I'm doing laundry and starting in on the house things that need doing before my daughter arrives on Saturday -- changing the sheets, airing out the room, hosing out the dog's kennel -- the usual stuff
the mundane goes on and hopefully this afternoon time in the studio to do some more stamping and painting and stitching!
