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!
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!
