I had to go out and see for myself...

After a week of some of the most amazing October weather that I had ever seen the likes of in Ohio, I refused to believe that Fall had arrived. My daughter swam in a pool this week. We ate outside. We are still wearing shorts and sandals, though I have added a flannel shirt and wool socks. Perhaps those who keep telling me that Fall has arrived are right this time.
I tend to be a very black and white person, which means I have to see it to believe it. So I grabbed my camera and here is what I found just this morning. Wood being stacked on the log holder up at the house...check! Trees turning stunning shades or orange, gold and red...check! Pale blonde corn leaves and brittle corn stalks against a threatening sky...check! Feed corn waiting for harvest....check! Wait! What's this I see?! Tenacious flowers clinging to the last glimmer of a summer that was, but is no more...check. So out come the colors of Fall. The warmth of delicious chocolates and a warm cheddar that might easily be thought of as pumpkin. A sweet little kit with a Jo Morton pattern with wee blocks of 2 1/4" Good grief...I hope that is the finished size! Another quilt being pieced for the Home of the Brave Quilt project with 9 patch blocks that were lovingly made and sent from Brown Quilts. Once the cat finishes with her nap, rows will be sashed and borders added.
