Happy September!

Well, we made it through this very challenging summer. I'm soooo excited that September has arrived! I can't wait to break out the autumn decor, and settle in with some sewing and stitching.

This beautiful crabapple tree is right around the corner -- it lights up the roadside.


Today was Farmer's Market Day -- always something interesting to see. (Yes, actually, those are pet wolves! And their owner was a bit quirky, too.) (P.S. That is NOT me talking to him.)

The Halloween issue of Just Cross Stitch came in today's mail. I spotted several projects that might be fun to stitch.

I managed to measure and cut the borders for my autumn sampler yesterday. Can you believe it: a completion is in the offing! When was the last time I did a monthly tally? ... when was the last time I completed anything?

Jeanne - I've been lurking out here for quite a while, and I know that your life has been full of many challenges these last few months. Not completing a project? Not having a tally? Hey - at this point I think you are probably really happy to begin to unpack all of your fun supplies! To me, that's a big accomplishment and I'm really looking forward to seeing your sewing/stitching space. Your new home and location are both beautiful. Sit back, relax, and just enjoy for a while!

PET wolves? Sheesh! My son became enamored of some half-wolves but I wouldn't imagine full wolves as leashed pets! Sounds like you're meeting some unique natives in your area, LOL.

1st day of September and I spotted three fall leaves levitating in a spiderweb in my backyard...love the persimmon trees when they turn too.

Enjoy your finish, and a new cross stitch!

What a pretty tree. Are you saying those are 100% wolves?? Is that allowed to stroll around people-inhabited areas with them??? Big Bear is beginning to sound wild and wooly!

I love the look of those crab apples- so different to the ones of my childhood in New Zealand!
I would have loved to meet those wolves, I have long been fascinated by wolves. I read Nicholas Sparks 'the Loop'. I cried.

I knew I could come visit you for a reminder that fall IS actually around the corner. All I can think of these days is how to get through 100+ heat and smoke! Wolves? Yikes! Don't think I could ever trust that they're tame!

Seems like fall has happened just overnight around my neck of the woods. An entire tree has already changed its leaves.
Wolves as pets? I have enough to handle with just one little pup.
