Where's Fall?

Um, Mother Nature.....what happened to our fall weather?  It's still in the 80's here in Chicagoland, and while it is nice, my seasonal clock is set to fall temps, and so far, there's no sign of them.  
Over the weekend, I began to decorate the house for Halloween, and I want those cooler days.
Trying to get a few things done in the house while I prep for market.  It's part of the ritual of the changing of the season.  I'm doing my part....I just want the weather to match the calendar.  

I love sweater weather!  I made this table runner eons ago and I still love it.  
Right now, there'a a lot of paperwork to do.  Writing patterns, creating a brochure with all my new offerings, needed graphics to create.....you get the idea.  Lots of computer work.  It all goes hand in hand with market prep.

But....I love to sew, and have been trying to find time to sew...even 30 minutes a day....makes me happy.  While working with all of those 1 inch strips, I have also been sewing tiny Two Patches.  They finish to 1 inch by 1/2 inch.  JOY!  Another new design I'm working on for the future.  

Hoping your weather is just the way you want it, and that you're finding time to sew...even though your day is filled with other  tasks that aren't nearly as rewarding!  

Be well....have a happy needle.

  2. Beautiful decor. I love that old sideboard. We want cooler weather in Alabama as well. It's just rainy and warm. Perhaps soon :)

  5. I am longing for sweater weather too!! It will be 84 today in the mountains, usually it is in the low 70s by now, and I'm wishing for highs in the 60s!

  6. Sweater weather is in Utah, Pam--and Fall colors, too!
    I love glimpses of your warm and inviting home. Your decor is very fun. I like that it is more cute than creepy. I don't do the creepy side of Halloween.
    Whatever you end up making from those tiny 2-patches, I know I am going to love it!
