Happy Autumn!!!

Well, I wasn't here to wish you all a happy first day of autumn, but I thought about you! Autumn, with it's beautiful colors and crisp air is my favorite season.

If only we could have it all year! Is there even such a place?

My first day of autumn was spent in 90+ degree weather. As you can tell by the pic below, we spent the last few days in Orlando. The first couple days was business, and then we hit three of the four Disney parks, not to mention Downtown Disney, three times! Magic Kingdom was already decorated for the season. Absolutely beautiful! To look at it made it feel like fall. The pic above is one of the arrangements they had hanging from the light poles. I wanted to bring one home!This quilt was made by a few of the women from North Coast Needlers Quilt Guild. When I saw the pattern, I just knew how I wanted to quilt it. I thought the leaves might be a little tricky, but I just stitched in veins, and they almost look real. I did a small swirl pattern in the background to give it some movement, and a leaf pattern in the outside border. You can buy a ticket for a chance to win it at the Reflections of Nature Quilt Show at the Rocky River Nature Center in November.

The meal has been eaten.
The kitchen is clean.
The leftovers are stashed.
The walk has been taken.
Everyone is happy and fed and blessed.
Now I have the time to stop by.
On this Thanksgiving Day, I wanted to tell you that I am thankful for you; for this blog; for inspiration and connection. Sending you much love, Relyn
