A fire burning.
Colors of Autumn.
A dream of a Blanket.
I have changed the way I store cloth and thread. I used to sort by colors, now I sort by warm and cool colors. And it is funny which colors end up in which pile depending on my sense of them when I sort them.
A ring. The birth of a season. A became autumn.
It was late, and I thought, oh, I could just patch the pillow. I do that a lot. Stitch small cloth to pillows. That it a great old floral isn't it? A jungle of joyous growth. A wild beast could live there.
As I recall, I had the same thought here.
Cloth as place.
Anyway, here we are again.
Still no hard freeze, some late indigo and marigolds anticipating some warmth today.

Marigolds! One of my first favorites as a kid, still always has a place in my garden.
The A feels to me like it’s held safe by infinity and radiating outward.
They remind me of mom.
I like how you described how it feels.
Autumn and happy beasts!! It is always so warming and welcoming coming here! Patching pillows, so smart!
A pillow is such a special place to consider.
Hi, appreciating your joy and coziness here. oxo.
Your colors today are just delicious, and that large floral behind the A is amazing, and that little flame stitch that you do is my favorite. I haven’t been following you for as long as some of the others so if it has a name, I’ve missed it and would appreciate knowing what you call it. I need to start embroidering more.
i call that the wrap stitch and you can find it in the methods index here:
And you reminded me to add it to the glossary which I will do right now.
“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking successive autumns.”
Yes, aren’t those word beautiful!?
My very favorite autumnal quotations! Thanks, Laurie.
We have had snow for 3 mornings in a row. Nothing that really sticks but so pretty with the fall colors. My two favorite seasons blended together. Love your color!
I love that frosting of snow on fall foliage.
Oh Jude, your colors,
thank you warmly…………..
a warm hug to you.
“A” for applauding this year’s spectacular colors. The corn husking, braiding & storing for next years use. Autumn joy!
I really thought we would be colorless after such hard dry season, but wow…
Gorgeous Autumn colors in all three images…we had FROST this morning (34 degrees)… mind-blowing.

Or make ya wanna go snuggle back into bed! Ha ha!!
It’s so true about mood and color perception!Realizing that I do that as well with my clothing choices. I think the Beast will be happy there.❤️
yes, it is so new each time, color.
a beast will find comfort where it can.
Love that autumn piece💙
And gorgeous outdoors photo!
a little chill, a little warmth, love these days.
The colours in the north of Ontario are spectacular. Almost neon reds and oranges. The hills are blazing with colour at the moment.
Fall has a wonderful sense of drawing inwards, cooking yummy soups, squirrel time…gathering thoughts for winter.
building a winter’s nest
Oh that last pic!! I can feel the season!! I love the sun-ball peeking through…and you’ve got me singing Johnny Cash this morning 🙂 xo
love that song.
The Autumn leaves of red and gold. . . and of Mari-golds too! Beautiful together and fleeting.
everything is doing the final dance.
Laughing…I sort fabric in anticipation. 🙂 I’ve been turning the gas fireplace on…the cats love the warmth. Contentment.
Deb~ Love that…I often dress by mood 😉
yes, is everything we choose to do that?
a little warmth on a chilly day is so inviting.
How beautiful the colors of Fall…and fleeting.
is there any beauty not fleeting?
