Fall is particularly welcome this year after record breaking heat this summer. We seemed to have instantly slammed into cooler weather and I’m delighted!
And if it’s Fall, it must mean I’m prepping for Houston. Because I kit my classes, students walk in with snips, pencil and paper, and everything else is provided-they love that! It is a lot of work to make and ship them but I think it’s worth it in the end.
Just think, I only have around 330 more sandwiches to go… What would I do without podcasts to entertain me?
I chose cotton batting this year instead of 80/20-but the sandwiches are soooo much heavier. Since I’ll be shipping 400 sandwiches that means it will be more expensive to ship them. I ship the sandwiches and some quilts ahead of time since I will fill my 2 huge 29″ suitcases with 100 lb of teaching supplies and the bulk of my quilts.
I miscalculated and had to order even more fabric. My new studio is perfectly set up to accommodate cutting and assembling the kits. I continue to marvel that I have such a fabulous “work place”!
I have to share some yard photos. My grasses are at their peak in the fall:
Love this perky little guy-kind of corn-tassel-looking to me.
My Japanese Forest grass is in on it too.
We don’t get the spectacular Fall of the Northeast so we settle for much more subtle leaf color changes.
My Autumn Sedum is pretty showy this year. These guys are our version of fall!
And this is my book-well it’s kinda my book, an early version of my book. I have new found respect for book authors-it is a LOT of work! I have a long way to go but I hit some deadlines this week and I am spent and weary. But give me a good night’s sleep and I’ll be all over it tomorrow. Onward!
