Yesterday it was still warm enough to be summer, although the wind had a bite to it. Today was a different story. I went out to the mail box, but that was the only time I left the house. We haven’t started the furnace yet, but I did wear a jacket most of the day. Won’t be long now before we start digging into that stack of wood.
I had made a small rag quilted table runner using Moda’s Countdown to Christmas yesterday. I wanted to go ahead and use the rest of the collection today, but I didn’t want to do the same thing again, so I laid out a machine pieced and quilted design. I had worked with the design once before, so it went together without any problems. I finished hand stitching the back of the binding after dinner, and laid out another runner.
We are finally getting some rain, like a serious fall rain. Still nice and gentle, but off and on all day. I may get tired of the cloudy weather in a day or two, but for right now, the rain is so nice. It has been dry here since the first of July.
I’ll post a picture of the table runner as soon as I get it listed on Etsy in the morning. I should get the one I laid out tonight finished tomorrow, too. I would like to have one new listing every day this week. That’s my goal. We’ll have to see if I can do it!
