Feeling Fallish

The weather changed suddenly. One day it was 90+ and the next it was 58. Not complaining, we love it. Sebastian, who has finally dropped a few pounds is leading the pack in morning run-arounds. Everyone is having fun playing in the yard and not all standing by the door with tongues hanging our waiting to get in the air conditioning. All are sleeping later in the morning, a very good thing from my point of view.

Last night after dinner, when all were settled in for naps till yogurt time, I picked up my stitching, mostly Christmas stuff, and thought how nice and peaceful it felt.
I did finish a piece. It's called 'Pretty Little New York' by Jodi Rice of Satsuma Designs. I have another of her designs called 'Pretty Little San Francisco' that I'll probably get to in the spring. It was a fun piece to work on.
I also dug out a cross stitch designed by Mary Englebreit. I did this in 2000 and was stitching the names of my dogs around the edge. At that time I was only up to Bentley, so I need to put the rest of the names on it.
I think I need to bake some bread and an apple pie to get those great fallish smells into the house. Are you all feeling fall in the air, or spring for our downunder friends?

No doubt about it, fall is in the air here in northern Virginia today. Our windows are open for the fresh breeze, and I even have a sweater on. I love this time of year--Also love your cross stitch!

Hope all is well .. Enjoy your fall day, Sue!

Feeling like fall outside of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Need to dig out the gloves for our early morning walks.

Well, it's 105 here today, but they have the "Autumn" displays out at Von's with the cinnamon/spice scent! Does that count?!?

I turned chilly here, too. The temperature never topped 55 all weekend, and it drizzled, too. Not enough rain to be worthwhile, just enough to be annoying. That really sucks. My dearly beloved was complaining about the chill, so I lit the furnace for the first floor. After his bypass, I'm not going to be a stickler for not turning on the furnace until Sept. 21.

Your cross stitch pieces are really pretty. It's nice that you can find time to keep it up.

I just love your stitching - beautiful!

I am sitting on a throw of the same "Spot" image. THAT is enough to make me cross stitch again. Off to see if the internet will lead me to the pattern!

Oh -- and Sissy and I are loving the temperature change. I think Gretchen would love to live somewhere tropical, but like most girls, she's happy to see her favorite sweaters again too.

So funny! I have that same Engelbreit saying, only mine is a fiberboard plaque, and it sits in my sewing room. I guess all dog people are drawn to the same things.

Oh, and yes it is cooling nicely here. Still warm during the day, but no AC needed anymore.
