Cool Weather=More Sewing

Autumn seems to be the favorite season of a lot of family members.  It's a season of cooler weather, pumpkin spice everything, Halloween and the upcoming winter holidays.

 When autumn arrives, it feels to me like the beginning of sewing season again.  All I want to do is make quilts again after a long hot summer--and it's been really hot here.  Does it feel that way to you?

This season I'm concentrating on making quilts for the next generation of children in my family.  There's a wide range--2 years old to 15 years old and I've been remiss on making most of them quilts.  It's actually the kids' grandmothers that have hinted about quilts for the kids.  Holy Toledo!  When I actually made my list, there were 16 kids that need quilts!

Fortunately, the wide range of kids allows me to finish some UFOs I have.  I was actually shocked when I realized how many UFOs I have...

On the other hand, the wide range of ages means that some projects are already started with UFOs...that's me seeing the glass half-full.

I do find that having a list helps me finish projects.  Do you?  Happily, my guild is doing another UFO challenge and I'll join that as well.  

What's on your list for autumn/winter sewing?

As for the garden, well it's time to cut things back and start the fall clean-up.  I've already filled two garbage cans with cuttings and I'll probably fill 3 a week for the next month or so.  

How is your garden doing?  Do you have anything to share for Flower Friday?  Please email me photos at if you do!

Have a great day!

  1. I love the cooler weather, it gives me so much energy. The angle of the sun is different too, I can see things more clearly. I do make a list of all my quilting projects. I currently only have 3 UFOs. (If you don't count the 16 quilt tops waiting to be quilted - ha!)
