  3. Anxious here to see what you girls have been up to. I am sitting this one out; going to sit back and enjoy the hop!! Though I extremely enjoy Bowls with Borders. September is sad in one way; summer is almost gone...but nice days and cooler nights are wonderful too. And Marla and I are going on a trip to Pennsylvania on the 16th for a week. Can't wait....

  5. I do look forward to Fall. It's my second favourite season after summer. There was no sewing at my house because my machine broke on Friday and it's in the shop for a week. I could cut fabric and plan projects though. And I enjoyed summer while I still can.

  6. Apple pie and cheddar cheese. That is my idea of fall. Ok, you can eat it all year round, but the new crop of apples is so yummy. Maybe your sneak peak reminder me of this? The cooler temp also gives me more energy. I had enough this weekend to try paper piecing for the first time. Thank you for your inspiration to try something new. Loving it.

    1. Hi Evelyn....apple pie without cheese is like a hug without a squeeze...lol My Nanny used to always say that to me...I still say it today...and I sew agree with you...apple pies my absolute fav, and this time of year, despite not having too many local apples, I did make a few pies and a few jars of sauce lol
      ahhh 4 to 2 for fall...

  7. Ooooooh, September means fall is close! I love fall colors and the weather should be getting cooler here in the Southwest soon. I am going to be out of town a lot for the next few weeks, hope I don't miss too much of the fun!

    1. Hi Sharon...7 to 2....mmmm maybe it is because we are quilters...hard to quilt in summer..too hot to have something heavy on our laps...
      and yes Dots...I half suspected you would be sew ahead of me....I need to rev up my engine lol

  10. Well while I do love the fresh apples and most things made with pumpkin (I'm craving Pumpkin Spice Muffins at the moment) I don't love fall. Why you ask? It is because of what comes after. I hate winter. I hate my constantly freezing toes and fingers (thanks to my faulty thyroid). I tolerate the heat so much better.

    Yes I am working on my Dots plan and hope to get busy at it soon.

    1. HI Michele, a summer lady, well we are at opposite ends...I sew love winter, heat is certainly my enemy, except in the kitchen...lol You have to start knitting cashmere socks lol...

      Delete
  11. ok.. Michele made it 7 to 3... and I am making it 8 to 3!

    I absolutely LOVE Fall and anything to do with the cooler weather! I LOVE winter time too! The ladies at church would always say "NOW it is cold" when I walked in with a coat on... which wasn't very often... Maybe twice a year in mid-February... Maybe that is why I have so much arthritis now. lol

    Looking forward to the DOTS!!!

    1. Good Morning Thearica, ahhhh yes 8 to 3 in favour of cooler weather...yep I am there with you.. and psst, arthritis is not caused by cold...our joints are like a barometer .... in actual fact if you immerse your body or wherever joints are inflamed....ice cold water actually helps to reduce inflammation... just an fyi this lovely foggy wed morning here on the escarpment.

  12. I'm frantically trying to complete one thing for Dots on Dots but I know you'll probably have a hundred! My sewing machine is acting ugly and I'm just praying it won't quit on me before I get the binding on. School is slowing down, thank goodness, but I still feel like The White Rabbit rushing here and there. We leave a week from tomorrow for a two week camping trip - fun but not much stitching time. And fun because it was 48 degrees where we're going this morning at 6:00 a.m. At that time here it was 88 degrees! I'm sick of the heat and can't wait for cooler weather. My daughter informed me yesterday she needs a table runner for October. I reminded her that I made her one last year that spells AUTUMN. She said it was perfect for September but she needed a pumpkin. :) Children! blessings, marlene

  13. Not sure what the score is, but I agree with Michele up there.....I can't stand winter, so fall is a bittersweet time, not a loved time. It tells me dreaded winter is near! LOL I love the warmies! Can't wait to see your dotty projects! Heehee!

  15. I love September too. The weather in September here in Sweden is so crispy and the leaves are slowly changing color to wonderful yellow and red. It is first in October they are going to fell off the trees. But I am so busy with Dots on Dots, I find it hard to stop. It is so fun
    One more project to start with the Dots. But who cares I am retired and have lot of time to play.
