October 2012

How beautifully leaves grow old. 

How full of light and color are their last days.

This is the view from my window on October 1, 2012.

I was glad to see the last of September this year!

In August, I was looking forward to September with excitement because I was expecting visits from quilters from The Netherlands and Australia.

The visits were lovely, but it was bad timing because of a death in the immediate family. Today is the six year anniversary of the sudden death of my sister’s husband too. Autumn is definitely not my favorite time of year.

From necessity, I discovered that when I retreat in silence and don’t update the blog or Pinterest or the Yahoo Group, things are relatively quiet. It has been helpful to just have to answer a few “urgent” questions in the past few weeks. It is nice to know I can do that in extraordinary circumstances, but I hope I never have another month like this one!


I am cleaning up my desk today and starting fresh, so please stay tuned for The Next New Thing.


I think it will be Hunter’s Star, okay? I have lots of designs like this variation to clean up. Three new shape collections were “almost finished” a month ago, so it shouldn’t take too long.

Maybe you didn’t even miss me, but this is to let you know we’re back!
