It's no secret that this is my favorite time of year.  There isn't much about autumn that doesn't delight the senses.  
I finished hand-quilting this Halloween runner - it was a joy.  I always forget how much I love hand quilting.  Nothing compares to the quiet satisfaction of the running stitch in a gorgeous variegated thread.  I long for the old days when I actually quilted all of my pieces by hand.  I didn't have the sense of time racing by back then that I do today.  Have to find new ways to SLOW DOWN!
I wanted to bind this, but remembered that 'HUEY" still has my sewing machine.  Heads are gonna roll!
Some of this fabric came all the way from Australia.  Scott brought it back for me when he travelled there to see his daughter.  He selected two 3 yard pieces which I treat like precious jewels - cutting in the most frugal way!  
Happy Monday, all.

Beautiful oranges! I love this time of year. It has finally started to cool down at night. So it is still cool in the early mornings!

Lovely oranges. Autumn is definitely my favorite time of year even if we barely see it here.
