Looking for Fall

Our days continue sunny, although a few clouds drifted in this afternoon. I heard there was fog and I went looking for it. Didn't find much. But here at the beach, the horizon line is almost invisible.


Facing the other direction, a bit of fog obscured the islands, but it wasn't quite the autumnal scene I was hoping for. 


I'm working on a project - in the deep rich colours of fall. 

Are you longing for more autumn, or has she arrived in all her glory in your area?

Hi Lorrie,
I enjoy your blog so much! So much so that I'm inspired to look around the beauty God's created more often. And I'm going back and reading old posts. Wish we lived closer. Actually, I'm on an island west of Seattle, so I'm not too far from you as Mr. Crow flies. But an international border, lots of water, well... we're so close but so far. So, instead, I'll just enjoy getting to know you online since I can't visit over tea or coffee.
Please keep sharing.

Oops, forgot to answer your question. Autumn is trying here on my little northwest island. A nearby group of maple trees has one with red leaves, but the others are full of green leaves as apparently they think it's still summer. It has been a nice and dry summer.

Looking forward to seeing what you're doing with the warm colored fabrics.

I'm still not sure that I'm ready for autumn and the short her days that lie ahead though that beach scene makes me want to be able to have fall by the water!

Lovely fabrics...very autumnal.

I am looking for more fall as only the swampy areas have color. I expect peak color in about two weeks. I think your shore photo looks very much like autumn.

As you'll have seen already Autumn has arrived in Normandy, too.
Gorgeous fabrics, what are you making now? Love the funky scissors!

Lorrie, I will not complain, but I am ready for her to show all her glory.

There is no need to go looking for autumn here, it's all around me. But the glory is still keeping itself well hidden in all the rain which is falling on these poor, sodden islands.

The leaves are still green and the sky is blue over here. I long for a proper Ontario autumn with scarlet leaves against the blue sky. Ah well - I do enjoy the warmth left in the sun!

I'm guessing that you're making a Thanksgiving runner...I made one using a similar method last week. I like those scissors!

The beautiful colours in your fabrics have started to appear here, so autumn is creeping into this part of the country.

It's feeling more like late summer over here...but I am enjoying the odd splash of brightly coloured fall leaves. Your project is looking very fallish...and lovely!
