I like these photos Mike took from our fall color drive the other day.
When we were looking for far-off swatches of color, here's what we saw -
It seemed as though the aspen were a mix of still green, a little bit of gold, and lots that were past the peak and had fallen.
But close up, here's what they looked like.
And, although not of aspen, this was a cool sight!
My book club has been participating in "Loveland Loves to Read" for several years now. This week we enjoyed dinner out together and then went to hear Anthony Doerr, the author of All the Light We Cannot See, speak.
He was fascinating! What a great speaker! And he encouraged everyone to create - whether it is with words, or paint, or fabric, or yarn - whatever you can do. He believes that creating is good for us and the world, even if no one ever sees what we create.
This week, Mike and I enjoyed the movie, "Christopher Robin."
And we enjoyed Discount Day, too! Only $5 each!
It is a sweet movie, part live action and part animated. I loved the scene at the end where Pooh asks Christopher Robin what day it is, and Christopher replies, "It's today, Pooh." Pooh exclaims, "Today is my favorite day!" Good to think of Today as your favorite day!
And because it's that time of year where we are seeing pumpkins everywhere, I just had to play with them in my sewing room!
Fun with strings!
After my Saturday post asking for advice about using phone book pages for string foundations, I decided to keep sewing with them, and it's working out just fine!
Hope you are enjoying the beginnings of fall where you live (or Spring, if you are in the southern hemisphere)! I really enjoy the changing of the seasons.
