I cannot believe I have let a whole month slip by! Well, 'slip' may not be the best way to put it, we've been keeping ourselves busy around here at the Trio Farm. And I've finally spent a little time in my new sewing studio (emphasis on a little).
I managed to get my fourth Swoon block done. Eventually they will all go into a queen sized quilt for our master bedroom... eventually. I'm enjoying taking my time with these-- using them as a break from other projects, or in the case of this one, a way to dip my toes back into sewing after a long break.
At first I wasn't so sure about the brown for the star, but Mr. Trio liked it from the start, and I find it's growing on me.
As for other things going on around here...
This little guy (a beautiful Yellow Warbler) flew into our window one morning last week-- poor guy. I'm thrilled to say there were no lasting injuries, he was just stunned out of his wits. He hung out on our porch for about 15 minutes while I got to photograph him and enjoy his beauty up-close, and then he took off again.
While I have been an early riser out of necessity for a few years (and now out of habit), it's only been since moving here to Trio Farm that I have begun to truly love the early morning. It's a magical time of day here-- dare I say, ethereal.
And now these foggy mornings are turning cool and crisp-- autumn is in the air. My favorite time of year. The apples here are turning red and hanging heavy, and a some of the leaves are beginning to turn.
I'm so excited for our first fall back East, and all the colors that go along with it!
And with a new season comes the need for a new table runner. Right?!? Yes, I do think so.
