Helen Hunt Jackson, September, 1830-1885
Oh September! You are one of my favorite months of the year.
And to prove what a lovely month September can be, the weather that was in the 90′s yesterday, will be in the very pleasant low 80′s today. Could there be a nicer temperature?
My garden is starting a late summer bloom. I am finally getting a good harvest out of my garden. Peaches are on. Apples are coming. September is heaven.
I’m working on a few little projects.
After a break of being too busy to work, I’m back to piecing my quilt.
I’m also getting ready to embroider new pillowcases for my bed to go with my new quilt, a gift from my mom. I’m thinking of using the free Queen Anne’s Lace Pillowcase pattern from Alicia from Posy Get’s Cozy.
I started stitching this little embroidered dishtowel again after beginning it in the spring. I’m sort of making it up as I go along. Which may or may not be the best idea. I’ll know when I’m done. I’d like to find a clever way to make the bees… any ideas?
Speaking of making it up as I go along… I made this little hair clip for my girls yesterday. I thought a little embroidery would be fun, but when I was done, I wasn’t so sure. Maybe less will be more on the next clip. I love these little projects, that use my smallest scraps of wool.
I already feel like I’m shaking off the sluggishness of late summer. September always brings with it a productive, happy energy. I look forward to a month of harvesting, canning, sewing, and spending as much time out of doors as I can. I love September.
