New Series

It still feels like summer. The skies are clear, the high temperatures are in the 80s and 90s, but there's fog along the river in the mornings now, the public schools open on Tuesday, and it's cooler at night so yes, fall is coming on.

I'm thinking of my next series of doll quilts. Do you remember that joke from your elementary school days: What is black and white and red (read) all over? The answer is, of course, a newspaper. I have a lot of black/white prints and solid white and black and red so that might be fun one. I also like the idea of doing a Maple Leaf block series in different colors. Or maybe applique pumpkins with a flying geese border.

It's going to have to wait a few days thought. Three of my sons and their wives are coming to visit this Labor Day weekend. The fourth is in rural Vermont where, thankfully, they only lost their land line phone (now restored) and aren't dealing with the horrendous devastation Hurricane Irene wrought.

I pick pumpkins. Whoops, you weren't asking for input. I still pick pumpkins!

Maple leaf blocks would be perfect for this time of year, but black and white and red would be cool, too. Decisions, decisions!
