” La terre est bleue comme une orange…” This first line of a poem by Paul Eluard makes me think of autumn. We are transitioning from summer (blue) to fall (orange), … slowly. Mother Nature has given us so many glorious colorful days! We are so lucky! I was able to spend some time in the Berkshires earlier this month and took the picture above there. I love how the path and the bridge create a beautiful metaphor for life, for transitions… Don’t you?
Besides taking walks with our new puppy, Bear, I am sewing again! After the craziness of back-to-school, I have been able to find more time to work on my projects. First, I completed the Hobo bag presented in an earlier post:
I love it! It is so big and sturdy. I use it for books and notebooks. It is perfect!
Then, a friend of mine asked me to make her a few pie holders/casserole carriers. Here are the first two, both reversible 🙂
Earlier this week, I moved my “sewing room” out of our dining room, and into the basement! Tada!
I have now my own space away from everyone, where I will be able to start projects and leave them out until they are done, without disturbing anyone. My family has been very patient with this new hobby and I thank them, but it was time!
My latest project is making a bag to carry my sewing machine to sewing class. It might turn into a weekender bag… I love the fabric so much!
On this orange note, enjoy the fall and Happy Creating!
