Just wishing and hoping, and hoping and quilting

The fall equinox will be September 23at 5:05 am, and I am so very ready for cooler weather. Even though the temperature outside may still be 88, the light in the house has already moved to fall locations and I am responding to that shift. I rearranged my studio so that my painting area is directly below the south window, and I have designed a new tessellations wall quilt for this fall. (see the basic layout above).

Lots of little fabric squares being cut out and then sewn together.

I made leftovers soup this afternoon (leftover pork and broth, leftover chicken, leftover spaghetti sauce, leftover squash, and then chopped onion, potato, carrots, and celery with some herbs. YUM! and then we will also have a small loaf of homemade Country-style bread from Small Batch Baking.

This weekend I will be heading over to Sarasota for the Florida Watercolor Society show - lots of brilliant paintings and inspiring demos, and of course, lots of vendors!!!!

Chris, we used to have leftover soup once a week growing up. I adopted this method when I got married. Somehow we got away from it and now I have a little boy that is not a fan of soup so I have to use leftovers for my husband's lunches instead. I miss the soup though.


PS have fun at the art show.
