The air is cool and crisp—trees are sparse with golden, bronze, and orange leaves—a smokiness fills the air. It could only be mid autumn!
Our slow and glorious autumn continues here in the midwest. There are still two red rosebuds on my rosebushes and the lobelias are still blooming in blue. The few light frosts we’ve had so far didn’t reach these.
I made four sample dresses while putting together my last knitting pattern for Amelia Thimble’s sweater dress. I wasn’t planning on embroidering these four dresses yet, but dear Amelia had other plans. “Pretty please, just one!”, she said. So yes, I gave in and completed one for her. I must say I am glad I did as her sweet face makes me happy.
And, because it gave me a reason to get outside on this glorious fall day, even if only for a little bit.
Our magnolia tree provided the most beautiful golden back drop of color.
Amelia Thimble’s “Glorious Autumn” dress/headband ensemble will be available tonight (November 9, 2016) at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com.
