What happened to Autumn...

The calendar say it's Fall....the days are getting shorter...my house is even all decked out for the season...
All the signs of Autumn were about....until the weekend...where did Fall go?? The temperature today is supposed to reach 108!! The newspaper didn't say HOT outside...it read SCORCHING! Is this the pay back we get for such a mild, wonderful summer while the rest of the country roasted? Well...I don't like this one bit! I expect this sort of thing in July and August...but in a couple of days it will be October...oh well...I just keep my A/C on and sew...


Here's some of what I've been working on....yes...more bags....I need to get more made to bring to The Wool Lady this week. I didn't bring enough on my last trip, so I have been busy sewing and I'll show you some of them. I thought this was a nice Fall bag....it will look great with jeans...
if it ever cools down enough to put them on...
Here's a close up of the fabrics...I love navy and white....so clean looking....




This one is very simple, but the fabric is so beautiful that I wanted to show it off...



I just added ties to the sides out of an aqua and cream damask...it has a magnetic snap closure....






This one is Fallish too...is that a word...simple too...but great fabric...






Here's a close up of the button...it is made of wood and Don stained it to match the fabric...I have lots to do today, so I better get back to work...
Enjoy your day!!!

Those bags are gorgeous. Our temps finally dipped into the 60's today and we all about froze.

Phew! That's hot! It's been unusually humid here today, and I feel like I'm back in the Midwest. Love that wooden button; it's the perfect touch!
