September Greetings!

 

"Departing summer hath assumed
An aspect tenderly illumed,
The gentlest look of spring;
That calls from yonder leafy shade
Unfaded, yet prepared to fade,
A timely carolling."

~ William Wordsworth, “September” ~

September Joys…

 Ribbons of fog that float over the fields just before sunrise...

Dew strung like jewels on bended grasses...

The muted color of crabapples on the rusty apple trees...

Japanese lanterns mingling with purple catmint in the garden...

The rustle of tall grass drying in the field... 

Warm afternoons and deliciously cool evenings...

Pumpkin cornbread candles...

Dried gourds piled in an old bowl...

Warm, homemade apple cider donuts...

A sweater to ward off the evening’s chill...

The slow chirr of the September cricket...

A buttermilk moon in the velvety night sky...

Farewell, August ~ old girl!  Welcome, lovely September!

 

"Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn."

Early Work Mercantile

 Take a peek at my Early Work Mercantile page where I’ve listed four tiny treasures to celebrate our annual Harvest Moon Gathering! 

Another New Pattern!

 

A festive new cross stitch pattern, “Autumn Blessings” celebrates everything we love about this time of year ~ apples, cider, witches, burnished leaves, gourds and jacks.  The three little cushions are attached to a braided calico garland.  They work up quickly and would make great pinkeeps, too!  “Autumn Blessings” is available in mailed and e-pattern (instant download) format.  Links can be found below.

Until next month, my friends, I wish you all the blessings this lovely month has to offer!
