This year, summer has been kind of reluctant to leave New England . . .
Sir Beads and I are immersed in the usual end-of-summer chores:
*Removing fans and air conditioners…
*Adjusting storm windows..
*Adding fluffy blankets to the bed…
And reacquainting ourselves with the delights of the fall season:
*Baking! (Or as I like to call it, “reclaiming the oven now that a hot kitchen feels cozy instead of miserable.”)
*Leaf peeping! (It appears to be a banner year for foliage, here.)
*Fall decorating! (Not as much as we used to – but I still love pumpkins, pilgrims, and an autumn-y front door.)
*Choosing yarn! (for projects to crochet during winter evenings).
As a beader, I love to design jewelry for every season, and right now our bead shop is chock full of fall-themed beads and findings!
Here are just a few:
How is Fall going in your neck of the woods?
I’d love to hear your thoughts!
