enjoying summer's end

We have had some hot days lately but autumn is in the air ~ cooler in the morning and darker~so hard to get out of bed this morning when it was still pitch black outside. The plants in the garden are dwindling. Today I picked some more tomatoes for canning...maybe tomorrow.
I cut the pumpkins and placed them on some straw between the sunflowers and the strawberry plants.
Also harvested the gourds ~the ornaments of the garden~ not a lot of them, but enough for a little bit of autumn decorating. I gave them a good showering off and left them on the chair to dry.
Still working on some dishcloths and experimenting with different stitches, colors, and edgings. For those of you who asked, I will let you know when I add some to the shop.

Hope your day was good as well!

  1. Those are the most beautiful fall pictures! I would love to someday be able to grow food and not just flowers.

    I also love your dishclothes. Have you ever crocheted any? My daughter and I just bought a pattern. She can knit, but I can't. We can both crochet so we thought it would be fun to do together. Yours are lovely. Also, thank you for sharing which thread you use.

  23. Hello, I just wanted to thank you. I'm going to school today(at the moment we're having a twenty minutes off before the next class), I've been busy and tired lately, so I was just searching a place to rest and to find peace somewhere. I found it here. Thank you. =)
