Oh, at long last we've had some cooler weather. Fall comes to mind, school shopping, raking leaves, picking apples, all those cliched activities. It's been many years since I raked a leaf, picked an apple or sent a child off to class, but I still feel that urge to nest....and get ready for the start of a new season..
Really a new year, my internal creative calendar starts with September. It's the whole wool thing, I think....spinning,sewing knitting,felting, it all really begins in earnest as the weather cools.
So what am I planning for the cooler season? I need to sew some mittens to sell. Dye some handspun.Button jewelry.Get started on some secret Christmas gifts. Freeform embroidery. Make a few Santas. Finish an afghan. Collage. Clean my studio room. (REALLY THAT SHOULD BE FIRST ON THE LIST) Bind a few journals. Wash a fleece. Felt some slippers....
But, alas, I just heard the weather forecast....hot and humid tomorrow. hmmmm..
