Summer is Fading.

Summer has indeed faded and Autumn and Winter are on their way.
Our little patio, where we sit and have coffee gets very little sun now, and I have brought some of the plants in for the winter. Some will have to brave it, and as the patio is quite sheltered, hopefully will make it through.

The last of the summer harvest has also been brought in, to ripen up on the kitchen window sill.

You know summer has gone when you have to put tomatoes on your shopping list. :0)

We have the last guests for the season in our holiday cottage, and when they leave we shut it up and go off on our own vacation. To renew our energies to start the winter clean, ready for next season..

The October blocks are done for the Siblings Together quilt and have been posted off to the Mama of the month Jenny.  This quilt is going to look great and she put a link up that some of you might like
It's a lovely Quilt and is now on my To-Do List..

I am the Mama for November, and as we will be away, I am in the process of writing the details up, which my good friend will post for me at the end of this month to each of the girls.

The background fabric is a 10 1/2 inch square. I am hoping they will like a little Appliqué, it is a very simple block, which I am hoping will make a child very happy.
 I always try and make my owls look cross-eyed as they look so cute..

Print out on A4 paper

Now to finish writing up the details, and then Lists for going away..

Keep safe and keep stitching..................Doti...
