Fall in Central Texas

Well, fall has finally hit Central Texas, the mornings are beautiful and crisp, although the afternoons are still creeping up into the 80's.  Put's me in the mood for sewing.  It's a beautiful Sunday morning here, the morning glories are beautiful.  Time to open up all the windows in this house and get into the sewing room.   Working on Christmas already.  My husband has opened up a new store in our little town, Texas Tree Creations, he is a chainsaw carver and artist.  Someone mentioned that I should put some of my things in the store, well, I would love to except all of my things right now are Christmas gifts.  If I ever get everything done and have to chance to make up some small things that is a thought of putting some things in there.  Between trying to get the store ready and decorated, and sewing here at home...not enough hours in the day!

And then it's back to work for me tomorrow!  So, trying to squeeze every spare moment I can into sewing....have a great week everyone!

We are having a very nice fall here in Idaho also.  I wish you and your husband much luck on the store and hope that you can get a few things ready to display.  Maybe you could do a few samples and take orders.

I would love to see some samples also.  Maybe design a website or just send some photos.  Nothing like word of mouth (or computor) to get things up and running.  I'm in Illinois and we started with a brisk(temps around 60) Fall, but then it got warm again.  I love this time of year.  Nothing like nature to inspire a quilt.  And I agree, there is never enough time.  I figure I have to live to 250 to get all my planned quilts done.  And I don't know about anyone else, but getting an idea from my head to paper and then fabric takes more time than I wish.  Course I am no designer, I just experiment and tweak as I go along.  Probably not the "best" way but it makes for an interesting journey.  

By the way, anyone have insight on how to keep that fabric organized?  Seems I try to do it by color, than I pull out colors for projects, then I switch colors and prints for projects, and, next thing I know, I have tubs of material with a mix in each one.  Makes for a good treasure hunt when you KNOW you have just the right shade of fabric, but then try to figure out the latest place /project where it has ended up.  There's always an old, new, and future going on in my head and in my stash.
