It’s autumn and the sumacs have rushed ahead,
to change their dress to one of red.
The dogwoods from them, take their cue,
and give their leaves a rosy hue.
A rather melancholy fellow,
the ginkgo changes his leaves to yellow.
The oaks hold off for as long as they can,
but soon their leaves are burnt orange and tan.
The beeches prefer a little bling,
and soon their leaves will be silvery things.
A feast for the eyes are the colors of autumn,
with a palette that ranges from golden to plum.
I love to take in her splendid beauty;
there’s nothing quite like autumn leaves on a tree.

What a fun week! We were going, going, going and I'm spent! LOL! Friday was filled with all sorts of birthday fun including a little fabric play:
My baby sister knows me so well!! Did you notice the fun buttons?? I also finished up Dot for Everley . . .
Though I don't have a picture of the two of them together yet. Soon, though! I also was finally able to give my youngest nephew, Fowler, his cuddly Dr. Seuss minky quilt . . .
What do you think? I think he liked it!
I'd already counted the Seuss quilt and Dot fabrics out, so all I have to report this week is my birthday present . . .
A modest gain of 4.5 yards -- but so pretty! (You may or may not notice that my total this week is only up by 2.5 instead of 4.5 yards. I miscalculated last week.) Well worth it! Linking up to the stash report post at Patchwork Times.
My Slow Sunday Stitching will be . . .
Yes. It looks *exactly* the same as it did this time last week. That's how much family fun we had last week!! I will look forward to some down time later this afternoon!
Happy Sunday! :)
