"The days go so slow but the years, they go too fast."
Hi! Today is the last day of September. How come March and April don't fly by like these late summer, early Fall months do?
I have all my Dotty 365 blocks finished for the month, hooray! September 30 block is block 330 only 35 [36, it's Leap Year// 50 to even the rows] more to go! The year has gone too fast.
I continue to enjoy this project, I find it relaxing, yet interesting. I'm excited now to see the final textile that will result from my year's efforts. This month I tried to use darker toned Dot fabrics to increase the graphic impact and contrast in my Dots.
Morning glories, Monarch butterfly migration...
Full moon and a medical appointment day.
A sad day, a beach day...
Hydrangeas, P2 flowers, shells....
P2, first day of School, Kitties visited, Cape Cod blueberry memories...
a Mo day or two...and more Cape Cod days, butterflies on the late roses.
But in the fall they form larger flocks of perhaps eight or ten birds. Maybe they are the parents and babies from summer? In late September they begin their practice flights, round and round the beach. Tomorrow they will stll be here, stalking small somethings yummy along the tideline. But Sunday they will be gone. Just as they arrive always on St Patrick's Day, they leave for their winter homes on October 2nd. I've lived here many years. Some things never change....Have you ever kept a birding journal or nature journal?
PS Finding ''madders'', red-brown prints, once created by a vegetable dye called madder...for Lori's new sewalong. So excited, i's again a mystery quilt.
gone to the beach....
