a day this good...

...needs to be documented.

The kids and I went on a walk today...

...I took lots of photos...
(the skies are brilliant blue here, too, Susan.)

...I love everything about fall....

...we enjoyed the beautiful weather...

...and collected a stroller basket full of leaves and pine cones.

Now, I need to figure out how to knit (in the round) and felt a bowl to hold the pine cones. I'm wondering what to do with all my pressed leaves. (this is the second batch)

The kids and I also got to have lunch with my husband.
I got some sewing time in.
I played with the kids.
It's been a good day.

Glad you had a good day, though I have to say that the rainy days end up with things for me to laugh at. It was a beautiful day here...so we had a fire drill and then I helped with AWANA trash pick up.

How could you have a bad day with a sky that blue? Our leaves aren't quite falling yet, but I am looking forward to collecting some soon!

Autumn days with clear blue skies are the best! Unfortunately they are most of the times grey and cloudy.

What a great day! Felted bowls are fun. It's a great idea to make one for your new collection.

Wow, you guys have lost a leaves already. We are still in the thick of summer here.

Since you are a quilter, you could make a patchwork bowl. I made a fabric bowl in the spring, I am pretty sure I just googled fabric bowl and found easy directions. (Although you might be able to work it out on your own without the pattern, I don't remember it being crazy hard.)

What beautiful pictures. We are just now starting to get a hint of color in our leaves and are just seeing the first ones fall. I love this time of year!

Happy you are able to enjoy the fall days with the kids AND get some sewing in.

Lunch with dad is always good :)

Sounds like a great day. We have been collecting conkers by the bucketload and threading them onto strings. Love this time of year!

I could probably help you if you'd be willing to crochet in the round. That works for felting too.

Wow - such gorgeous photos. Looks like you had the perfect fall day. It also looks like you took our blue skies - it's been gray and rainy here for days now. Enjoy them!
And about knitting in the round? I love it - you're gonna fly on round needles, I just know it.

Sounds perfect! We need to savor these kinds of days more, don't we. Thanks for the reminder!!

I love nice, brisk autumn days. The sky is beautiful. I think we are expecting 90+ degree weather tomorrow. I want cool.

Melissa said...

sounds like a perfect day. i love those clear and bright autumn skies. with your parcel tray full of leaves, you (or the kids) could make a collage or mobile, maybe?
