Autumn? its like waiting for a train.

I can smell a hint of Autumn in the air can you?

Its like waiting for a train….

It fills me with a sense of sadness that the summer is fading and a sense of excitement that comes with the changing of the seasons.

A time for new uniform purchases, a time for enjoying the fading light in the evenings, a time for making the most of every moment with loved ones, before the summer holidays are over.

Days out together are precious, memories, photos, recording it all before they get too big.

Time moves on so fast these days.

and in between……… there is always sewing

a newly pieced together lacy curtain, from very old pieces of lace and I added some cheery bias binding with cherries on….. 

 and more crochet ….

 and completed projects….

and plans, plans,plans…

Life is good, and I count my blessings.

When that train arrives I am going to get on board and stick my head out the window, so the wind can blow through my hair!!….

    Ah yes, I love the changing of the seasons. The blanket's already come out for the evenings and I'm chilly today! Actually quite a pleasant feeling after roasting so much over the summer 😉 And I have an autumn birthday too 🙂

    The weather is weird. Maybe it's just me not wanting the summer to be over. It shouldn't be over yet – it's too early. But the autumn is definitely creeping up on us. I love autumn too – don't get me wrong. You've been very busy craft- wise. Lovely curtain and crochet.

    Lovely post Daisy, I can identify with your feelings and it does certainly smell like Autumn already some days, a reminder of what's to come.
    Love the curtains, great idea!
    Enjoy these last few weeks of the holidays Daisy.
