It happened a couple weeks ago. Sitting on my porch, drinking my first cup of coffee for the day, carried there by a breeze chilly enough to have me wearing a sweatshirt in August, a yellow leaf fell at my feet. It happened again yesterday while mowing: I ran over the first walnut of the season. Autumn is arriving early for Missouri after an uncharacteristically cool summer. I, for one, welcome our autumnal overlords.
Fall is the start of prime crafting season! Cooler weather means more time in my craft studio, but it also means time to start thinking about… dare I say it?
I know, I know, I know, but we’re crafters! We must face the truth. If you haven’t already started thinking about what you’re making loved ones, now’s the time to start! For the next couple months, we’ll be bringing you a free project every week to jump-start your creativity and gift stockpile. This week, we’re getting organized with our to-do list. Click on the link to download our Holiday Gift List and fill yours out, at least with who all you’ll be giving a gift to this year.
We’re also starting a new thing over on our Instagram. We’ll be going live every Wednesday night at 7pm central time crafting, listening to music, and answering your questions. So be sure to follow and join us for a chill little weekly craft party!
And last but not least, if you’re at Fall Paducah QuiltWeek September 13-17, come say hi to me in the AQS booth! I’ll be the cute lil’ redhead working register.
