I love sunflowers! The perfect late summer/early autumn flower.
Following the sun with their flower faces and the perfect golden hue reminding us of the autumn colors yet to come...
This was a rughooking design, but since I don't hook, I translated it to wool applique instead.
I love all the early signs of autumn that you shared!
Cooler, crisper mornings and evenings
animals beginning to store up their winter food
goldenrod and chrysanthemums
apple and pear picking
fallen hickory nuts and acorns
V's of Canadian geese flying north
Back to school
I can feel it! Can you?

Congratulations Debbie, your package is on its way...
I can't believe that a full year of giveaways has gone by... My thought was to do it for a year, but it has been so much fun, I think it will continue. It might not be as regular as it has been, but when I think of something or make a little special something, there will be more... stay tuned!
"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
