It was not nice knowing you.
But thanks for the abundant corn you gave us...
Last night's farewell to summer dinner.
"Mexican Superbowl" from Kemi's Raw Kitchen dvd...
Delicious doesn't adequately describe it.
So, I woke this morning and it was autumn.
The idea of that just makes me smile.
But the truth of the matter is that here in the tropics it will be at least another 6 weeks before this dratted heat subsides and an actual hint of autumn will fill the air.
And yet - summer is officially over and that pleases me no end because being on the way out of summer is sooooo much better than being on the way in!
Because I love to celebrate my favourite season of the year, for the rest of March you can download an older design of mine HERE in my shop for free!
...the autumn tree...
This wall hanging now lives over in the USA with my sweet friend Nancy Jo.
It's the perfect project for scrap threads, and scrap fabrics (remember that 2014 is your stash fabric's "Moment to Shine") and apart from hand stitching the words 'autumn falling' the rest of it is made with your sewing machine...
I rarely do machine applique because I love to blanket stitch applique on my designs, but the raw edging on this was just right for the look I was after at the time.
This took me only a long afternoon to make, so if you have the day free perhaps you can stitch it yourself and celebrate autumn's arrival in the southern hemisphere with me?
