Rain - Glorious Rain!

Its been a nice Sunday afternoon, blessed by glorious rain!  Seems like  months since we saw a nice rain and according to the weatherman, more is on the way.  We can sure use it, so I hope our Weatherman is right this time!
This morning started early with fresh brewed coffee and a peaceful house, meaning I was the only one up at 5:00am.  I colored this fall wreath of oak leaves and acorns.  I adapted the pattern from a design offered Patti R. Anderson of  patchpieces, who so graciously offered it free for personal use or use with your guild.  I plan to use it in a demo to my guild next month and was so pleased to find something with a Fall theme.  I hope to eventually turn this into either a table runner (I had to make three for my demo) or use one of them to make a small wall hanging. 
After visiting with my Dad,  I played around with some English Paper Piecing, making Grandmother's Flower Garden blocks.  I know mine are just tiny flowers, but they have room to grow.  These are so much fun!  I have been working on my klosjes as well, and finished up 8 of them this weekend.    

Hope you have all had a lovely day,

Happy stitchin'

It's amazing the different feelings that rain can give us. In times of plenty (or too much)it can be almost depressing, but after not having any for awhile it is cause for celebration and a cozy feeling. Looks like you are working on some great projects.

I'm hoping we get some rain too to cool things off...I'm really looking forward to crisp fall weather even though it is short for us.

Wasn't the rain just wonderful!? We finally have the a/c off and the windows open. Just listening to the rain is so peaceful!

We've had a couple of days of no rain and it is nice to have the sun shinning...it's not too hot.

Oh I love cloudy rainy days...don't know why...they inspire me!
Your fall leaves and acorns look really good. I've been doing some hexies too!!

Rain! Please send some to us -- we really need it. The leaves all seem to be dropping early because the trees are so thirsty. I don't think this bodes well for pretty fall color this year.

Your little hexi flowers look beautiful!

If you like rain, you should have been in here this summer, it seems like all it did was rain.

I am in love with that oak leaf wreath, it will make a stunning runner! We so desperately needed the rain here, too!
