It's Autumn!

Autumn marks the transition from summer into winter, when the arrival of night becomes noticeably earlier. I'm making all the travel plans for the rest of the year, already dreaming for my winter get-a-way (not sure there will be one this year).

I put the winter quilt on the bed this morning. The story is, after 10 years of sleeping quilt happily under a fat polyester comforter, I decided that I should make us a quilt. So I did, thought we would freeze the first winter. The cotton batt just wasn't warm enough. So I made another quilt, with a cotton batt. Two quilts made it to heavy to turn over. The new 'winter' quilt has a lovely wool batt in it and it's just perfect!
