It's almost Fall!

There are still a few weeks until the official start of Fall but for most of us it starts on September 1st. I love, love, love fall colors.

September is a big month in my family, there are three birthdays, mine, MM's, and my brothers. We'll be celebrating our 44th wedding anniversary and this year I'll celebrate one year of being retired. In a couple of weeks MM and I will be going to the coast for a few days to celebrate.
In other news I've finished hooking and binding my purse. Now I need to attach the straps, lining and closure, I hope to get it completed soon.
A couple of months ago at Wool Club we were given a little zippered pouch as a challenge. We were to decorate it and bring it to Septembers meeting to share.
I chose a purple one and as of last week I hadn't done a thing with it. Wool Club is Sept 11th so I had to get busy.
What to do? What to do? I know I'll decorate it with one of my favorite things:
Can't go wrong with sunflowers. Now all I have to do is stitch around them and add some embellishments. I plan to work on it at our sewing circle today, hopefully I'll get a lot done.
Hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend.
Til next time, Ronda



  1. The sunflowers really pop on the purple background. Sounds like you have lots to celebrate this month. Enjoy!

  2. That's a great color combination. It will be a winner for sure.

    It looks like September is going to be one celebration after another. Happy Celebrating. I love the warm Fall colors too.

  3. I love the idea of everyone getting a zippered pouch to embellish !
    I am sure they will all be so different and lovely.
    Happy Birthday to you !

  4. What a fun project - I love zippered purses so that would be right up my alley! blessings, marlene

  5. Hi Ronda,
    Just wanted to thank you for the last few posts on your blog. Sounds and looks like you and MM are doing great and that makes me glad. The pictures of your trips made me think of the times we all went on road trips. Thanks again.
    Love, your brother
