Oh my, how time flies...

I cannot believe I have let a whole month slip by!  Well, 'slip' may not be the best way to put it, we've been keeping ourselves busy around here at the Trio Farm.  And I've finally spent a little time in my new sewing studio (emphasis on a little).

I managed to get my fourth Swoon block done.  Eventually they will all go into a queen sized quilt for our master bedroom... eventually.  I'm enjoying taking my time with these-- using them as a break from other projects, or in the case of this one, a way to dip my toes back into sewing after a long break.  

At first I wasn't so sure about the brown for the star, but Mr. Trio liked it from the start, and I find it's growing on me.

As for other things going on around here... 
This little guy (a beautiful Yellow Warbler) flew into our window one morning last week-- poor guy.  I'm thrilled to say there were no lasting injuries, he was just stunned out of his wits.  He hung out on our porch for about 15 minutes while I got to photograph him and enjoy his beauty up-close, and then he took off again.   

While I have been an early riser out of necessity for a few years (and now out of habit), it's only been since moving here to Trio Farm that I have begun to truly love the early morning.  It's a magical time of day here-- dare I say, ethereal.
And now these foggy mornings are turning cool and crisp-- autumn is in the air.  My favorite time of year.  The apples here are turning red and hanging heavy, and a some of the leaves are beginning to turn.

I'm so excited for our first fall back East, and all the colors that go along with it!
And with a new season comes the need for a new table runner.  Right?!?  Yes, I do think so.


  1. I think I have fallen in love with the paintbox fabric. I love the way you are using it. Also love the little warbler...

  2. can't wait to see that tablerunner!

  3. I love where you're heading with the table runner.
