Subtle Signs of Autumn in Austin Texas

Signs of AutumnFall has arrived, but the changes are far more subtle than in more northern locations.

The days are still sunny and warm, with temperatures in the 80's and sometimes higher, but the nights are cooler and the humidity has, for the most part, moved on.

Although things are still really quite green, an occasional tree, like this one shows a little color.

The job market feels like it is picking up after summer and I keep hearing from recruiters in a way that finally feels like a normal job search. I continue to be hopeful that my move to Austin was the right thing to do.

I want to pull my yarn stash out of storage and knit things.  I want to pull out some quilting UFO's and unquilted tops and finish and use them.

I am planning to join Heidi and more than a hundred of her friends tonight for the October Friday Night Sew-in.  I will likely work on some scrappy liberated stars for the Block Lotto or play catch-up with Bonnie's hand-pieced blocks–she recently posted October.  Either way, it feels great to get back to doing creative things.

I'm glad you are going to do some creative things.
Our leaves have not turned around here, but some big ones are falling off the trees.
How about showing us your new abode?

It's hard to be creative when you don't have the energy so glad to hear life is improving for you.

Are you coming to Houston for the show?

That sounds like a great way to spend a Friday night. Have a great time.

I'm glad to hear that the job search is feeling more encouraging. While many feel fall is a season's of endings, I'm always energized by the cooler weather and beautiful sights. I hope it is an energizing season for you. Best wishes, Kathie L in Allentown

I found you through the FNSI. I loved spending my Friday night embroidering or trying to anyway. Love your blog!
