patchwork September, 2015

patchwork september

September, what a beauty you have been. Misty, dewy mornings, days of bright sunshine, clear-skied evenings, with drifting bonfire smoke. Sloes, apples, blackberries, elderberries and plums: the bounty of the trees and of the hedgerows. Bunches of bright dahlias, skeletal brown seed heads, rich loam from the garden. The mystery of the pine forest, the lure of the ocean. A muted, dusky palette of blues and greens, browns and golds. September has brought all that is lovely about the early days of autumn.

As ever, I’ve been looking back- to last September’s patchwork – and to the month ahead, with a Pinterest board for October.

  • I just love your monthly patchwork posts…the way you describe the beauty of each month makes me want to jump right into your life. September is such a lovely month…it’s earthy and rich and if any month signals a chance it’s September.

    Enjoy the last days of it. ♥

  • As always, so lovely. September has always been a month that I want to get over as quickly as possible, it’s still quite hot here in Idaho and I just want my favorite month, October to hurry up and get here! Then I look at this beautiful patchwork and am reminded of the beauty that September holds. Next year, I will try to be more patient when September arrives :o).

    Take care.
