There’s a gentle breeze coming in from the windows at my house. I can see the leaves dancing in the afternoon light as I sit at my dining room table with Miss L, helping her with today’s homework.

Fall might be my favorite time of year. I love the crisply cool mornings, the leaves changing colors, football games. For me, summer is about going with the flow but fall is projects and new beginnings.

I’m in the midst of preparations for Quilt Market and spending more time at the sewing machine (or computer) than planning or playing. At my doctor’s appointment yesterday, Dr. A gently suggested that I scale back on my commitments. I have a tendency to view downtime as a bad thing (my husband jokes about my inability to relax, even on vacation) but I’m seeing this fall as an opportunity to learn how to better balance things.

    I just completed a project from the LITTLE GIRLS big style book and am overjoyed! I can’t wait to try it on my 3 year old grandaughter – I hope this is the start of many more projects for her
