Already?!?!?!!!!

Hi there Blogland neighbors! Neighbor Mary Anne reporting live here from Moonbeams headquarters (that would be the computer sitting on the desk in my kitchen). Anyhow, being your friend and neighbor, I feel it's my duty to inform you that (cue theme from "Jaws").......



.......FALL is right around the corner!!!! YEP! I took this picture yesterday afternoon (as in AUGUST 8th !) I couldn't believe it but there it was .... a green leaf turned RED and already fallen from the tree!!!! I LOVE fall, but isn't this a bit PREMATURE?!?!?!?!!!!! .....and, actually , the weather this weekend is feeling a bit fall-like .... I'm even sitting here with my ratty cardigan sweater on... it was in the 50's this morning ! But, sure as I'm bound to start another new quilt project today before finishing any of the other ones, it will be STINKING hot and humid again when school starts in 2 weeks ... always happens!!

Well, as much as I'd like to make another cup of tea and sit and visit with you all a little longer, I've basically piddled away the majority of my morning visiting Blogland already while ignoring my usual Saturday chores ..... which will probably get ignored a little more because, like I said, I've got a bee in my bonnet the past few days that's shaping up to be a quilt idea (maybe) that , so far is scribbled onto the edge of a piece of paper from work and it's bugging me to get it off that edge of a piece of paper and into/onto a piece of fabric .....(besides, I can't hand in that progress note with that doodle on the edge of it ... the hospital I work for may look down on that .... they're such a bunch of party poopers!)

Be back soon!
Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)

I can't wait until fall! I'm itching to work on a quilt, it's been too, too hot in Alabama to mess with fabric, but I'm afraid it will be a month or maybe two before it will cool down to suit me!

I cannot wait for fall. I love it. I love sweaters and jeans and just the smell of fall. Perhaps that leaf just wanted to escape from the tree though? Hmm. I will look for signs. I have worn jeans all week and been quite comfortable.

That looks like a red mitten! I love autumn. In fact, I love to see every season come and I love to see them go. It always seems like my favorite season is the one coming up.

I can not tell a lie, seeing that leaf makes my heart pitter patter. I love fall. I hope you enjoy the last days of summer.

It already feels like fall where I live, and it's so unusual. It is usually really hot here, but it's been in the lower 80's during the day and the 50's at night.

I loved living in PA because I could actually see the changes in the seasons. It's so beautiful there in every season. I miss it.

Fall already!? Ugh! We're still dodging floaties in the yard that seem to fly out of the pool all day long.

And cookin' up a new quilt? Yum. Looking forward to seeing your design. And along with your sense of humor, I'm sure it will keep us in stitches...ya. I know. That was bad.
