It's the end of summer 2012. Time to put away the white pants and shoes, dig out the woolens (except for us allergic types), and buckle down to studies (or work for us contracted souls). I took Friday all for myself and wandered across town for the monthly meeting of the East Cobb Quilter's Guild.

I stopped at the park near the water to stretch my legs and let my little owls enjoy the dappled light and rush of the water. I didn't go for a walk though; there were too many men sitting in their cars. It was a little creepy.
(Insert floral photos here to lighten the mood.)The seeds I thought I started too late are providing me with new blooms daily. Above are the moonflowers. I love them.
The cosmos are putting out lots of hearty color.
And when I parted the zinnias and cosmos I found my first morning glory blossom!
(and now resume chatter about Friday)Speaking of flowers (nice transition tee hee), I saw this beautiful lilac cardigan in the JJill catalog and I knew I'd seen a similar flower, so I looked at my stash of Brannock & Patek Lilac Hill line, and there it was! I just had to have the sweater, so, also on Friday, I found myself near The Forum in Duluth and popped into the JJill shop. Sorry. I have to say it was not so pretty in person. The Brannock & Patek fabric is way more beautiful! (I liked the buttons on the sweater, just not $100 worth of like.)
Mr. Joe (Joseph James Vanzetti a.k.a Joey or JJ) keeps working on getting out of the house. He has found a quiet (no yapping Maltese) place under the shrubs in the front yard. I don't let him stay out though; he has to come in when I do.
(And I have to do SOMETHING with fabric!)
My darling new daughter-in-law asked me to teach her how to crochet, since she needs something to do while she and Adam are running around. I found a regular crochet hook and some yarn for her and did my best to show her how after I'd reviewed a YouTube video. (I am not a crochet-person even though I've made a couple of rugs using the technique; I only know the basics.)
