Especially on a day like today when the weather is cool, humidity free (good hair day!), and the sky is such a gorgeous blue creating the perfect backdrop for the green and colorful leaves. September was a warm month this year, and the trees haven't begun to change yet in my part of the state.

October is also my birthday month, not that I'm so excited about that anymore after turning 39 (a few years ago). On my birthday this year, though, I'm flying out to Houston to go to the International Quilt Festival! I've been wanting to go for a few years but haven't been able to get away. This year, all is well, the plane fare is reasonable, and a college friend invited me to stay with her. I'm pretty excited to take a little trip, visit, see all the fabrics and designers we read about, and hopefully meet up with a few of my blog friends. Please let me know if you are going to be there, too. Maybe we can meet up.
Didn't this turn out darling? When my friend saw the owl applique I put on an apron a couple of months ago, she called and requested one appliqued on a top for her daughter. Since I had to hand it over right as I finished up the hand sewing this morning, I just got a couple of not so great photos. I'm anxious to see pictures of the little one dressed up in it with a turtleneck and jeans.
