Definitive sign of fall


Each year the girls clog at our area's fall festival. 


The dancing.  The food.  The crafts.  The music. 


These things are a definitive sign of fall in our neck of the woods.  And this family looks forward to it much like an anticipated sequel to a favorite book. 


It means that we can put away the flip flops and dig out the sweatshirts. Request hot chocolate at the breakfast table and a campfire in the evening. See our yard fill up with leaves and bid adieu to the hummingbirds.




Quilts from the festival barn rafters + girls on the clogging stage = fall.

At last.

Dana - I will be at the festival on Saturday. I have been a long time reader of yours and will be hooking up with Tipper from the Blind Pig and the Acorn blog. What time are your girls performing?

Sounds wonderful. Where I live we have very few signs of fall. It's still reaching 100 or close to it most days. I'm ready for fall. Using my fall candles and hoping for cooler weather soon.

You certainly have made a wonderful life for you and yours :0).
I hope you make another clogging video for us this year so we can see the girls huge smiles!
(I had to look back at the last time you locked your family out of the car to see them dancing.....Razor has the biggest smile on his face!)

Happy sewing
