Autumnal Charm

Autumn Song by Katherine Mansfield
Now's the time when children's noses
All become as red as roses
And the colour of their faces
Makes me think of orchard places
Where the juicy apples grow,
And tomatoes in a row.

And to-day the hardened sinner
Never could be late for dinner,
But will jump up to the table
Just as soon as he is able,
Ask for three times hot roast mutton--
Oh! the shocking little glutton.

Come then, find your ball and racket,
Pop into your winter jacket,
With the lovely bear-skin lining.
While the sun is brightly shining,
Let us run and play together
And just love the autumn weather.
A quick post today, as I'm busy writing an article for the next issue of Creative Connections magazine.  Whilst snapping away at Christmas goodies today, I couldn't resist taking a photo of these beautiful pumpkins sitting on the porch of my in-laws country cabin.  And isn't the appliqued leaf wonderful?  It's just one of a whole host of them (each in a different glorious autumnal fabric) that Elaine is currently working on.  I can't wait to see the finished quilt - it's going to be another master-piece!
