although we are just a few days into october, the nights are beginning to feel a little wintry. so we've been building lovely little fires in our living room fireplace. the cats sprawl in front and edgar does his best to get his favorite spot on the sofa. our neighborhood soaks up the sweet musky crabapple wood smoke that crawls out the chimney and i don't know if i prefer being inside with the warmth of the flames or out in the crisp smoky fall air. the fire makes even a mundane evening watching football or our favorite hbo shows feel a bit more special. i'm not ready for the full onslaught of winter but i think i can welcome the coziness of fall.
i feel like quilts are alive. they reflect all the little joys that make life special. they emanate love and warmth. the quilts i make blend a grandmother's ideals with a fresh youthful flair. there is a nostalgia for seasons past combined with hopefulness for a bright full future. you can find me online at www.chasinglightningbugs.com
