As in, the fall weather we have been having is delectable. Makes me wonder if summer got the memo earlier in the week to move along. It’s been sunny and in the mid- to upper 70s all week. The evenings aren’t even all that cool, just pleasant. It’s been so nice that I am now watering my front lawn because it is very dry and a little crispy in spots.
Speaking of delectable, check out this torte I did not make:
Say it with me, mmmmmmmmm! A little bit of fall flavor despite the summer-y weather–pumpkin crunch torte. Mmmmmmm. Oh, and I just have to say, I’m glad I’M not turning 40…
Check out these cute acorns though (yes, cake decorating always mystifies me):
Only when I was taking the picture did I realize that the acorns are made from chocolate kisses with icing on top! Can’t get over the culinary cleverness. Easily amused over here.
I’ve been amusing myself with some fusible applique today:
It is a little tricky taking a picture of a 24″ block, I must say.
The pattern is called Long Stem Roses by Julie Popa of Sunflower Hill Designs.
I’ll be using it with some of the new Daisy Chain fabrics by Amy Butler. The flower is made with Kaufman Carolina Chambrays. I’ve used these a lot over the last several months and I really like their feel and their gorgeous colors. The warp and weft are two different colors, similar to Kaffe’s shot cottons.
So, there you have it. The day in an acorn shell.
Speaking of which, anyone want a neighborhood full of adorable chipmunks before I post them on Craigslist??? They’re cute, but, gosh, are they loud when they get their network chattering. And I don’t want to know about all the adorable little tunnels they’ve dug in the yard…
