Seasonally Confused.

I am.
Seasonally confused.
Technically it is still summer. It's 85 degrees and beautiful most days.
Why would I be confused?
Well it's getting a bit cooler in the night here in Ohio and that smell of fall is in the air....even for a brief moment early in the day.
My mind keeps wondering to orange, red, yellow and black.
Leaves, pumpkins, and spiced desserts.

Last week when I attended the book signing at J'Ellen's House of Fabrics I was terribly confused.
I wanted Sophie by Chez Moi....
Trick or Treat by Deb Strain....

Summer House by Lily Asbury.....

Farmyard: Sentimental Studios......
and Oops a Daisy.

p.s. for inquiring minds....I didn't break the bank at J'Ellen's. She was having a HUGE sale. $20 for jelly rolls, $5 charm packs....you get the idea.
It was HUGE and I had a gift certificate from a really great friend. I was pleased as punch.

Anyhow do you see the issue?
Summer,
no Fall,
 summer, Fall, summer....ACK! I am mixed up.
Do you know the feeling?

What to start first? what will I make? I have a gazillion patterns and MY own and still I'm not sure.
First on my list is some sort of fallish/Halloween pillow cover.
I have a pillow form that had a 4th of July cover....now it's naked so I really need to start there first.
Oh shucks, I just remembered the Applecore tutorial....guess I will start there and the pillow will be second on the list.

Love all the great buys you got, even if you are seasonally confused. I was in Ohio for my Dads birthday, but left August 9th. May have to check out J'Ellen's House of Fabrics next summer.

I live in Miami, so we're always seasonally confused. What is this fall you're talking about? Winter? It's just hot then hotter here. Great shopping btw-we're all jealous, no happy for you! :)

Oh I do miss late summer/fall in NE Ohio... and yes, even the winter snows.

Does JEllen place orders through her website? I looked, but didn't see anything.

take care!

Tried to get by JEllens in July while we were in OH visiting family, but never worked out. Love your room might have to use some of your ideas, but we don't have an Ikea. Saw one in OH on our way home (to Tennessee) but we had no space in the car so no reason to stop if I couldn't buy something. Is there one in the Cleveland area?

The weather sounds great. Here it is just HOT from the time we wake up until the time we go to bed. Love all of your fabrics. I went to a great sale as well this morning. All the fabrics where 50% off you can not bet that. Bought a couple of backs.
Hugs
