The days here in Connecticut are still warm but the nights have cooled. We can still hear the peepers but the night time rhythm of the cicadas has slowed as the temperatures have dropped. Afternoon light has taken on a golden hue. The figs have turned pink on their way to burgundy red. Tomatoes are ripening more slowly and they are warm gold and sweet as honey. I'm working on my first wool applique piece called "Be Thankful" designed by Little Bits by Joan. My son, daughter-in-law and two of my grandkids are at Disney World in Florida riding out Hurricane Irma. I will be extremely thankful when they're home safe and sound.
