I'm still here...

It's been a while since my last post, and I don't have much excuse except that I've been manically busy trying to juggle 16 million things at once! Feeling slightly overwhelmed by it all this morning, I headed out for a pressure-releasing power walk (read: waddle) and was almost immediately refreshed by the autumnal glory in Ormeau Park.

Obviously, I couldn't resist kicking through the leaves like a little kid!

Somehow it's never really occurred to me before this year how similar autumns are here to those back in New England. Belfast may not have New Hampshire's reputation for fantastic fall foliage, but it's still pretty spectacular! The crisp fresh air combined with the lovely scenery and some child-like romping on my part put things back in perspective and made me crave some of my favourite autumn treats, pumpkin pie chief among them. I just might have to rustle one up this weekend! 

These are the only photos I have to show today, but there'll be a few very soon of my first finish of October (just in time!!) - my charm square baby quilt. I'm waiting - vainly perhaps - for a bright sunny spell to take the photos, but rest assured, I'm delighted with how it turned out, and I'm having a ball thinking up fun names for it! In the meantime, if you haven't already done so, have a look at the great new line up of classes Judith is offering this coming winter. I want to sign up for them all, but I suspect I'm going to have my hands full come January!!
