Goodness me – it does feel autumnal outside. We’ve had two days of intermittent rain and there’s been no more sitting in the garden sewing for me. Still, perhaps it’s just as well as it does mean I haven’t been tempted away from my laptop and have just finished uploading the September magazine ready for publication on Thursday. This issue reflects the time of year with features on Bringing the Harvest Home and wrapping up summer in your garden, while Debbie makes the most of the seasonal bounty with some delicious recipes – I can particularly recommend her Bakewell tarts – yum! Several of the patterns have an autumn feel – and I think my special favourite may be the little fox cushion. If you’d like to stitch the Autumn Joy hoop but feel a bit worried about transferring the design onto chocolate brown fabric, then worry no more as pre printed panels will be available in the Bustle & Sew store following publication day. There’s even a version that ends with the word “Fall” rather than Autumn for US stitchers.

I am looking forward to the Sept. issue, it has some very appealing designs – as always. Autumn is coming early here in Austin, TX, too, with our September rains already appearing in mid-August. But we have such long summers, it is nice for it to cool down early!
