A Fall Note from Marcia

“The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August, and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty who has seen one season too many… September is dressing herself in showy dahlias and splendid marigolds and starry zinnias. October, the extravagant sister, has ordered an immense amount of the most gorgeous forest tapestry for her grand reception.”

~Oliver Wendell Holmes (1809–1894), Autumn, 1868

 

What a wonderful synopsis of the season we are in. I love fall, and while I truly enjoy all of the seasons here in the mid-west, year after year fall seems to be my favorite. Cool and crispy weather with a touch of frost, nature’s beauty as leaves change colors all around. Sweater weather, pumpkins, sweet potatoes & squash, corn & soybean harvest,  raking leaves, cuddling under warm quilts, sunflowers, retreats, crunchy apples, popcorn, the smell of wood fire, new backpacks, clothes and shoes as the children/grandchildren get ready for another school year.   Back to school… And of course, back to sewing.

Best of all is the season of Thanksgiving; counting up our many blessings. Such a wonderful time as the holidays are fast approaching and year’s end is so close.  Looking back on the year, memories, family events, family vacations, your accomplishments, and even the painful things that you may have survived (or are still in the process), as well as looking forward to what the future may hold.  Nostalgia and moving forward all rolled together.

 

The entire staff at Pine Needles want to take this time to express our sincere gratitude to each and every one of you.  It is entirely because of YOU that we are able to be here. For that we are so thankful and are ready to serve you for years to come.  We celebrate YOU! 

 

We all know that this year has been kind of crazy in many ways. Quilting and sewing are comforting, safe, and rewarding.  You can “escape” for a time and enter a happy place all of your own.  You are in charge, you get to use your creative mind and hands.  You get to choose the colors, the project, the thread, the size, and the timeframe.  You can breathe out some of the daily stress and frustrations and breathe in your own sense of peace and tranquility through creativity. 

 

We have all the tools you might need on your sewing/quilting/embroidery journey.  A great slate of new classes and opportunities for fellowship and friendships with those that are just as passionate about your craft as you are, a plethora of new fabrics, books and patterns.  Come on in, create with us and totally enjoy your journey.

 

Fall has arrived in all its glory and YOU are front and center!
