Tomorrow September Arrives

Time just flies by---way too fast. My favorite time of year is about here. I love the autumn with the beautiful colors and the cooler days it brings. If I could choose just one month to have all the time, it would be October.

I started playing with some of my batiks today. This is what I am coming up with. Love the colors and will see how far I go with them. I sewed the circles to lightweight fusible interfacing so that the fusible side is on the outside after I cut the slit and turn it. That way, I can iron it to the background square. Doesn't seem as stiff as the lightweight fusible web and gives a finished edge for invisible machine applique or a decorative buttonhole stitch in pretty colors. I think I like it.
