Good Morning

Good Morning to all of you!

It is a beautiful lovely day here in Vermont. Sunny, clear, crisp and the 1st day of Fall!

I hate to see the summer gone, I love being able to go outside without a sweater or jacket and without having to think what the temperature is, just hot, no worries. Now it's a little chilly and we all need a sweater or hoodie at least for a few hours. BUT you know WHAT it is lovely. IT's invigorating, happy, colorful, and the smell is fall like. Makes me think of baking and hiking through crispy leaves, the sounds of fall are so unique. I hear the geese flying south in their "V" and it makes me know it's time to bundle up. It makes me want to get my sweaters out and my yarn and needles clicking!
SO Fall is Spendid and not to be dreaded......(now long winters are different but lets not go there.)

I think we all need to make an apple crisp or pie. We can pick our own apples at a nearby orchard, get them at the farmers market (where I will get mine on Saturday), food store or roadside stand. Nothing like a crunchy apple and a weekend walk with friends, family, dog or just alone. Jack is always my buddy and Hb on weekends. How 'bout a carmel apple or candy red apple, love 'em all!  Boy, Fall is sounding great, don't you think? How about a crackling fire and a glass of wine or hot apple cider, some music or a good movie. Sign me up, I think I can be ready for Fall. What do you think??

I have been up to Bunting making. I have sold two in my Etsy shop and had to add a few more. I have been having fun with fabrics and my trusty sewing machine. I have a newish Viking Husqvarna Sapphire 830 and I just love it. I know I don't use it to its capacity but that's Ok; Maybe someday.

                                                                 Unisex Baby Bunting

                                                                 Baby Girl Bunting

Anyone who has made Buntings knows how fun they are and addictive to make!! I make tiny ones the flags measure 3.5" X 4", I think just perfect for a baby or toddler.
You can see more pictures in my Etsy shop if you care to. etsy.com/shop/robinsnest

I'm off to household jobs and hopefully some sewing. I wish you all a wonderful day and weekend. Hope the weather is pleasant wherever you live and you have sunny happy times!

Thank as always for visiting I love your company and warm hearts.




  1. Good morning Robin! Happy Fall indeed! I wish we had a true Fall, like you Easterners do. It sounds so lovely!
    How is your dear Mom? I hope she is well.
    Loved your comment on my blog.
    Have a great day...oh, love your bunting!!!

  2. I do love your description of fall or autumn as we know it. You do make it sound good. Do you know I've just finished eating a toffee apple, one of my very favourite things at this time of year. :)
    Your bunting is so pretty Robin! :)
    Hope things are ok with your Mum.
    Ha ve a lovely weekend,

  3. I too love autumn Robin (us Brits always smile when we see it called fall). It's much chillier here too but as you say so much to look forward to. Such pretty bunting you have made! Have a lovely weekend,

  4. Hi Robin, happy fall to you too! There is a definite chill in the air over here and the leaves are starting to change too. We have also had a couple of night frosts, definitely jumper weather now! I love autumn though and do envy you the beautiful fall colours which you get in Vermont.

  5. I adore your buntings! Say, if you ever make one in bright colors that says "Happy Birthday" - let me know. I'd love one like that to hang up for each birthday party. I'm getting into the fall thing too.
    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  6. Happy Fall, dear Robin! What a lovely post filled with autumn delights :) Your new bunting looks so pretty. I have the apples ready to make apple crumble tomorrow for the first time this autumn :)
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. Lovely fall to you too, dear Robin! Your posts always make me smile, and that's just precious. Happy bunting!
