Oh my, the first day of September -- Fall cannot be far away.  Indeed, I found these two 'first fallen' leaves on my walk while we were in the middle of August.  I had to bring them home to give myself hope that our hot, wet summer was fading away. 

Most of the month of August I was working on a Fall punch needle picture and enjoying the thoughts of pumpkins, leaves falling and crows crowing -- does their call
really mean "Summer it almost over - Caw, Caw, Caw"?

I wonder if Mr. Crow is wearing a bell on his cap to let us know that time is moving on and we can celebrate the beautiful days of Fall any day now.
We heap up around us things that we do not need as the crow makes piles of glittering pebbles." - Laura Ingles Wilder


  1. It does feel good to be slipping into autumn. This summer has been far too hot for me!

  2. We've had some very pleasant days recently, and Autumn often brings as many bright, sunny days as soft, misty ones...

  3. Love your punching. My crows still visit. They are bringing their babies here for bread. I am not kidding you, if there is now bread in our driveway, one of them perches in a limb of the maple in front of our patio door and stares in and caws until I come out with bread. It's pretty amazing and I LOVE it. Terry says "your crow is here" and out I go. They never fly away. Just wait in a tree for me to bring food.

    Our weather person says we will have a hot and wet fall. I'm sick of it.

  4. A beautiful piece, Penny! I love it.
    What is it’s size?

  5. Mr. Crow is a delight, and I adore that bell! On into autumn, cooler weather and my favorite season.
