We are almost past pumpkin season and well into the season of change. The deciduous trees have exposed their true colours and dropped their leaves. Seed heads have taken the place of flowers. Mushrooms have popped up in the grass. Yellows, oranges and warm browns dominate the landscape. The sky is darker blue with more grey than we like to see.

It is difficult not to start playing with yarns and fibres that mimic the colour of nature at this time of year. Every vista presents a possible colour scheme for a new project.
Fuzzy, warm yarns and fibres also have a strong attraction as the days are cooler. Now we have visions of afghans and shawls, blankets and sweaters, scarves and mitts that are waiting impatiently for our attention.
For the next month the focus of the guild will be on getting ready for the sale. Spinning wheels and looms are busy now. Knitting needles can be heard clacking at meetings.
We have completed the guild tea towel projects from the summer. Some of those tea towels will go into the silent auction at our show. The silent auction is always popular with bargain hunters and the proceeds from the auction support guild activities.
