The Autumn leaves are starting to fall and the air is so clear and crisp. All week the highs are to be in the 60's. It's beautiful.

I worked on the garden a little bit this weekend. I'm most concerned about the luffa plants. They are a vine plant that climb over everything. Tons of yellow flowers but for weeks I didn't see any luffas. Then, I really dug under the leaves and I have tons of them. I'm so excited. They look like big fat cucumbers and you let them dry out. As I read, once the vine gets the first frost, you pick the fruit, peel the green outer layer and wash out all of the meat. Then dry and whalah, you have a luffa sponge. Cool!

Everyone I know will get one for Christmas. HA HA

I'm on the Christmas gift, quick making gift hunt right now. I searched for some patchwork stuffed fabric fruit or an eyeglass case made out of felt. But, I need to make about 30 of whatever I pick so I'm trying to be quick but yet something that looks nice. Last year I made Fabric baskets and knitted kitchen cloths and scrubbies. That was a lot of work and I wanted to keep them all. We'll see.

Happy Autumn!
