Monday's fall quote


The fall quote for the last few Monday's has been a poem. I hope these poems will inspire you to stop and take time to appreciate nature's beauty in this fall season. Why not be inspired enough to start a stitching project about fall's bounty or sew a quilt full of autumn's amazing colors?

These poems and quotes are also to inspire you to see the magic in words. Words are very powerful and can paint a picture as beautiful as needlework or a quilt.

The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry's cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.

The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I'll put a trinket on.

~~~ Emily Dickenson ~~~
