The Domino Effect or one thing leads to another.

I got to thinking this week about how nothing stays the same and everything is always in flux.  I think that’s a good thing.

I was going to continue hooking my Chicken Dreams rug, but I realized that my third of the latest Meyvn round-robin rug is due this month.  For those of you new to my blog, Maggie’s Meyvns is a group of three of us, who also belong to our rug hooking group, Magdalena Rug Hookers.  We are Baby Meyvn, Middle Meyvn and Elder Meyvn.  I don’t mind admitting that I’m Elder Meyvn, but I will quickly say that all of our ages begin with the same numeral!

We do a round-robin, or response, rug challenge each year.  This year’s theme is Song Lyric.  I just finished my third of Middle Meyvn’s rug and I’m really excited for her to see it.  But that won’t happen yet.  We will soon be switching the rugs for the final third to be hooked.  I’ll be getting Baby Meyvn’s rug next.  It’s all very secretive and we won’t see our own rug until the end of the year when we have the Big Reveal.  I will post photos of all three rugs at that time.

So, getting back to the Domino Effect.  We have recently been having some very beautiful, cool, and low-humidity weather in south central Pennsylvania.  I love it!  The cooler weather inspired me to get out some of my fall decorating accessories, like my large amber bottles that I use as candleholders.  I even hung my Girls’ Night Out poster by Will Moses, the grandson of Grandma Moses.  This doesn’t usually happen until mid-September.

These autumnal changes also led me to change the blanket on our bed.  Off with the summery green and cream homespun and on with the red homespun blanket.  These woven blankets are from Family Heirloom Weavers in Red Lion, PA.  Their blankets, coverlets, rugs, etc, are all woven right here in PA.  Beautiful things!  So, the red blanket meant that I must make new bedroom curtains, of course!  The Waverly Pantry Plaid fabric in the photo is what I’ll be buying.  See how this works?  One thing leads to another. 

I could go on and on, but I’m off to the fabric store now.

There’s a lot of beauty out there and I’m loving the changes I see and feel!
