Even in Texas there are signs of fall. The Oregon girl in me thoroughly enjoyed our rainy, cloudy, cool week. Time to break out the scarves and jackets. (And in celebration of the season I picked out to new scarves to brighten up my wardrobe.)
My boss hosted a guest speaker yesterday at HSU. Scott Acton from Ball Aerospace in Boulder, Colorado. He is part of a team working on the James Webb Space telescope. It will replace Hubble and go even deeper into the universe. As I listened to his presentation the quilter in me began wondering how to incorporate the incredible beauty that is out there into some of my future quilts. I think I may be puzzling over that for some time as I really have some UFO's that need to be tackled and completed first. But let the imagining begin.
For now, the hubs and I plan to enjoy fall break- a nice little tradition at HSU that means we have a three day weekend.
New on the site this week:

I came across this great quote yesterday: When something goes wrong in your life, just yell, "PLOT TWIST!" and move on. I will have to remember that then next time life throws me a twist. Read more in my post Things Do Not Always Go As Planned. I have heard from others that have similar memories of their mothers, please feel free to share your own!
And a few favorites from around the web:
Inspiring 93 year old- I have not done the splits since high school.
If you have never heard Chonda Pierce share her stories you are in for a treat.
Finally let me share some lovely images from space. Credit for these images goes toNASA, ESA and the Hubble Heritage Team (STScI/AURA).
I am a wife, a mother, a quilter, and most of all a follower of Jesus Christ.
