Just Stopping By to Say Hello!

It's been a bit quiet on this blog for a while, but I am still here!  Our container of furniture has just made it to St. Louis from Germany and so we'll be moving again shortly - can't wait to have a bit more space and to be reunited with our own things.  I've been thinking about all the things I can make once I have my sewing machine set up, but I guess I've got to get the apartment straight first as we have visitors coming for Christmas!

In the meantime I've been making the most of some glorious autumn days. Yesterday I went and climbed the bluff above the Meramec river (above).  Beautiful views!  I've been enjoying living in the city for the last few months, but it is nice once in a while to get out into the countryside!

And there is no shortage of autumnal tones in the city - the Gateway Arch park is turning a lovely shade of russet (above: from the top balcony of our building). 

Now I really should think about packing up some of the stuff that we've accumulated in the last 6 months ....  I'll be back after the move!
