Making Me Smile

The garden's looking pretty sparse and brown these days, so imagine my surprise when I spotted this:
A lone zinnia just as bright and cheerful as can be. It was positioned perfectly as if to say, "look at me, I'm beautiful". Now that makes me smile. And because I can't seem to get enough of fall and the gorgeous color we're having this year, here's another photo of the view:
I was able to squeeze about ten minutes of sewing time into my day yesterday. I'm making some napkins, this time for myself. The fabric is from Heather Bailey's Fresh Cut line and is leftover from a quilt I made a couple of years ago.

That's what's making me smile today.
