Fall is here











I have been reading other people's blogs and enjoying their stitching pieces that represent fall. I love fall but fall in Florida is not like the fall's I experienced in Kentucky. I can remember driving to Fallsburg Elementary in October and passing some of the most beautifully colored trees. One was the most vivid scarlet and the other was gold. They were so gorgeous and after a rain their bark was almost black and a beautiful contrast for the bright colors. I don't have those gorgeous colors here in the Tampa area but you can still tell that it is fall. I got up this morning and it was actually 59 degrees! That little bit of a nip in the air put a spring in my step. I have been enjoying the migrating birds too. We have had a lot of small warblers visiting in our yard for the past few days.




I haven't had a chance to post a pic of my bookmark from Evalina in the Yukon. She had my name for the ILCS bookmark exchange.Evalina sent a beautiful card that she had made, the bookmark, and several packets of tea.Evalina has a really interesting blog that you should check out. She has already had snow and has some pics up.






I haven't had a lot of time to stitch but I have made a little progress on LHN's Little Women of Virtue, "Gentle and Kind." Saturday I pulled out Aiden's birth sampler and worked on it. I finished the giraffe! It really is a cute sampler and I think it will look nice when it is finished. I am suppose to pick up my framed, "Joyful and Caring" in a few weeks.
Thank you to everyone that has stopped by and taken a look and thank you to those of you that leave comments and those that have become followers. I really appreciate you taking the time to peruse my blog. Happy Stitching to everyone and enjoy your Fall.

Your WIPs look good. Nice package from Evalina. Here in IL, fall is definitely here, too. Both in colors and temps.

Beautiful stitching. The bookmark exchange is wonderful. I love the card you got. Fall has arrived in CT too. The leaves are changing and its been raining a lot. But if it rains too much the leaves wont stay on long.

Hello dear Angela,
Your framed and stitched pieces are very beautiful. I enjoyed looking at your vacation pics and your beautiful family. Some of your pics reminded me of some childhood family picnics in Key West. Very good memories. I thank you for your visit and your kind words.
Hugs.
Jackie.
