Dull day here today. It's raining off and on
and its getting a little cooler. I'm sitting here looking out my den window and I see leaves falling from the trees. It used to be true that we never had autumn--one day green leaves were on the tree and the next awful brown ones on the ground. Now we're actually seeing some color changes. This is my favorite time of year to head towards Tuscaloosa. Leaves are a beautiful orange, yellow and red treat.

I have a finish to go along with a couple of purchases. Any organization that supports breast cancer research has a place close to my heart and if a little sewing goes along with the help, that's even better. The pink snips and the needle minder are from Kelmscott Designs. My LNS has them in stock (Cross Stitch Corner on Coursey Blvd.). The Cat's Whiskers Design Studio has a limited edition scissors holder. It comes with everything except the fabby--white 32 ct. Belfast linen and the satin pink thread. It only took a couple of days to do the sewing and a couple of hours to put it together. Part of the proceeds go to support Breast Cancer Research and Education.
