Now that all my current swap commitments are finished I can concentrate on the Vintage Christmas Stocking Swap. I have been jotting and sketching various ideas in the small book that I carry everywhere. Finally the stocking was planned and I headed over to the fabric store. While carefully checking all the different fabrics one jumped out and called to me. It had Heather's name written all over it. I just had to buy this fabric and now there is a redesigned stocking pattern. This fabric is so amazing that another little item is planned for it as well.
In the last while I have found two different spider webs that I had to take photos of. The first one I found when we visited the Botanical Gardens a couple of weeks ago. A metal sculpture of a spider in it's web.The second picture is one of those that only come along once in awhile. I was walking through the living room and saw something sparkling in the window. The sun was just at the right angle to show off two spider webs attached to our awning. The were so beautiful I had to try and take a picture. Surprisingly, the picture show the webs very well. Click the picture for a closer view. The last four pictures are fall colour examples. The colours haven't been as good as other years and slower in coming. We have had an extremely hot, dry summer and the trees are very stressed. The first picture was taken out of the car and the other three were snapped through the window while we were driving.
