Every day I think that the foliage can't get any more brilliant and that our lake view won't be as pretty, but I am proved wrong when I see this:


It has been so very dry here that I thought our leaves would just turn brown, shrivel up, and fall off, but no, they have put on an incredible show this Fall.

Here are a couple of pictures of a commissioned scarf that I have just finished:





I'm really pleased with the way that it turned out. I will be mailing it off today and hope that the person who ordered it loves it half as much as I do.

Now that I have my new steamer, I have been spending a bit more time playing in the studio and steaming away while I work. Yesterday afternoon was just glorious....I had all of the doors open, my ipod playing some NPR podcasts I had downloaded, and the steamer cranked up. Heaven has gotta be something like yesterday afternoon!

PEACE

The leaves are all long gone here so it's nice to see yours. It has been warm but today it's gray and windy. The scarves are beautiful.

Wow is an understatement! I don't know which is more beautiful, the view of the lake or the scarf. Amazing! Cheers.
