It's Fall!

Image result for clip art fall

The leaves are just starting to turn colors and some are even starting to fall. Now, if only the temperatures would drop a little, it would feel more like autumn. I'm ready for some cool, crisp air. I much prefer cooler weather than hotter and it sure has been a hot and humid summer. Kinda makes you wonder what winter will be like. 

Need a new project for this winter? Perhaps something for Halloween (it's not that far away). Take a look at the new designs that are on the way. A new project awaits or maybe just a new project to add to your stash.

This is a cute design but is that supposed to be a squirrel or a cat?
