It's raining leaves!!

Sorry for not being around for so long - life just seems to get in the way!! but in a good way!! for the most part. Thought I would put up some pictures of what my yard looks like at this point in time - it rains leaves everyday and my yard is just covered. On this day it actually was raining!! you can see the rain drops on the picture below.
My Azalea bushes are in full bloom also.
Even the Camellia bushes are blooming. I just love this yard it blooms something all year long. The previous owner did an incredible job planting this yard, it is forever beautiful.Here is a close up of a Camilla bud.Yes, these Camillas are pink, the white ones will pop out in February/March! The bees are happy can you tell!!Will hopefully post some stitching soon - have to wait until some of the stitching is received by its new owners.

Hope you all are having a wonderful Holiday Season - We are in the throes of Christmas Decorating now. We had a nice quiet Thanksgiving, but Christmas will make up for it when our son comes in for a few weeks from San Francisco and my sister and niece from Ohio.

Thanks for dropping by --- I am hoping to be a better blogger and blog reader sometime soon, I hope!!!

Christmas Ornament Exchanges

Well the holidays are just around the corner and I have already started decorating for Christmas. At least upstairs!!! Fall is still the main attraction on the first floor, but upstairs I put up my little Christmas tree that holds my handmade ornaments.

Below is from Julianne from our Christmas Ornament Exchange group. Isn't this mitten just darling. I so love the overdyed threads and this color red/mix is just beautiful -- thank you Julianne.
Here is the fabric backing, just so perfect!Below is my exchange piece that went to Rosalie.
Hope everyone is enjoying the cooler weather and the stitching for the holidays.

Thanks for dropping by to visit. ---- Roberta
