Leaves falling.

As I sit in my sewing room looking out the window I am seeing a sea of golds, browns, and reds. The Oak Tree in my front yard is over 30 feet tall and full of gold leaves. The wind is blowing from the south and I see the leaves falling and blowing. I am thinking by next week we will have to rake the leaves. In no time at all we will be looking at beds of white fluff. The Farmer’s Almanac is saying this is going to be a hard winter. I have my bird seeds ready for the winter.

For the first time in a few months all my “Must Do’s” from the sewing room are done. Now for some time to clean and organize some hand sewing on while on our travels.

This year I am going to try and make my own Christmas Cards. A first for me, but hopefully not the last. Now after lots of frustration I may be purchasing them this year. We will have to see. Do you make your Holiday Cards or do you mail out Christmas Cards?

Here is a little trip thru a Cemetery just about 1/2 mile from our home.

  1. Those really are gorgeous trees! I have made Christmas cards in the past, but we haven’t been sending the out the last few years with postage getting so expensive. I just finished stitching my last stocking ornament together. We have plunging temps and sleet that turned to snow, it’s been a good afternoon sitting by the fire!


  2. Lovely colours.
    We have our first snow on the mountains just opposite – let’s hope it stays up there and doesn’t come further down. I like looking at it – but from a distance.
    I have made my own Christmas cards in the past. I usually keep them very simple but not sure I’ll have time this year. When we first moved to France I was sending and receiving more than 60 cards (I wasn’t making them at that stage) but that number has reduced considerably. I used to take it personally but people are definitely cutting down on the amount of cards they send due, probably, to postage costs, environmental concerns, e-cards, etc. It used to be hard to find Christmas cards at all in France but you do see them for sale now occasionally although they’re probably only being bought by us foreigners.
