Fall is in the air

Cool temps. at night now, fall is on it's way. I will need to start getting my flower beds cleaned and ready for winter.
Cantata rehearsal went better than I had expected, I am going to enjoy this new experience in my life. Today I am working at the church making baby quilts for our Faith in Action program. I organize the quilt portion of the event and decided to have an extra day to sew this year. This way we will have more quilts to send to the mission in Mexico that we help out each fall. I am hoping to have a room full of ladies to work on the quilts. We will work again on Sunday and then I will mail the quilts off to their new home.
My card today is string embroidery, tulips to remind us of spring. The little butterflies are easy to make out of silk flowers. Just clip off one petal, glue to your card attach a crystal for the body and draw in the antenna and flight path.
Have a great day,
