Outdoor Wednesday - Leaded Window

I love this version of a leaded window. The picture was taken in London on a walkabout.

Hop on over to for some fun outdoor photos and stories.

It's raining - Yeehaa :)

We've had some pretty solid rain since yesterday. So refreshing. It's also cold enough to open up the windows and air out our house.
While my son was playing volleyball this morning I went for a walk round our chapel grounds and took some photographs.
Here's my autumn inspiration photos for this week. We have lots of trees in the Nashville area that lose their bark. I love them.

Celebrate Color to find out what it's all about.

Well now that school is back in session I am so ready for the glories of autumn to arrive with all the crisp weather and rich colors of the season. Okay so leaves and plants will be dying off but I'll be able to stitch again without my needle slithering out of my fingers :)
During September, October and November a lovely group of artistic/crafty ladies are celebrating with lots of projects, tutorials, contests and prizes. If, like me, you have become a puddle in the summer heat and humidity this might be just the thing to get in the sewing groove again. Thanks to Rachel (Stitched in Color), Emma (Emma Lamb), Mollie (Wild Olive) and Shannon (luvinthemommyhood).

I have lots of autumnal colors in my fabric, threads, patterns, books, pencils, paints etc. Once we get back from dropping our daughter off at the MTC in Provo, Utah I plan on "taking back" my sewing room and creating again.
My inspiration fall photo was taken last year at Belle Meade Plantation. I'll be going there again soon. We also live right beside the Natchez Trace. Maybe this is the year to tackle the scenic drive that I hear a lot about from others.
