Autumn in the Air…

While having coffee in the garden early this morning
I noticed a tinge of gold on the trees across the way…
A tangible sign of the glory to come!
There have been hints of Autumn in the early morning or evening breezes the past few weeks…
but this colorful clue is a delight!

The summer flew by and my time in the studio continues to be limited,
Fall classes at Minnetonka Center for the Arts begin in a week and half:)
I’m finishing up a rug commission and about to start a few pillows for another client,

but first I need to detour and stitch this little gift for a sweet couple that will be getting married soon!

Thanks for visiting ~ enjoy these summer days ~ Laurie
