Fallen...

With the dry weather, we see a few pretty leaves that have fallen. I think we won't have a pretty fall this year. I was so hoping to have long, glorious days of color.

I have started free-motion quilting my little quilt. It is going to take me a while if yesterday is anything to go by. Plus, I am trying not to sit down there for too long of a time. Anyway, I am sort of preoccupied with that and will just be on the computer here and there through the day.

It was 107ยบ here yesterday...we did have two rumbles of thunder that I heard but not a single drop of rain. We drove to Terre Haute yesterday and whole cornfields seem to just be drying and turning brown...and most of it not even as tall as me and I am only 5'3". Also seen a field of soy beans that we felt were dying. We have a chance of isolated thundershowers this weekend so am hoping and praying that we get some of it.

The leaf makes a good subject, but its reason for being on the ground already is not so good. I do hope you get some rain.

we had another quick storm yesterday (about 20 mins worth). then it went back to high humidity and sunshine. wishing we could get a day long storm or several days for that matter. hope all is well your way. good luck with your free motion stitching on your quilt. look forward to seeing the end result. have a great day/ weekend~

Those are some hot temperatures - I don't know how you all manage with it - I would certainly be struggling.
I hope you get some cooler weather and some rain soon.

Striking photo of the leaf. I like that. We had 86 today.

I hope you get some rain this weekend. We broke 100 degrees today. It has been hot here, too, but not as bad as in midwest.

I hope you get some rain soon, Rose. We got an inch on Friday, though Toronto just an hour south of us got just a trace. We felt very, VERY lucky.
