I told Donna I wanted to make a fall wreath, as I have in past years. And I did. I was out walking one morning and couldn't resist picking up the bright-colored leaves. I pressed them for about a week in some heavy books at work (Periodical Indexes ARE good for something in 2010.Ha). I bought another straw wreath, as I had tossed my previous one after having used it for several years. Mike found me some more staples--and Voila! A fall wreath. Real leaves, made with real love. I usually make one with mostly yellow leaves, but the red ones were just so vivid. There are still a lot of yellow leaves around and I'm tempted to make another. But I'll resist. This one's hanging on my front door and will be until I take it down for Christmas decos in December. It's my one and only crafty thing I can and will do. Other than sewing--which hasn't happened in a good long time!
Tandy and Kids came up in mid-October. It was Caroline's 9th birthday and also happened to be SUU's homecoming weekend. We went to the parade. Tandy and Gail took about 100 pictures. I took this one, and one of grumpy Ella. The people NOT in the picture are Grandma Liebhardt, Gayela, Gail, Jonathan and me. We were a formidable crowd, as usual. ;-) Oh, Grandma brought a couple of extra kids, too! (her home teacher's youngest two)
