It seems like once I get comfortable with one season, the next is on its heels.  That's how I felt this morning, as I noticed the leaves beginning to brown up and drop to the ground.  Fall is not exactly pretty here in South Louisiana (albeit much much cooler).  And even though this was one of the hottest summers on record, I'll miss tank tops, flip flops and these ruby-throated hummingbirds.  One of my potters made several of these small hummingbird dishes for the shop and I just love them...

almost as much as my hummingbirds.  The ruby-throated will be here for another good month before they begin making their journey across the Gulf of Mexico.  I'm always amazed how something so tiny can go so far.  There's more and more word that other species of hummingbirds are starting to winter in our southern I will be maintaining my feeders for whomever may visit.
I've been a busy bee in the shop and online.  New from French General are these beautiful season inspired embroidery floss collections.  I have a limited number listed on Etsy; there is a beautiful free pattern from French General using these threads.
Also, some winter fabrics from Moda.  Two fat pack or fat quarter collections,  Tole Christmas, a more folky traditional collection and my personal favorite, Winterberry, a little more contemporary with that pretty robins egg blue throughout (that color is still as popular as ever.)
And last but not least, a reorder on Bohin "Middle Ages" embroidery scissors.  They are small, surgically sharp and will last forever.
