Weekend Update

As I mentioned in an earlier post I decided I would stitch one freebie every month from my stash since I have so many of them piling up on me. I did this little piece during my lunch hour this week.
Autumn Leaf
by Tink Boord-Dill

My friend Kate and I are doing a SAL of the Christmas Double Flip Its by Lizzie Kate so we started together on Friday evening at our monthly meeting. After much searching online I find this wonderful 28 ct. linen banding at Violarium

I also took some photos of what is "blooming" around our house and posted them to our photo blog.

And last I leave with a photo that I took of hubby this morning as he left for his Tour de Cure ride (sponsored by the American Diabetes Association). Patrick rode 45 miles at an average speed of 11 miles an hour, did 2200 feet of climbing and raised $1089 with the help of our friends and coworkers. His company along with 197 riders raised close to $79,000. Thanks again to all who donated.
