Many of the environmentally destructive high mountain developments around here are in foreclosure. Across the valley from my house, I can see the trees and vegetation quickly growing back on the north side of that mountain. Soon they will cover the ugly road cuts that were blasted for the Tiger Woods golf course that I doubt will ever be built. Unfortunately we still have to look at those ugly billboards that say it's coming soon - LMAO.
Here in the lower elevations the temperatures are pleasant and the sun is shining as those clouds hang up on the mountains. On my way to physical therapy Wed, I took some photos of the leaves changing - low to high elevations, and you can see the clouds hanging over the mountains to the north and along the Tennessee border where the rime ice has already formed. There are more photos of the pretty trees, leaves and mountains on this Fall 2011 Flickr Set.

A Cute Angle pattern by Cutting Line Designs
Earlier in the month I sewed up the latest pattern by Louise Cuttings, that she calls "A Cute Angle". I sewed two of the tops, one sleeveless with bias facings, and the jacket. I'm thinking of using the gray pinstripe silk for a Stella Top. More photos on this A Cute Angle Flickr Set.
