Signs of Fall

So today it was over 90 here in St. Louis and humid. So although my calender says late September, this city hasn't realized it yet. Also the fall tv season has started which to me means increased stitching time. Tonight I recorded Desperate Housewives and will watch it and stitch. I am really looking forward to Grey's Anatomy and ER. All in all it will be good stitching time which could mean some finishes.

As for reading, I am still slumping. I have a ton from the library right now

While I have never read Evening Class, I have read most of Maeve Binchy's other books and I always enjoy them! Great reads!
