Ahhh, back on real time, and all is right with the world. Okay, the world is currently hosed, but my internal clock is MUCH better! Nothing like getting my hour back! I really wish that Daylight Savings didn't affect me so much - but it does, so what can I do? Even more motivation to get to AZ, where they just didn't buy into it :) In other news, fall is very definitely here, about a month early. And thanks to the rain we've had, we actually have fall colors to look at, instead of trees going all crispy critter and dropping leaves in July & August.
I took over 200 pictures yesterday, while waiting for a late-afternoon game to start. You can see the keepers here.
On to the stitching bits :) First, since I started a Boo block at my stitching group on Saturday, I wanted to finish that up on Monday. Which I did. Then I was compelled to start the next one, which also got finished :)
The two blocks I finished.
Then the overall - 8 of 12 done - now that it's November and Halloween is past...
I also made some sporadic progress on my lunch/travel project, Purrfect Summer Day. I only had a couple of lunches in my office, so didn't get the black kitty done like I thought I would - but he might get done today :)
I received the next piece in my Round Robin, Anita's Wiehenberg sampler, in the turquoise color scheme. WOW is this thing pretty!!! I had to put stitches in it as soon as I got it out! So I did - a small motif done next to the dark crown, and then a start on a large one to the right:
My main piece this week was AD Samplar 4 Saisons. I got all the way across on Spring, so now have to work down and to the tree. The first page is complete, except I think 5 stitches , and a good chunk of 2 & 6 (right & down). And, good for me, I DIDN'T leave the X out - I think I actually got ALL of the letters in the alphabet this time :)
On Halloween, we didn't really have anything going on - we haven't given out candy for a few years, because no one comes to our subdivision, except on a last call on the way home from the subdivisions where all the rich folks live :) Including the smart-ass teenagers that were pounding on the door (after very quietly getting onto the porch) at 10:30. Yeah, funny; there's nothing more hilarious than two dogs losing their f&^%ing mids because soemone has the balls to be knocking on their door at night - and they didn't hear them coming up the steps, either time. Anyway, I decided to get out 6 Bats in honor of the day - and I got past the frog attack! Again, another one with progress, now that it's November...
This picture shows the fabric color pretty good :) Still hating that WDW, but I am about 1/2 done, so I imagine I'll live :)
This week, back to Lady & Unicorn. I need to get Lyne's sampler out and work on it, too - it seems to be a good compliment to L&U, for some reason - lots of color changes, but no blends and way easier :) Who knows what else I'll work on - I lose Friday night to working at the local arena to raise funds for my son's soccer, and I think games Saturday & Sunday both again. I'm not expecting a banner week on L&U - but you just never know... Until next week, happy stitching everyone!
