Fall seems to have finally arrived here and with it brought some restlessness. I've been floundering around trying to stitch, trying to read, trying to get some things done around the house and I can't seem to do any of it. I need to be working on stitching my Hare Pyns smalls, but I just can't seem to concentrate long enough to get any further on them. So, on October 1st I headed over to a friend's house for a stitching day. I thought it was a perfect day to pull out my Garden of Eerie WIP from last year to work on. I had an absolutely fabulous day and actually got a bit farther on GoE. I had a lot of fun stitching on this seasonal piece, so I hope to get some more done on it.
And this weekend we actually had some rain! I was so inspired by the cooler, rainy weather that I decided to do a little decorating.
I'm wishing I had some of those Halloween Blackbird stockings stitched and finished. They'd look awfully cute in my house!
At guild last week, the program was making a little wool pumpkin. I have to say, I'm pretty proud of mine. Thank goodness I had lots of helpers sitting with me, otherwise my pumpkin would have been more of something you see in the "after" portion of that show Punkin' Chunkin' (if you haven't seen this, you're missing out). But, I love my little pumpkin, so I had to set him out with my wool acorns I purchased from another guild member a few years ago.
And I'm kicking myself for not having Jenny Bean framed yet. Drat. She would look so good hanging in here!
Anyway, I think I'm ready for fall, I think I'm on the way to getting my groove back, and I'm hoping there's a Pumpkin Spice Latte in my future.
I am grateful for stitching days with friends.
