I have some stitching updates. I made some progress on Freight Train. I never knew there were so many shades of gray/black. This is only the first of 6 train cars. So I have a long way to go on this one.
Next up was pinecones. I am still struggling along with this one. I did manage to stitch 4 pinecones. I didn't stitch the full week on it. I figured some progress was better than none.
Most of my time (when not at work) has been spent raking leaves. Last weekend we helped my sister rake her yard, then we raked my yard. We is my son and I. Then on Monday (no school for son) we raked the grandparents yard. It was a beautiful warm sunny day excellent for raking leaves. This is a picture of my yard this morning. Most of the leaves have now fallen off as we had strong wind and rain for 2 days. I will be spending my afternoon out raking.
This week I am back to stitching cat ornaments. Hope to finish another ornament this week. I did stop into my lns after raking leaves on Monday. I bought alot of beads, kreinik braids and I picked up 2 free pieces of matt board to finish my ornaments. I am still working on kitting up future starts.
