Happy Friday! Happy Labor Day Weekend! Woo-Hoo. I know many of you (most) are not happy to see Summer winding down, but Fall is my favorite season, so I am thrilled. This morning it is foggy and damp out, but the sun is supposed to come out and it is forecast to only be in the low 80's. I have a busy work-morning, but expect the afternoon to be easy (perhaps free of work??). Dee is coming over early afternoon and we plan to take a nice walk on the River Trail, then come back here for an icy beverage and some knitting time. The perfect way to start a holiday weekend.
A bit ago I showed a picture of a pumpkin on our picnic table (with my bird perched on top). Look at that pumpkin now!
Ha! Looks a bit creepy, no? We are guessing it is the woodpeckers who have been doing their thing on this poor pumpkin. There is an even bigger hole on the other side. It won't last much longer.
I did pick more green beans and cherry tomatoes yesterday. Both are still coming in like gangbusters. And Fletch has planted some fall things: lettuce, spinach, bok choy and Swiss chard. All are coming up.
I thought I would show you a picture of the sampler I've decided to work on. It's a Mexican sampler from The Scarlet Letter. Dona Dorothea I pulled this out of my chest filled with cross stitch stuff. This is where I left off several years ago.
I love all the figures in this - especially the checkerboard deer. I don't really have all that much left to do, but it is a lot of satin stitch which is time consuming and the colors don't thrill me. But, I've decided I really want to finish it...so I will! Hopefully by next TNT there will be some progress made on this. I have great plans for lots of knitting and stitching over this long weekend...we'll see how that goes!
Time to pour another cup of coffee and get myself going! Have a wonderful, long weekend everyone.
