Happy First Day of Fall!! It's a bit warmer here today - my phone says 40. It is still dark, so I can't really read the thermometer we have on our patio (even with the patio light on!). I never did get out for a walk yesterday. I ended up being fairly busy work-wise, but also spent the entire day sneezing and blowing my nose. I don't know if it was/is allergies or a cold or what. I also could not get warm! It doesn't help that there is no heat in my home office! Yikes!! We have electric baseboard heat and each room has a thermostat. The one for the office room stopped working several years back and we just ignored it because we rarely used the room. Our neighbor, Rob, will be over to replace the thermostat before we get into Winter for sure. I also discovered one of the windows was still open - letting 37 degree air blow in - lol. No wonder I was cold!
Fall is being ushered in on Tiny Needle Tuesday. I don't have much to show this week. The third and final section at the bottom of my sampler is taking FOREVER! I'm liking the way it looks - a lot, but geeze it's taking a long time to stitch. There are so many color changes and then weaving in the ends on the back side....here is a picture of the whole thing and then a close up of that final section.
You can see that the final section is divided into 3 bands. I still have some stitching on the top band. The middle one is similar to the top and then the bottom one is (thankfully) just one color and the pattern is like a Greek key - very pretty. My hope is to have this finished by next week, but we'll see. My sock knitting is also calling to me...
I'm going in to my office later this morning. I have some things to go over/review/work on with my boss Bill and then I have a meeting from 1-2 with finance to review one of our year-end procedures. Our fiscal year ends September 30th and then the scramble begins to finalize those numbers and start a new fiscal year fresh.
Somehow we ended up with an invasion of fruit flies in our house. Oy! We have traps out, but it takes a long time to be rid of these pesky devils. And, they get in everything! I'm constantly wiping down counters with disinfectant.
Well, time to do a bit of work before heading out. Wishing you a beautiful Fall day!
