Hello and Good Morning!
Thanks so much for all your kind words and best wishes for Colin & Mailing. My heart is full.
Work continues it's frantic October pace. So Much Going On!! Truly it is like this EVERY year, but I tend to forget how crazy it is. Then add in the wedding things and trying to take a few days off and it gets even nuttier. Yesterday was no exception, but I did manage to get a little bit of archery in during the late afternoon. Then in the middle of dinner (thankfully NOT while I was cooking), our power went out and stayed out for about an hour. Not sure what the issue was, but at least it eventually came back on. I actually used a battery operated Ott lite to read our book after dinner!
Fletcher has been busy with gardening stuff. He planted a bunch of greens - several different varieties of lettuce, Swiss chard, baby bok choy, etc. - in a raised bed box and now is re-purposing old windows to make a cold frame.
Late yesterday he went out and picked a bunch of the greens for a salad to go with dinner (which was pasta with red sauce). Yum! And, we are still harvesting cherry tomatoes😋 - the larger tomatoes are all pretty much still green. Guess I will be cooking up another batch of fried green tomatoes.
Now it is Tiny Needle Tuesday and I have started another sampler. As I mentioned last week, it is a Quaker style sampler called Autumn Forest. I figured that was appropriate given the time of year. Here is a link so you can see what it will (eventually) look like. I do love all the different animals in it and I've always liked Quaker style samplers. It is a big one...323 by 253 stitches. I'm using 36 count fabric and stitching over two threads, so the finished size of mine will be roughly 18 by 14. I'm not there yet though!
That's my start. Just two motifs finished, but I'm enjoying it a lot.
Now it's time to get back to work. Emails have been flying this morning and I have several spreadsheets I need to update and work on. Hope you all have a wonderful day!
