Hello everyone,
Yes, we had snow showers on Friday and yesterday. Luckily, it warmed up a bit each day to melt away. We still have a few more outdoor chores to finish up before winter really arrives.

Sorry I've been away so long. Shortly after my last post, my Dad injured his leg. He was finishing up some outside chores when his ATV tipped and landed on his leg... luckily nothing was broken - just an awful lot of bruising. So I have been running errands for my parents while he is laid up.

Also DH had some kidney stones removed on this past Friday.  So I have been quite busy- Although the procedure was long enough that I had plenty of time for some stitching.

I planned  to write last weekend, but we had a power outage that resulted in our computer no longer working when our power was restored. Our new computer has arrived and now I'm loading some of our programs... but I wanted to take a break and share with you some fall pictures and a recent finish.

Here is autumn scissor Keeper freebie from The Drawn Thread

I used an ornament size cut of fabric from a grab bag, GAST Threads and I substituted DMC 4130 for the called for needle Necessities. For the hanger I used DMC 936 as I didn't have any of the called for 930.

Here is one of our burning bushes.

And a cedar waxwing enjoying the mountain ash berries.

One more picture of the colorful leaves...

I hope to have a few more fall pictures for my next post.

Have a wonderful day!


  1. They called for it up in the mountains up here.... I have a few things left too and I keep running out of day light. Glad to hear your Dad was not seriously ensured and husband is feeling better too. Sweet little finish!

  2. I hope that everyone is well and recovered. Lovely fall pics. Love the little fob. Have a great week!

  3. Hope everyone is healing! Love your pictures ~ and although ready for the cooler weather! I am not ready for the snow!
