Autumn Calling

October Meeting

Last week I went to my monthly guild meeting and look at the beautiful display that two of our members set up. One of them stitched all of those fabulous Prairie Schooler acorns. Aren’t they cute?! I think these are from a leaflet called, if you can believe it, Acorns (No. 65) – go figure. Such a sweet little addition along with the basket of gourds to the snack table.

I’ve made very little progress on Garden of Eerie, just getting started on the tree.

Eerie 101010

Most of my time has been spent on And They Sinned. I’ve spent so much time back and forth ripping out and restitching the clouds and I was determined to get it fixed. I brought this piece with me to guild night as my show and tell of what I’m currently working on.

I finally got the clouds lined up and in the right spots, and then went to work filling in the right hand side. It took all weekend, but I’ve got it filled in now. I stitched through a Teen Mom marathon on MTV and then all of Season 2 of Laguna Beach. That’s a lot of cloud filling in!

ATS 101010

And you can see that I worked on the vines on both sides in order to help with cloud placement. I also filled in the little motifs inside the clouds. Next step is to start on the center portion of the cloud. I’ll be so glad to use a color other than Pebble, that’s for sure. My photo is a little crooked, but when I take pics on Monday morning, I’m still a little bleary-eyed.

It looks like it’s going to rain this morning, and I’m wishing the weather would cool off just a tad more. If I could get my allergies under control and get over feeling like crap I would be very very happy. I’ve signed up for a 10k on Saturday, so I’d better get to feeling better asap!

I am grateful for some stitching time.

  11. Great progress on ATS – you got that thing almost licked! I did stitch on ATS yesterday. Need to take a photo and post something on my blog. It did stitch really slowly yesterday – don’t know why.

    Eerie is also looking good. Keep on stitching. Hope those allergies bid you adieu soon.

  19. Goodness, you really ripped all of that out? You’re so brave! And such a perfectionist! But well worth it, I think. What a stunning piece. Garden of Eerie too, by the way.

    Hope you feel better soon!

  31. The PS acorns are so gorgeous. I once stitched one for an exchnage and it was pure fun. Even the finishing. And I have always wanted to stitch them all for me, too, but nothing so far.
    Love your WIPs, very nice progress.
