I hope you all had a lovely weekend filled with lots of sunshine, smiles and stitches. Mine was rather lovely. Perfect Autumn weather. (finally a weekend of no rain!) Saturday was a lazy day and I had no energy for anything. Sunday I got up early, thanks to my four-legged child, with energy to spare. After doing the laundry and vacuuming the house Rory and I headed outside to enjoy the sunshine and play.
Normally I wait until all the leaves are down before I rake. I hate raking twice especially since raking aggravates the carpal tunnel in both my wrists. (Yes, I try to remember the wrist braces before I do the raking.) But it was so nice and I really wanted to take a photo of Rory in the leaves. I love how his coat matches the leaves. So I pulled the rake out to get some of the leaves into piles.
I have a pretty large yard and will be doing lots of raking. Do you think I can get him trained to actually rake the leaves in a pile? Right now he just carrys the rake around.
Here are a few other photos of the colors around my yard.
The only stitching I have to show today is the Lizzie Kate exchange piece I received.
It is gorgeous and I absolutely love it!
Melissa stitched me a two sided, folded ornament. It is really neat looking and I just can't wait to hang it on my tree. The finishing on it is really unique. I hope you can tell from the photos that it is lined with fabric as well as double sided. Isn't it fabulous? Thank you Melissa.
I know I said I was going to start on LHN Winter Wonderland but I haven't quite finished my last exchange piece. Almost but not quite. Maybe today.
Until next time................
Love and stitches
and licks from Rory too.
