And add in fall outside work has begun too. Most likely the last time I am cutting grass for the season, but it was just getting to long to walk well in and had to be cut so I got a lot of it done last night and will try to get the rest done today. Then after that the mower will be used for mulching leaves and I will get all that clean up done gradually over the next six weeks or so.
On Thursday night I made more progress on Murrieta Stars and then on Friday I drew the rest of the lines on the first border for the chain and flower at the other end. I will still be putting a grid in here to. This much plus a little more to the right is done. I think I have gotten the hang of the bigger stitch now and the stitches are showing up a little more. I am using a King Tut variegated thread that is a mixture of black, very dark brown and almost a blue black I guess you could say. I was going to use a brown/gold/green color but when I started to do the flower in the corner you could tell that the stitches would fade in too much so I took them out and started over.
On Fall Harvest these two leaves are now done – I got that burgundy color one done after the photo was taken.
I brought my Xmas cactus’s in from outside where they have been out on the porch since April. The weather says we will be getting in the low 40’s around Monday night or so and that means it is time to bring the house plants back inside – they both grew a bit and one outgrew it’s spot in the bedroom so I have to find another place to put it so now it is just sitting in the living room – this one was my mother’s and I brought it home with me after she died three years ago.
I still need to go through all my rulers and things and hang them up – I have a peg board in Mike’s area in the corner and need to get that organized.
My long black peg board has nothing on it still – the others are Mike’s.
Mike’s area down from mine – he still has a lot of stuff to put away and add in – like the printer/scanner and he has boxes of things stored in the closet.
