I live in Arizona as maybe you notice when I mention it occasionally and in October we are usually experiencing 90+ degree days regularly right up to Halloween. Ugh, right??!! Although it seems like this year has been a bit cooler than normal, our family still wanted to escape the end of summer heat and so we went to visit our folks in Indiana for fall break week! We brought the heat with us as the first days of the week were in the 80s, which is unusual there! At first we didn’t feel like we were experiencing fall at all. But, by the end of the week it cooled down and while the fall colors were scant, at least we felt the chill in the air!
Traveling with 5 kids is never much of a vacation–it is a “family trip!” However, since the kids were going to be enjoying lots of grandparents time I brought my stitching to make it as enjoyable and productive as I could for me too!
And I was productive! I have 2 finishes!
Here is Mr. Nutley Owl from Just Nan. The stitching is finished! I put the beads on too, after I took this photo, so he just needs to be sewn up!
And…Lazy Alphabet! It’s done! Yay!!
I’ll aim to get Mr. Owl sewn up for the Smalls SAL check in and also head off to Hobby Lobby for a frame for the alphabet. It feels so good to be winding down the year and getting things checked off my “Stitch in 2018” list!
